Plant Some Ideas!

    Time for a new challenge at The Outlawz Paper à la Mode and the theme is 'Plant Some Ideas!'  Now you can take any inspiration from that...Plant, Ideas, etc.  The only requirement is...NO CARDS!!

I was inspired by the 'Idea' of 'plant'ing and reaping what we sow!

Wondering about my process?  Check out the video below to see how I designed and put this together!

Material List:

Conie Fong Sunflower Gnome
Conie Fong Pumpkin Bundle
Fall Keepsake Journal/Book HERE
Brown Satin Ribbon
Scrap of Blue Ribbon
Scrap of Embroidery Floss
Paper Clip
Blue Gems 
Black Vinyl for Letters
Adhesives: Fabri-Tac; Multi Media Glue Ranger
Cricut Design Space: Design; Print Then Cut
Cricut Font:  BFC Jolly Wonder
Cricut Standard Mat
Cricut Maker

My project is off to the following challenges:
We Love 2 Create:  AG Mixed Media
CD Sunday Plus:  AG using a CD, USB or digi
As You Like It:  People or Animals...Ooh, that's a tough one!  I have to say, this got me looking at my last month's creations to see what I tend to choose.  I have to say, I don't really have a preference!  I use everything:  ppl, objects, animals, flora, fauna, name it!
Make My Monday:  P is for...'plant', pumpkin, pot, paperclip, paper
FarmQuest General Store:  AG Farm/Country
