Cut It Up Johnny Appleseed Challenge


I think one of the things you think about when fall rolls around, besides pumpkin spice everything, is apples.

We have a place, not to far away, called Apple Hill.  They grow lots of different kinds of apples and every year in the fall they have a festival. You can drive to all the different growers and purchase all kinds of yummy things made with apples! Of course, you can purchase the apples themselves too.


This week we are celebrating the good ole apple.



Our challenge over at Cut It Up is "Johnny Appleseed", create a project using apples, and don't forget the die cut!

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Pink and Main you have a chance to win a $20 certificate for their store.

Cute gift for your favorite teacher!!!
