Another quick one page layout.  I used Lacy Labels buy used 3 of the background shape each a bit smaller that the largest to create these fabulous frames.
The title is Gypsy Font and all is welded except the first letter which I made a little larger that the rest.  For the journeling I used the computer and then cut each line apart and put them on the page with (slight) abandon.  :) 
 The pumpkins are from the FREE Smiley Cards cartridge for all those who have had the Gypsy for a while and registered it.  What a great gift from Provo Craft!  I used the hide/contour feature to hide the eyes because my kids love it when I put wiggly eyes on the characters.  I wanted to make sure to keep the faces because they compliment the faces my kids made on their own pumpkins.

Pick of the Patch

A cute page with a bunch of pumpkins, just like at the patch.  This was a fun page that really came together with the addition of the Baja Breeze.  Initially I only used the orange, green and brown but thought it was too boring so I added the bits of baja and love it.

I embossed the pumpkins and leaves then inked them to add dimension.  I also added some twine to each stem.  These little touches really make a difference in the over all look.
