Autumn LO

Hi my crafty friends!  We have seen a little sunshine this morning!!  Looks like after tomorrow the rain should be out of here and sunshine will be our friend again with some more seasonal, warmer temps!  So looking forward to some days without rain!!  Ok on to my lo.  I made a fall lo that I am entering into BBB2 challenge.  The challenge was to use the wheelbarrel off of Walk In My Garden cricut cart. I cut my leaves on white cardstock then inked them with distress inks to give me my fall colored leaves. They look so good in person, not as well in the photo.  I do wish I had used a different color background, but it still looks better in person than in the photo.  I took the pics at night, so there is no natural light to show the colors better. My pumpkin was made by punch three ovals, the stem and curly cues are made with white memory thread that I colored with Bic markers.  Carts used in this lo was Stretch Your Imagination, Jubilee, Walk In My Garden, and Straight from the Nest.

Hey there Girlfriend! Love your layout Brenda, Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, it's a toss up between Spring and Fall but after the summer we all had I'm liking the cooler temps, lol! Love all the colors of Fall and great colors on your layout, I've never tried alcohol inks yet but there are so many possibilities I may need to get me some! Love all the colors of the changing leaves but don't love raking them, lol! So glad you joined in the challenge over at BBTB2, hope to see you again!

Brenda this is beautiful. Love the leaves with the distressed ink and love the way they are overflowing out of the wheelbarrow. Cute little pumpkin. Good luck on the challenge. I think your layout is awesome.
