  69. I really like this oak leaf combination that you have created. And they are the best kind of leaves, the kind you can scoop up and not have to rake them and dispose of! The blue background is so pretty and I like how it really makes the cool oak leaves POP off the background! Looking forward to your video! Cheers!
