Homegrown Pumpkins and a Blackbird

I didn't intend on sharing this 12 x 12 layout today, but I guess I didn't get a picture of it yet.  I still have a few Fall projects to share before I start posting all of my Christmas projects.  I can't believe the Holiday's are upon us and I can't wait to start sharing all of my Christmas projects!!

For this layout I used lots of punches and Big Shot dies.  The big pumpkin is made using the center of the Oval Scallop Frame and the smaller gourd is made using the Ovals Die.  For the stem I just punched the edge of my Soft Suede Cardstock with the Extra- Large Oval Punch and then punched over that same spot.  I just kind of eyeballed the shape as I punched it out.  The Blackbird is made using the  Extra- Large Oval Punch for the body, the 1 3/4 inch Scallop Circle Punch for the wings, the 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch for the head & beak, the Large Oval Punch for the hat and the Boho Blossoms Punch for the feet.  I printed my little signs and stamped them with the Woodgrain Stamp.  This has to be one of my favorite layouts with the Spice Cake DSP and the Burlap. 

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful evening.  Take care.
