Autumn Days layout (for BBTB2)

Our BBTB2 wonderful leader Susan has selected the maple leaf from Art Philosophy for our challenge this week, but since I don't have that cartridge, I went with a similar leaf on Artbooking.  The title font is also from Artbooking.  The scarecrow, basket of apples, and wheelbarrow are all from the CM Cheerful Seasons cartridge.  The pretty print papers are from the Doodlebug Happy Harvest collection, which if you a paper junkie like me, is really really cool!

Artbooking-title font, leaves
CM Cheerful Seasons-all other cuts
Paper-Doodlebug Happy Harvest collection prints, CTMH solids
brown chalk ink

Note:  Artbooking is proving to be a bit tricky for me, if I'm not cutting the projects exactly as shown, for the sizing.  I used the real dial size for my cuts from Artbooking, as I was using individual elements (the font and leaves).   Also, there is no shadow for the font, so I cut it twice and offset it to give a shadow effect.

We'd love to see you link up with us at BBTB2 with a leaf project-you can check out all the fabulous projects the DT has made for inspiration!
