Fall ABC Challenge Blog Hop

It's time for another Challenge at Creative Accents and we're kicking it off with a BLOG HOP! Yay!! Im so happy to have you here today. If you've just happened along my blog hop on back over to the beginning (Creative Accents)



The challenge is pretty simple! Create any paper based project and include:

A- Alphabet (letters or words in any form)

B- Bling (pearls or gems and other blingy things)

C- Chipboard (letters, shapes, or whatever you've got in your stash)

Your project can be any theme, but if you want 'extra credit' make it an Autumn or Halloween project :) hmmmmm.....wonder if I should try for the extra credit?!?! LOL Whadaya think??


Here's my ABC creation....


I LOVE the fall.... you may or may not have heard me say this before! LOL But every year I make my hubby take me for a drive so we can just admire the colours and this particular year I took quite alot of photos along the way as well. So when Tara gave us this challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do. A layout using these photos. Now I've used NO DP!!! Can you believe it!?!? LOL I've just used cardstock. I have this AWESOME Big border punch from EK Success that I made the 2 strips of leafs with and then used the leafs to add some extra below. Then I've used the current SOTM in the bottom left corner to make up a swirly fall leaves accent peice. I was really happy with how it all came out. here's a few close ups of it all.
You can see my A for Alpha's element here in my little Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type stickers for the quote and then for the B for Bling...it's hard to see but there's some little yellow gems in the centers' of those leafs.

And there's my C for Chipboard!
Allrighty then folks! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love. :o) Your next stop is my buddy
