Apples...plaid...leaves...and Tilda!

Yikes! I can hardly believe that it's the fourth Tuesday of October already!! And, guess what? It's time for another fabulous "Inspiration Challenge" at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Once again, the sweet and talented Candy is our hostess...and she's given us this gorgeous photo to use as inspiration...


Isn't this the coolest photo??! I couldn't quite decide which way to go with this month's "Inspiration Challenge" project. Do I go with plaid? Fall? Leaves? Rakes? Boots? Barns? So many choices...and so litttle time! LOL!! Soooo, I decided to make another cute little "clean & simple" altered notebook...and went with plaid and fall!


This little cutie patootie is "Apple Tilda"...she's so dang cute, don'tcha think?! (I know, I know...I say that about ALL of my Maggies!! hehehe!) She's available as a "mini" at Magnolia-licious online store HERE! Here's another view...


Fall...and leaves...and apples...and warm apple cider!! That's the feel I was going for....


And my simple little "Recipe"...
Small notebook (just $1.00 from my local craft store)
Roses, leaves, & metal filagree corner: Wild Orchid Crafts
Copper Stickles
Sentiment, charm, ribbon, & gold beads: my stash
Glossy accents applied to the apples
Copics  & Prismacolor pencils

And one last "artsy" view... 


Alrighty roo...it's time for you to visit Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see what my talented DT sistahs have created for your viewing pleasure! Then...please join in the fun by making and entering your own project into this month's Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge. Remember, one lucky participant (selected at random, of course) will win a $25.00 gift voucher for a Magnolia-licious Shopping Spree!! Whooohooo!!

And...that's it for me!! Thanks so much for visiting...and for always leaving such sweet comments! I really, really appreciate you!! Now...off you go...let the craftin' begin!! Great big "Maggie" hugsssssssssss...until next time!

I'm glad you didn't give Tilda a rake, she might come after me! LOL.
