Falling In Love...

Sunday, October 5, 2014

Autumn is a delight for the senses. Crisp apple cider, rustling leaves, crackling bonfires, woolen sweaters, pumpkin spice...there's so much to love about Fall!
I was inspired by the sentiment in this Impression Obsession clear stamp set. The romance is adorable, and I love the way the words themselves, begin to drift downwards. So sweet!
I highlighted the sentiment by creating a whimsical, colorful, watercolor background. The soft watercolors are so fun. I love painting with them.

And speaking of love....the very best part of my week happened this past Friday. 
My oldest son got married!
It was a beautiful ceremony that filled us all with tears of joy. I couldn't be happier!!

  15. Wow! What a fabulous tag and a gorgeous wedding! The mix of soft pastels in your background with the striking Fall leaf was pretty incredible. And that sentiment! It was tender to me-- I could literally hear Nat King Cole singing those words and his soft crooning voice always reminds me of my dad. So thanks for sharing such a beautiful project and post on so many levels!
