Happy Fall Y'all!

Here is my card from the Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge. Now, I know the toilet paper is freaking you guys out, but it seriously fun and seriously funny. I was laughing so hard as I walked into my bathroom to pull off a few sheets. Yes, I am admitting that toilet humor makes me laugh. What can I say? I'm five. Haha!
So anyways, I wanted to give you guys a few ideas of ways to use toilet paper. Here I used my cuttlebug and dies to cut the leaves and inked them with my foam inking tool and Distress Inks. They turned out so delicate and cool! Another idea could be to make paper mache, or use mod podge, or use the TP to stamp something, or anything else! Go crazy! Go wild! Try something you haven't before. You may end up with toilet paper mod podged to your finger nails permanently, but trust me, it's worth it!
I used my distresser again! It's so fun! It feels like I am getting my aggression out or something! I held down my TP leaves with glue dots. It worked pretty well!
I am going to do a tutorial on my TP pumpkin this week, so keep a look out for it, and also play along with us at Everything but the Kitchen Sink! Get out your TP and you'll have fun, I promise! :)
