Carrie Underwood Concert

In July my husband an daughter bought us tickets to last night;s Carrie Underwood concert. it was kind of an early Christmas present. We had a lovely dinner before and then joined the sold out crowd at the Arena. She has a wonderful voice although at times we thought the band drowned her out. Hunter Hayes was the opening act. He is going to be a star soon!

Playing with Paint

This month especially it is time to give thanks for all that we have. Today I  used paint

I art journal in an old book of poetry that I got at the library sale. This poem is titled Picture Window. 
It made me think of looking out and seeing the fall colors. The curtains are pattern paper and the leaves are painted using the expensive and technical baby wipe technique:) I tried to add trees and branches but my marker was darker than I would have liked. Oh well. All in all a comfy scene.
