The Great Pumpkin Adventure!

Happy Friday, friends! I have a 2-page layout to share with you today using the stunning "Dear Diary" kit at Noel Mignon. Gasp! Yes, I said a 2-page layout. It's definitely out of my comfort zone to do a 2-page layout but it's something I'm trying to do more and more. I used primarily Lily Bee Designs products on my layout and even did a little misting using Glimmer Mist in Tiger Lily and Coffee Shop for added texture.

Here's a close-up of my title. I used Crate Paper and Jenni Bowlin sticker labels, Cosmo Cricket alphabet stickers, Pink Paislee alphabet stickers (from Sleepy Hollow) and American Crafts thickers. 

For the pumpkins, I hand drew a template and then pieced them together using Lily Bee patterned paper. You could certainly use a Cricut or other die-cut machine. I also machine stitched the pumpkins together.  The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart maple leaf punch and I used foam adhesive on several of them for added dimension. 

Here's a look at my banner and journaling. 

I definitely enjoyed creating this 2-pager and hope to do more! It's a cool, rainy fall day in Iowa today. I don't mind a snuggly day here and there! We're enjoying an early family Thanksgiving this weekend and then next week is busy, busy, busy with something going on every day. Don't forget to comment on my post below for the mini kit giveaway!

I'll be back soon! :)
