Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past

Good morning!  I cannot believe it is already time for the November Blast From the Past blog hop!  This month has just flown by.  Crazy!  This month, Taylor challenged us with a Thankful theme and this amazing pumpkin and sentiment from Celebrate Life fit the bill.  I stamped the pumpkin in Colorbox Pumpkin Spice on Choice Buttercream cardstock, and then colored it with Copic markers.  The patterned papers are Stella & Rose Mabel by My Mind's Eye and I followed the challenge sketch pretty closely, although I put the button flag over the circle instead of underneath.  That's only because I stamped the pumpkin to high and it looked odd floating up there, LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
