Pumpkin Carving

There is another two-page layout that I created during the virtual crop last weekend at ScrapCity. This was another challenge where we were challenged to use five patterned papers and NO cardstock. I always use cardstock, so this one was tough for me!


Luckily, I had some great Halloween papers I hadn't used yet. Most of them are American Traditional Designs. The two silly pumpkins on each page were also cut from a sheet of patterned paper. I love how the one on the left side looks like he's looking at my girls!! Too funny.


Nothing like digging right in and getting pumpkins guts all over you! So gooey!


Just one jack-o-lantern, but he turned out pretty good! He looked even better with the candle burning inside him.

Well, I'm off to take some Advil, because I have a monster headache. When my headache goes away a little, I'm going to work again on the scrapbook I was hired to make. I got 10 pages done yesterday. Most of them are pretty simple pages, but with the amount of photos I'm going to be scrapping, I'm going to need to keep it simple, or else I'll never get done!

Have a GREAT weekend everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
