Fall and Pumpkins

Hello and happy Monday!

I don't know about the rest of you in the northern hemisphere but, I LOVE this time of year! Right when Summer ends, I go through a little depression because I long for the later daylight but, that quickly subsides when the leaves begin to change color; the early morning Fall mist rolls in and Football! 

Because football.

Oh... and the smells. Apples. Pumpkins. Apples cooking. Pumpkin pie. Aaahhhhh.....

And I really am thankful for the first day I get to wear a sweater and jeans. 

I. Love. Fall.

Recently, while grocery shopping, I got to observe the largest pumpkins I have ever seen. They were HUGE. And they weighed the same size as... well... a teenager? Or a petite young woman? 

Huge. I say. They were HUGE! 

So, what does a scrapbooker do when they see HUGE pumpkins? They take a photo, of course, Duh.

Aren't they ginormous? 

(If you have seen larger pumpkins, please do not burst my bubble...)

To document this wonderful discovery, I used the fabulous fall collection Shine by We R Memory Keepers. LOVE these papers. Great colors. Great patterns. I used the 6x6 pad and cut down to the square sizes. Also, the acrylic heart on top of the kraft jar is from the same collection. 

I also incorporated several other things that you can find over at Paper Issues!

The October Swag Bag for one! I love this little bag of awesome. The gold leaves, kraft jar, leaf flair, sticker, paper clip, 'love this' tab and ampersand die cut are all from that bag. And there is still MORE for me to use!

This layout is also created for current issue and Link Party - Woodn't You Know. It's Fall! This link party is all about Fall themed projects and incorporating wood elements. There is a wonderful prize from Pinkfresh Studio, as well. See those cool wood chevrons up above? Those are from Pinkfresh and they are YUMMY!

I also based by layout on the current Sketchy Saturday link party. 

That's a lot of punch packed in this layout!
