Good morning every one.  Like the camel says its "HUMP DAY". The weather has turned cool here and the leaves are continueing to fall off the trees. They aren't really changing colors at all  here in Western Ky.

Bitten By the Bug2 challenge for this week is "FALL LEAVES ARE FALLING"  You are suppose to use the leave cut on the Art Philosphy CTMH cart or if you don't have this cart you can use any leaf cut from other cuts. 
I don't have this cart so I decided to use the cut from CAC@ cart. I sized it in the CCR so I'm not sure what size it is. I scored the trunk and the leaves of my tree and inked to give it some dept.  I popped dotted it to make it stand off the page and stuck my 4x4 photomats behind the tree.
The pumpkins are cut from the new CTMH Artbooking cart also sized in the CCR. I'm still tryng to learn how to actually cut on my E2 with this cart.  Been watching alot of videos on using real dial size.  I also cut the Autumn from this cart.  The leaf paper that I used is from DCWV the Autumn Melody paper stack thatI had gotten from Joann's last year.
Then fence is from the MINI MONSTERS cart cut @3.5"  I used my swiss dots cuddle bug folder to emboss my pumpkin and inked it.
Thanks for looking and have a great HumpDay everyone.

  9. I love your layout Vickie! I love the change of color in the leaves too. We don't rake here, we just let the winds blow the leaves into the fields. lol I went to rake up our leaves right after Dwayne and I were married and he yelled at me and said he doesn't rake leaves. lol So I don't either! Hugs my friend!
