Can You Follow A Recipe?

Before we get into our next Guylou's Inimitability Challenge, I want to thank all of you fantastic people out there, who not only left some love for G (on B-day hop) but to all of the DT members as well. Sometimes we don't take the time to thank you for the great comments and love you leave...just so you know it truly does mean the world to me.

OK now onto the next challenge!
This challenge is brought to us and you by Gina!
I cannot tell you all the wonderful things about her (it would take to long)
but if you check out her blog you will find them all out for yourself! Love you Gina!
We have a recipe to follow!
F ~ Fabric
A ~ Amber (color)
L ~ Lace
L ~ Leaves

Here is what I came up with:

I used Chuck and Pumkin and Dorothy and Pumpkin 2 for my images.
That is fabric behind the images and crocheted lace at the top.
I added hanging leaf charms and then stuck some leaves and acorns all over.
Some of the leaves are amber there is my recipe.
I do want to add an amber colored candle to it...when I find the right shade.
The fabric I cut a basic shape and ran it through my zyron, glued it to a piece of cardstock,
then ran it through my cuttlebug with a spellbinders die. The crocheted lace I hot glued on
and used jump ring to secure my charms. It was pretty easy to do...
maybe you can do one for your holiday decorations!
Our guest designer this week is Jen from
So check out her project and leave some love!
The challenge runs from today through 10pm (EST) on the 3rd of November!
So get on it! As always follow the guidelines on the challenge blog!
Have a wonderful day! HUGS!!!

Well, you made me get all smushy mushy with the comments about me. Thanks. (hug). You are so darned creative, too. I would have never thought to do anything but a papercraft (card or layout, that's about it!). You go with your imaginative self!
