One of my favorite activities in the fall is going to the pumpkin patch with Kaitlin!

It's always a great adventure to pick out the perfect pumpkin (or two...or three...) to adorn our front steps until it's time to carve them for Halloween.

We’ve been going to Garrity’s Prairie Gardens each fall to pick out a pumpkin or two for several years now, but this was the first time that Daddy went along.

Kaitlin had a great time showing him around…the goats were feeling friendly and they both had great time exploring the hay maze.

Dad especially came in handy when it came time to carry the pumpkins back to the car!

Comments & Techniques:
This is a great design for strictly 4X6 photos. The two horizontal photos were trimmed down only slightly to avoid cutting through the subject in the photo to the left.

The vines associated with a pumpkin patch are repeated several times throughout the layout – the viney text of the title, the rubons, the design in the accent ribbon as well as the patterned paper itself.

The journaling was printed directly on the patterned paper by trimming it down to fit through a standard printer and setting it up to print in landscape format.
