Something Old to Something New

I was walking through the park and noticed that the leaves were already falling from the trees!
I thought it would be fun to make something new from the dead leaves so I pulled out my heart punch,

and cut out lots of little heart shaped leaves.

I sprinkled them on the ground,
and made cute heart shaped vines!

I blended them in with real vines growing up my building for a little touch of whimsy.

I don't know exactly why but somehow it bothers me to cut into green leaves.. as if they were alive.
Excuse my craziness, it is a lovely thought.

With the exception of 'anonymous', the number of followers and responses to your sight is an indication of how much joy you bring. Your the kind of friend I like hanging with even if just on a blog site.

Thanks for sharing your joy.
