Happy Fall Ya'll!!! Cameo Creations Challenge

November is here and Thanksgiving is just around the corner! It is my favorite American holiday and I love to celebrate it.

Since my mother-in-law's passing three years ago, we decided to host Thanksgiving for our friends, the ones we love most and are part of our adopted family. Last year I was pregnant and we went low key but this year we are ready to party. We will have 15 adults and 5 children, I love it!

For this challenge, I decided to do a bit of everything. I wanted to do print and cut because I got a new printer, the Canon Pro100. It is ginormous and I am in love with the quality too. I can't wait to print on regular cardstock! This time I used the photo paper that came with my printer, which I got on Craigslit for $100 and it was brand-spanking-new!

I used 13x19 A3 Semi Gloss Photo Paper, which I cut on my 12x24 eclips mat. I didn't even have to trim the extra inch, it fit in the Cameo.

Originally, I was going to make a 30 Days of Gratitude but I had some technical difficulties along with extreme fatigue, I was running low on energy last night.

I didn't use the envelopes I printed (top pic)  but I love the quotes so much that I decided to give them to my guests. I cut some envelopes from a file I had in my library and it worked perfectly!

Here is the envelope and the quote. The sentiment on the envelope and leave was done on vinyl.

For the candle, I sprayed adhesive and rolled it on glitter. Super easy to add some sparkly to a plain candle.

Now I would like to invite you to join us in this challenge, you have to create a new Fall inspired project and submit the link to the Cameo Creations blog. For this challenge we will be giving away a $15 gift certificate to Kadoodlebug Designs.

I can't wait to see your projects! Have a wonderful week :)
