PTI Blog Hop is TONIGHT!!

Yeah! Is everybody ready?????



This month I was inspired by the colors of fall, mostly Halloweenish colors! Black and yellow and orange, love them all together! I was also inspired by Lauren and her endless creativity and templates. I made the Tucked Away template this month, soooo cute!!



This one is so easy to put together, took me almost no time at all. What took me a long time was finding orange cardstock, I haven't used fall colors in a while!! I cut the flower on my cricut in different sizes and then layered it.



And since I don't have the Halloween tag set, I used my Spring Tag set with fall colors. Worked perfectly!! Thanks for stopping by and have FUN hopping tonight!!

This blog hopping can get expensive -- now I need to order the Tucked Away template. (At least it's only $5!) Great idea to use the spring tags with fall colors. I use some of the 2008 holiday tags year round as many of the images are so versatile! (And, oh, yeah. I have the autumn and the holiday tags. Better add the Spring ones to my next order...)

Very nice! I love your idea to use the spring tags, one of my most underused sets.

Dana said...

Mara, how clever of you to use Spring tags for this challenge! Little details like your giant orange layered flower matching the small fower on the stamp make me so happy. The black thread through the orange button really is a nice touch...
