Pumpkin People!


I haven't created any scrapbook layouts for such a long time but I thoroughly enjoyed making 3 last Friday when Lynsey came for the day. It is so different to cardmaking and lovely to make something for myself. We love New England and one of the fun things to do in New Hampshire in October is to follow the trail and find the pumpkin people. This is just one of the many displays. I used some papers from my stash with a GO Kreate die and aTim Holtz die for the leaves, The pumpkins, spotted shape and pumpkin pie diecuts are from a set I bought in America. I also added some burlap and felt letters for added texture.

What a truly wonderful layout you've created! I love all of those fabulous fall colors and really liked how you incorporated so many fantastic curved shapes with your background pieces and journal piece. So clever to tie in the piece of pumpkin pie, too! This made me smile and want to go buy a pumpkin! Thanks so much for sharing this lovely piece with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
