Trees and Falling Leaves

When my children were young, we had a huge maple tree on our property.  They had a tire swing in that tree and they loved swinging out over the giant pile of leaves that they had raked up and then jumping off into that pile.  Over the 13 years we lived there, we had only one mishap - our youngest son (5 at the time).  He fell instead of jumped and ended up with two broken arms.  That ended his fun for awhile.
It seems I am really into Dearie Doll images right now so here is another one.  Notice he is standing instead of sitting.  Boys!

"Autumn" is an old SU stamp.  It is cut with a Spellbinder tag.  The leaves are cut with an Impression Obsession die.   Dearie Doll digital image is colored with Copics.
