Fall Fun for Scrapbook USA Expo

Hello my friends! I hope you enjoyed the Scrapbook USA Expo Design Team blog hop- we have some very talented ladies on our team, right?? Make sure you head over to join up with our 'thankful' linky party! Just link up any project with a 'thankful' theme and you could win a Basic Grey card kit!!
Well, today I am back to share another Fall project with you, again using the awesome DCWV Halloween and Fall stack. I hope you have been able to see how fun and versatile it is! Here is my layout:
For the background paper- I loved this subtle patterned paper, but thought it was just a little too thin to hold up all my layers, photos and embellishments on its own, so I just glued it to a heavier piece of kraft cardstock.
There were some great matching stickers and other embellishments that coordinated perfectly with these papers. I also created some of my own. For these fall leaves, I cut the shapes on my cricut on Kraft cardstock and then used Copic markers to color them in. I tried not to be even with the coloring so you could see some darker and lighter areas like you would on a real leaf. I popped one up on a foam dot to give some added dimension.
I cut the title using some paper from the stack, and some matching cardstock. I added some additional kraft leaves popped up on foam as well.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Thanks for stopping by!
