High Hopes Challenge #43

Hello everyone;
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was very busy even with the extra day off.
I'm so happy to see the High Hopes Challenge is back in full swing, I was starting to have!!

The challenge this week is brought to us by Michelle and she has chosen "Fall into Autumn".

I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I stamped the boy twice and cut him out. I stamped, coloured and cut out the leaves for the border and inside the wheel barrow. I layered the leaves in the wheel barrow and popped up the little boy on top of the leaves. I also used the leaf stamp with Perfect Medium for the frame. The green behind the frame was embossed with a CB folder. The DP is from Darcie's. I painted the back of the dew drops with acrylic paint to match the dots on the paper. I also added a some stickles.

I hope you like it....Thanks so much for stopping by
