  1. The ideas for the Borders are so pretty with the Fall colors, and the card is beautiful. Thank you for all you do to keep us all on the creative mindset, and showing us different ways that we can make the borders for our layouts, I believe that the BMC is one of my favorite tools that Creative Memories have designed and developed. Here are some more suggestions – a Cornucopia, a sleigh. I do know you had a Gingerbread man or lady out awhile ago (several years) why not bring back some of the older ones? Even the plain
    pine trees? Thank you for all that you all do.
