Paper Playtime Challenge #88 ~ Autumn Colours

Good Monday morning again, my friends.  Wow, that was a fast week.  Did you get a chance to enter the quick one week "Anything Goes" challenge?  If not, today is a new challenge at Paper Playtime.  It is the first Monday of the month and it is a challenge to use Autumn colours and a die cut of some sort.  Our sponsor for this two week challenge is none other than my friend Theresa, The Scrapbooking Queen who is giving the winner a set of 4 Action Wobbles.  Whoo hoo!!!

I decided to do something a little different for this challenge.  Autumn is one of my fave times of year with all the pretty leaves and wonderful colours.  I tend to take lots of scenery pictures at this time of year and have made a scrapbook layout where I can display some of my special ones.  It is a 12" x 12" double page layout and can hold either a 5" x 7" and two 4" x 6" pictures or any combination that will fit on the photo mats.

 Close up of Title:

Technically because I live in Canada we use the British spelling of colours but since this was a cut already on the cartridge I guess it will have to do.

Close up of Leaf  Bundles to show dimension:

After cutting out both layers of the leaves and gluing them together I ran them through a crimper to give them some texture.
