It's a Bird... It's a Plane... It's Whimsical Designs Blog Hop!


Not this again.
(Super Grover tends to be referred to in my posts periodically)

It's an apple... No. It's supposed to be an apple. But now I call it a pumpkin... Yes. That's what it is.

Oh wait. Yes, you've made it to the Whimsical Designs Fall Blog Hop.  You should have come here from Carole Anne's blog.  She has some pretty amazing projects so make sure you check them out. If you want to start from the beginning go straight to Whimsical Designs blog

For my project, I created a pumpkin made from Stampin' Up! glimmer paper and hot glue!! Obviously my initial idea was centered around apples but sometimes things just have a way to change their mind... :)

BLOG CANDY ALERT!!! SEE BELOW!!
It started out as a stem with two die cut circles and some rolled cardstock.
 
Then strip by strip I placed it together.  Don't forget the staples... I love staples. Good and strong. Never-fail.  Staples can always be trusted. Staples are your friend.
Once I was happy with the volume I used some leaf die cuts from Stampin' Up! as well as some curled cardstock to "top it off"

Remember that paper has memory so it will hold the curl! (I promise!)
