Halloween Mini Pumpkins

Hello Friends!

I have been a busy girl these last 2 weeks.  I have a few irons in the fire at the moment, to say the least.  I have been creating for our upcoming Pampered Crafter's Retreat and have lots of projects that I just can't show yet as well as subbing at school and my drama club is up and running with 40 plus kids participating.  So I apologize for not visiting anybody or checking my emails in the last few weeks!  I will be running like crazy putting the finishing touches on everything but will catch up gradually.  In the meantime, my blog will be on auto pilot and sharing some projects with you.

Halloween is pretty big at my house and every year I always did crafty things with my kids.  One of their favorites things to do was to alter real mini pumpkins.  IO dies made it pretty quick and easy this year!

 Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
