One Perfect Autumn Day

I'm making a gift album for my sister-in-law. They're here visiting their daughters. I just loved these pictures of them that I snagged off their Facebook page. I couldn't fit them in with any DT work, so I just decided to go looking for a fun challenge with which to use them. I made this page:


...using this sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. My page looks a little different because I scrap 8 x 8 and the pumpkin was so big that it, along with the photos, covered the width of my page.


Here are a few details. The pumpkin is a Silhouette cut file. I stitched the leaves with my sewing machine to give it a little more interest. The "Autumn" is also a Silhouette cut file. That frame on the picture is actually gold. I hate how metallics are so hard to photograph.


The cool wood background paper is by Chickaniddy. The rest of the papers are pretty old. That green dot is by K&Co, and the brown stripe is by Ki Memories. The orange behind the pumpkin is by Making Memories, and the brown gingham behind the pumpkin stem is Webster's Pages. Those wood chevrons are by Studio Calico. The little leaf brads are super-old--I got them from the Target Dollar Spot eons ago. The orange word sticker is also ancient--by K&Co, and of course the brown word stickers are old 7Gypsies.
