members agreed that Pumpkins were the perfect theme for this month’s hop! I
decided to take a very non-Halloween themed collection and make it work for
a 4×6 picture of these jack o’lanterns that my kids designed! Believe it or
not, I used the new Pinkfresh Studio Celebrate collection for this one!
Using a patterned paper background with a mixed media style circle already
painted on and building a crescent shaped floral wreath that wraps around
the left-hand side of the circle. This floral wreath creates a design

To finish off this wreath, I dug into my fall stash and found some Prima
puffy stickers from an older Amber Moon collection and placed them around
the photo, along with a few enamel hearts and several dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops. A little gold ink splatter and this one was done! I love the way this
turned out and I think it was a fun little challenge to scrap very themed
photos with a non-themed collection!
