It's Autumn For Sure

Happy Hump Day folks!

After an amazing few days last week and a fab weekend that felt more like summer than summer actually did, we are back in the throes of Autumn here in the UK. I am always sad to see the end of summer, but the amazing colours of Autumn never cease to amaze me, every year I feel a true sense of awe and wonder at the array a stunning rich, warm colours. Living on the edge of the New Forest I guess I am spoiled by the sheer volume of colour, but I never take it for granted.

So, onto this week's challenge at FOR FUN...we want to see LEAVES on your projects this week. Gotta be an easy one to get involved in right? Well, if you're not convinced, let me tell you who's sponsoring us this's Di's Digis!
Yay, NOW you're onboard right??!! The winner will receive a super-generous FIVE digis of their choice!
The DT have all used one of her fabby images this week, I chose a real cutie called Windy Play and made a corner bookmark for my daughter who LOVES reading! Here it is:

They are SO easy to make, a piece of card 4"x4", score and fold the top into a chevron then decorate as you choose! I used Autumn colours and added some leaves cut from a DP to decorate. Slide it over the corner of the page you want to save like this:
I am entering my bookmark into the following challenges:
