Autumn in New England..

Of all the things I miss about Home since moving to the South, the one thing I miss most (besides people, obviously!) is the fall. Usually my vacation is around then, but this year I'm going to San Francisco to see a friend. So, hopefully next year I'll make my usual spring/fall vacations...This picture pretty much sums up fall for me, driving thru the small farming towns, streets with fields of bright orange pumpkins on both sides. Farm stands loaded with fresh just-picked veggies, and little kids trying so hard to pick up a huge pumpkin, all by themselves.

On this LO I used Chatterbox PP for all the small leaves, large leaf has the reverse of the PP, large leaf stencil from Tuppertoys (yes I still have mine!), "fall & Pumpkin chips from Colorbok, "pick of the Patch" letters from American Crafts Thickers, and stamped with a flourish from Autumn Leaves.

Very cool. Love the black base, makes the colors stand out more. Great job on that big pumpkin, love it!
