Picking The Perfect Pumpkin with Scrapbook Challenges

Hello everyone! We are enjoying an extra day off from school today, and that makes it a very good day!

I am super excited to share with you my first reveal for Scrapbook Challenges! Today is a new sketch challenge.

And here is my layout:

Abby and Shawn took Ada to the pumpkin patch for the first time the first weekend of October. Besides having issues with her camera and memory card, Abby said it was a really fun day. I am so glad that she was able to get a few fun pictures for me! Of course Ada had to go for the biggest pumpkin she could find. Her Mommy and Daddy convinced her to go with the one she could actually carry!

Bella Blvd's Hello Autumn collection was the perfect collection for these photos. I even dug out my sewing machine and stitched around the circle, and it's hard to see, but I stitched around the edge of the layout as well. That is a rare occasion for me, but I really like the way it turned out. I may have to dig out my sewing machine more often.

Head on over to the Scrapbook Challenges blog to see what the other design team members have created. I hope you play along with us - if you do you have a chance at being a guest designer for us!

Thanks for stopping by and make today a great day!
