Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Fall Blog Hop!!

For the Trendy Twine Birthday Celebration Blog Hop - Click HERE!! 

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Fall Blog Hop!! If you came from Melisa's blog then you are in the right spot! If you happened to come across this hop on my blog, make sure you head back to Lisa's blog to start at the beginning! 
We are all making projects using Lisa's Fall/Thanksgiving projects! I cannot wait to hop and see the rest of the projects, this is one super talented DT! :)
 (Click on pictures to see them larger)

In my layout I also used some leaves from the Falling Leaves Cutting Files set...

...which I inked using fluid chalk ink and placed along the edge of some of my pics. 

I also cut a fence from the Silhouette store (added some white pen stitching) and my title using fonts in my Silhouette software. You can't really tell from the pic, but the brown scalloped square is very pretty, shimmery DCWV paper. I didn't want to use ALL of the two sheets I had of this paper, so this is what I did...

I sized the scalloped square to how big I wanted it, then added another square along the inside. I made sure I would still have room on my border to adhere the cream layer over top. Now I still have a fairly large square of my glimmery brown paper and it's not wasted underneath the cream square! :) 

I used my 3 Girl Jam bow maker and some Baby Boy crinkle ribbon to add some little bows to a couple of pictures. 

I used the Fall Fun Cutting Files to make my adorable little girl, playing in the leaves... 

Isn't she cute?? I used a Peachy Keen face, a couple embossing folders, fluid chalk ink, white pen, foam stickers and adhesive pearls to add a lot of detail to my little girl in the leaves. 

Of course Lisa has some goodies up for grabs...
