Is it really October already?  Since I'm *trying* to stay a month ahead on project, it should be no suprise that even though we'll be eating TONS of candy for Halloween, all projects will be about giving thanks, fall, and harvest.

I. Am. In. Love.

This is probably one of the easiest cards to create.

To get the cool look of the leaves, separate 1 leaf.  How do you do that?  Smash, crinkle, and crumple your paper.  You'll notice that the edges of your leave are starting to separate and peel apart from each other.  Slowly peel the papers apart to get 2 leaves.  Squish/fold the middle of the leave so it gives it a little more dimension and helps it to pop off the page.  Glue dots and dimensionals on the back will help your leaf stay put.
