Cornucopia of Colors

Share
I know it's not the 1st yet, but I just couldn't wait... I LOVE the Fall! I love the crisp autumn air, the crunch of the leaves under my feet, breaking out the hot cocoa for the first time, and the temperature I affectionately call "sweater weather". But the best part of this time of year is when the stores start breaking out their "seasonal" decorations.. I'm not talking Christmas, here, I'm talking pumpkin scented candles, and woody place mats with leaf-shaped napkin rings... [I'm a closet household goods fanatic.]

Although all of these wonderful things aren't quite here in real life, I can sort of live them vicariously through this new great kit. It's part of the ADSDesigners' September Collab, and it's really fun! I tried to incorporate all the wonderful things I love about this season - the warmth and rich textures specifically - into the kit. It's not quite as large as Alphabet Soup, but I think I've learned a lot since then, and it's definitely my best so far. I've also started using a lot of CU items - why try to re-invent the wheel when someone greater than me already did - which I think has lent to greater variety in my designs. So if you would be so kind, please click on the ads throughout my blog and help keep that variety coming! ;)

Anyway, that was a LOT of chatting - especially for me - so on to the goods! I've linked everything individually, so you can pick and choose if you want, but the full kit is linked as well. *password is corn* FYI: The full kit download is only available as a RAR, and it's 99 MB (compressed), so you might want to break it down anyway. Don't worry if you can't grab everything at once; I'll keep this kit as a freebie for the whole month of September.

This kit has been retired..












And now that you've snagged what you wanted from me, don't forget to check out all of the other great participants! Although we all used the same color swatch and general theme, we each came up with something a little different, so you won't want to miss out on any one of them. And remember, these ladies worked hard and would really appreciate a little appreciation. ;)

So excited about this kit! Especially the alphabet. I can't get enough of a good alphabet! Sorry i haven't sent you anything yet, I am waiting for my husband to show me where he stashed the PDF printer. Anyway, hopefully I will get the LO's to you soon. There is only two though :(

Nice work. I came across your blog while blog surfing using the “next blog” button on the Nav Bar of blogger.com. I am continually fascinated by the types of blogs that exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people all over the globe express themselves. Thanks for sharing.

My blog is dedicated simply to making people think differently about societal issues. As I often tell people, instead of encouraging people to believe that there are 2 or 3 ways to look at something, I want them to realize that there are at least 27. Hopefully such an approach will result in more creative, innovative solutions to societal ills. Have a visit should you like, and subscribe for updates should you like the substance:
