Life.Paper.Scrapbook. August Color Challenge

3:43 PM

As much as I love the sunshine, I'm a fall girl at heart. I am blessed to live in beautiful Oregon where there is an abundance of trees, making autumn all the more beautiful! I was very excited to see this color palette for the August Color Challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook. These colors just scream fall and make me crave a Pumpkin Spice Latte with a side of pumpkin bread!

Here is my take on the color challenge:

I'm going to be completely honest with you--this page took FOR-EV-ER. I cut the diamond shapes out on my silhouette, covered them with adhesive, and laid the strips down. I then placed them how I wanted to be on the page (without adhesive), and pierced stitching holes. I took everything off, sewed it, and stuck it all back on. It is not perfect at all, but I'm happy with it. It was supposed to be an eight point star, but somehow I only ended up with seven. Oh well! Here is the image I was inspired by:
