Fall Blog Hop!




Welcome to the Ch{all}enge Masters F{all} into a Ch{all}enge Blog Hop! The challenge Divas have gotten together to create some fantastic Fall themed projects for you to be inspired and enjoy!

You should have arrrived here from //http://lovinglife-liz.blogspot.com/

Liz's blog.

If not, then you need to start back at Tammy's Blog (Stash & Tag Diva) (http://tampatha.wordpress.com/).

We all have a secret word that you need to collect to spell an autumn phrase and to be entered to win one of the grand prizes. All the details are on her blog and you don't want to miss out on any great prizes along the way as we all have something special that you can win!

I hope you are enjoying all the eye candy you have seen so far. My project looks so much better in real life (I swear ;0) Unfortunately, it is storming as I am trying to take photos,and you know how that goes, so I hope you like it!

It is actually really dimensional which is not showing up so well in these photos. I plan on putting it on the mantel as soon as October starts. I used Making Memories cream polka dot pp from a few years ago and JillyBean Orange polka dot pp. The haunted house photo is from Jenni Bowlin's Halloween kit (which is to die for!)



I love hunting through my stash for just the right touch of something and for this project I came up with an old Jolee's (don't judge me) witch hat with spell book, wand and broom. I busted out an old black bottlecap from Lil Davis(remember them?) and topped it with a new sticker from Studio G. A few other Making Memories halloween embellishments from their collection from a couple of years ago add to the fun along with a Pink Paislee rub on and a Jenni Bowlin sticker. Alphabet letters are Basic Grey, American Craft Thickers,and a Heidi Swapp "H" covered with black glitter. All edges have been inked and distressed!




My absolute favorite part of this project is the teeny tiny JB Halloween Bingo cards. It really is part of the packaging that I cut apart. Totally not my own idea yet brilliant!



I was inspired by the Jenni Bowlin designers especially http://www.jbsmercantile.com/page.asp?Page=141 Ranjini Malhatra and http://www.jbsmercantile.com/page.asp?Page=298 Kerry Lynn Yeary.



There a few ways to win during this blog hop:

  11. That is one awesome layout! I just love it!
    My favorite thing about fall is the changing of the leaves. I feel so blessed to have been able to move to a beautiful part of the country. These mountains are just beautiful in the fall. Another thing is to sit out in the yard and watch the leaves fall to the ground. Most most of the time, a wind current will pick them up, sling them high in the air, and then they parachute down. I can watch that for hours! And to see the yards decorated with cornstalks and haybales. Janelle

  13. Marianne, great job on the project. Can I order one for my mantle too? LOL!! My favorite thing about autumn is that the long hot summer is finally over and the cooler weather is on its way. and after this really hot summer we have had this year, I can't wait! I also like to go apple picking in the fall with my family. so the "appley" food really gets me in the mood too.
