Fall Ball Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fall Ball Blog Hop, brought to you by the design teams of Made Especially For You and I Heart {ippity}!

Today we're happy to share with you all sorts of fall-themed projects to get you in the mood for a season full of crisp leaves, bountiful pumpkin patches, warm apple cider, and all those other things we love that make fall such a wonderful time of year.

If you've come from Gerry's blog, Gerry's Scrappy Life you're in the right place. If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Made Especially For You.

For my project, I created a layout! I can't even  begin to tell you how behind I am on layouts! Anywhoo! When I was looking for cardstock for my project, I found all of these patterns and colors that reminded me of Autumn and I didn't want to put any down! So I decided to create a layout and have the paper more visible rather than cluttering it with die cuts. While making this layout, I fell in love Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I just ♥ it!!! 
(Click photos to enlarge)

So here are the deets:
"Fall" is from Graphically Speaking cartridge.
"is in the air" is from Lyrical Letters cartridge... as you can tell, I didn't use a rule or anything to make sure they were straight lol.. 
The apple is from Give a Hoot cartridge
The sentiment is from Joy's Life BRAND NEW set, It's All Fall puns
Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink to ink around some edges.

We also have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment on every stop of the hop!
