Fall Is In The Air

Are you ready for another Challenge today from A Crafty Little Place?  Today's challenge is perfect for the weather here.  It's an Autumn themed challenge.  It's been a bit nippy here.  I love, love, love fall, but I like to EASE into it.  We went from 90 degrees to the 50's in a matter of days.  It been dreary and rainy.  PERFECT for staying in my basement crafting.

Here's my Autumn themed creation using paper by Basic Grey's Indian Summer:

Supplies Used:  Stamps: American Crafts Blue Skies
Ink: Choc Chip Craft, TH Vintage Photo Distress, Colorbox Dark Peony
Paper: Indian Summer by Basic Grey, Choc. Chip, Ivory, Kraft
Other: Manila Tag, Glimmer Mist, brown grosgrain, brown twine, Wanted Button, oval and scalloped oval punch, EK Success border punch, Zing brown embossing powder

I used some glimmer mist and spritzed my tag.  I then embossed the tree from THIS set using Choc Chip Craft ink and some Zing embossing powder.  My scalloped oval was cut out of Kraft cardstock and then I colored it using some Molasses Smooch.  Now doesn't that just sound "fall-ish?"  Oh my Grandma used to make the best Molasses cookies ever!  Speaking of cookies, I'm off to make a big batch of Chocolate Chip for my son's class tomorrow.  We are surprising his teacher.  It's her birthday.  

I hope you have time to join in our challenge this week.

I should be back tomorrow with a few creations for you. 
See you then!
