Have an OWLSOME Fall Y'all Blog Hop!

Welcome to Day 2 of the 
Have An Owlsome Fall Y'All 
Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Julie's Blog, then you are on track!

 We are so happy to have you join us today!

This is a 2 day hop and the line up will be different each day.

 Our first "Well Owl Be" Blog Hop went over so well,
we decided to do an owl themed hop 4 times a year!
Our next hop will be right before Christmas and
we hope you will come back and join us then, too!
One grand prize winner will win a Cricut cartridge and
a stamp set sponsored by Erica's Craft Room!
Thank you, Erica, you are so generous!
Please be a follower and leave a comment at all of the stops in the hop for the chance to win.
There will also be other blog candy along the way!

I wanted to do something a little different this time around,
and when I happened upon a scrawny little wreath at the Target dollar spot
I knew I had my project!

The owl is a pattern that I got from here.
Print, cut, emboss, piece, and done!
Isn't it cute?

A couple of flowers using Spellbinders Rose Creations
and Spiral Blossom One on top of some
dollar store fall leaves.

And a few sprigs of berries that I also
picked up for a buck finish it off.
An adorable fall decoration for under $5
that took about 20 minutes to make!

As a thank you for stopping by my blog I'm giving away some fall candy -
All you have to do to win is become a follower (if you aren't already) and leave me a comment.
Comments will remain open until Friday, September 28th
and the winner will be announced Saturday, September 29th.
Good luck!

22 pieces of 6x6 paper, 12 feet of assorted ribbon and 10 Prima leaves.

Now make sure to head over to Erica's Blog next.
