Fan Favourite at the Friday Mashup

Hi all, welcome to antoher fabulous Friday Mashup Fan Favourite week...LOL  whew, try saying that fast!

For those new to the FMU challenge, each month with 5 weeks, we run a Fan Favourite competition, our fans enter their ideas, the DT vote on their top 4 or 5 ideas then we put a poll up on the sidebar for a few weeks and the fans vote on their favourite.  That person is then our featured Fan and their idea is the challenge!

Congratulations to Lisa Runyon who suggested this mashup of Fall and Brads, Lisa won the vote and her challenge is being featured this week.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a "Fall themed" Project.
  2. Or Make a Project that uses "Brads".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Fall themed project using Brads".

So here is my effort, I forgot about the brads part of the challenge!  and by the time I remembered I'd already glued down my layers and the glue was dry.  Does anyone else have problems with double sided tape?  doesn't matter what brand I use, I live in a high humidity area and the tapes do not have staying power at all so I stick with glue....LOL Pun intended!

I've used the leaf from Lovely as a Tree and clear embossed on Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler to create my pile of leaves.  I also created the textured sidepanel with the same colours and little squares glued down then ran the Always Artichoke piece through the Big Shot to put the texture in there, I also used some of the stunning Cherry Cobbler seam binding to create this ruffle down the strip, the end had frayed a bit and I left it as I quite liked the look.

Now head on over to the Friday Mashup site, unless you've just come from there, check out what the talented Design Team ladies have created for your inspiration Oh and the Fan Favourites card as well.
