It's Still Fall

With all the beautiful Christmas and winter cards and layouts being posted lately I wanted to put some Fall out there.
Here's a layout that I did recently but I still haven't gotten the photo of my daughters printed yet (sorry) I really wanted to get this posted because it qualifies for so many challenges and I didn't want to miss any deadlines. I promise to post this again on my personal blog complete with photos of the girls ;)

For my background I used papers from the DCWV fall stack (2008). The cardstock for the title is Bazzill and I embossed the yellow with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. The title was cut on my Cricut using Design Studio to weld together the words (opposites attract cartridge) and the leaves (doodle charms and stretch your imagination cartridges) Then I covered the leaves in various colors of Stickles and Studio G glitter glue. The cute colored droplets are Robin's Nest Tear Drops (sea glass and sun kissed)
The blue background for my photo mat is a kinda shimmery mica paper that I got at HL (sorry I don't know the brand name) I cut it on my Cricut with SCAL you could also use DS or Gypsy and George by welding a bracket to the side of a square. The gorgeous flowers are Prima (assorted sets) and the centers of the flowers are Dew Drops (sunflowers and primary). The little leaves with the flowers are a Studio G fall stamp I made by stamping green onto orange cardstock and then cut out. The other flowers on the corners of the mat are Prima Fall Leaves.
Here's my first attempt at coloring with my new ShinHan Touch markers. They are comparable to Copics (so I've been told, I've never used Copics) but they are less expensive. I'm hoping Santa will bring me some more ;) The image is a Digi download I bought at Lily-Boo's and the "Bushels of Blessings" is a Studio G stamp I added because I tuned this into a pocket to hold some tags I cut on my Cricut with George and basic shapes cartridge at 2.25"
I stamped each one with Studio G month stamps and then wrote on the back of each the blessed events of that month (Ex. Both of my daughter's birthdays are in September) I dressed each tag up with a copper metallic eyelet.
Sorry this was such a loooong post but there were so many details to cover. Hope I didn't leave anything out.
