NOVEMBER MONTHLY CHALLENGE: Signs of Fall with Texture Challenge!

The Cricut circle monthly blog challenge was to make something "Fall" with a touch of texture. The rules were to create any type of project you would like (tag, altered project, mini album, etc.) but your project must be newly created for this challenge and include atleast 2 Cricut Image Cuts. I instantly thought about the photos that were taken last year of my daugther, Genevieve - she had just turned 2 and our regular photographer found this great little place with lots of pretty leaves, and great old buildings. My mom bought this dress and it was so cute so I just had to put it on her. I loved this dress and the photos turned out perfectly.

This challenge I used some Imaginisce paper -- too cute. (The little stripped back ground)

The red, orange, brown is all from Bazill - the kraft is from Joanns.

I cut out the shape from Art Philosophy initally I was going to use the stripe shapped back ground but then used the "negative" cut to create this which I love. This was designed on my gypsy and cut at approx 11.00.

The leaves were cut from different sizes from Autumn Celebrations so was the word Fall. I haven't used that cartridge much but I really like it. Very nice little fonts, easy to layer and just cute.

I added texture by embossing the acorn, the tree, and also "dry" embossing the stems on the leaves.

I really enjoyed making this layout and just love how it turned out.

Hope you enjoy -

Happy Scrappin'

What a GORGEOUS layout -- and a beautiful kiddo too! I love how the leaves mimick the colors in the photo.
