Fall Decorations

What a wonderful Sunday morning I am having!!  We had to turn on the heater this morning for the first time this fall.  We really could have done it sooner but today it was a must have!!  I have spent the last couple hours playing in my scraproom.  As of right now it is a DISASTER!!!  I may have to do some cleaning before I do any more creating!!
So, what was I creating, you ask?  I was working on a project for this weeks challenge over at All that Scraps.  I don't do a lot of "projects", usually cards and in the past pages.  I really wanted to do this challenge though, so here it is!!  It also qualifies for the "Anything but a card challenge" over at Mad for Markers Blog.

My husband has a serious addiction to Laffy Taffy. I mean serious!!  He buys a 3 lb bag at least once a week.  What really gets me though is that the man is thin!!!  Really not a fair part of life!!  If I eat a few 5 pounds jumps right to my hips!!!  So as I was playing I had to "borrow" his taffy to put these together.  Having 5 grandkids, these will get eaten!  The challenge was to make a decoration, so I have set my little box in my entry way on a little table there next to this great pitcher that I bought as a decoration for Katie's wedding in August.
OK, now for the supplies:
Copics: too many to list!!
The fence and pumpkins are from my very talented friend Guylou.  You can find the digistamp here
The cute little girl sitting on the pumpkins in Emma from All that Scraps, a CC Designs stamp
The Life is Sweet stamp is a Hamptons stamp.
Sorry my post was so long this morning!!! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm with Dana, not too long a post (have you seen mine?!) I couldn't think of anything for the challenge either: it's spring here, so a bit hard to think of autumn (even though it is my favourite time of year). I'm all inspired now, though, so I may be able to knock up an entry - unlikely - time is my enemy!!!!
