frame it up Autumn layout

Happy Monday!  It's been a busy weekend of fall festivals!  Son#2 (who is the brass captain in the marching band) played the Homecoming show at the high school football game Friday night and marched in the fall festival parade in our KC suburb Saturday morning.  Son#1 and Son#3 (who both play violin in a bluegrass band) performed in another local fall festival on Saturday and Sunday.  I am full of funnel cakes, apple cider, and home made root beer and seriously need a nap.  All this festivaling (is that a word?) is hard work, LOL!  But today is all about more college visits for Son#1-no rest for the weary parent...

Moving on to more crafty matters, the BBTB2 challenge this week is to use a cricut frame cut on a project.  As I took approximately 200 pictures this weekend, give or take a few, I chose to do a layout using a fall themed frame with a leaf (love it!) from the Artbooking cartridge.  I used a sketch from a layout design by Michelle Snyder for the basic design and added my fall elements.  Most of the cuts are from Artbooking, although I did cut the scallop circle from Art Philosophy.  Go and see some possibilities over at BBTB2 and link up a project!

  1. Such warm and sweet colors, like a spicy latte. Great for the Autumn layout.

  2. Wow, your boys are so talented. It must be so much fun to see them perform. You made such a fabulous the leaf frame. Such pretty colors and papers!
