Falling For Fall

Hello and Happy Sunday! It is still feeling like the middle of summer here in New England. The weatherman says that it is only a day or 2 more but I have to say I'll believe it when I see it! At least I am still wearing flip flops which makes me happy.
This is my last week as a guest DT at StempelTräume Challenge Bog. I have really enjoyed playing along with them this month so thank you very much for inviting me. I am sure I will be popping over to play along for more of their fun challenges. This week their challenge is STRIPES.
I used some new DP that I had just bought because of the colors. I also attempted to make a leaf swag like I saw at my local Michaels. My pic looks like I need more color on the swag but IRL the Creamy Caramel and Pear Pizzazz inks are darker and brighter so it looks more colorful than in the pic. Sometimes the camera just won't cooperate with me! Also the whole think is sprinkled with Stickles for lots of sparkle on the swag.
