Happy Monday Everyone.  It's Laurie from Creations by Laurie - welajo from the Cricut message boards with a fall inspired card for you.  With fall just around the corner, the nights are already getting cooler here in Colorado and I've noticed the trees starting to change.

This project is inspired by all the things I love about fall, the colors, the crisp air and the crunch of leaves under my feet.

I layered several leaves to create a "pile" under the tree
