Pumpkins, pumpkins...everywhere!


Are you enjoying the fabulous fall weather yet? In my area (southern part of Ontario, Canada), the temperature is much cooler and the air is cold and crisp these days. I'm loving it! I see pumpkins everywhere, too! I noticed my nearby supermarket even put on a great display of pumpkins and "spider" and I had to take a photo to share with you. David can drive me to the grocery store, here's a photo proof! ! I now have a chauffeur-YAY (well, almost)! I was holding onto the side handle very tightly VERY calm!
Isn't this display COOL or what?


Isn't that a LOT of pumpkins!? The flat side of the bale of hay is the "face" of spider and the air ducts are the "legs"! I was all inspired by the fall scenes and just happen to have the righ photo of my DD Stephanie's field trip to the pumpkin farm back in her preschool days. So I made a scrapbook page!
Sweet Pie Pumpkins
The great thing about digit kit ( shop here) is that you can re size the pumpkin to suit the layout. This photo was my DD Stephanie when she took a little field trip to nearby pumpkin farm in her preschool days. It's hard to believe that she is now in 4th year in university! I so wish I can turn back the clock...oh well, that's what scrapbooking is all about. It's for moments like this!

OH Virginia, I was wondering if this was Stephanie! How sweet that you have such a perfect picture! The time is going by too quickly - I have 2 teens driving. That is neat that David can now drive you to the grocery store. I hope that it isn't turning you grey likeit is me! LOL!
Gorgeous layout! I love the digi pumpkins!

WONDERFUL post today, Virginia! LOVED all of the photos that you shared! David looks intent while driving and that is GOOD! He's going to do just fine. He is very responsible and knows the seriousness of driving.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your scrapbook layout of Stephanie. It's ADORABLE and what a little cutie she is! How come they grow up so QUICKLY? You did a FANTASTIC job on this one, Virginia. Stephanie will LOVE it, too. Fun Halloween display that you shared! I DO LOVE PUMPKINS, Virginia....not a huge fan of Halloween, but I can't help but love those beautiful Fall displays with the pumpkins, corn stalks and scare crows. Fall is SO PRETTY, isn't it? Love, Karen xoxo

So glad you decided to show off your fun Halloween page V! And what a great pumpkin display! :) What a wonderful time of year! I wish it were a tad cooler here. We had upper 80s today. Some nights cool down a little, but most are too warm or humid to open the window. Real defferent where we live.
