{November} Blog Hop and Inspiration Challenge

>> Tuesday, November 1, 2011

It's hard to believe that it is November all ready, but there is no doubt that fall has arrived.  Autumn is definitely my favorite time of year.  The turning leaves, crisp air, warm afternoon sunlight, pumpkins and apple pie... 

This month we have another gorgeous inspiration image that captures the focuses on one of the best things about this time of year - Thanksgiving! (and all the amazing food that usually accompanies that holiday):

 Here is what I was inspired to create:

Our wonderful designers have put together some amazing projects based on the inspiration photo.  Please visit each of their blogs to see their projects then come back to the Polkadot Door to vote for your favorite by leaving a comment and post your own entry.  We have some great prizes this month!
