Fall Leaves . . .

I think I have mentioned many, many times before that fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The beautiful colors, the crispness of the air, apple season, soup, Halloween . . . there are just so many things I love about it. I go through so much chocolate chip paper this time of year!!

I made this card for the color challenge on SCS earlier this week . . . CC186. I am really beginning to like Baja Breeze. Wasn't so jazzed about it initially, but I think the fact that it is fitting in so nicely with fall colors is really helping me out!! And these big ol' leaves just make me want to run through a BIG pile of leaves, kicking them up as I go (I NEVER get tired of doing that!!)! Sigh . . . soon it will be time to rake!!
