Sharing with You, My Friends....

Are these lanterns not beautiful???!!!

We are going in to the deep of autumn on
our way to 'you know where' and when I
chose these colors, I thought how perfect
they would be to create something with
soft tones as a contrast.

Of course, you recognize this graphic as our
next challenge at The Play Date Cafe.

I am very excited that my old 'boss'
(and I mean that old as in 'previous'  : )
is our sponsor AND guest designer!
Spending time on their DT was so much 
fun and her stamps are UNbelievable!
I love this UK company and you will too.
Can I just say on another note...sort of....

I love my design team at The PDCC...
I say that very thoughtfully because without them,
this challenge would not exist.
Yes, the team goes through a transformation
every six months or so, but it's the 
'team factor'
that I am speaking of.

Long story short as I share....
My family is going through a very difficult time
right began on Tuesday, my 19th wedding anniversary
to the love of my life, Paul which we share
with my middle grandson Caleb, who celebrated
his birthday number five!

It's a part of real life that can't just go away.
I wish I could share more, but it's just not possible.
For those of you who are 'pray-ers', 
I covet your prayers.  
Your kind thoughts and virtual hugs are
very sustaining.

Blogging is like no other medium.
To run a challenge and not have the strength
to create a project is tough, but with the
support of my team and your gracious understanding,
next week can be another story....
and I thank you for that.
