A Pumpkin for Thanksgiving--FREE Tutorial

Hello, stampers;
Mondays are special days...and today I'm so excited to share with you the project I made to participate in the H2H Challenge of this week: Halloween or Pumpkin.
This is a big pumpkin, big enough to be used as a centerpiece during Thanksgiving dinner.

I used Fall Harvest for the leaves, Flirty B&T Paper for the pumpkin, and Chocolate CS for the stem and veins. This is an easy project, but if you don't have the right measurements, you cannot make it, I'm going to share this tutorial with you.
Here are the rules to participate:
*H2H Challenges are open to everyone! To participate, follow the challenge of the week and post your results to your personal blog or other online gallery.
*Go back to the H2H Challenge blog and direct link to the post in your blog related to the challenge for that week...we want to see your creations!!
*In order to participate in a challenge, you must use CTMH products but your project does not have to be 100% CTMH. If you use something from another company, please consider including details in the project's description.
* You MUST mention H2H challenges in your blog post and a link back to us would be appreciated. Feel free to spread the word about our challenge blog by including our badge on your blog.
*Most importantly, have FUN creating - with Close to myHeart!!...the BEST!!
Until next time,

    1. Erin, darling...I should've taken care of this before, but sometimes life duties get on the way and I wanted to take time to thank you for this wonderful recognition...I'm basically starting as a new CTMH consultant and having someone as talented as you giving me a Liebster Award makes me feel amazingly good! Thanks so much and I will keep the, to find 5 more consultants to give this award to.
