Hi everyone!! Enjoying the fall weather yet? 
That's if you are getting some? ;)
Time for another Cut It Up Challenge!
We have a really fun sponsor lined up for this challenge so make sure to check it out!

Aren't those colors so pretty? I decided to make a Welcome Banner for our front door.
I don't really use a lot of cards in the fall and I'm not really a scrapbooker.
So here is my banner, there are a few pictures because well banners are hard to photograph, at least for me they are! :)

 Close- up of the leaves.

Our little Acorn family ;)
Complete with the daddy with a mustache, hahaha!!!
I used cereal boxes to make my banner sturdy for the front door.
The kids just love our little family on the last leaf.

Hi Everyone!
I have finally been getting back into the swing of things now that school has started back up.
Today I am sharing two projects I made for a monthly swap, me and my Bestie Stacey do.
Our last swap was to create a home decor project. I decided to make her something for her master bedroom.
These projects are always tough for me to photograph properly.
I bought these wooden plaques at Micheal's and painted them and then sanded them. I used little screws to hang them together, also from Micheal's. I cut the monogram letters from Tie The Knot Cricut Cartridge to spell "Love".
Here are some close ups of each letter.

 I really love how it turned out and then I decided to make her a card to go with it. 
I didn't get a chance to send her an Anniversary card this summer, their Anniversary was in June.
So I used this week's Mojo Monday 257 Sketch.

Here is my card for her:
