Thanksgiving Recipe!

The new theme for the Cut It Up challenge should get you in the Thanksgiving mood with a recipe!  Here it is:  Use fall colors, fibers/fabrics, and gems in your project! Don't forget your die cuts!!  

I haven't made a layout for a long time and decided this would be the perfect recipe for the photo of my little grand-girl playing in the leaves!  

The layout began with a 12 x 12 sheet of fall floral paper.  I thought the oranges, greens, and dark reds would be perfect for fall colors!  The next layer is dark red to match her sweatshirt.  The yellow/orange background was already textured/printed; however, I did do some stamping with a fall floral stamp.

The leaves were all cut from various shades of green, gold, and brown paper.  I chose to emboss some of the leaves to give them texture.  The fabric/fiber is strip of burlap and I also included a distressed ribbon along the left side of the photo.  

This layout was finished off with some gems, a journaling card, bow, a title, and date.

The embellishments include the following:  Bo Bunny Double Dot Gems, Retired CTMH brown gems, burlap ribbon, floral ribbon, Polkadoodles Sugarpops Journaling Card, numbers/letters from Polkadoodles Sticks and Bones.  

Papers include:  Polkadoodles Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles, Polkadoodles Sticks and Bones, Polkadoodles Trick or Treat, Retired CTMH, DCWV,  

Die Cut Foliage pieces are from the following:  Polkadoodles Sugarpops and Polkadoodles Work & Play 12. 

This challenge we are sponsored by Ink on 3.
