So where's the mail? Well, the large pumpkin itself was actually a postcard advertisement from a bank asking us to stop by and guess the weight of their giant pumpkin (and to set up an account, yada, yada, yada)! I cut out the pumpkin (in sections) and layered it onto the largest scalloped circle Nestie I had. Part of the print ran onto the image so I used some swirly chipboard pieces to hide as much of it as I could. The little green leafy collar was an SU! felt flower that I cut in half. And I used a sentiment from Northwoods that just seemed to fit perfectly.
This kind of challenge is actually right up my alley. As a high school and college student This is the way I would decorate my assignment notebooks and photo albums! I would scour through magazines and mail and cut out words, pictures and phrases. I would always make things out of non traditional items. One of my college buddies used to call me "The McGyver of Arts and Crafts" - He would say "You can make something cute out of anything!"
So anywhoo, I'm looking forward to the next challenge. Sound interesting? Stop by Courtney's blog and check out all of the deets and see what everyone else has come up with!
And stop by tomorrow for some extra exciting news from ME!
