Pumpkin Patch

Happy Thursday!
One more day until the weekend.
I am SO stoked! Not sure why, but it has seemed like a longer week than usual.
I have done ALOT of scrapping & crafting (more to come later-PROMISE!) this week and surprisingly, it hasn't all been scrappy pages. BUT this is one that I have done using American Crafts new Chap line.
At first this page was NOT coming together-my friend Ann watched me cut paper after paper and ask her opinion-to which she would reply 'I don't hate it'. And I would LMH(ead)O. When all else fails with busy patterns-just add white cardstock. It's a super easy way to neutralize them. I knew this but I thought it was somehow taking the easy way out. Regardless-I am super-THRILLED with my end result and glad that I caved. I also added some punched and embossed clouds to add a bit more texture and interest (remember I said I have been giving my poor Cuttlebug a workout this past week on yesterday's post?? I have LOADS more to share in the coming days-I PROMISE)
