"If I only had a brain"

 Ok, so the title is corny but it's so relative to the most loved scarecrow ever - from the Wizard of Oz.  His witty personality, warm smile and genuine love for Dorothy steals our heart in nearly 3 hours of film.  So, with that warmth in mind I created this scrapbook page layout.
 I stamped the Pumpkin Pie areas with VersaMark ink.  The scarecrow is created from the Top Note die, and, in my opinion, if you're only going to but one Big Shot die, this HAS TO BE the ONE!  There are countless uses for it.  I hand cut the nose, used punches for his eyes and drew on his smile with the Stampin' Write marker. Oh, and I added a touch of the new chalk marker to his eyes for definition.
The second page of this layout includes the title, individually die cut from the Squares Collection Framelits and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  The Autumn Accents Die was used to make all the leaves. I crumbled mine up (because rarely do you find a perfectly flat leaf!) and attached them with Dimensionals.
