Waltzingmouse September Blog Party - Fall

It is the 17th of the month and how I am wishing it really was Fall here in CA.  Unfortunately I am only able to picture it in my head as it is so hot here with barely any signs of Fall in view yet.  This month's Waltingmouse Blog Party theme is Fall, so I thought very hard and tried to imagine what I wish it looked like outside and created a Fall Painter's Tray filled with lots of Waltzingmouse stamped images.
The painters tray is by 7 Gypsies and is 6 1/2 x 6 1/2".  The largest panel is stamped with the smallest houndstooth pattern from Heirloom patterns.  I added a beautiful Pumpkin die from Serendipity Stamps (Pumpkin Die) cut three times and stitched down the middle.  I added a few copic colored pearls along the middle.
The top small box is stamped with Teeny Trees onto some Bo Bunny Forever Fall patterned paper in brown red and green.  The center box is also Bo Bunny paper but the little medallion that looks a lot like a sunflower to me is from Dainty Doilies Large with the center colored with a copic marker and popped up with dimensionals.  The third little box is my favorite image from Bountiful Basket Additions, the sweet pumpkins peeking out from a wicker basket lined with lace trim.  The final piece of my tray is some die cut leaves from Papertrey Ink, Turning a New Leaf and a Wonderful Word die, also from Papertrey ink.  This should make a very cute little decoration to remind me that Fall really and truly is on it's way!

Here's a link to the WM Blog Party, bet you will see a lot of great Fall-themed projects!

Oh how lovely!! There's so much to look at in the tray. Love, love the die cut pumpkin, and the sweet pictures down the side. The lace trim around the basket is fab!

Cathy you are the die cut queen in my eyes and if that is what fall looks like in your eyes I want to be there. Really really gorgeous!

Shut the front door, Cathy!!! This is amazing! I never think to do things like this because I am scared to try, but this should be on the shelves of a country store. I love it all, especially that gorgeous pumpkin.

Holy MOLY, that is one awesome pumpkin, Cathy! It's so detailed and elegant. It's found a perfect home in your sweet shadow box. My eye went right to that awesome layered doily flower, it is soo pretty! Can't leave out the sweet basket wit it's lacy border. Always love your amazingly creative 3-D projects!
