Yesterday I posted about my autumn wreath and today I tried to make a pumpkin that I saw on girlpluspaper blog that I thought was really cute.
Indulge me won't you as I share a little about both with you :) First a look at my "work space". I cut out, inked and rolled all the flowers at my computer desk. See due to flooding with the two hurricanes we have had our family is now living only on the 2nd level of our house and so my craft area is now also my kids play area, our living room, office, home school area and family living space! My only source of relief is know that it will not be like this forever - pray for me as I continue to lose things (and my mind :) ). Now this was actually a "date night" or "bonding time" with my husband.
Art Philosophy cartridge by Close To My Heart for the entire wreath (minus the Styrofoam form, ribbon and pins).
Cooking with Cricut" challenge. Using the yellow patterned paper from Elemental I cut out six 3 1/2 inch scalloped lacy circles (this is using the shift decorative feature of the circle2/tree1 button). I used olive green cardstock for the top (cut out a 3 1/2 inch flower7 button) and the 2" leaf (cut out from the leaf4 button). Finally, I used paper from the Dreamin paper pack to cut a 1" rectangle (from the rectangle2 button) and rolled it up to make the stem.

I just discovered Above Rubies Studio and they have a FREE Cricut cutting guide as well as some really helpful dvd tutorials. This has helped to save me a ton of paper.
