Cut It Up Challenge #2- Fall Photo Inspiration

Hi there!  It's time for another challenge over at Cut It Up!  In honor of the first day of fall tomorrow, the challenge is to create a fall themed project based on the inspiration photo that you can find at the bottom of this post. Make sure you also include a die-cut on your project!  For my project I made a fall layout.  I cut the word "Fall" out with the new Create a Critter 2 cartridge.  I used the Trendy Twine (Orange Truffle) twine on my photo mats.  Head over to the Cut It Up challenge blog to check out the great prize and to link up your creation.  You can also see the awesome projects from rest of the design team.  I can't wait to see what you create!  I am also going to enter   Thanks for looking and have a great day!  :)
