TWO MORE FOR YA!
Hi all!! Sorry about yesterday - I ended up spending the day doing some Christmas shopping to deflect some of the stress of all the moving and the house delays, etc. I had a great day (a little lonely though) shopping for my kids and nieces and nephews. So, here are the next two pages for you! The first one shows all the kids sitting in the pumpkin patch with their pumpkins that they decided they wanted to take home to carve. My son of course had to have the biggest one out there!! The second one shows my MIL with my little niece carving her very first pumpkin. Kirsten was very interested in how it was going to turn out and did not leave her MeMaws side until it was finished and all lit up! These pages were very simple to put together. I used pumpkin pie CS and then backed the pics in garden green and creamy caramel I rounded the corners on one of the pics and then used pumpkin die cuts popped up on dimensionals for my journaling. I wrote all my journaling by hand because I wanted this book to feel very personal for her. I on the pumpkin patch page, I added quite a bit of ribbon (May Arts) to bring out the green and then used some cardstock embellishments. (I don't have my stuff so I used a LOT of non-SU stuff). I also used some Halloween DP on both pages and added some black rick rack to the bottom of the second page to add some dimension. I also used my punch with some black brads to give it a little pop. All in all, I was very pleased with how these pages turned out. Hope you like them!!
