Fall Layout and a Couple of Challenges!

 Hey everyone, can you believe it's me again with another post! This Fall layout is for a couple of challenges and I can tell you it was going to be really simple and then it just transformed!
It started out with the Oct. Quick Quotes Club Q kit which uses Teresa Collins papers which are what is in the kit this month, so fun! And I also used my Cricut. The Cartridges I used were: Celebrate with Flourish, Wild Card and Flower Shoppe. I've had some pictures of McCade when we lived in Vegas and it was his first trip to a pumpkin patch (yes there is more to Vegas then Casinos, lol) and yes he does have shorts and sandals on in Oct. It stays pretty warm there till the end of Oct. into Nov. He had so much fun and we came home with Lots of Pumpkins!  
 I also used the yummy Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalk Inks in Mocha Mama and Midnight Confession. The ribbon is Quick Quotes Ribbon also. And what a perfect Quote, again from QQ's! I did some embossing using Devine Swirls and Dotted Swiss folders. And check out that great fence! It's a Martha Stewart deep edge punch called Iron Fence (I've been looking all over for it and finally had to break down and buy it off of Ebay, lol)! And some of the other extras are the buttons, brads and some of my Homemade Sparkly Glimmer Shine. You can kind of see it one the photo below, pretty cool huh! 
Well the two challenges I'm entering this into is the Quick Quotes One Photo Challenge that is open till 10/19/11. You are to use one photo of your choosing and anything else goes! So hope you join us over at the Quick Quotes Blog! I'm also entering this in the Cricut Circle Blogiversary Recipe challenge. You need a Title (check), at least two Cricut Cuts (check) and at least 3 buttons (check). Now the prize you could win is a Cricut Cake Machine and I've been wanting one for quite awhile. So wish me luck and I'll keep you posted!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,
Theresa

What a beautiful layout! I love how you cut the quote up and blocked it out! Putting the photo into the die cut was a VERY CLEVER idea! Love how it turned out! I love to see ideas where you can use flowers on a "masculine" layout and it looks GREAT! Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents!
