Almost Halloween!

This flu has knocked me around so much since we’ve arrived back from holidays that the only decorations we’ve put up for Halloween is those that thankfully I impulsively bought one Saturday before we left.

Another non-event were the painted pumpkins I had planned to do and unfortunately bought two days after arriving home. I was so inspired by these pumpkins we saw in Quebec City last year that I wanted to do the same the same, albeit on a smaller scale, on our front stairs.

Sadly by the time I realized what day it was tonight and asked the children to paint the pumpkins, three had already been carved with another three having to go in the garbage collection this morning, leaving me only two. As you can see though, they did the job!

Halloween SU Pumpkins - not just paper crafting!

The orange glitter I’ve used is that offered in the Holiday Catty. How good do these pumpkins look? Goes to show you that Stampin’ Up! products are not just for paper products! This is the glitter you’ll find on page 20.

 Now I have just have to challenge myself to use these two glitters in a non-Halloween manner… just. Happy Halloween everyone – wishing you all a stress-free trick or treating time!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
