Hello everyone!  My name is Cyndy Gustashaw.  I am new to the SVG Attic I-team.  I hope I am able to inspire you with my personal touches using SVG Attic files and hope you will enjoy using them as much as I do.

I am married to a wonderful man who puts up with my crafts/hobbies and even encourages them.  He hopes that I can find a way to make BIG money so he can retire, lol.  Together we have three beautiful children, in addition to my two girls, that makes five children.  My father-in-law lives with us and my Mom retired when we had our second child and left her home in Southern California to move to North Carolina and be a full-time Grandmother and nanny.  

I have lots of favorite projects.  I put a little piece of me in everything I create so they are all special.  For my introduction I have chosen the JGW Pumpkin Stacker.  I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and for once I knew exactly what paper I was going to use!

I used Graphic 45, An Eerie Tale for this project.
I absolutely love this paper stack!

I reduced the size of this project to 75%.  It is still a sizable project the pumpkin stands almost 7" tall and the base is just over 6".  I almost always shrink my projects.  At first it was to conserve paper but everyone in my family loved the smaller sizes so now it is a preference.

I love the cute little stem.  My daughter even commented on how real it looks.  Thank you for visiting my blog post today, I look forward to sharing with you and would love for you to share your projects with us!

Do what inspires you!
