I want to tell you a little bit about my projects this month. My daughter just graduated from college and is blessed to have a job teaching and running a high school library. As a way to encourage her students I am making her bookmarks that she can use as "raffle" prizes. So all my projects this month are bookmarks. I also made them all from paint chip samples that had been in my stash of paper for several years. To me art has a personal connection. These bookmarks share a little bit about who I am.

For my bookmark today I used MFP set called
 Unlike the past two days were my bookmarks needed extra explaining, I am sure that we can all relate to picking apples in the fall. APPLEBERRY Orchard is the one that my kids and I love going to. We love the taste of a warm apple doughnut on a cool morning.

Here is an apple my son picked the other day.

Fried apples and waffles... yummy...


  1. Fall and all things "apples" give such a warm fuzzy feeling!

  2. Your card is so pretty and colorful. Your waffles look yummy.

  3. Beautiful work! Your daughter is going to be thrilled with the bookmarks when she gets them. Fried apples and waffles? I've never heard of such an animal, but it looks delicious!

  4. It's almost apple time and I can't wait. TFS!

  5. Fabulous bookmark and I will take the fried apples and waffle please - LOL TFS

  6. What a wonderful bookmark MariLynn - I am sure those glossy apples will be appreciated. Love the red against the green.
