I Want This One!


I have always loved this photo my friend Michelle sent me of her grandson Paytin (isn't that a great name!) picking out his pumpkin on a visit to the pumpkin patch - and I thought it would be perfect for a scrapbook page or a card. Everything about the photo is perfect - the look of intent on his face, the pumpkin almost as big as he is!

So when I saw this Mo Manning image - I was so excited, because here he was! :<)

The idea for the card came from one that Dawn created on her blog "My Stamping Thyme" and I liked it so much I asked if I could CASE my own version of it. You can see her card and all of Dawn's wonderful creations at Thank you for the inspiration, Dawn! I love your blog! :<)

I don't do scrapbooking but I know I will have to make a page for Michelle using these two little guys - the real one and the image! So cute!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! :<)

The similarity is uncanny! What a cute little guy, and a cute Mo Manning image (I love her artwork). You have coloured him beautifully Barbara.
Have a great weekend - hugs, Sylvia xxx

That photo is a perfect inspiration, and the image you found is excellent! I adore how you made the shaped card and the added texture of the curlies is so precious!
