One final stop in the WeScrap forums.

And here’s my Fall Inspired project that I’d like to share with you….

One of my favorite things about Autumn is how the leaves on the trees change colors and fall to the ground. The sounds of the girls laughter as they play amongst the leaves, throwing them in the air.

Here is a layout I created with a tree element. I wanted to make a homemade tree to put on my page. I had this fun picture of Emmy and DD in the leaves. I used this as my inspiration. I grabbed some Co-ordinations paper and sanded it to reveal the tree trunk texture. Next I grabbed some leaves stamps and stamped some leaves on some green paper. I also had a Prima Flower set and cut off the leaves. I popped them up on my tree. I added some glitter to a few of the leaves but, unfortunately, it doesn't show up in this picture.
