S2GSC30 - Happy Fall, Y'all!!

It's another spectacular Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday challenge, so I hope you're all ready for some fun, fun, fun!!

Here's the sketch for this week, and the twist is to include a PUMPKIN in your design. There are so many ways to include a pumpkin - whether you use a pumpkin embossing folder, a die cut, DP with a pumpkin on it - just use your noggin' and I know you'll come up with the means to include a pumpkin in your design!

The image that I got to work with this week is called "Happy Fall (SG 619)." I colored the image with my Copics, and for a change, I'm pretty happy with the end result. I had a blast with this layout - and used a fun pumpkin die cut and mini embossing folder that I'd never used before! I'll definitely be using it again!!

I know you want to play along with us this week - you know you do, too. Well, all you have to do is create a card using this week's sketch (don't forget the twist!), and then click on the blinkie below - that'll take you right to Mr. Linky where you need to upload a link to your project. You'll find all the rules of playing there, too. Oh, and if you want some amazing and instant-gratification digi images - check out the What's New Section at the Shirley's 2 Girls store. Cute stuff, I tell ya!!
