Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Pumpkin of possibilities / PS Challenge!

Hello everyone! This lo is of my dd when she was about 2 years old...My mom, sister, hubby, nephew, niece, daughter and myself went to Trax farm. She had a blast trying to pick the perfect pumpkin. She sat on these pumpkins and so I took her pic. Look at all the pumpkins to choose from.

I made this lo for the Pratical scrappers challenge. They want you to use pattern paper. I used 3 of them. Go check them out...

I used the leaf border (at the bottom from a fall stack ) cut the leaf part out of the dcwv fall stack and placed it ontop of another pattern paper as a border.

I then used a pattern paper (all from the dcwv fall stack) (I think it was from that or from the debbie mumm paper, well can't remember) under the pic and used my zigzag sizzors....

I Used SYI for the tree cut @ 10", pumpkins cut @ 2 and 2 1/2"

Used ACY for the leaves cut @ 2"

I used George for part of the title "OF" cut @ .3/4" and then for the Tag cut @ 2"

The oval was also from george, don't remember size.

I doodled, added stickers for the word "PUMPKIN" in the title, I added ribbon to tag and staple, Added raffia to make a corn stalk and then tied with rope. Added a little tiny mouse, look closely and you will see him hiding in the pumpkins. I used burlap and I think that is all....thanks for stopping by. God bless everyone!
