Pumpkin Album

This is what I have been working on for the past few days. It's a photo album made from a craft pumpkin. I'm only going to show the first two pages of the album, but it has 12 in all.

I'm thinking about doing a workshop on this in November (before Thanksgiving). Wouldn't this make a great gift to bring to your hostess for Thanksgiving?

Treasure Life

I just got this set, Beautiful Things, and had to try a Zindorf technique on it. If you're wondering what a Zindorf technique is, click on the Michelle Zindorf's blog link on the right and check out her sight. You will be astonished by her creativity with a brayer!
