Frosted Designs Fall Blog Hop LAYOUT

OMG..I had a blast doing this layout tonight after I read each of the Designers blogs at  Frosted Design Fall Blog Hop to get all the ingredients to participate in the challenge. There are 12 ingredients to choose 6 from to do a project and I choose to do a layout and I used all 12 ingredients in my layout-- WOW.
My project also has the Fall taken a few weeks ago of my fall decorated front yard, which I had fun painting on all the pumpkins, too!
 A list of the 12  ingredients and how I incorporated them into my layout:
1. Embossing: dry embossed the mats and the leaves with my Cuttlebug/folders
2. Buttons: 5 orange buttons with floss tied on and painted dots in black & white
3. Die-cuts: Used Straight from the Nest cartridge to cut out many fall leaves and embossed and inked
4. Stickles/ Glitter: I used both glitter paper / Stickles in orange on the pumpkins and leaves in bronze
5. Spray Mists: I used Tiger Lily and Oriental Poppy Tattered Angel Mists on the pumpkins with yellow cardstock
6. Alphabet Stickers: The title "My Fall Yard- Autumn Greetings &  There is a Chill in the Air"
7. Fall Leaves:  Die cut leaves that are embossed and inked in gold and bronze glitter-scattered on page
8. Stamping: I stamped the pumpkins with a rubber stamp in black ink and then cut out and pop dotted for a 3-D effect
9. Rhinestones/gems:  I used purple rhinestones for the center of my flowers
10. Flowers: I hand crocheted  six of the maroon flowers
11. Lace: I also hand crocheted the maroon lace on top half of page
12. Pumpkins: I stamped 3 pumpkins and cut out

Here are a few close-ups of the layout: I used all papers by DCWV-The Natural Stack- great for fall projects. I also inked the edges of all the papers in black or dark brown, scrapper's floss was tied on the buttons and the H O M E  letters on side of page and curled, I also painted a faux stitched border all around the 12 x 12 paper and then painted a thin white mat look on the pictures to make them pop a bit more. The little house and tree was from my stash of embellies that I never throw away anything you never know when you can use something. I completed this project tonight in under 3 hours- after I did the blog hop and got lots of inspiration from designers- it made my Friday night!
