DCWV November Stack-a-holic Template Challenge

I really loved having that extra hour due to Daylight Savings Time!  I was able to knock out 90% of my layout for the DCWV November Stack-a-holic Template Challenge.  You can see the details for the challenge HERE.

This is the template

This is my take on it

Close up of the bird... he's so cute!

So here's the details: I used the Textures & Finishes Stack by DCWV for my papers. (There's 3 different patterns from this stack represented.)  I used a Hero Arts bare branch stamp from their Fanciful Swirl Alphabet set to make my border. The felt leaves are from Hero Arts.  The other two fabric leaves under the bird are from Michaels.   The awesome glitter bird and parentheses are from The Colorful Life chipboard collection by DCWV.   The chipboard tag is from Heidi Grace Designs.  It was white and I inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink -vintage photo- and then wiped it off to achieve the softer color.  I let it dry overnight.  I tried writing my kids names but that didn't turn out well at all.  My handwriting is awful! So to cover it up and not lose the tag, I made a computer generated tag with their names and ages.   The "Fall Leaves" sentiment is a sticker from Reminisce and sits on a two layers of frames that I cut out using the shadow function from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge.  I inked the edges with my Color Box Dark Brown ink.   I think that covers everything. 

Thanks so much for looking. May your day be blessed.  : )
