Prepping for Fall

Happy beautiful  Thursday everyone!
So my husband was not very thrilled when I announced that I would like to start decorating for Fall.
It's still summer, after all, and our kiddos don't go back to school until the first week of September.

But Fall is made of my favorite color orange, in all its beautiful hues.
It also means football, crock pots, no a/c (lower electric bill), and well...
kids in school. teehee!

So instead I decided to color up a Fall image from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps:

Isn't Fall Charlotte beautiful?
I paired her with some verrrry old papers from PTI called First Fruits
as well as a layer of dp and a sentiment from Stampin' Up.
The embellishments were made from Martha Stewart's leaf punch and QuicKutz Flourish die.

Here is the sketch I used from Seems A Little Sketchy:

My husband has a point - there aren't any Fall challenges going on right now in blogland. lol!
So I guess I'll put my bins back in the garage and wait a few more weeks. ;)

Thank you so much for coming by on this beautiful Thursday!
