Happy Thursday my crafty friends. 

I love Fall! It is my favorite season. I love the crisp air, the beautiful colors and my warm sweaters and fuzzy socks! 

The October challenge over at the Creative Embellishments blog is to create a layout inspired by the below picture and the twist is to distress something on your project. Along with using one of their fabulous pieces. 

I love the colors of this photo the orange and brown with the hint of white. 

I picked a few papers from the BoBunny Madeleine Collection. This collection is stunning, so soft & delicate. 

This is a great picture of my sister and the kids taken by Barb Weir Photography

I distressed the edges of my paper with my Prima Distressing tool. I also distressed my papers with my Tim Holtz Inks. 

Dreamweaver embossing paste with some gesso to lighten. Color Bloom Spray to color things up.

Last but not least I used these lovely Creative Embellishment pieces. I used part of the Lucky in Love set and Mini Ornate Frames. I heat embossed them and then distressed them a little. 

Hope you have a fabulous day!
