Adorable 3D Pumpkin

Isn't this little pumpkin just too cute?!  I got the directions/ideas straight from the SU! demonstrator website!  How good they are to us... :)  I changed the stamps since I didn't have what they used, but I think I like how it came out.  First try:)  There are a few things I want to play with (measurements, the tag, etc) If you want to know how to do it, let me know and I'll show you how!  He would be a perfect centerpiece for Thanksgiving day!  Or even a place card at each setting!  

Anyway, have a wonderful weekend with this cool weather... try to stay out of the rain!  I am working on a project this weekend that I'll post next week!  Love, Lauren
