Autumn at the Lake

Using one of Susan's sketches from Sketch Savvy, and the Nutmeg line of paper from Cosmo Cricket, I made this fun, colorful layout about our family Thanksgiving celebration at the cabin.

As you can see, this sketch was originally for Christmas, but I decided it would go perfectly with die cut leaves using Tim Holtz's Tattered Leaves die instead of the ornaments.

The circle was stitched with DMC floss in a warm orange. I just love the brown back ground with the light green and teal. It is such an unexpected fall color set, but it's perfect!

It was so fun to get to use a 2 page sketch for this! It made my job so easy. Thanks for the great sketch Susan, and for the wonderful fall color scheme Cosmo Cricket!
