This week seems to have flown by doesn't it!
 This week is the Laughlin River Run and we have friends coming in  from Las Vegas. 
The whole valley is filled with bikers, its always a fun weekend.
Excited to be meeting up with a few other friends that we dont
get to see to often.

Okay so it is time for our FRIDAY CHALLENGEt
This week it is my turn to do the challenge/tutorial and it is
 to make leaves using vellum and chalk.
 After making up a pile of leaves I decided to do a tag.
 I made the tag base by using a Fleur De Lis Spellbinder corner, also 
using it for the bottom. Just cut plenty of layers with some stitching and
embossing from different fall colors to go with my leaves.
 Used some modeling paste for the dots. The chipboard key
 was heat embossed with some black and gold. A button from the
 infamous button box..The acorns are perfect with the fall leaves 
 and they are from the Autumn Splendor Set. The sentiment is from
 the Cracked Hello set. Added to a punched circle.
 Hope you will check out the tutorial,the leaves
 are fun and easy to make.
