Fabulous Fall and a Diva Inspirations Hop

Hi friends!  It's time for our monthly Diva Inspirations Hop and challenge!  Today, the Divas are sharing their takes on this month's theme, Autumn Lovelies. There's a prize for commenting and a prize for playing along with the challenge, so be sure to check out all the details over on the Verve Blog today.


I'm kicking off the party right here, so grab a treat and settle in for some autumn loveliness!  I love autumn and any excuse to break out some fall papers and stamps will do!  Here I used some beautiful papers from the Fall & Night collection by Recollections.  I sponged each layer with antique linen and vintage photo distress ink to give it a vintage feel.  The stamps are from the newly re-stocked Better Together.  I loved the chevron border on the quilt in the inspiration pic, so chose to use markers to ink up the stamp in an autumn rainbow of chevrons!  I added a double seam binding bow with ribbon from the Autumn Elements Ribbon Collection and then finished off with early espresso mats and some leaves from the just released {today} Fall Fancy Shaker Mix.

Check out all three of the new sequin and shaker mixes...



Okay, thanks so much for hopping by!  
Next up is the lovely Amy Kolling!
