Pumpkin Picking - New Layout

Thank goodness another weekend is upon us! I am so not ready for Thanksgiving, but I am ready for all the holiday goodness that follows!

I finished a layout this evening of Maddie in the Pumpkin Patch this year. 

For this layout I played along with Whimsical Twist - Grateful Challenge. This challenge is to create a layout with a grateful or thankful focus. There is nothing in my life that I am more thankful for than my daughter. It was a long, sad struggle before we were finally blessed with this little monkey. Watching her explore the world is what I am most grateful for.

Since we are on the Thankful theme, I also played along with Sketches4All - Cheryl's challenge group #24 - use "thank you" or "thanks". I used a "fall giving thanks" chipboard on the right hand side.

I also played along with a similar challenge from The Paper Girls Challenge #44 - "thanks". There is so much to be thankful for this time of year. I think every layout I create could meet this challenge requirement. I am a very blessed lady!

For the left side, I used the sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap Nov. 15th.

For the right side, I used the sketch from MME November Sketch week:

I used MME on almost every page I create, yet this one - which is using a MME sketch, I didn't use anything! Whoops. Looks like I will not be submitting it for the challenge. 

Here are a couple of closeup photos:

Materials used: Paper - Basic Grey, Creative Memories, MME; rub-ons -Memories Complete and Beary Patch; 3D sticker - Jolee's and Colorbok; quickutz; ribbon - unknown; ink - CTMH.

Thanks for visiting my little blog. Have a blessed weekend and stay warm!
