When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Peachy Keen Challenge #38

Being sicked was no fun. After couple of days being in bed, I now get to play with my friends at Peachy Keens. This week's challenge is to create a layout or project based on the season - Fall.  No handmade card this time.  Theme varies from Autumn to Halloween to Harvest elements with the exception of Thanksgiving feast. 
I love Fall.  Got bunch of reasons to love it...  With this challenge, I am incorporating - Recycling.  I got two projects for this challenge and the 1st is a "Recycled Ribbon Spool Ornament/Hanging wreath":
 See how messy my table was...
 Assembly time
 Finally, after a day of working on this project, it's now done...
 The project is actually better in real life.
 I'm so pleased with myself...

 Here's a much closer look...
 Look at those corns!
 A glimpse of the side to show that these are actually ribbon spool.

A "thank you" sweet treat
My Cricut Imagine, which was an early Christmas gift from my dear sweet husband was delivered last week while we were in LA.  We were upset that it might get stolen if it would sit in the front porch for days.  Tried calling the shipper and UPS to hold the delivery but no one was willing to make an extra effort to help us.  DH called DR Horton, which was the housing developer of our subdivision and asked the ever helpful Shawn for help.  He asked him if he can do us a favor of picking up the machine and keep it in their office for a few days until we get home.  Since then, I didn't get the chance to thank him myself because I was so sicked the last couple days.  Anyways, tomorrow, we're heading out and I intend to drop this simple sweet treat as a token of thank you from me.

The bottle I used was from some rootbear brand that we got from CVS.  I think it was perfect for giveaway treats.  Like the fact that I did some "green" deeds today.  I used Hawaiian Punch jellybeans by Brachs for candies.  

PAPER: DCWV, GP and leftover cardstocks
STAMPS: Peachy Keen Stamps
INKPAD: Stampin Up! Chocolate Chip, TH Distressed Inkpads (Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge)
