Falling Leaves

Hi Friends,

Cordova has been a wonderful place to discover. I have been lucky to meet new friends, & enjoy a slower pace of life. It is a small town that holds about 2000 people but the population grows to 3000 during the summers for fishing & local canneries. When fall arrives the cannery workers & fisherman head back home. As for me, I am ready to cozy up with friends & creating new crafts & patterns for classes.
This collection of paper was given to me by The Net Loft. It is really a dreamy place to sit & craft. There is so much inspiration there. The people are warm and friendly, just the perfect place to knit or craft a while.

 I call this piece Falling Leaves.
I am unsure of who this paper collection is from, the flowers are from Prima, sentiments are from Teresa Collins, buttons are from Tim Holtz.

Each banner has a toasty spot for my fall memories. Which will be added once fall has come to an end. My favorite part of this project were the hand made flower. I have yet to get a Silhouette Cameo, so handmade flowers are a must!

The hardest thing for this project was getting interesting pictures. It was the hardest! I tried taking them at my house but the lighting is less than perfect...So I went to my husband's office to use his window. The image quality turned out very nice there.

Here are a couple of my favorite pages. It helps working with my favorite color time of the year...I love fall &  fall colors are my most beloved collection. I would love to live in a place where Autumn is 5 months out of the year.

This fall is going to be a very exciting on for me. I am ready to work with new material & let my imagination enjoy some free time.

 Let your happiness grow!
