Crafty Challenge #58 - Autumn Daze

The challenge? Create an Autumn based project...

Is everyone out there as excited as I am to feel the weather changing? It was gorgeous here yesterday after a few scorchers. Mid-seventies! Clear skies! Breezy and beautiful! Today promises  nothing less than the perfect autmun afternoon, which is why my brood and I are heading out to the zoo. We all need a break and some good old fashioned quality time together.
 (Sadly I hear rain is in the forecast Monday and Tuesday so it may not be as glorious out by the time you read this post...sorry!)

We all enjoy the natural treasures that autumn brings and the rich hues that we see in the colors marching along the hill tops. The rustic reds and golds of our maples set off against the bright blue autumn sky...is there anything more glorious?

Well, someone gave it a try...with the richly saturated and vibrant colors of the Indian Summer designer paper by  Basic Grey. If you don't know this paper you are in for a visual feast!

Here is what our paper looks like...just a sample of course!

The papers above are available at Die Cuts R Us in a 6x6 sampler pack; you receive 18 6x6 sheets (2 of each design) for $3.50.

Aren't they fabulous!

Our designers worked with these and created all of these amazing projects for you:

Well, I don't know about you but these projects make me want a warm cup of cider and hike in our local state park. Before you go out and do that though...make a project with an AUTUMN THEME and link it up to Mr. Froggy.
