I hope you enjoyed my week of cards! Here is my last one. I love the rainbow fishes. I also made one with a narwhal that was mighty awesome, but I don't think I ever took a photo of it. Bummer!

Happy Monday! We survived a big storm this weekend. The storm actually fizzled out tremendously. Now all the leaves are off the trees! I just wanted to share my layout for the Memory Nest. This is the third background I made for this sketch. My first attempt used gesso and glitter and makes for a fabulous winter page, but not so much for fall. My second attempt I used different paper and when I went to water color on it, I got a big streaky mess. So this is try number three! Actually, the page looked really cool when I fist made it. It was kind of like an abstract path going through the fall mountains. I almost wanted to just keep it that way, but I didn't want to make a fourth background.
I did put a real leaf on this layout. I used this super stinky spray stuff that I use for my charcoal drawings to seal the leaf and hopefully preserve it. If it ends up falling apart, then I'll have to find some fake leaf to replace it. I gave this page a lot of dimension to help give the leaf space so it doesn't get crushed. We shall see how it holds up.

Every morning I walk my daughter to school. We go to a walking only school, but live right on the boundary, so we have a long walk. It's 1.1 miles to be precise in one direction. It wouldn't be so bad if it was a flat walk, but there is a nice valley in-between. So it literally is uphill both directions! Really, it's my pregnant belly that makes the walk less enjoyable. Anyways, the walk is always a time where my daughter displays her energy and her quirky sense of style. I really do like the walks.
This is my layout for the Memory Nest. I just love the fall colors of it! I had one of those fabulous moments that makes you fear the layout might become a disaster with this layout. Five minutes before I was about to take a picture of my layout, my ever so adorable son took a purple marker and colored on it. Luckally, he colored on the wood embellishment only and it was a washable marker, so I could clean it all off!
