Hexagons are IN, and so is my Fashionista....

This is my last month on the SEI DT.  :(  Honestly honestly, the latest releases are SOOO much better in person.  When I got the Homestead collection, I was in love with the color combos.  The patterns on the paper are amazing, too! 

So being the "trendy" person that I am (insert eye roll here), I decided to do a little work with some hexagons that I cut on my Cricut using SCAL, and this is the result:

I misted the page a little with some browns and whites, and then stamped with a NEW Stampn' Up stamp that I just the woodgrain.  I laid out my hexagons where I wanted them and glued 'em down.  Then I puched holes with a paper piercer and hand I don't measure and YES it took forever. 

This line has a page of perforated strips with fall and autumn phrases on it, and this one just captured the moment perfectly, so I used it for my title.

The leaves come in the die cut pack and I inked them up and folded them up a bit for some dimension.  This is one of my most favorite pages that I have done for SEI!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!  :)

And of course it's THURSDAY so that means a Sketchy Thursday reveal! This is a special week at ST because it is the first sketch for the new team!  EVERYONE had created a page this week, so go check it out on the ST blog and be sure to create a project and upload for the weekly prize!

Here is this weeks sketch:

 One of my other favorite lines right now is Random by Crate Paper.  Love the denim print and since this page was about my sweet little one playing dress up, I had to use it!

Charlotte is getting a lot more brave with the items she is choosing from my closet to wear!  It's not just flip flops and tank tops anymore (although that's all mommy wears these days while nursing a 3 month old!)

For some reason I didn't take any close up shots of this page, so it's gonna have to stand on it's own for now!  :)  I misted the background with white Studio Calico sprays and then focused on the yellow pink and blue colors.

I've got a lot going on this week!  Have been super busy working on a ton of projects which I can't wait to share!
