Smile SBTC87 October 19, 2007 Pumpkin Patch

Happy Friday, Ladies! This is my first theme challenge so I really hope I do this right and give you something fun to work with.

This is my favorite time of year to decorate and take pictures. The absolute best part of fall is our annual trip to the orchard. I love the colors, textures, smells... everything!!!! So my theme challenge is...
Pumpkin Patch!

Use anything that you find inspiring about the pumpkin patch or orchard. If you do not live in an area that has them, think about the displays in supermarkets and farm stands:
pumpkins, gourds, apples, hay bales,mums, indian corn, corn husk bundles, cider. Use these images on your page or take inspiration from the colors or textures. Use any pictures at all but bonus points for using fall pics (can I do that?)

My first sample is all-out Pumpkin Patch!
My second sample was inspired by red mums: Elijah

I hope everyone has fun with this. I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Don't forget to put SBTC87 in your keywords and link it back here so we can easily find your page.

Great theme for this time of year. My favorite of all... Thankfully we have already visited the orchard so I know I have photos...

Perfect theme. I've got something in the works that will qualify.

I was trying to think what I could do for this and the mums idea is great for someone who isn't going to a pumpkin patch or apple orchard for those pictures. Now, I just have to figure out how to get those pictures off of the new digital camera, always challenged Carolyn

Your page was great! I followed all the connections and read about Elijah's surgery and all the transplants! Such a miracle! I have had two kidney transplants myself and taking all those pills must be tough on such a litle one. Take lots of pictures and fill many scrapbooks to help us all remember who runs things! Thanks for the inspiration, and page idea.

Thank you for taking the time to read about Elijah It has been a hard road but we are so thankful for everything that the doctors are able to do. He is still in NYC but just had a great appointment this week. They said he may be moved to a hospital closer to us in 2 weeks. We are so excited and so thankful for God's work!
