Make It Monday #107

Hi guys and welcome back to another linky Make It Monday party! Michelle is currently on holiday with her family and our fearless leader for the next few weeks is Lisa Minckler. I know what you are thinking, now it's a party. hehehe This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Meljen's Designs and I'm using the Country Star Pumpkin digital image. I'm so happy that fall is nearly here in the US and the temps will start cooling off for good.

My inspiration for this card came from the fall season itself-every fall kids are back in school, state fairs are being hosted around the US, and pumpkins are a familiar sight. The papers in the Crate Paper's School Spirit Collection were a perfect fit with my theme. I distressed the score card & alpha dp's and attached to my orange base. One of the dp's in the pack featured student's grade cards and I fussy cut two of them to add a pop of color and visual interest. A Webster's Pages Country Birds Whimsies in brown perches atop one of them and makes himself at home. ;-) The star of the show however is my Country Star Pumpkin image which I colored with Copic markers. Spellbinders dies created my layered panels for my image and Kaisercraft Chocolate Pearls anchor the corners while brown polka dot ribbon adds a bit of whimsy. I'd like to thank our generous sponsor for providing the design team with digital images to work.

Every week the DT is asked to choose one entry for our Pick of the Week and I'm finding it harder and harder to choose only one. I'm thinking maybe I could pick one for every category entered like cards, LO's, altered projects, mixed media, etc... what do you think? After all, Michelle is away on holiday and they say while the cat's away the mice will play. I was torn this week so I'm going for it with my POTW and a runner-up. Shhhh! My POTW is #32 Heather A. Hudson and her gorgeous shabby mini album. It made my heart sing and she's taken terrific close ups of each page and provided wonderful details of how she created it. Be sure to click the link above to see this beauty for yourself. My runner up is #55 Amanda Davis and her adorable little handbag which is seriously too cute. Thanks for all the inspiration ladies and to all of the amazing weekly entries!
