Corrosive Challenge #182 - All About Fall

Well, I guess this is it.  Labor Day weekend, the end of summer, one last hurrah before the cold settles in.  Although it makes me sad to say goodbye to summer, I DO like autumn.  Back to School, pretty foliage, and of course, Halloween!  We'll be spending our long weekend doing a little BBQ-ing, back to school shopping, and hopefully a little crafting, as my anniversary is on Tuesday, and I decided to try to make something instead of buying a gift...maybe I'll post it if it turns out ok!

A new challenge means a new sponsor, and The Corrosive Challenge has a wonderful company lined up for you!  We are very pleased to welcome Meljen's Designs!  These images are just too stinkin' cute.

What better way to usher in a new month, a new season, a new challenge, and a new sponsor than to make it "All About Fall"!  Fall colors, Fall images, anything Fall at all and it qualifies for the challenge!  The team was given some images to work with, and though it was hard to choose, (I ended up changing my mind!), I worked with the adorable "Big Sweater Kid"
My son will be starting Kindergarten on Wednesday, so I thought this would be a perfect image to use for a card for his new teacher.
He is colored with Copics, with glossy accents added to his eyes and shoes.  Sketch was an older one I have had printed out.  I added a couple stickers from K & Co "Teacher" sticker medley, some hemp twine, and metal gem stickers.  Papers all from DCWV "The Wild Splendor" Stack.

Wishing everyone a Happy Fall, be sure to stop by The Corrosive Challenge to enter your finest fall creations!

So totally loving your design papers. They are perfect with this digi! Good luck with your little one going to school. My oldest went off to college, and it is sad how fast the time goes by! Cherish every moment, the good and the bad LOL, for they grow up and become their own people!
