Good morning everyone.  Before I get to my post for today I wanted to share some SUPER news.  Have you been "eyeing" the amazing new JustRite catalog and just "NEED" to have one.  Well check out the note below:

Now on to my project for today.  I am playing along with the Friday challenge over at the JustRite blog which is a color challenge.  The colors are Olive, Chocolate, and Pumpkin - perfect Fall colors.

I chose a border and center from the "Autumn Blessings" set, colored with Copics.  The center phrase is inked with Memento Bamboo Leaves and the borders are inked with Memento Rich Cocoa(Just a reminder that JustRite now carries all of the Memento ink colors)  I handcut the center image and matted it onto a Labels 10 mat.  To create my trees and leaves, I used my Cricut Expressions along with the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.  The 3 panels behind the trees were embossed using the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder and then sanded to bring out the white core of the paper.

That's it for today.  Be sure to stop over to the JustRite blog and give the Friday challenges a try.  It is really helpful to jumpstart your creativity!!

Have a Great Weekend!!
