Well, I tried to make a video for this one, but apparently it was not to be! I attempted to film the whole layout and then realized the darn video camera wasn't turned on! Who knew there had to be a red light? I do now!! LOL
So, in order to spare myself any frustration (and further embarrassment! LOL), I decided this time to just take pictures and do another video soon. I may still take a short video of the squirrel. It's popped up using a new product called Wobbles (to be released in January!). The company that makes this offered some free samples, and I was lucky enough to be able to get some to test them out. And can I just say...they are FANTASTIC and SOO much fun!!! I love them already and can see myself using them often in my cards and layouts!
Okay, on to today's project. For this cute fall layout, I used paper from one of my most favorite companies. - Imaginisce!! I love the texture on their papers as well as their awesome designs!!
I'm sorry the pictures aren't the best, but as you probably have figured out by now, I'm not much of a photographer. I hope you'll like it anyway though.
The entire layout:
Close up of Page 1:
Patterned Paper by Imaginisce's "Apple Cider"collection (Autumn Splendor, Fall in Love, Cinnamon Sticks)

Create A Critter cartridge- Squirrel - 3 1/2" (trace, then cut out and pop up nose). Add to layout using Action Wobble.

I think that pretty much covers it. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. You can reach me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Since I planned on doing the Tuesday toppers today but did not get around to it, look for those soon too!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
