Carving Pumpkins

My cousin has two little ones, 4 and almost 2. You've seen layouts of them before. I was so excited to have them over yesterday to carve pumpkins. I had everything set up in the sunroom.. a drop cloth, several cute pumpkins just their size, spoons, and other fun carving and scooping things for them to use. The camera batteries were charged. I was ready for some great photo ops and fun times.

Then, the screaming started.

OMG. They *hated* it. As soon as the ooey gooey pumpkin guts came out, the kids went running. My cousin and I made the best of it and carved a couple pumpkins by ourselves and eventually the kids came back in the room to LOOK at them. Disappointed, but oh well. I got a couple pictures.

I used one on the Artful Delight sketch:

This is a picture of dear little Lucy, tentatively peering over my cousin's shoulder. Isn't her pumpkin awesome? She's got skills!

I used my new-to-me Martha Stewart punch around the page spider punch. I cut my pumpkins from The Digi Bistro's "Pick Your Poison" set and stamped a Peachy Keen face on them.

I'm also entering this layout in Amanda's "Get Scrappy" challenge.

Hope you had a fabulous weekend! I did ;)
