Autumn Banner!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALAKAI!!!! WE LOVE YOU! It's our Godson's 1st birthday today and I can't wait to get back and celebrate him in style!
I have to say that I don’t make a home decor project unless I intend on putting it up in our home. However, with 450 square feet total (we live in a studio in San Francisco), my wall space is precious and whatever I put up everyone sees. I actually have already hung this up and am very excited about it.
Originally I had planned on hanging it left to right and putting it on the front door. However, I was video chatting with my best friend’s Kourtni and Phil and Phil said, “that is going to look great straight up and down.” (I showed it to him before I added the ribbon when the leaves were just laying on the table) I thought that was a FABULOUS idea so the creative genius to hang it straight up and down entirely belongs to Mr. Phil! Thanks, friend! 
I have to tell you, the success of this project was based on the awesomeness of Glue Arts. I put all the leaves together in a jiffy with the Perma-Tac Glue Glider Pro and then used their Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares™ and put ONE square on the ribbon and pressed the leaf down into it. Those leaves aren’t going anywhere. They really have made some amazing products. 

And, I wasn't sure what I thought about the Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg line, but when it is all together, how cute is it!?! 
Cartridges: Designer’s Calendar™ (leaves), Cake Basics™ (letters)
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg Collection: “Cinnamon” (red with spots and salmon color), “Autumn” (red wood grain + letters), “Acorn” (green leaves and blue shadow), “Maple” (brown woodgrain), “Falling Down” (stripes)
SORRY! Out for publication!
