By The Cute and Girly here we go!!

It's the launch day today of the brand new multi craft challenge blog By The Cute and Girly!
This challenge blog is different from the others as it allows you free reign to do whatever crafty/arty thing you like!
So if you want to paint a picture, bake a pie or knit a sweater then go ahead! You could arrange some flowers, decorate a room or make a card! LOL
I'm so looking forward to seeing my favorite bloggers showing off their other crafty skills and it gives me a nice "breather" from my paper crafts.
There are superb projects over there and you are bound to be inspired.
The challenge is once a month and the 1st challenge is "Autumn Glory".
I decided to take the floral route and make a new wreath for my front door.
I headed to Hobby Lobby an grabbed a grapevine wreath. Then I chose Sunflowers as the predominent flower. I then went to the "picks" department and found mini pumpkins, frosted berries, fancy fruits and more! I also found a wonderful Fall ribbon to go around the grapevine under the flowers, you can't see it very well in the photos but it adds a nice touch.

Here's a close up of the scarecrow that Carter chose especially for this project.

Here's anotherclose up of the great goodies nestled in the wreath.
I hope it brings a little sunshine into your day and I'd love to see you over at the challenge showing me your super crafts!
