CTD259 - Grateful For You

I am excited to be hosting my first challenge over on the Color Throwdown Blog! With all the kids heading back to school and the official first day of fall around the corner I chose some pretty, fall colors for us to work with this week.

I created a 12 x 12 scrapbook based on  the Color Challenge.

Up in the corner I added a tag, cut with the Traditional Tags STAX Die-namics, and stamped a sentiment for the Fall Foliage Stamp Set.

Any patterned paper I used is from Echo Park Count Your Blessings.

To create the border of fall leaves I use the Fall Foliage Stamp Set and the coordinating Fall Foliage Die-namics. I stamped a variety of leaves that are in the stamp set and cut them out. I also cut leaves from cardstock, corrugated paper and burlap to added more texture. Then I wrapped Hemp Cord around the page and added a MFT button in Fuse Green.

I hope you get a chance to play along!
