Happy Thanksgiving - Taylored Expressions! 8-)

Hi all! And a Very Happy Friday to you!! Hope you all had a Super week! Well, today Im back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Adorable We Give Thanks Stamp set Along with TE's Fab Mega Leaves Dies too!... ;-) I SOOO Love Fall and really miss the beautiful change of the leaves since moving down here to So-Cal... So I decided to create my own... ;-)
I created my Fabulous Fall leaves with TE's Mega Leaves Dies, TE's Choice Watercolor CS, my Super Fun Distress Markers and a few spritzes of Ink Potion #9 for good measure & to crete that Awesome watercolory look too... 8-)
My mats and BG layers were created with TE's Choice Buttercream CS, TE's Choice Kraft CS, my wood grain EF, a bit of shading with Vintage Photo Distress ink and a spritz or two with my Studio Calico mister just for fun... 8-)
And to finish them all up, I popped up my leaves with a bit of foam tape and stamped my We Give Thanks Sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa onto a strip of shaded Choice Kraft... Pretty easy peasy, huh?... 8-) 

Here are the items I used for my project today...

Hope you all have a Super day & Thanks so much for stopping in! 8-)
