Purple Pumpkin - October sketch :-)

G'day!  Well I'm spending a Friday evening in my craft room with my two boys.  We're renovating at the moment and our house is freezing!!!  So we've had an early dinner and bath and are now lovely and snug in my craft room with the little oil heater going :-)  We've had to sacrifice a couple of cheapy Santa hats for tonight's project... but I think it's worth it.  Evan has been wanting to make a King's crown for a while now.  And of course Royce is happy to go with the flow.  The main thing is that we are spending some quality time together. 

I really should be doing something crafty too.  My plan was to make a few Christmas cards... but I'm really just too tired to be bothered at the moment.  So instead, while they are going completely crazy with the 'jewels', I thought I might quickly pop in here and share my layout that I've completed for Purple Pumpkin's October sketch.

Here is what I came up with:

This really was my 'type' of sketch.  One photo, a few clusters of embellishments... yep I liked it :-)  LOVE this range of paper from My Minds Eye.  And the Purple Pumpkin button and heart were perfect for the touch of orang in the patterned paper!  Okay well this is really short and sweet for me because Evan is ready to glue his crown together.  Hope you're having a lovely day and thanks for popping by!
