Pumpkin Fest

We continued the tradition and went to Pumpkin Fest. It was chilly but we managed to carve some pumpkins and enjoy the festivities. Don't know if we broke the record yet - need to wait until 10/31 and watch Pumpkin Wars on HGTV

Birthday LO

Pirate Birthday LO
For Maddox's 6th birthday we had a family and friends party at the house. I was pretty crafty for this one - I made the invitation, the food, and even made some bleach t-shirts.

The Indie Art cartridge was my go-to staple for the skull and cross bones (both on this LO and for the bleach t-shirt)

The paper is from the DCWV All About Boys paper stack.

The title was cut with SCAL.

Christmas Cookie LO

Christmas Cookies!
The letters were cut out with SCAL and then some faux stitching was added to each letter to give some visual interest.
The shapes were cut with the Cricut Gingerbread cartridge. I used a Nestabilities scalloped circle die to cut the red circle behind the picture. I outlined it with a white gel pen.
The final perfect touch is a picture of Rileigh and Maddox in the midst of cookie decorating (or rather cookie dough eating).
