Happy Fall

Good morning fellow bloggers!  Hopoe everyone had a great weekend, either crafting or family outings, or just being lazy.  For me I was able oget some crafting in and also to be able to finish my one project that I had been working on for a week.  I had planned on enteringing this in one of the challenges from last week but didn't finish until last nite. But alas I can enter it in the FCCB http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.comlenge that starts today.  Now how lucky is that or maybe karma.
The challenge on the blog this week "SIGNS OF FALL".    I have also entered this into the Craftin Desert Diva's       challenge "ANYTHING GOES" linky party.

Here is what I made. Thanks for looking

This is what I used.  For the base I used  a chipboard mini album that I had gotten from M's $bin. I covered the front with a DCWV paper stack called the "FOUR SEASONS".  This paper stack I had gotten at Joann's. This stack is so pretty with glittered paper and 2 of each season. I cut the paper at 5 1/4x 7 1/4. I useda solid card stock to cover the back of the chip board.
The pumpkins are cut from the new CTMH Artbooking cart. I've had this cart about a month now so I haven't relly had a chance to play with it yet. I saw where Jaren had made a LO  using this pumpkin. If you haven't ever seen her blog hop on over there and see what amazing projects she has made.  I thought it was perfect for what I wanted to do. (or thought, I changed this a few times)  LOL.  I used my markers to outline the pumpkins to give it more dept and colored the leaves after using the "FABRIC SWATCHES SET" cuttlebug cricut embossing folder . The pumpkins were cut @ 4".
The font that I used for the "FALL" was the Alphabet cart that is preloaded on my Cricut Expression2
I cut this out @ 2 1/2" and also the shadow. This was cut with some Recollections paper from  M's.
The bow at the top is from some ribbon that I had gotten at M's.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
Here are some closeups of the others.


Have a great day everyone
