PSIC September Challenge #23 - 'Pretty Pumpkins'

Happy September 1st!

{Honored that this was selected as the Winner at Scrapbook Blessings Club on 9/8/14)

It's been a busy weekend...especially here on my blog...be sure to check out the Trendy Twine Facebook Hop Post here, and the Trendy Twine Sneak here.

I guess this closes out the end of summer. I really am always sad to see it go and know cooler followed by colder weather will soon be on it's way.

A new inspiration challenge starts today at Paper Sweeties.   The theme is called pretty pumpkins using pinks and greens. I thought I would try something different this time, and make a pretty pink pumpkin for a packaging idea. I always like to work ahead on things, and since next month is Breast Cancer Awareness month and October is also known for pumpkins,  I thought it would be cute to package up a sweet gift to send to a survivor.  
I had a little mason jar candle which I packaged up and tied a bow and added a die-cut tag from  Sweet Cuts - Beautiful Little Wishes. I stamped a sentiment from Life is a Special Occasion which fit perfectly inside this darling size tag.  The sentiment is absolutely appropriate for a cancer survivor!
I will just set my little gift inside my pumpkin and it will be good to go! Below you will find your color palette and inspiration! You have one month to link up your projects in the gallery. You could be the next winner and guest designer.

See you in a bit!
