Introducing Elisabeth Bells Newest Digi...."Fall Errands"


My oh my, It's that time again.....
Blog Hop Days just make me smile.
I don't know, but I look forward to them each month. =)

For this months Digi Bell's Blog Hop, I kept things a little more simple than I did last month...but anyway... on with the hop...shall we? 

Hopefully, you are joining the Digi Bells for this months Blog Hop, and should have arrived here from Jennifer's Blog.  If not, please go back to the Digi Bell's Blog, and hop along with us.

I am sure you have enjoyed the hop so far, and this is the last stop.
This months newest Digi, "Fall Errands", was SUCH FUN to color.

I will not even begin to tell you my struggle.  For the life of me, I could not get my mind around a layout. After I decided I wanted a smaller rectangular card.
This goes to show that I tend to be a creature of habit, change something up just a tiny bit and suddenly I have brain block...

Suddenly the idea came to me, I had just finished making the most adorable set of Christmas cards, using this cut file as a background.  Why not use it for this one...
So the very eloquent yet simple design was born.  BUT... Not without some major oopsies along the way.
That red stickles in the top corner... NOOOOO.... that wasn't supposed to be there, but I accidently had it on my hand and touched there. What was I going to do now?  Well... I fixed it the best way I could...
There was no way to get it off, I ended up filling in a couple more areas so it at least looked even.  
Not happy about it all, (actually I'm quite irritated with myself)
but... Time was running out.

I'm just going to try not to stress about it.  But the next big boo boo comes when I go to photograph the card.  I can't not even begin to tell you how many pictures I took.  If there was a fly on the wall, he would surly think I was crazy.
A photo shoot for just one card. lol
I don't know why, but I could not get proper lighting to save my life. Not to mention any Adobe Photoshop fixes that I could think of were NOT helping.
I finally said... It is what it is...
Obviously I need to relax a little, and accept that sometimes, things are what they are. (but I hate that)

Now it's time to head back to the Digi Bells Blog, make sure to leave a comment there as well, and let us know what you love about the fabulous "Fall Errands".

Thanks so much for joining us!
