Winners and some squares!

I love following manufacturers blogs and being inspired by challenges by their teams.  Recently on the October Afternoon blog, there was a challenge to use 12 squares on your page.

Since the Saturday Afternoon collection just arrived in the store, I was anxious to break into it, and made three pages including this fall one:

I used a few bits from some other collections from OA like Apple Cider.

I used 12 squares of different sizes and just added some different bits to them here and there.  Some of them I added stitching around, and the large one I punched out some leaves....then I used the punch parts on my page, too.

**********Store News**********

The new Simple Stories I Am and Say Cheese 2 collections have arrived in the store!  Things are going so fast, so it looks like I have may have to order some more soon!

Also, some Echo Park collection kits have arrived, too!
