Polka Doodles......

Morning peeps, I've been away for a couple of days to North Wales, my hubbys Brother and wife live in Barmouth and we've never got round to visiting them there, that is until Wednesday. Now I used to go to Wales an awful lot as a child, as my parents had a caravan there for many years and I seem to only ever remember the rain although the sun did shine from time to time. Well when we got there it was lovely and warm and we sat out in the garden looking over the wall to the beach and sea. I have never eaten sooooo much food Bara Brith, chicken stew, Lemon meringue pie and then a little while after that fish and chips, I had to pass on the pudding this time as we were totally stuffed good job we had a long walk on the beach later.We then watched Avatar on their new 10 foot screen ......yep that's right a 10 foot cine screen and projector, so guess who has been going on about getting one of these now......yes you guessed......hubby and son. We hadn't booked a hotel but after being introduced to Eric a very friendly hotelier he found us a room with a gorgeous view of the sea and beach, he looked after us so well and the next morning we had a full English breakfast and was totally stuffed again. After breakfast we drove to Porthmadog and went on The Ffestiniog Steam Railway......my son is a train addict, the weather was gorgeous again, in fact it was 30 degrees.......1st of September, amazin'.....oh well enough of my mini holiday on to todays card.
Todays challenge at Polka Doodles is 'Autumn Leaves', as soon as I found out for this challenge I just knew I wanted to make a wreathe, so I cut out quite a few leaves (which are from Sundae of Seasons CD) to create todays card and then added a smidge of glitter stickles to the edges for bling.

 the papers and borders are also from the same CD,
the buttons I made using the Die-namics button die in the same background paper.

Challenges
Stamps and fun=Creativity.......dots and stripes.
Top Tip.......Shabby Chic.
Just for Fun......say it with words.
Crafty Creations......use 3 or more dies(buttons, scalloped and stitched circle)
Craft us crazy......Autumn colours 
Hugs n Smiles
