I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty Gals Corner - Signs of Fall

Time for another great challenge at Craft Gals Corner.

The theme this month is Signs of Fall

Our fabulous sponsors are:

(in alphabetical order)

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images



Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate
Fred She Said Designs offers a wide variety of digital products with a floral flair and cute characters too - Digi's, Pre-colored images, Papers, Sets, Fred's Flower Kits, and even digital cutting files.  Have some fun with Fred!

I am using two digital images from Fred, She Said for my candy box.  I decided the Halloween theme for Signs of Fall because when I was in the store the other day (August 15th) there was already a display of Halloween costumes and candy. Why so early?  It is getting crazy out there. 

The images I used for the project are from Halloween Rosey and  Emma the Cat.

Dimensions of my project are:

6 by 4 1/2 in for the back of the stage
the background panel is 4 x 4 3/4
The candy box was a 5 1/4 by 4 1/2
(the end box is 4 1/2 long by 1 in sq. at the ends) 

Images coloured with Copics, pencil Crayon, Wink of Stella
To the background of the stage I added sentiment from Halloween paper, 
washi tape and black magic mesh.  I tied an orange ribbon around the box. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Hope you will join the challenge and show us what you think the signs of fall are. 

Remember to stop by our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design team.
