Happy Fall...

Well, today really feels like a fall day.  Very pleasant!

I have a project to show you that was a lot of fun! 
This is for my September guest designer spot at Creative Cuts and More.

(For the winner of my blog candy, scroll down to the last post!)


 
I chose to use the Oval Window Box with the Acetate Rectangle, and the Small Oak Leaf.  Oh my goodness - what an easy box to put together!  I simply scored, assembled the box using CCM's Killer White Tacky Tape, and decorated.  A fall mat stack from last year's DCWV collection was used for the DP, and I tied a knot around the leaf stem with a ribbon scrap.  I used my Creole Spice Kaleidacolor pad for distressing the leaf.  Nuggets were wrapped with DP, placed in the box, and Voila!



Hope you enjoy it! CCM has oodles of die cuts, and if you don't see what you need, make contact with them, as they probably do have it!

Have a wonderful evening!
Thanks for stopping by...

Let me tell IRL - it is too fun - love these diecuts you are showcasing and I am sure the owner is more than pleased with what you have done with her diecuts. PS you didn't notice the missing piece of chocolate did you??? Just kidding.

FAbulous project!!! I think CCM should consider keeping you own in a more permanent position! The leaf with that dp is wonderful. And I love how you chalked the leaf.

Ahhhhh. I wish it were a little more fall like. It's 97 here right now. But the good part of that is that I got to lay out in the sun this weekend while other people are shopping for winter coats, ha! We did have a cooler night friday night and it was so wonderful to get up and open up the windows for a few hours. I could really here my birds chirping and enjoyed sitting there drinking my coffee and watching them at the bird feeder. I have a blue bird in the back yard, I wish he would make his way around front to the feeders. big hugs! Melisa
