Green and peach?

I love a little twist to the normal color combos and for this inspiration... we took greens and a shade of peach with black. Now take a peek and see how Valerie and Nicole use this traditional color combo with a twist.
There are a lot of things I am grateful for but mainly, I am so very grateful for my wonderful family. I don't know what I would do without them and I really mean that... so having said that, I want to share a picture of us all together on Thanksgiving 2010.

Heidi found this photo on pinterest for our inspiration. I just love these colors! And here is now I used them

Now that my kids are older I miss all the fun and excitement of trick or treating with them, but my youngest daughter did get dressed up last year to take part in a "haunted house" for charity! We've been lucky enough to recycle this dress for several years - it's been used in plays and Renaissance fairs, and for different trick or treating looks - but last year she was a ghoul child that lived in a huge spider web! She had all the little kids screaming for their parents...LOL!!

I was inspired to make this layout using the following picture and color scheme. I made a flower that stood out on my layout (just like the inspiration picture) and I liked the graphic look of the number in the inspiration picture, so I made sure I included numbers on my layout also.

I made the 3-d pumpkin using the Chipart chipboard pieces. I simply took a round shape, which I cut the top and bottom section off of and an oval shape which I covered with patterned paper and layered it on top of the round piece to make a pumpkin. I then a rounded corner rectangular piece at an angle for the stem of the pumpkin.
After some misting and inking and adding some vines and leaves it all came together!

I used a mix of GCD Studios Collections the patterned paper from the Great Outdoors, the Soul Food, and the Homespun Chic Collections and the super fun border and glitter candy dots from the Funhouse Collection!

Other products: Martha Stewart and EK Success punches, Jenni Bowlin buttons, Maya Road pins and mist, Cosmo Cricket chipboard letters, Martha Stewart artisan tape, Studio Calico stamp, Pink Paislee brads .

Thanks for stopping by and looking!! Have a fun creating!!
