SPCC #33 - My Little Pumpkin

2/01/2010 03:00:00 PM Edit This 15 Comments »
Sorry for the lousy photography when trying to take a pic of the LO. I got my daughter's hand-me-up camera when she got a new one, and I'm just not used to it yet. I know, she should be the one to get the used one, and me the new one! But she left a week ago for ITALY for a semester abroad, so I wanted her to have a good camera so I can live vicariously through her photos. She is studying Landscape Architecture and is now at the Santa Chiara Study Center in Castiglion Fiorentino (in Tuscany, no less). Her blog is It-Alli-A (her name is Alli - cute, huh?).

This LO is using Sami's SPCC Color Combo #33. Can you tell that she's feeling overwhelmed by the cold, dreary winter? What a way to put a little zip in a LO! This LO features my darling granddaughter Adelyn. The pics were taken this past fall when she was about 4 months old. These colors don't scream "pumpkins", but the colors did match what she was wearing (sort of), so I went with that. The CS is all SU, the flowers are punched, the mat borders are punched with SU's eyelet border punch, and I added some tulle that I got on sale at JoAnn's (a roll goes a long way, and it adds some fun texture).

Why don't you see what you can come up with for this wild color combo. It might just brighten your day, and you could win a wonderful prize from Sami's extensive stash!

Aww, I love your little pumpkin sitting amongst all the "real" pumpkins! Adorable!

And I laughed too about the "hand me up" camera... I DEF do the same thing to my mom, but only because she doesn't take nearly as many pictures as I do! hah

Thanks for another great LO and laugh, Susan! :)
