Alota Pumpkin Anyone?

I am so ready for summer to be over and fall to roll in - and these Alota Hauling Pumpkin Bugs are getting ready for fall!

I have colored with my Copics -and doodled the edge. Then I dug all through my pattern papers. I just knew I had the PERFECT pattern paper for this image... and I FOUND IT! You know trying to find one sheet of paper in the million pieces of paper I have close to winning the lottery.

Now am I right or what... perfect pattern paper huh? It is from BoBunny, and that wonderful dot paper is the back side of the pumpkin pattern! Love when I don't have to worry about finding matching papers.
I also added a picket fence border from a Martha Stewart punch. Seemed that a really good pumpkin patch would have a good fence around it. The ribbon is from American Crafts - and the sentiment is from Alota Rubber Stamps as well... "Happy Fall" a fun sentiment.. Then I used two pumpkin buttons to finish it off.

It felt good to craft and just cuz... you know what I mean? And Alota Bugs always make me smile, don't they you? Helene has all kinds of new images this month - and the next release is coming really soon... so pop over to the site ( and see them for a smile!

UPDATE: I knew you would want an update on Macey and Felicia. Macey is doing much better, she is back to eating and seems to be feeling better. Felicia is still a worry, very slightly better, she is lethargic and not eating much - I keep hoping that the next few days she will start to show more improvement.

Hope you all in the US have a wonderful Labor Day Holiday - And a Happy Monday to everyone...
HUGS and-
