First Day Of Autumn Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and the First Day Of Autumn Blog Hop.  I'm so glad you could join us.

If you are hopping from Lisa at HoneyBearz Designs, you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Lisa who is our fabulous hostess.

This hop is to welcome the first day of fall.  Please make sure you hop to all the stops as you won't want to miss a thing.

Here is the lineup in case you get lost....

For my project I, decided to do a banner for my craft room.  I kept it very very simple as I loved the pattern paper.  I will be making one for every season.  Enjoy!

Paper is DCWV Amber Autumn and Stampin Up Tangerine Tango
Cricut cartridges-Birthday Bash and Storybook
Lindy Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mist in Crow's Nest Copper
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap
Stampin Up Stampin Write Marker in Early Espresso
Ribbon is from my stash

I took another picture with the flash on so you can see the shimmer....

My blog candy....because I'm in 2 hops (this one and the one starting tomorrow), I will put all comments together and draw one winner to receive a $20 gift card to their choice of Michaels, Joanns or Hobby Lobby.  To win, simply leave a comment and a way for me to reach you.  Extra entries for becoming a friend of my blog and Facebook as well as commenting on both hops.  I will use and announce the winner on Tuesday, September 27th.

Thank you so much for hopping by and a big thank you to Lisa at HoneyBearz Designs for allowing me to participate. 

Please stop back tomorrow as I'm in another hop :).  School Blog Hop starts over with Jamie at My Amusing Life.

Your next stop is Mindy at Creative Valley Creations.
