Autumn

Good Monday morning everyone!!! So glad you decided to stop by and see me. I have the honor of being the hostess for this weeks challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Since the first day of Autumn is this coming Sunday, I have challenged my awesome DT Sister's to make a project with an Autumn theme using any Cricut cartridge. I decided to make a layout for this challenge. I know Hubby will be raking up some leaves before we know it and I intend to get some photos of our Bassett Hound-T Bone playing in said leaves. So I knew I would need a layout to put a photo one. I cut the big tree from the Create-a-Critter cartridge. It can be found on page 68 and I cut it out at 8.5 inches. I didn't cut all of the layers as I didn't want the face on the trunk. The Wheelbarrow is from the Pooh & Friends cartridge. It is on page 34 and I cut it at 2.5 inches. The leaves are from the tree. I used my Gypsy Girl and hid everything but the cutout of one of the leaves. I then just duplicated it and got a pile of leaves to match my tree. The clouds are from a punch. The sentiment in the corner is from the 'Fall Fun' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I plan on putting my picture on the open space and do my journaling on the tree trunk.
I sure hope you plan on joining us for our 'Autumn' challenge. Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!! And while you are there, check the side bar for the rules for our challenges. Then head to your crafty space and create a new project to link by Sunday, September 22nd. So looking forward to seeing what you make!
Hope ya'll like my layout!!!! :)

Great layout, and what a neat idea to put that photo on. I wish we had the big trees around here so we could see all the Fall colors.

Such a cute layout (I bet it will be even cuter when the pic of your dog is added)! That tree from CAC is one of my favorites! Somehow our leaves never end up in the wheelbarrow-the kids won't stop jumping in the pile. Bet your dog will do the same, lol! Great challenge idea and looks like it was a hit!
