My son Colin in 2007

This is my first project using the gorgeous September Scraps of Elegance Kit, "Falling Leaves".

I used the Main Kit,  Coordinating Paper Add-on,  Chipboard Add-onFloral Add-on and the Elements Add-on.

Main Kit

Coordinating Paper Add-on

Chipboard Add-on

Floral Add-on

Elements Add-on

I started with the beautiful "Pumpkin Season" paper from Prima's Amber Moon collection, included in the Coordinating Paper Add-on as the background.

I cut a strip of paper from the "Into the Woods" paper (Main Kit) and punched the edges with a stitch pattern punch, layering this over a strip of black cardstock to make the pattern more noticeable. I then glued this onto the background and applied the orange polka dot washi tape from the Elements Add-on along the sides.  I added some more washi tape strips on the right side of the layout,

I also used a floral edge punch with the "Into the Woods" paper to make decorative strips for the left, upper and lower edges of the layout and for some die-cuts.  More die-cuts were made with the "Autumn Sunset" paper from the Main Kit.  I used some green paper from my stash for the leaves.

These are the dies and punches I used:

Postage Stamps
Astoria Decorative Elements
Cheery Lynn Designs
Flourish #13
EK Success
Pointed Flower
In Stitches

I painted the chipboard pumpkins and applied a brown wash overtop to grunge them up a bit and give them some dimension.  I also added a bit of orange embossing powder to the pumpkins.

The buttons and small orange roses were from my stash.  The rest of the flowers were from the Floral Add-on.

To finish, I added a couple of stickers from the Main Kit, a butterfly from the ephemera in the Elements Add-on and brushed a bit of white paint on the edges of a few of the flowers to add some more dimension.

Thank you so much for taking a look today!
