Carpe Diem ~ PTI October Blog Hop

carpediem

Good morning!! Welcome to my PTI Blog Hop post.  As I was writing this up a few days ago, I realized that the hop coincides with my class’ field trip to the Pumpkin Patch…how appropriate for the inspiration photo :)  LOL  I was really inspired by all the fabulous prints on the fabric pumpkins, especially the wood grain and polka dots.  AND of course, the overall colour of the inspiration photo…cream, brown, green and orange.

I am LOVING the wood grain set that matches all the Mat dies :) AND I am still loving the Hello Friend set…those flowers make my heart beat faster! LOL  Thanks so much for visiting and enjoy the rest of the hop :)

Swooning over the colours and the polka dots in the BG. Great take on the insp. piece! Totally forgot about the hop until today and those colours are screaming leaves to me so may have to join in :)

Hope the pumpkin patch goes well today. Always love seeing the big smiles on the kids' faces and there are always a few who want to get a huge pumpkin they can't carry LOL!

What a perfect interpretation of the inspiration photo; it is possible to tell that you were inspired but you didn't make a copy of the photo. Nice job.
