Hello crafty friends,
How many of you are ready for some really pretty autumn colors?  It's been raining in my neck of the woods off and on for a few days now and I am *loving* that summer is over!  We might have a real Fall this year!  I happen to love Fall and I REALLY love rain.  One of my favorite pastimes is sitting out on the front porch and just watching the rain, reveling in the gift of fresh water pouring down on us.  It helps if I have an ice cold Pepsi (not Coke! :D ) and my family with me. 
So, since Fall appears to be upon us, it's only natural that I would love, love, love CTMH's paper line named Huntington.  The fall color palette makes my heart happy.  This is the Workshop on the Go (WOTG, available for purchase HERE).
It's includes a super cool stamp set that I know I'll get much more use out of, and the embellies look great on finished pages.  I've actually had to order more of the bling because those shades of brown are part of my go-to colors for most cards and things. 
Here are my four finished WOTG pages, 2 two-page layouts: 
They are sans photos as I'm waiting for it to actually BE Fall before I get the right pictures! 
I used my leftover paper and the September SOTM for some cards, as well as Frame Flair (D1546, available HERE), and Look To The Light (B1428, available HERE). Of course, the Frame Flair piece was cut out with my Cricut and the Art Philosophy collection (Z1686, available HERE).  I also used Shimmer Trim in bronze (Z1849, available HERE).
That little pumpkin is cut from the Artbooking cartridge (Z1906, available HERE).
I used the scallop border on the honey CS (above), as well as a
vine cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.
I am really loving that shimmer trim. 
 Don't forget to stamp on the inside of your card!  Here, the "thinking of you" is part of the stamp set called Sincere Expressions (A1146, available HERE).
For the frame and sentiment I used both Sunset and Chocolate inks.  On the card above I also used a Distressed Backgrounds set (D1544, available HERE) on the cream cardstock before adding the patterned paper. 

Somehow I still have a ton of Huntington paper left over from the WOTG so I'm sure I'll get either more scrappy pages from it, or more cards.  We'll see which I get to do first!  :)
Oh and in case you missed it, this is the September SOTM that is available for $17.95 (regular retail) or $5 if you purchase $50 in products.  Click on the "Shop With Me" link on the right column so you can score all of the wonderful CTMH products I've used with these projects.
As always, thank you for stopping by and leaving love!
