I had so much fun creating this layout :)

PPPR Autumn Harvest Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Autumn Harvest Blog Hop!!

 We are all making Autumn themed  projects using some files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store and you seriously do NOT want to miss a single stop in this hop!!

You should of arrived here from Melissa's blog, but if you just stopped by and want to join the hop, please start at the Pretty Paper, Pretty printers blog by clicking HERE..

For my project, I decided to recycle some toilet paper rolls and created a mini album, plus I wanted to make it really fun, so created a stand to go with it using the cutest wagon cutting file ever..

Here is my project:
remember to click on the photo to make it bigger..

Ta-Daaaa!! This came out so much cuter than I could of ever imagined :)
I used the wagon cut in the pumpkin patch cutting file and decided to create a little box in the middle of two them, creating an actual 3D wagon to hold my mini album.. 

here you can see they come apart.. Added a tassel, some shear ribbon and some cut fall themed charms I had in my stash.. You can see the cute little owl hanging by the tassel..

The front cover I added a bunch of little pumpkins that come the Pumpkin patch cutting file.. there are lots to choose from and what I like the best is, you dont' have to cut the faces.. Living in Finland, we don't have a traditional Halloween like in the states, so I love the fact I can use these pumpkins as just cute little pumpkins..

and lets get to the innards shall we..LOL

Lots more pumpkins to embellish the inside of the album, I also added some of the leaves from the Leaves cutting file.. lots of cute autumn leaves to choose from..  I found a fence cut in the SIL store and then created some circle tags to tuck in behind the pumpkins and fence.. 
there are also pull out tags at the ends of the pages..

Cutting files I used to embellish my TP mini album and the wagon stand:

Add a Calendar-Project Life reveal

Can't say I'm happy its another Monday but I am happy to share a project life page I created for our PL challenge reveal over at S.O.U.S..  For this weeks challenge, we decided to keep semi simple and asked our team to add a CALENDAR to their page...
I found mine in the SIL store, just print and cut.. Wow, it was just way too easy :)  I added a small circle to the day, printed it and then just cut around the edge.. Love my cameo and software..

so, here is my take on this Mondays Project life challenge:

 I love to bake and do so almost every weekend..LOL  Gotta bake something and I've found so many awesome recipes on Pinterest that I just can't resist to try them...
I made some super duper yummy cinnamon rolls last weekend and actually took some photos of them cause they turned out so good :)

how about a few close ups of the cards I created:

The calendar which I printed and cut, then added a die cut spatula to the bottom.. the bowls, I love those bowls and I had to use them on this layout.. The text I created myself, just printed it onto the card and then cut around the edge, adding the die cut bowls..

Yum!! The rolling pin is a die cut and I just printed the text onto it, cutting again just around the edge of the rolling pin.. Love being able to add text to cuts..

I didnt have many photos for this page, so I decided to make the week title BIG and took up four cards.. Wowzah!! and those cute little cinnamon roll die cuts I found online, when I googled cinnamon roll SVG.. I don't unfortunately have that link :(

My fancy journaling..LOL   I once again added the text to the card, just printed it and then cut around edge.. super easy and fun.. speaking of fun, the mixer is a die cut ..

Gooey Goodness, seriously messy to eat, but so worth it.
no licking the screen..LOL

added some stickles to this sub-title..

My cauldron, added green sticles to it..

I added some faux stitching  to the pumpkins with the SIL software..
