Papercraft Star 17


Welcome to Papercraft Star, Challenge 17!

This week we have a challenge photo, from Martha Stewart Living. I thought the colors and decor looked very retro...

I stuck with the round, and the classic orange, and I thought it was a lot of fun to do something I was not comfortable with AT ALL !! And as is often said, THAT IS WHAT A CHALLENGE IS ALL ABOUT !!

Now, here is a story on me ! A few years ago I picked up a magazine that had a blurb on the cover that read :

"Everything you wanted to know about Smashing Pumpkins"

Yup, I had to buy it because I only knew that smashing pumpkins ruined a good jack o' lantern. I think that was the year I was living under a rock. Or maybe a pumpkin. At any rate, I am much hipper today...
