And back in the fall!

Well, I have been missing in action for pretty much the entire summer. Caught up in school and various other things, but life has been going well. I am eagerly anticipating my mother's visit at the end of September. It is so odd to think that I have been living in my current apartment for 3 years and my mother has never seen it other than in pictures! The only downside to her visit is that it is in lieu of my taking a trip back home this fall. I'm definitely missing all my friends back home! Thus, I thought I should make a card!

It is based on an old SFYTT by Jen Del Muro that I had loved when I saw it but hadn't gotten around to trying out until now. It also gave me a chance to play with a bunch of things I've gotten over the summer. I just picked up some cheap iridescent watercolour paints. I couldn't afford to kit myself out with Twinkling H2O's, so when I saw a palette of simlar paints for much less in DeSerres I was very excited! I used them on the teddy bear, the flowers on the Bella's pj's, and her slippers. I just love the image too! Definitely love my Bellas!

Hope everyone has a great first week of September. I am feeling a bit shocked that for the first time in 22 years September does not mean the start of new classes! I am still working on my comprehensive exams. One down! I write the next at the end of September.

Ink: Brilliance Coffee Bean
Papers: coral Bazzil textured cardstock, dark brown Bazzil textured cardstock, Dream Street "Art Nouveau - Muse," white cardstock
Extras: watercolour pencil crayons, iridescent watercolour paints, Dahlia Box Blends flowers by Petaloo, brushed pewter brads, brown pen
