Papercraft Star 13

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

Welcome to Papercraft Star Challenge 13 !

Our sketch today lends itself more completely to a scrapbook layout, but since I don't do those, I have made a card based on part of that sketch.

I truly love the fall, but I think I say that a lot.

About the end of Sept. we will put up one of our Christmas trees, only of course, it is called a "fall tree". It is lit, and has lots of sparkley leaves and autumn things. Dom loves it - he always says it is his most favorite tree of the fall/Christmas season(s).
Hey we have plenty more trees with a Christmas theme...)

I cannot wait for fall to begin, so I made a little fall card today.
When I lived in the midwest I always hated fall, as winter was so brutal, and I knew it was about to sink in. But here, it just means a lot of cloudy and rainy days.

We only live a mile from Autzen Stadium, the home of the University of Oregon Ducks, and Saturdays we don't even have to have a radio on - we can hear the whole football game in our house. I think ESPN called it the loudest stadium in the country.
Just hearing that sound reminds me of all the years I spent crafting for Christmas, all through the fall.

Ok, enuff of my fall ♥♥♥♥♥♥.
