 I decided to do a fall shadow box to show all the things I love about fall. I bought the little wooden box at the Dollar Tree and painted each section using acrylic paint in soft brown colors. I used a gold acrylic paint around the outside frame sections.
 I cut the word out on my Cricut Express and I sprayed Starfish colored Glimmer Mist on the background before gluing the letters down.
 I made an SVG file for this and cut it. I added some glitter to the apple by the basket.
 This was part of a pack of stickers I bought at A.C. Moores. I added Glossy Accents and Stickles glitter to it to give it some texture and shine.
 These two 3D stickers came the way you see them. I just adhered them to the box area.
 More from a sticker pack but I added Stickles glitter and Liquid Pearls to some of the leaves.
 I cut these little leaves out on my Cricut using one of my cartridges but I can't remember which one. I cut them about a 1/2 inch each in size. I then went back and added Glossy Accents to some and bent them in different shapes while they were drying. Other leaves, I added glitter glue and Stickles glitter too.
My wagon and pumpkin come from sticker packs but again I put some pizzaz to them by using my Glossy Accents and Stickles glitter.

Blog Candy Alert: I have a pack of distress Stickles in colors blue, orange and green to give away to those who become followers of mine and leave me a message today and tomorrow. If you're already a follower, just let me know in your comment and please, please, please leave me an email addy so I can contact you if you win. THANKS!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for hoping along with us these past two days. Happy fall ya'll!
