I LOVE Fall.  When that cool breeze starts blowing I immediately start decorating.  I am fall obsessed from the apple picking, pumpkin picking, the smells (oh the smells) and baking!
For this challenge, I wanted to focus mostly on the leaves and the apples but adding my own element to it as well.
My husband and I were married Thanksgiving weekend of 2006 and our color scheme and decorations focused on leaves, pumpkins, straw, raffia, apples and baskets.  I wish I had my Cricut then....So I also drew inspiration from our special day for my project. It is a shaped card using Doodlecharms cartridge.

Materials Used:
*Shaped card cut from Cricut Craft Room
*Recollections & Color Core Cardstock
*Metallic Paper by Recollections
*Cricut Doodlecharms Cartridge by Provocraft (Basket shaped card welded and cut from Cricut Craft Room, inside sentiment mat cut @ 4 1/4", leaves p. 115 cut at 2", apple p. 118 cut at 2 1/4")
*Flower Shoppe Cartridge by Provocraft (Mum 4 p. 21 cut at 2 1/2", 2 1/4", 2", 1 3/4", 1 1/2", 1 1/4" and Mum1 cut at 1 1/4 from Brown cardstock)
