Pumpkin Carving-SWEET

Another layout I did this week is for Sketches in Thyme #60- which I only had this one picture to scrap, so I made it work with this sketch. It's of a pumpkin my son carved back in 2007- when the Chicago Bears were doing, and he did such a great job carving the Bear logo on this pumpkin I had to scrap it for his book.
 All the papers are from my Halloween stash- which is a very large 12 x 12 box full and some are quite old and have no company names on them- but they work just as well. The pumpkin saying sticker is from EK Success and I hand cut the flag banners. All the other embellies are to from the stash and put on with pop dots. I tore some paper and inked edges in purple, used black and purple pieces of cardstock for the mats. The black embossed shiny background paper kinda reminds me of the carving look on the pumpkin- and makes the whole layout really pop with the orange and pola dot papers I used.
 I did a little bit of journaling and then went over it in bright green chalk to stand out a little more. Also used some halloween ribbon and stapled them to the page. The cute little saying "Sweet" is perfect for this page- because at that time -- that is exactly the word my son used to describe his carving project...SWEET
