Our Destination - Purple Pumpkin

Earlier today, I went to my crafty space to organize.  I literally had to step over PILES of stuff in order to get to my desk.  Clearly, I needed to set some time aside to tackle this mess.  I set the timer for 1 hour and now my room is ready to be used again.

I'm always searching for new motivation, so I thought I'd search for new challenges.  I found Purple Pumpkin and was instantly drawn to their sketch for the month.

I love how unique it is...

Here is my take on it...

I started with this fabulous BG, but underneath the chevron was a little elephant holding a red balloon (cute, but not going to work with this LO)...

I gathered all the papers I wanted to use and was drawn to the turquoise and yellow combo (funny, because these are the colors in my craft room).

I knew I had to ground these too colors because my eyes were moving all over the page...  I wasn't quite sure what to look at.  I think the black washi draws your eyes to the photo.

And then, the upper corner looked a little lonely, so I gave it some love with a banner and a tag.

Thanks for stopping by.
