Inspired By...#42

I really love this inspiration photo, it just makes me happy.  I would love to live somewhere that I could have this as a decoration in my yard - a nice country farmhouse...

So many elements in this photo: fall, pumpkins, leaves, distressing, the truck, numbers, signage, the colors...

This week I have a special guest!  Lauren plays along in so many of my challenges and she has the most wonderful projects!  I am so happy that she is joining me this week.  Now you must  visit Lauren's blog you won't be disappointed!

I love the creation Lauren has for us today, look at those pumpkins!

Thank you for joining me today Lauren.

For my project I dug into my Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor collection and went with the whole feel of the photo.  I have used some May Arts Net Ribbon, my much loved Woven Burlap ribbon and some Jute twine.  

Now I can't wait to see what you do with this photo inspiration!

Soooo love your card, Laurel! That paper is fabulous, and I love your rustic, elegant design. The mix of trims adds such fantastic texture and eye candy! Lauren's paper pieced pumpkins are absolutely adorable, too!
