The Shabby Tea Room #32!

Week #32 in the Tea Room brings us this scrumptious inspiration photo ...

... and our host, Pattie, is asking us all to create a card or project using the colors in this photo, the theme or both!  I chose to create a gift set based on the colors and the yummy theme:

I used a template from My Time Made Easy called Trendy Tote - one of my all time favorites :)  It goes together in a snap and you can fill the inside with so many wonderful goodies!  I chose to fill mine with Pumpkin Spice coffee, chocolate truffles and biscotti cookies!

All of the adorable images are digital files provided by our sponsor this week, Meljen's Designs!  I printed out a page full of images that would coordinate with my fall themed gift and papers and set myself in front of my soaps one afternoon - coloring the afternoon away!

How sweet are these little scarecrow images!  Just precious!!  The 'Friends' tag was printed from a Freebie Monday image ... I thought it went well with these two little scarecrow buddies :)

I turned this pumpkin image into an adorable tag/card by backing it with some cardstock!

So here is my complete gift set ... kinda cute, don't ya' think!!!

Please take some time this week to visit the other Shabby Girls' blogs to be inspired by their lovely work:
