VC Challenge #2 "Pumpkins!!"

Ok, for this challenge, I want you to create a layout or card with a pumpkin anywhere on it. I am going to draw for the winner, but here's the catch....since layouts take longer than cards to make, if you enter a layout, your name goes in twice, if you enter a card, your name goes in once. Smile
I figured this would be a good way to scrapbook those fall photos or Halloween photos. Or create a Thanksgiving page or card!
Layout needs to be posted here by Monday, the 10th at midnight. Also, this needs to be a new creation please.
Here are some pumpkins I created using three ovals and glueing them together.


HAVE FUN!!

Hey Charys! Are digi pages allowed too? I haven't had a chance to develop any fall pictures yet, but I do have them all on my computer.

The only thing I've accomplished for the crop! But I like how it turned out.

Thanks to Charys for the three oval pumpkin design! I couldn't find a pumpkin that fit the style/color pallette of the page, so I made my own by cropping some papers. Smile

Stephanie, great design! That's cool that you carved a pumpkin you GREW! What fun memories

Lisa, the verse you used matches her beautiful smiling face perfectly. Cute layout!

Beth, I love your pumpkin!!! The colors DO match perfectly and the vine you chose is great.

I love all of the pumpkin pages! And using the three ovals for a pumpkin is BRILLIANT! I will have to try that sometime.

Here's my pumpkin page ... I kept it simple, only because the letters and grungeboard ended up being a lot of work. Cut the letters out of chipboard with my cricut, and then used two different stamp inks to color the letters and grungeboard. But the stupid ink STILL isn't all dry, and it's been almost 9 hours. Not good! And I had issues glueing the grungeboard down, and now will have glue marks on the page forever. Any advice on how to disguise that?

Sorry you had troubles Gwen. For around your grungeboard why don't you outline around it with a marker to cover up some of the glue marks?

It's a cute page!

This is a great idddea! You could outline it with dots in black or white.

That is really cute Gwen!! I would take a q-tip and chalk around the edges, to give it a feathering look.

thanks, those are good ideas.

Charys - I don't have any chalks, so that won't be an option. Wink

I'm scared of screwing up with a marker though, due to all of those swirls. But I really need to do something to clean it up. Not sure what color to use ... thinking about a brown similar to the brown mat around Jordan's picture.
