Cutest Pumpkin . . .

Today's diecut challenge from SOUS is to use pumpkin or vegetable.  Well . . . I used pumpkins!!!

By the way, I LOVE being on the SOUS diecut team.  It's suits me very well.  I get to play with die cuts (which I love) AND make layouts, which I prefer over cards.  Not that I'm giving up on cards, but lay outs are my first and favorite passion.

I've dabbled in watercolor pencils, stamping, embossing, and even drawing and painting.  But I truly LOVE working with paper.  I have not gotten bored with making "die cuts" or even paper flowers.

There are many times in this hobby that I'll make a LO and think "it's cute . . . it's alright . . . it'll do".  I'm not particularly in love with what I've done, but I just don't know how to fix it.  Maybe I picked the wrong paper or picture?  Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood to really blend it all together?  Who knows, right?

But there are other times that I've fall in love with this hobby all over again. Everything comes together and just looks so fabulous, adorable, or just cute!!

That's how I feel about this layout . . . I just love it and hope it inspires you in some way.

I couldn't find the right 3 picture sketch so I just made one myself.   Many years of scrapbooking have taught me numerous things, including "if you can't find it, make it yourself!"

Many die cut layers here.  I also added some store bought wood die cuts.  The number 4 symbolizes my son's age.  The faces are from Peach Keen Stamps.
