Happy Fall Banner!

Fall is my all-time favorite time of year. It took me a little longer to get into the fall spirit this year, but now I am right on track!
I decided to make a banner to compliment some of my other fall decor.
I cut the banner from the Mother's Day 2010 cart, the letters are cut from the Pooh Font cart. I tried my hand at making rosettes and they didn't turn out too bad for my first try (I pulled out

my trusty glue gun for these)., The paper is from the DCWV Amber Autumn set from last year. The pumpkins are from the Pooh and Friends cart, apple from the Country Life cart and the leaves are from the Sesame Street Seasons cart. (I purchased a few carts this summer from the great deals at cricutmachine.com. They have super deals if you watch for them). I inked some edges, added some stickles and used my Cuttlebug, Zig two-way glue pen, ATG gun (a fairly new purchase and I am still getting the hang of it, everyone makes it look so easy!). If I had it to do over again, I would have made the banner and letters a bit smaller, but once I was that far...well you know, there was no going back.
Have a great day!
