autumn days

Hello.  The end of the month is creeping up fast!!  I have one last LO to share using my July DT kit of Crate Paper - Story Teller collection from Handmade by Suzanne.  I have enjoyed this collection so very much ☺

 For this LO I've used a cute photo of my littlest man - playing in the autumn leaves.  I really wanted to show the beautiful pattern papers in the collection , so I've layered a few of them together and also included some of the strips which are along the bottom edge of the papers where the description is.  Using every last piece!!
Here are some close-up's:
 ... the fun wooden frames which are part of this collection.  I've used it to frame one of the tags and then added some black hemp twine ...
 ... the adorable pegs - they go so well with tags and making banners ... also popped in a Lil Red Rocket Spotty button ...
 ... another button and my journalling ... and  a fun little poem which reflects the day - walking to the park where there are plenty of autumn trees ...
... this little embellishment has been made by punching out a circle from pattern paper and then using an epoxy dot to cover it.  (these epoxy dots are also used for the bottle caps) - I'm loving the flair buttons that are coming in, so this is like a 'home-made' one ☺☺

and here is a collage of my creations of Crate Paper for July -

This Crate Paper - Story Teller collection is available at Handmade by Suzanne.   as well as many other gorgeous products.
Thanks for coming by and I hope you've been inspired ☺☺
