PTI September Blog Hop

It's Blog Hop time at PTI!
And our challenge is this beautiful fall photo:

A long post, so grab your cup of choice and settle in
for a bit, all supplies at the end so you can
hop along.

Trying not to overuse this stamp, but it's so darn cute,
and it seemed a perfect fit for the challenge colors.

That 'happy' just makes me happy!

Sweet Blush a fall color? But it works with Autumn Rose and Smokey Shadow!

Did this tag, then did a few more getting simpler each time.

Recognize the pumpkin from Scentamentals?

OK, that bucket of rosy berries? Had to do one with 
the Botanical stamp!

Just one more,

Hard to see, but Winterberry has glossy accents, then glitter,
which tweaked the blush, but I rather liked the contrast.

Too busy? Almost didn't add it, but it's fun to see 'over-the-tops' too!

Listing supplies if you'd like them.
Can't wait to see all the creativity on Nichole's blog!

Enjoy the hop!
