Challenge #7: Leaves

Autumn is officially here! I love crisp, fall mornings!!

For this challenge I want you to include atleast one leaf in your layout or card. It can be in the picture(s) themselves or used as part of the embellishments. Digital and paper girls are both welcome! I have something special as a prize for this challenge. Wink Each layout is worth 2 entries, each card is worth 1. Enter as many times as you'd like. This can be combined with any of the other challenges. Post layout here by Monday at midnight to be entered into drawing.

I have something planned for this one. I just need to pick up my prints from the 1 hour place in a bit.

I'm ordering pictures right now ... I got the paper all picked out, opened my photo file, and realized the ones I thought I had printed I haven't. So must get them tomorrow for this challenge. Wink

Lena - love it!

Here is mine. I had fun with my copic markers and did the leaves myself since I didn't have any leaf embellishments laying around.

Thank you. The shapes off the leaves I copied from clip art. The coloring is with my Copic markers. They are really good for blending colors but I am just learning how to use them, its pretty complicated and I don't get it yet. The color blending is extra nice for the colorful fall leaves. Then I cut them out and pop dotted them. They were a lot of work but I didn't have to much to do while I waited for my photos to be developed.

such cool pages!!

Here is mine

This tree is what I see from our living room window every day and I am in love with it. I stare at this tree all the time. Wayne stares at the ones next to it which are pretty boring to me being from Canada but he loves them. Big evergreens or something (I don’t know my trees at all. LOL!)

So soft and sweet Tia! Did you hand-stitch the heart? And what did you use for the leaves? Silk plant? Love that idea!

Gwen, I really love that paper! Where did you get it? I love how you stuck single pics of Jordan and Andrew on the left, then group shots on the right.

Beckie, such a precious memory to scrap...love it!

Trina, "AMAZING"! Smile

Gwen...LOVE this! You are on a roll! The papers really go together well and all the colors complement..something I can NEVER seem to do with paper like that. GREAT job!!

Beckie...yours is so simple yet so neat.

Trina...yours is awesome!! Love the color combo of pink and red. Good job!

I got the papers (the two patterns anyway) in a pack from the dollar spot at Target last year. The solids are just from my stash. I'm really happy at how it came together. Smile

Trina - I'm loving this one from you!

Trina- I love your layout and how you did the title "a-maze-ment" as it fits the corn maze adventure you guys went on! Awesome! I love "corny" stuff like that. ROFL

Shannon! That's sooo neat! I really love how you shaped the pictures as leaves. That looks like so much fun by the way! I don't get leaf piles where I live, i miss the little things from back home... but they can keep old man winter! Wink

Thanks ladies! I love the look of the pictures being shapes, but I don't do it enough.

I printed leaf templates that I found on google:)
