Fall Wreath :):):)

Hi everyone :):):)

Recently I bought a straw wreath on clearance at Michaels (It was originally $9.00 and I got it for $1.79! Woot! Woot!) and I have been holding onto for awhile waiting for the inspo to come...wellllllllllllll it did when I got my September DT kit from Artful Delight! :):):):):):):):):)

In the September kit was some new Jillibean Soup - Apple Cheddar Soup collection...and I made some paper flowers with that collection to place around my wreath :):):):):):):):):)


And another old time western photo of the kids in Prescott! :):):):):):) (Forgive the blue spot on the photo of these pics... it's not there IRL...hmmmmmm)

I did glue the flowers to the wreath using Beacon's Zip Dry (LOVE this stuff!)...and then I had some long stick pins in my stash to ensure they stay on the wreath! :):):):)



And here is the wreath before I got a hold of it... :):):)


And I wanted to share a card I made for a friend! I used some My Mind's Eye and SRM Stickers :):):):):):):)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)
