Lacy Sunshine Change of Seasons/Weather


Fall is definitely in the air...(finally) and I'm loving the beautiful weather.  At Lacy Sunshine our new Challenge is exactly that, Changing Seasons, or Weather but it doesn't have to be Fall.  Any season will do.  I love everything about Autumn, though and just had to use the adorable Rory Collecting Autumn Leaves.  Isn't she just the sweetest ever?  Instead of a card, I decided to alter one of the plain brown shopping bags that seem to collect in my closet.  Would make a lovely gift bag all dolled up like this, don'tcha think?


I've colored Rory with Copics in lovely Autumn colors and added a glitter sunflower sticker to her hat.  Rory was quite popular with the DT for this challenge so be sure to pop by the Challenge Blog to see her done in different colorways.  You can also see this week's Loyalty Program digi, Emily Windy Days,  which you can get FREE if you used a Lacy Sunshine image in last week's challenge, or if not, you can pick her up for half price for the duration of this challenge.


I've added many layers to my bag including a recycled bit from a mesh bag that some silverware came in, and the large sunflower at the bottom left was originally attached to an elastic ponytail holder.  I've popped some shaped pieces and a sentiment sticker that came from a Bo Bunny Ephemera pack I won from PunkYouGirl.  The twig wreath is a Memory Box die.  Now it's time for you to play along at Lacy Sunshine.  Can't wait to see what you create.

I'm entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday ATG Challenge, 613 Avenue Create ATG, Crazy 4 Challenges Leaves or a Leaf, Open Minded Crafting Fall/ Autumn, the Outlawz Paper a la Mode Add a Sentiment, Creative Fingers Add a Sentiment, Daring Cardmakers Autumnal Forest, Frosted Designs Fall Challenge, Scrapping Everyday Miracles Mini Crop Challenge #5, and If You Give a Crafter a Cookie challenge #2 Fall
