Fall Splendor

I LOVE this Sizzix Caddy die created by Eileen Hull!  There are soooooooo many possibilities for this die but I wanted to use it in a totally different way than what it was intended for.  While looking for a fall wreath to put on my door, my mind began churning.  I didn't have one yet sooooo the "Fall Splendor" wreath became reality.  And what a LOVELY accent for my front door!

Each of the little caddies are spilling over with little pine cones, bits & pieces of fall flowers and little berries.  I bought a bundle of fall flowers and a grapevine wreath and wha la, the Fall Splendor wreath was created.

To see what the other fantastic designers came up with using this little caddy, click on the little button on the sidebar to the right "Sizzix's Fresh Vintage".  By clicking on this button it will let you "hop" forward.  The inspiration alone is well worth the look!

What a cute idea, and such a nice mix of seasonal elements (and the webbing adds both texture and a little Halloween atmosphere!)
