Autumn...a Little Yellow Bicycle Sketch Challenge

Phew! I think that was a record for me. Tonight I happened to be blog surfing and came across a sketch challenge on Little Yellow Bicycle's blog. Approximately 4 hours (one argument, dinner, and a broken vacuum cleaner) later, here is the layout:

I'm in love with these photos I took of Mimi at our local "Big Dan's" pumpkin patch. The light was amazing! You'll be seeing a lot of layouts featuring my sweet girl and those gorgeous green eyes.

Here is the sketch by Liz Qualman:

I didn't stray from the sketch much and the only product not from Little Yellow Bicycle is the cardstock. Cut the leaves with the "Graphically Speaking" Cricut cartridge. Instead of adhering the layers, I left them open on one end for dimension. Big scallop punch is Martha Stewart and the little scallop is EK Success.

Good thing you can't see me right now...all raggedy looking with chapped lips and a stuffy nose that makes me sound like Elmer Fudd with a cold. I haven't dressed, done my hair or put on makeup in 5 days. Have to go back to work tomorrow, they should feel special...they get to see the dolled up version!
