It looks like it's that time!!.. and a RAK

It looks like it's that time - and finally feels like it, too. Fall has officially graced the Bayou state. Most of you reading this are scratching your heads - but you have to realize - in Louisiana - you usually run your A/C 9-10 months out of the year and wear sweaters maybe 3 weeks out of the entire year (if you own a sweater). Fall foilage? We're lucky to have leaves turning RIGHT NOW! My friends from Michigan were here in mid November a few years ago and was amazed that everything was still green. Snow? My dd is 4 and has never seen snow in person. Maybe this year! We opened the door today to take the below photos and bbbbbrrrrrrrr - it was almost freezing! Just two nights ago we went to the Fall Festival in short sleeves, and she had on a flimsy princess dress - and we were outside - no coats.

Okay - okay - so let's get to something FUN! My two friends, Maraya and Emery have developed a unique line of scrapbook tee-shirts! They debuted the first 2 designs at a local convention this summer and they were a hit. The Scrapboutique was recently at Scrapbook Expo in Austin, Texas with three new designs and I have the honor of RAKing on of the shirts right here on my blog! Check out the photos of my daughter holding up the Croppin' Cowgirl shirt (in the almost freezing weather!). This is the shirt we are RAKing (in your choice of size). (What is a RAK? RAK = random act of kindness). It's pre-shrunk, and the fabric is distressed, vintage and very soft. I have the Croppin' Cowgirl and the Madame LaRue's (besides one of each of the first debut - view them here ) and love them!!! If you saw them in Austin, you know how classy they are. Jennifer Stewart has pics of these shirts on her blog taken in Austin!





All you need to do to be entered in the drawing for this t-shirt is visit the
Scrapboutique website and look at the 5 different t-shirt designs and tell me which one your favorite is. I'll draw names Sunday night and post the winner Monday on my blog!

I am in love with vintage signage so I choose the Miss Betty design for sure. I just love the retro feel of it. All of them are great designs.

From just moving from Louisiana this March. I know exactly how the weather is especially saying I am originally from near Lake O'The Pines Texas. But for me my favorite is the Madame Rue T-Shirt. Reminds me of New Orleans and all of the Cajun sites in South Louisiana that I miss so much. Thanks for the give-a-way. You are really sweet
