Newton's Nook: Falling Into Autumn

 Happy Tuesday!  Welcome to Day #2 of the
Newton's Nook September Releases!
Newton has been at it again and you're sure to
love he and his friends in all of their adorableness :)

Today we're featuring "Falling Into Autumn"

My sample card made with this sweet stamp set:
I used three different colors of Memento Luxe Inks and applied each in a section
of the leaf stamp.  Next I used a sponge to blend the colors together.  I hand-cut 
around the leaves and then swirled them in a circle at the center of the doily die-cut.
The card and patterned paper is by Authentique and the jute string is from May Arts Ribbon.

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
