Pumpkins and Apples

Today, I am sharing with you two projects from Lizzie Anne Designs September 2009 Monthly Mix "Something to Crow About", using two of my favorite images from the set.

I love mixing and matching papers from different companies. Here I used My Mind's Eye, Karen Foster, Basic Grey, SU! and Bazzill. I colored the pumpkins with a Copic marker and then colored over it with colored pencils and Gamsol. I love how rich the pumpkins look. This fun carton uses paper from LAD's Grungy Dots (brown with black dots), Basic Grey (stripes) and Making Hand-made Cards (green dots). The carton is from Becky Roberts' tutorial Milk Carton. Be sure to stop by her blog. She has the best tutorials!
I stamped the apples and then with a circle punch, cut one. Inside are sour apple Jolly Ranchers. I think this would make a great little gift for a teacher.
