Finally online!

I've had real, live internet service at my home for about 24 hours now and I feel much better already :).  City permits were a huge delay, but now we're all hooked up!  I think getting online was the last thing on our list of to-do's that will make life feel normal and routine again.  ***big sigh***

Now back to my regularly scheduled scrapping and sharing...

On October 1st, Scrap That Poetry celebrated its first anniversary.  Congratulations to Jennifer and STP!  To make the latest challenge even more special, Heidi created a sketch that I LOVED working with.

The challenge poem, "The Rock Cries Out to Us Today" by Maya Angelou, is full of possibilities for layout inspiration.  I decided to focus on the lines "Each new hour holds new chances/For new beginnings," instantly thinking of my youngest, Jaxon.

And on October 3rd The Studio had a new challenge go up, this one about your home.  I'm really into making yarn wreaths now, and I made one for fall that is now hanging on my front door.  It will soon be replaced with the Halloween wreath (inspired by "The Raven") I made - I'll post a picture of that one soon.

The green fabric and felt flower comes from the Festive Fall Bouquet in my shop.  If you haven't stopped by lately, there are more Halloween and autumn embellishments available.

I've missed you all and hope that you are having a wonderful day! Tessa


  1. welcome back to the WWW! :) I REALLY like both of these layouts, the embellishments are WONDERFUL!

  2. Congrats on having the internet! I'm sure it feels great to be back online. :)

    Love how you used the big bracket papers on both layouts!
