My Dear Scrappy Friends!!  It’s so good to be able to share some fun ideas with you today.  This is a layout of my little niece’s son at his first Pumpkin Patch visit.  He is the cutest little guy!!!!!  It helps that Dani is such an amazing photographer!!  Hope you enjoy!!

The paper collection that I used is the Autumn Splendor by Simple Stories.  It is hands down “Autumnal” perfection.  I chose the chipboard piece Fall Frame to use for the focus of the layout.  I painted it with acrylic paint and then rubbed it with acrylic glaze.  Yummy finish that blended really well with the leaves of the paper designs.

Here’s another photo of the bottom half of the layout.

I also LOVE pumpkins, both to eat, carve and to use in design.  They are such a happy color, so warm.  I used the Pumpkins which comes in a set of three.  I used 2 on this layout as I must of used one in another layout.  I used a couple different orange acrylic paints and blended them to get some shading.

I love Fall and especially Harvest and Thanksgiving.  We have snow on the ground already, so I think it’s going to be a snowy year in Anchorage.  Stay warm, safe and healthy.  Here’s a Big Alaska Bear Hug from the Far North!!!
