First day of school fall 2012

Today is the first day of school in Sevier County.  It was approximately 63 degrees this morning and is supposed to be around 89 by 6 this afternoon.  When I got up at 5:30 this morning to make sure Angel was getting up for school and put the dogs out there was Orion in front of me (the fall sky is here) when I stepped out onto the front porch and to the left of it, to the east, there was a very bright planet.  I'm not sure which planet it was but it was extremely bright and a nice surprise to see in the eastern sky at that time of morning.

Creations by AR First Customer Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Creations by AR (Adela Rossol) Customer Blog Hop.  I am stop #3 and there is a total of 9 stops (see below for complete list). If you got here from Mary’s blog;, you are in the right spot.  If not, please go back and check out her creation and maybe to the very start and visit with Lisa at  I used the Tea Cottage template and a combination of Coredinations solid paper for the blue and yellow, and a paper I have had forever in my stash with no name on it, for the flower house to create a couple of gifts.   

Unlike Lisa I did not make different pictures for different views of the house.  I did not add the picket fence on it.

I just love this Tea Cottage template (the direct link to this template is because it is easy to assemble and has so many creative possibilities (think different holidays).  You could put a battery operated tea light in it or just use your imagination for all kinds of uses.  Adela’s templates come in PDF for those who hand-cut their templates and cut file for use with a cutting machine.  There are freebies offered on the site, plus some templates are currently on sale.  Two new templates were released last week.
Now, what would a Blog Hop be without prizes?  One random commenter from each blog will win a template of their choice from Creations by AR.  Comments will close at midnight (Eastern Time) on Monday, August 6 and the winners will be posted in the afternoon on Tuesday, August 7.
I hope you enjoyed my Tea Cottage. Please hop along and visit Diana at http://kreativfenster.blogspot.denext. Don’t forget to leave some love along the way. We enjoy your comments and you may just win a template!
