Fall is Here

O my goodness its Friday already! Its been a slow week for crafting for me. My Lil monster has been sick so that makes for a tired and unproductive mommy. I did manage to get a festive fall layout done yesterday though. I took these pictures last month when the leaves were just starting to change and we still had warm weather. Lil monster loves to play outside and enjoyed collecting sticks in the yard.

The sketch I used is #77 from Sketchabilities. I really liked the grid like background and how the pictures were layered.

I had to get creative with the background. To make the grid design I cut a plastic mesh bag that oranges came in in half. Next I used glue dots to hold the bag in place on my paper then used brown ink pad from Studio G to create the pattern.

All of the colored papers are scraps from my stash. Great fall colors! The leaf embellies are left overs from a project last year. And the Gems are from The Paper Studio.

Close up view of the top right corner.

The jewel tones of the gems look great next to the glittery leaves

I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the doily look around the squares.
The journal tag I cut out using The Classic Font cartridge from Cricut.

Thanks for stopping by have a wonderful weekend!
