A gift for Taylor

Scrapfest at Mall of America in Minneapolis is this weekend. I will be there with a few thousand of my closest friends. lol. A group of us have arranged a dinner with Taylor Vanbruggen. If you haven't been to her blog, Taylored Expressions, you need to check it out! I wanted to make her a little gift and this is what I came up with. I got the idea from Leigh O'Brien at Sunflower Studios. She altered this adorable metal frame and I decided to borrow her idea and make a Halloween version.

Materials used: metal board(Target $ spot last year)
Stamps: Autumn Apparitions(Happy Halloween)
Ink: Really Rust for sponging around the pumpkin and Craft Black
Paper: Creepy Crawly Designer Paper, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Really Rust
Other: library clips from holiday mini, modpodge, irridescent ice embossing powder, magnets, crystal effects

The pumpkins have a magnet on the back so you can move them around where you want them. You can clip photos or notes on the pumpkins. This was very fun to make!

Have fun at scrapfest, I went a couple years ago and it was insanity, we didn't even get to make all the free projects because people were making them like 3 or 4 times and they ran out.
Love the frame, those pumpkins are adorable!
