Happy Fall Y'all - Completed Layout

I designed this layout back in September and posted it and cut it when I was doing my first review for the Cricut Explore but I never got around to finishing it up and posting it so thought I would get that done today.

I ended up using some Thanksgiving pictures from 2012 that I hadn't scrapbooked. I find it very hard to make a layout and then find pictures to use since I tend to design around the pictures. 

The maple leaves were done with punches that I have and I always like using punches so I can use up small bits of paper I have.  As you can see I pop dotted the head and wing and then the nose on the crow because of my issue of wanting dimension. The flourish on the pumpkin is what I focused on in my review because of the intricacy and size and it really did cut well. 

Here is the other crow and I realized when I was putting the layout together that I didn't resize the images as big as I wanted them but have learned to now leave my base layer in my layout design for import because I can just resize the whole design to 12x12 and get the true sizes I am wanting in the Design Space software.
