Fall Leaves - Made Especially for You


Welcome to the Fall Ball Blog Hop, brought to you by the design teams of Made Especially For You and I Heart {ippity}!

Today we're happy to share with you all sorts of fall-themed projects to get you in the mood for a season full of crisp leaves, bountiful pumpkin patches, warm apple cider, and all those other things we love that make fall such a wonderful time of year.

If you've come from Jessica's blogyou're in the right place. If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Made Especially For You.

For my project, I decorated a hurricane candle holder.

 I used my Tim Holtz leaf die and distress inks to cut and colour some leaves, a burlap flower adds to the rustic look.  If you are a regular visitor here - you will know I post tutorials every week - look for a tutorial on this project next week!  If you are new here, why don't you pop back and check it out!

As part of the hop we also have lined up some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment on every stop of the hop!
