hello fall

Hello, hello!  Happy September to you!
We have a new challenge up at Challenge YOUrself and it's all about the fall season. What is your favorite thing about fall?  The colors?  The smells?  The kids going back to school?  We want you to tell us about it!  Mine is TV!!  My shows start back up!  Yayy!  I just love that about fall.

Ah yes, all wrapped up in a cozy blanket, sitting comfy on my couch, sipping on a warm drink as I watch my most awaited TV shows!  Love it!

When I think fall I think colorful leaves so I was determined to make a fall tree out of my Donna Downey stamp.  I've had this stamp stashed for too long and finally got it out.  I only used the bark area so I could jazz up the leaves to give it some color and character.  I had a few different ideas on how to make them but I decided on the buttons since I have tons of them and was able to use up some of my stash.  The background paper is by Webster's pages.  I thought it was fitting, like I am sitting inside watching TV.  If you look closely, you'll see I listed my most favorite shows.  Ohh I'm so excited to have my programs starting back up!

Here are a few close ups for better detail.

Ok, now it's your turn!  What is your most favorite thing about fall?  We all have that one thing.  Be creative and have fun with it.  Be sure to link up by October 5 for your chance to win a great prize.  Stop by Challenge YOUrself for all the details and for tons of inspiration along with ideas!

Thanks for much for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!
