Frosted Designs Fall Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Frosted Designs Fall Blog Hop!!
You should have arrived here from Diana's blog. If you get lost along the way, head back  to
Frosted Designs for the full list.
This is a Recipe Challenge Blog Hop - Now what does that mean??  
We have an overall Theme of "Fall" and the RECIPE can be found along the way.  Each Designer is using one "ingredient" on their project.  There are 12 stops on the hop, which makes 12 Ingredients.  You choose 6 of the 12 ingredients to create your "Fall" project and link it up to the Frosted Designs BLOG.  My  ingredient is STAMPING.
To highlight the picture on my layout I machine stitched a few circles around it and also added some stitching around the edges of the layout to act as a frame.  I am entering this layout in the  Stitching & Sewing Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

I chose to do a little background stamping on my layout after adding some gesso:
and also used a tag, envelope and ticket from my stash that includes stamping:
and here I have a beautiful  cluster of embellishments that include some Purple Pumpkin goodies!
We have some awesome sponsors for our hop:
Boys Rule Kits

I am also offering a chance to win my RAK:
 Become a follower and leave me a comment. . If you are already a follower, then  leave me a comment  and let me know.  Create a project for our Recipe challenge using stamping as one of your ingredients and come back and leave me a comment for another chance to win my RAK.  I'll announce the winner of my RAK on Thursday, November 15.

 Your next stop along the blog hop is Lori M.
You have until midnight (cst) Wednesday November 14th to link up your project on the Frosted Designs Blog.

Have fun and thanks for stopping by!
. . . Debbie
