This has got to be the prettiest season
in Brown County, IN! The leaves are turning into beautiful reds,
yellows and oranges, the temperatures are cooler, and all the shops
are open in the village of Nashville!
Make sure you take some time to visit Brown County State Park sometime
in October for some jaw-dropping autumn scenery. We don't want you
to miss out on any of the fun, so check out the visitor center's
website to see a full calendar of events, www.browncounty.com.

Thinking, too! Join us for our Monthly Card class on the 2nd Tuesday

Halloween, autumn, and Christmas cards (our Class Schedule is below).

parties! All the information is in this newsletter, so read on!
Since this is our busiest time of the year,

muted tans, browns and yellow flowers & leaves with gold foil
accents! Just add the coordinating flowers and chipboard stickers
to complete your cards or pages. And for those Halloween pumpkin
carving photos, you'll want some of the papers from Reminisce's
collection "Jack's Revenge."
