Purple Pumpkin - October

I am soooooooo loving my Purple Pumpkin embellishments. I really enjoy working with handmade embellishments and buying them from Purple Pumpkin takes the effort out of having to make them myself! Now I'm not a lazy scrapper (LOL ... far from it) but when you want a certain look and want to scrap that look quickly, what could be more perfect than pre handmade embellishments? You can find all things yummy and delicious at Purple Pumpkin HERE.

Anyways, each month Purple Pumpkin has a sketch challenge and we all know how much I love a sketch challenge!! This month the sketch was brought to us by Anne Patterson ...

I really liked the simplicity of Anne's sketch ... so much room for interpretation and play! In the end I rotated the sketch to the left and used just one large photo instead of two smaller photos ...
