Now time to share my project! 

"Beauti-Fall" - 12 x 12 inch scrapbook layout

With the change in seasons, I thought it might be time to create some Fall themed projects! 
And the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful was perfect for this! 

Such a beautiful page! Let's take a closer look...

Wow! This is really stunning! 
You'll spy that I used my blending ink tool with the coloring stencil and Caramel Toffee Pigment Ink to create a base of falling Autumn leaves. So awesome!

I inked the gorgeous florals in Sapphire Pigment Ink, and proceeded to layer them over my falling leaves, and my sweet boy's photograph!

As always, the sentiments included in this project kit were really lovely! For a crisp and clear result, I stamped mine in permanent black crisp dye ink 

A sprinkle of enamel dots completed my page. Gorgeous!

I really hope my project has inspired you to get creating! 

Please remember to leave a comment on this post to be entered into the giveaways

& Good Luck! 

Time to send you hopping over to the incredibly talented, Nathalie DeSousa's blog. She is sure to amaze! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, 

til next time, 

Happy Arty Days,
