Fall Blog Hop (plus a chance to win an extra scrappy prize)

Welcome to the Fall Ball Blog Hop, brought to you by the design teams of Made Especially For You and I Heart {ippity}!
Today we're happy to share with you all sorts of fall-themed projects to get you in the mood for a season full of crisp leaves, bountiful pumpkin patches, warm apple cider, and all those other things we love that make fall such a wonderful time of year.
If you've come from Amy's blog, you're in the right place. If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Made Especially For You.
For my project, I created a candy jar!  This is really easy to do ... I just had to save a jar instead of recycling it!
I've used a circle punch and some chipboard pieces from this fall collection to decorate the lid (and conveniently cover up the "best before" date).
I then used some border punches, this cute pumpkin cut-out and some twine and a chipboard button to decorate the body.
I filled it with some delicious malt balls for this picture (no surprise that I've made good use of the candy jar and it now sits empty on my counter :)
As I always do, I'll be giving away a fun prize from my scrappy stash to anyone that leaves me a comment and is following my blog (or becomes a new follower).  Good luck!!!
We also have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment on every stop of the hop!

$20 Gift Certificate

The winners of the blog candy will be announced on Made Especially For You on Tuesday September 18th. Please make sure to leave your contact information when commenting to be eligible to win!
