Sweet little pumpkin... Kelleigh Ratlaff Designs style

Good Morning!  I hope everyone is doing well.  Me?  I'm OK I guess.  I can't complain... well, I could but what good would it do?

Anyway, it's been so long since I've shared anything on my blog except for TMS posts.  Not that I haven't been making anything, but some things weren't share worthy, I guess.  But today's project is!  I love the Fall.  I love the colors.  I love the crisp air.  I love sweaters and sweatpants and slippers.  And I miss having all those things living in Florida.  I'm so jealous, I read a post by my cousin Michael on FB and he was going on and on about how beautiful the Aspens are looking.  *sigh*

Kelleigh Ratlaff Designs has a super cute Perfect Pumpkin 3D container that I just fell in love with.  I paired with a bit of her digital papers from her Blessings pack.  Also featured is one of leaves from her Autumn Leaves set.

I used Pumpkin Pie card stock (SU!) for the bottom of the box.  Take your time gluing the tabs and aligning the edges, and your results will be fantastic.  This pumpkin is so easy to put together.  The cutting file does not come with a stem, so I just rolled up card stock to create one.  Cut out one of the leaves from two different shades of green in the digi-paper pack and then embossed them.  I decided to distress them a bit so I did a light sanding on the embossing.  I then added a burlap bow to finish it off.

Throw in some treats and tie the bag off with a piece of jute.

So darn cute!!  Thanks for stopping by.  Leave me a comment, let me know you visited.

The sanding is the perfect touch! I love it! And that fun burlap bow. And the whole darn thing. I know what you mean EXACTLY about the share-worthy thing...sometimes I don't even take the photo because I don't want to remember the fail ;) This, however, is awesome!
