Mischief Isn't Just for Halloween

I created this festive Fall themed layout using the Mischief paper kit and Level 2 rub-ons from Close To My Heart. I love how much character the rub-on images add to the page. Oh and those Desert Sand shapes under my pumpkin rub-ons...I cut those with the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge. How did we get by for so long without that?

Let me explain the younger kids went to a pumpkin patch for a preschool fieldtrip and collected there tiny pumpkins. Our older daughter wanted to decorate something too, so I handed her a banana. We'll see if that catches on.

Have a memorable day,
