Papertrey Ink Blog Hop August 2012

This month's challenge was Autumn textiles, which I loved! Using different patterns and textures with an Autumn flair. This is what I came up with using a lot of my new goodies:



Here are the inspiration photos:



So I went after the colors with the grey, orange, and blue. Then for my texture, I used a SU Sizzix impression plate on kraft at the bottom, houndstooth from a My Mind's Eye paper pack, and PTI felt for the sentiment and the flower.


That beautiful rolled flower? Made for me by my good friend Gerry who made me a bunch of them in PTI felt and packaged them up all cute for part of my birthday gift :)


The Polaroid frame die is from PTI. I didn't order it last month and boy did I regret it! So I'm really glad it was available this month when I ordered :)


I like how this turned out, bold, and definitely with a fall feel. Make sure to head on over to Nichole's blog to see what everyone created with this challenge! I hope you're all having a fun weekend. We are camping in Salisbury Beach, MA. It is different this time because we had to bring our cat with us too! He had surgery this week, and he requires a lot of medication, so we had to bring him along. We woke up in the middle of the night and the inside of our camper smelled like a sewer because of his litter, and having a nocturnal cat in a small camper with two humans and two dogs...let me just say it has been a unique experience!
