To mark the beginning of Fall, I have designed a new kit in my Fairy Dreams Collection: Fairy Dreams in the Fall. This kit is full of beautiful papers, glorious autumn leaves and plenty of fun elements to play with, like the cute wooden squirrel, patchwork pumpkin, glowing pixie stamp and two handmade fairies!
Great news for Taggers this kit is also available in Tagger Size (72dpi)
The kit contains 10 papers, 30 elements and 4 brushes/stamps (saved as png & abr)
Here's a Preview of the kits and the Papers, click on the previews to enlarge:

And just check out these beautiful layouts that have been made with the kit:

Thanks to Darlene, Natalie, Margie, Netty, Lisa and Enigmaz for letting me post their layouts & tags here.
