Falling into Celebration

Today, we have so much to look forward to.

This month has us celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving. We have the colours of fall surrounding us, and Diwali and Halloween on the near horizon. So bring your best colours, embellishments, and lights to brighten up this month's Dare challenge incorporating the colours of fall, the celebration of the lights in honour of Diwali, or you creepiest/funniest (LOL) Halloween tricks and magic.

Before we head off to see the projects, I must apologize. If you have been following the Emerald Creek Tour of tradeshows, you will understand why I confused all of my teamies and this blog post. It was set to end on the 30th in some of what I had done, BUT, (insert embarrassed, shy shrug) I may have forgotten to tell my team. So, I am chalking in up to brain dead fun and exhaustion. Thank you all for understanding and ENJOY all of the delights the team has shared.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner here in Canada, I decided to make a Happy Thanksgiving wall hanging for our this month's challenge at Emerald Creek Dares.  The Eldergrove stamp has made another appearance here (love this stamp!) but this time I've used it as a backdrop for my Schoolhouse stamp 'cabin'.  I've a few close-ups and a description of how I made it over at my blog, Hope you will be able to stop by.

I hope you are ready for the next "DARE CHALLENGE" on the Emerald Creek Supplies Blog. Since we are heading into fall and of course Thanksgiving, the next challenge is "Falling into Celebration"!
I embossed the Pumpkin Jack with Stem using the Thanksgiving Embossing Powder...it is the perfect embossing powder don't you think!?! Make sure to stop by my blog at "Scrapbook Flair" to see the tutorial on how to recreate my Thanks tag! Hugs, Pam

As the season turns, we are once again thankful for the fruits of the harvest. We celebrate with family and friends and give thanks for our many blessings as we gather around tables decorated in the rich colours of Fall. What better way to make your guests feel special and bring a Fall festive feel to your table setting than with seasonally inspired personalized place cards. Here, I used the readily available and plentiful element of the season... fallen leaves... paired with some embossed hand lettered brush script.
