PTI September Blog Hop Challenge

Love the results of Faux Chalk Art when combined with the right colors and sentiment. Betsy Veldman is the queen of this technique and showed how to do this in a video for Make It Monday #98. This month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge on Nichole's blog here is to incorporate fall colors and images surrounding our faux chalkboard as shown in the beautiful photo below.
