Thinking of You...This Fall

Just in time for fall! Autumn starts today around 11:45 am EST. The colors are always so beautiful. This card reflects the start of a new season. I used my Scor-Pal at the bottom to score a few lines for added dimension. I kept it simple since it is for a man who is having surgery next month. I hope the colors lift his spirits.

I am waiting on my first SU! order. I took a long time to decide exactly what I want, now I just cannot wait for it to get here! I did get my PTI order last week, so I'm sure I'll be playing with that set this week!

This weekend, I purchased a new camera! It is the Sony DSC-H50. Boy, that camera is BAD! I wanted something major, but 'cute'...meaning in size. The big cameras and the idea of changing lenses and flashes does not appeal to me, but their specs do, so that's why I decided on the Sony. I have not gotten a chance to play with it like I wanted because I went to the movies to see the new Samuel Jackson movie, Lakeview Terrace and also played the Wii...hard and today my arms hurt! We played the Wii Fit and a new one called Game Party. I will be playing this more this week. It includes favorites such as trivia, skee ball, beer pong, and shuffleboard. But, my all-time favorite is bowling on Wii Sports. Needless to say, that's how I threw my arm out! I hope to play more and do some crafting and photography this week. We'll see what takes precendence!

Anyway, I will post some photography shots as well as I embark on a new 'related' hobby. Boldlifestyle is going to start hosting photography challenges. I can't wait to participate! Please visit the blog for all of the details!
