Lilacs in the Fall

Hi... is it still Monday??  Oh it's Tuesday... well I had a fun time over the past few days... On Sunday I tore apart my studio and re-organized it... !!!  WOW... I am a fairly organized person... but I still found things that I didn't remember having... and some that I don't EVER remember buying... scary, isn't it??/  Anyway Sunday came and went...  and the studio was ready for all the wonderful Challenges on Monday...  Oh I still also had one from SUNDAY...

The SUNDAY STAMPER... Hels asked that the color purple be used... well again it happened... on Saturday I didn't have anything to do.... maybe I should say that I didn't have anything that I wanted to do... so I started looking thru some of my older Sizzix die cuts... (that is really when I realized I needed to re-organize the studio...  there were die cuts that I have that I had totally forgotten.... not good)  anyway... I found this lilac and thought that I never really got into this die cut and maybe it would be a good project for today...  so on Saturday I cut out all these three different size flowers... and colored them and put the lilac in a pile of things to use at some time...  lilacs were not going to used with fall coming up... 

So when I saw that Hels wanted us to use purple... it was not really a surprise... I had the first part done...  LOL...

So that is how Monday started out...  and I knew that I would be doing a few projects... so my studio got real messy... and nice and quickly too..  way too fast... I was having FUN... 

Here is what I created...

Challenges:  Sunday Stamper     use purple tones 

The Kraft Journal   anything goes 

Craft Hoarders Anonymous     Use flowers 

Sizzix Challenge    Use a Sizzix Die (a very old Lilac die) 

As you will see there are a lot of layers going on here... 
and the pictures will generally tell the story... 

I do hope you have enjoyed this... and hope you have a fantastic day ahead... 
Thanks so very much for stopping by for a visit... and hope you will stop back a little later for another card... 
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
