One of my contributions was to the Fall Paper Hues segment;
I'm sharing a few more photos of it below ♥

When we were first introduced to the color scheme I knew that I had 
seen something very similar at one point in time.
  A-ha!  My Mind's Eye Mischievous of course!
I created the layered pumpkins with the nesting lace dies by Lifestyle Crafts.
I also used a couple of different punches that I had on hand, as well as creating
my own template for the large pumpkin leaves and nose.
