My Facelift continued!

Hi Girls! Thanks for the sweet words about BOTH my DH's handiwork & my creations! :) I share all of your comments with my honey. I was more than ready for a new look, so my DH & I combined our skills & here is our final creation! Not too long ago, my friend Julie @ Julie's Open Window wrote a post referring to change & asking who was open to it. Well I am! Here in Phoenix, kids have already returned to school & our temps are even coming down below 100! Fall IS around the corner! This is my 1st time combining 3 challenges! I thought Le Anne's color combo this week @ Color Throwdown worked great for "Fall" color inspiration along with the sketch layout from CPS. My friend Eve @ Creative Card Art Designs inspired me to use a lil' distressin' technique. The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #42, challenged the papercrafter to use an embossing folder of their choice. :) If you visit any of these sites, you are SURE to be motivated by soooo many beautiful samples! Thanks for clicking on my blog :) Be Sweet!

Ingredients Used:

Paper: SU Really Rust, Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey, Whisper White

Ink: SU Really Rust, Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey, VersaMark

Stamps: SU A Little Bit of Happiness, PTI Damask Designs

Sprinkles: Cuttlebug Textile & Tiny Mosaic EFs, generic clear & copper EP, Making Memories hardware, Offray ribbon
