Gorgeous Leaves Are Falling....

 Hi everyone! As I talked about in my last post, I have been crafting up a storm using some new supplies I got recently.  The show stoppers for today are the 'Stitched Leaves' dies by Lawn Fawn. Oh why did I wait so long to buy leaf dies... these make my heart sing and they add the perfect touch of simple beauty to any project!

I was wasting time perusing Pinterest the other day and saw a leaf garland that a talented person had created using real leaves. Well of course I had to create my own using my favorite medium- paper! I just love to layer patterns and shapes and came up with this gorgeous Fall banner. Can't wait to show this baby off on Thanksgiving! I am also entering this into the Simon Monday Challenge: Patchwork!

I got to pull lots of older papers out of my 'stash' including some from Stampin Up! and The Paper Studio and also used brand new paper from Bo Bunny's 'Autumn Song'. 

I created interesting layers with doilies, tags and some rosettes.  There are a lot of different shapes and sizes of the leaf dies and hopefully I have represented them well!

This is a tag die and stamp from Papertrey Ink which conveys exactly how I feel about my family. One of my favorite quotes: 'A family is like fudge- mostly sweet with a few nuts' Ha ha, so true!

Love the mix of patterns here along with the brightly colored leaves.

A sweet little doily and tag adorn this banner.

Beautiful Fall colors and textures on this section. Love the tag peeking out...

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
