I love autumn. I love the beautiful leaves as they change colors. I love the fact that the weather is beautiful. About the only thing I don't like is the ragweed...but that is another story...I am trying to stay positive here! Every year I decorate the china hutch in my kitchen. This year I decided to make a fun little plaque to hang in the center. I don't know about where you live, but here in the south this saying is appropriate. It's no secret that I have a little bit of a southern accent...I can see my friends from Idaho, Arizona, Utah, and even Canada grinning right now...but honestly, I don't really say "y'all" much...I just thought it would be a fun expression.
It all started with a cute little wooden crow that I found at the craft store. I disassembled it and traced it for a pattern. Basically, just about everything on this project is either current or retired Stampin' Up! product with exception of the wood plaque and the gingham fabric along the bottom. I used the Big Shot to complete most of the elements on this page...the lettering, flowers, and pumpkin were all done with dies. The background is from the Time Worn DSP collection as well as the woodgrain paper on the word "FALL". I am not going to go into great detail on this one, but if you have a specific question, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer.
My friend, Lorri Heiling, inspired me to organize my home, so that's exactly what I have been doing. I have also been crafting some, but I just don't have anything else finished to the point that I can share. But be patient! Good things come to those who wait!
