Getting ready...

 I promised to show how my latest mini album turned out after I added the photos and embellishments...but it's not quite done, you see. I got sidetracked (my middle name) with this little thing called Thanksgiving. I realized it's this Thursday and I hadn't decorated at all.
When I went to Jo-Ann's and Target last night to pick up some pretty fall decor, there was NONE. NADA.

Well, good thing I have craft supply on hand.

Thanks to the never ending inspiration called Pinterest I made a nice looking banner.

I used the Cricut cartridge called "Mother's Day Bouquet"

 and cut out leaves in different fall colors. I cut them 6 inch and 7 1/2 (I think).
For the letters I used the Songbird cartridge.

 I'm pretty sure I made them 5 inch big.

I inked all the edges and added pop-up dots between the smaller and larger leaves.
I used glue dots to attach the leaves to a ribbon. I'm not sure that was a smart idea...I don't know if it will hold. We will see once I start cooking and the temperature will rise in here...

Oh yeah, behind the leaves with the letters I added smaller leaves in different sizes.

Whatcha think?

Pin It!
