Without further ado here is this month's inspiration:

and my project:

This month it was tough for me to fit the inspiration -- I had tons of ideas but nothing really seemed to come together quite right until this lil guy fell onto my desk! Unfortunately by then I had nixed the kind of pumpkin-ny orange =(

Supplies: CosmoCricket paper, petaloo flower, Studio G stamps, Anita stamp, corrugated cardboard, distress ink, stazOn ink, EP sticker alphas, random faux stamen and bead floral spray, white acrylic paint, adhesive, twine.

Don't forget -- you're on your way to Valerie's Blog!!!
Thanks in advance for all your sweet comments :) -DeeDee
