So Very Thankful Fancy Pants Summer's End

Today is challenge day over at CookingWithCricut
and today is my last post as a member of the
CWC Design Team ---
I have enjoyed an entire year of working with Melin!
and the fun and sweet ladies in the four Design Teams (quarterly terms).

Today's Challenge #57 is to use Scarecrows, Hay, or Crows and a Sketch.

I created this two page layout of my babies enjoying the pumpkin patch.

 On this page (left) I used green and brown twine, genuine hemp, couple of tags, MCT stamps (word "love"), the title is from the FP Summer's End collection's "glitter cuts" -- and Cricut Pop Up Neighborhood cartridge.
 The bottom orange colored stitch is a rub-on from the FP collection's rub-on sheet.  The brown stitching was done with a sewing machine and brown thread.
 I inked the hay, corn field and pumpkins with distress in and chalk. Added brads to wheels.
 For the right page I used the Cricut Pop Up Neighborhood and Old West (hay). Additionally I utilized green and brown twine, FP rub-ons for the orange stitch, word-Fall and the "so much to be thankful for" phrase, the leaves are from the FP collection's glitter cuts.  I wrapped genuine hemp on the scarecrow's neck and on the hay pack. Finished it with a MCT stamp on the tag and stapled the twine with Tim Holtz tiny attacher.
