I FINALLY got to do some scraftin - oops, was I trying to type scrappin' or craftin'?? 
Guess today's a make up your own word Friday.  LOL

I've been looking at all the wonderful challenges all week and just WISHING I could participate in at least a few.  We're just about done with all the peach canning and I figured I DESERVED a reward!!!!! 
FINALLY tonight, I got one!!

My Challenge Journey began with the Bugaboo Stamps/Catch The Bug Challenge (Fall and Sewing) which lead me to the Whimsie Doodle Challenge (Sew) and thinking of Sewing lead me to the Sew Many Challenges (embossing) and when I emboss I usually end up Distressing things too which lead me to the ABC Challenge (distressing)and after all the fall air and sewing, I needed to do a little Eat Sleep Stamp and used their sketch which then lead me to The Kitchen Sink (Fall).

So, after ALL that, here's what I came up with!
Image - Bugaboo Stamps "More Turtles - TURT Fall"
Paper - Kraft and Burgandy Cardstock
Technique - Heat Embossed Leaves on image
Distressing (with Ink)
Handmade Paper (leaves)
Coloring - Copics
Punches - EK Success
Extra STUFF - Burlap, Buttons, Leaves, Miscellaneous Leaf stamps and Faux Stitching
Man I love a challenge!!
