fallish all over again

In the past, I haven't been one to do fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving stamping projects very much at all. However, I do love pumpkins and going to visit the local pumpkin patch is usually something my boys and I make it a point to do very early in the season, sometimes more than once. The weather here is still warm in the daytime but refreshingly nippy in the evening and frankly, it's downright inspirational for this stampy girl. :)

I have a taken a few days away from the reds and greens and silvers of Christmas crafting and jumped fully into the deep rich browns, golds, oranges and hints of blues and purples that are so much a part of fall.

Here are a few of the proceeds of my excursion into fall...

Good inspiration is certainly not hindered by a good picture as a jumping off point. This current Stampin' Royalty challenge includes the photo below, which has a little bit of everything fall.

The elements that really jumped out at me were the dried stalks of wheat (see the top card) and the shutter (referenced in the third card).
I'm also kinda diggin' that small bird egg blue pumpkin on the lower left. :)
Take a deep breath and feel the cool fall air...
