Ink & Share September Scrapbook Hop - Autumn/Halloween...


Good afternoon and welcome to the Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop for September.

Our theme for this month is Autumn/Halloween.  You may have joined me from Sue or starting the hop here.

I have chosen to spotlight one of my favourite photos of my nephew pictured with his two beautiful children.  The photo was taken a few years ago, as Elliot was 6 just this past week.  The children sadly lost their mum last year, very suddenly, and I am so extremely proud of all of them and especially my nephew for being such a fantastic dad.

I used the baby wipe technique to colour my leaves using Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Crumb Cake reinkers.  I then fussy cut the leaves (yes who forgot I had the dies waiting to cut these beauties for me, lol!!!! - good job I enjoy fussing cutting)

The dots are made using our Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with a drop of Early Espresso reinker and some with a drop of Cajun Craze reinker.  I then used my ball tools to make dots of varying sizes.

Finally I added some gems and a linen thread bow to complete.

I hope you like my page today, Heike is up next and I know she will have something amazing to show you today.

All of the products used in making this project can be found below and can be purchased from my online shop by clicking on the links.

Happy Scrappin'
