Happy Fall everyone!  Here's a little something to brighten your day.  I just love this time of year.  The leaves are such beautiful colors and the air is so crisp and cool.  I don't care much for summer so by the end I am really looking forward to a cool breezy day.  

The image I am using today comes from Sassy Studio Designs.  Every Friday they have a freebie to offer on Paper Craft Planet.  I really love the images Lindsay comes up with.  This one is called Fall Fun.  I colored her with Whisper Strokes and Copic markers then cut her out with a Stampin' Up die cut and put a little Tim Holtz distress ink to create the blue sky look.  I also added a little Glossy Accents to her hair to shine it up a bit.  

I used DP from Imaginisce.  The others are The Paper Co., Core 'dinations and my stash.  The ribbon is from Darice and the brad is from Bo Bunny.  I had the leaves in my stash for a while and I have no idea where they came from.  The orange ribbon is from Darice.  Finally the sentiment comes from Create With TLC.  Paulette comes up with so many wonderful sentiments.

My oldest daughter is attending the University of North Carolina.  It is so far away and I rarely get to see her.  She will graduate this December but has decided to stay in North Carolina.  I really miss her.  I made this with her in mind.  Hopefully it will brighten her day.

Pan Pastel #36 - Autumn/Fall
