One Fall Day + Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Leafing Memories Behind blog hop! I am so happy to have you stop by my humble little blog! If you did not arrive to my blog from the uber talented Ashley's blog please return to Amanda's blog to follow the hop in order so that you don't miss any wonderful inspiration from the amazing ladies participating with me!

The idea for the blog hop this time around is pretty simple this time. The requirement for this project is that it must have leaves (or a leaf) in it in some way shape or form. I went with my go to project, a layout:


I placed my title on the layout but I found it was just floating there, completely disconnected.  So I took to my needle and thread and created a swirl effect surrounding my title all the way down to the floating leaf.  I then added a little more stitching to the right as well.


For the leaves on my layout I created them myself using felt with stitched veins.  It worked out great because I could make them any size I needed, in any color I wanted!


And now you have your chance to win!  I am doing a giveaway to one of you.  Simply comment on this post and become a follower.  I will do a random draw on Monday morning; make sure to check back then to see if you won.

Don't forget about Amanda's giveaway!  Take the inspiration we've provided you and create your own project that is leaf inspired.  Post it to your blog, gallery or Flickr and share the link here in the Mr Linky widget on Amanda's Blog.  You have until the end of day Sunday, Oct 23 to post!  

Now for the next stop on your blog hop, please head on over to very funny and super talented Kathy!
