The subject is yet again my cutie pie of a nephew and his daddy this time at the pumpkin patch last year. As my two subjects were males I wanted to tone down on the flowers a but so I decided to use more textures on this layout. I used a piece of corrugated cardboard for my background which I painted and distressed with Distress Ink. I also machine stitched the background and added a big handmade banner to hold my title.

I stamped and punched out a bunch of pumpkins. I pop dotted them for added dimension and added stickles to them. I also added some greenery and a few tiny yellow scattered flowers.

Here's another close up of my pumpkin cluster.

I just loved how this banner turned out! I made the pendants out of the Heartfelt Creations pattern paper so that it would match (I love how everything matches perfectly!) and added the orange letters that I cut with my Pazzles Inspirations machine. I added some hemp cord over the top to tie all the pendants together.

here's another view of the banner and corrugated cardboard background.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Cut a wavy border on all 4 sides of the pattern paper. Distress with the edges of a pair of scissors and ink the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. Adhere unto cream colored cardstock and machine stitch around the borders.  Cut a piece of 8.5” square out of a cardboard box. Distress with Vintage Photo distress ink, Maya Road mistables and white acrylic paint. Add in the center of layout. Cut a V notch on two strips of 2” and 2.5” of paper to make large pendants. Machine stitch around the edges and add over the cardstock. Place a 7”x5” photo over it. Make a banner out of pattern paper and place over top of layout, using hemp cord to tie all the pendants together. Add your title to the banner.Stamp, color and die cut a few different sized pumpkins. Fuzzy cut a few pumpkin for the pattern paper as well. Add pumpkins over the entire bottom side of the photo. Stamp and die cut about 3 Bella Rose leaves and flourishes. Cut them apart and add greenery around the pumpkins. Stamp, color and die cut a few small flowers. Add around the pumkin cluster and add a drew drop as a flower center.  Add  stickles, Lime Green to the leaves and Diamond to the pumpkins and flowers, to finish it off.
