Fab n Funky Challenge #137 - Colours of Autumn

Good morning all,

WOW, Wednesday already....that's what happens when you have a long weekend!   I'm scheduling this post as I will be out for the day with my cousin.  We are taking a trip down memory lane you might cottage country to visit an area where we spent the summers as children.   It's sure to be a fun day .... I hope you get to do something special too!
...on to business... It's time for a new Challenge at Fab n Funky.  This week our lovely, talented hostess Pat has asked us to use the Colours of Autumn on our projects.   Our fabulous sponsor is  My Creative Classroom and they have a wonderful prize for our winner this week.
I couldn't resist colouring up a new digi from Mo Manning called Fall Fairy Jesen.  I did a little distressing on this one too.....not my usual, I know.  

Here is a view of the inside.    I like to print a digi on the inside.  I cannot take credit for the idea....I saw it done a few years ago and unfortunately do not know who originated it.  The little acorn is a stamp from an old SU set.

DP - Recollections "Autumn" 8x8 pad
Burlap:  7 Gypsies Trading Card taken apart and frayed
Rafia - scraps from a bouquet I received
Co-ordinations paper used on one layer, embossed and distressed
MFT - Flourish
Coloured with Copics
I will be entering the following challenges:
Dream Valley Challenge #40 - something old (acorn stamp), something new, (digi stamp)
Send a Smile 4 Kids - Fall or Halloween
Lexi's Creations #73  - Fall Colours
 Creative Craft Challenges - All About the Boys
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hugs, Pat K.
