Theme Day Thursday reveal- MCCR

Happy Thursday fellow scrappers.. 
Us girls over at My Cricut Craftroom Blog were asked to create a project using the theme FALL FOLIAGE..
I love Autumn, its my favorite time of the year.. The colors are amazing and the cool change in weather after a hot summer is such a blessing.. 
So, when we were given this theme to create with, I jumped at the chance..Then the creativity hit me, make an Autumn wreath on a layout and then I found this adorable photo of my son and his girlfriend, so the title was a breeze..LOL

Here is my project:
sorry about the photo.. The sun wanted to give me a hard time when I snapped this, but the close ups are better, I promise..

so, with that said let me tell you how I created this layout:

First of all, I grabbed some of my Bo Bunny "Forever Fall" papers, 
I've decided to try to use some of the papers I've collected over the years..LOL

I started out by cutting a large circle silhoutte 9.5"  using my George and Basic Shapes cartridge..
Then cut different colored leaves from the Doodlecharms cartridge.  Sizes varied from 2" to 1.5".. randomly placing them on the wreath. I inked and chalked all of the edges on the leaves..
The acorns are on the Create-A-Critter cartridge, those were cut at 2.5"..

I absolutely love these pumpkins.. These are on the Imagine cartridge "Enjoy the Seasons",  they are cut at 4".  I first cut them attached and then separated.. I layered them with foam tape and then used a stamp sentiment on the banner..
The sun flowers are on the Walk In My Garden cartridge and they were cut at 2".

The title is also on the "Enjoy the Seasons" Imagine cartridge.. I foam taped that to my layout as well, I like giving my layouts lots of dimension..
the edge punch is a Martha Stewart punch.. 

and finally the love birds.. My son just turned 19 in July and is head over heals in love.  His girlfriend is a real sweet heart..
