Overwhelming Awesomeness!

Hi Everyone!

I am back from a month long vacation on the East Coast and it is difficult to be back into the swing of things.  Did I blink and suddenly it's September??  I honestly don't know what happened!  But nevertheless, September it is.  I must admit, I am enjoying the cooler temperatures and this is my favorite time of year.

This morning we have another great sketch for you over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  You should really pop by and play along, we would love to have you!  Tomorrow you will see all of the wonderful creations by the Design Team if you are looking for further inspiration to help excite you to play along.

Here is this week's sketch:

I decided I would also play along this week with the awesome colour challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary.  This week is Pear Pizzazz, Lost Lagoon and Smoky Slate.  This is not a colour combination that I would normally use but this seems to be all the rage these days.  It is all over the holiday publications I have been seeing lately (shhh...let's not talk holidays just yet although I have received some great new stamp sets to play with!!!).


Here is my creation:

As an aside, I thought I would share a couple of pics with you from my trip to Newfoundland.  It was gorgeous weather and the icebergs will still around - it was spectacular!

I even got to eat iceberg ice - it was so fabulous!  An experience I had never had before!
