 Hi there! Do you have any fun weekend plans? Early tomorrow morning around 6:00 am, Angie and I are headed to the one day event called Junk in the Trunk! It's a HUGE indoors flea market style event. We are hoping to find a few treasures and trinkets :)Tonight I have a layout to share featuring a photo of Angie:
I surrounded her with die cut fall foliage and roses:
 I just love this photo of Angie that was taken by a friend:
 To create the background, I added lots of texture using a Tim Holtz stencil along with texture paste, various distress stains and Tim Holtz stamps. The layer immediately behind the photo, was cut using a Sizzix Tim Holtz die and grungeboard then coated with Distress Paint and Distress embossing powder:
 I embellished with die cut grungepaper fall foliage and die cut roses that were made using Sizzix Tim Holtz dies:
and colored using various Distress Stains and added a layer of crackle Paint to the leaves:
The title is from a Tim Holtz stamp set:
For theme / color inspiration, I joined along with the current A Vintage Journey which is: The Colours of Autumn and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Sketchabilities sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend! 
Be Sweet ;)

How did you do that? How did you capture Autumn and put it on paper? I am sighing with delight! The colors, the misty background, the leaves...they all put me in mind of the little Vermont town where I grew up...those misty Autumn mornings where the leaves set the world on fire. Wow...this is just spectacular! Have fun at the flea market!
