Out of the hat at lasting memories

This week at Lasting Memories it's an out of the hat challenge.
Pick any 4 things and create a layout.

Out of the Hat

Here's a layout that I truly have pulled out of the hat and my album.  I'm not playing tricks on you because  you've seen it before in its more simple existence.  I made the base of this LO back in June while on scrap retreat and wasn't quit satisfied with it. 
 So what better time to trick it out then with this challenge.  I already had orange and green on the layout not to mention the flourishes and pumpkins

All I did was add some yellow ribbon and the scarecrow die cut to give it a more finished look
 and get in my four elements.

Colors:  Orange, Green, yellow and a tiny bit of red on the scarecrow

Die cut: scarecrow popped up with foam squares

Ribbon: I used the reverse side of some yellow and flower print ribbon

Flourish: are off cast from another scrappers project
(she made a bunch of guitars from quarter note cart and cut off the flourishes she didn't want.)

Oops I have five. 
 Pumpkins:  in the photos and under the scarecrows feet

Hope you've been inspired to join us this week and
don't forget about our monthly prize.  The more you play the more chances to win.  We are also  looking for an November guest designer.  If you'd like a chance just add GDT after your name when you link it up.
