We Carved Pumpkins Today

This morning we had to go and pick-up my mum from the airport. The original time for her to land was 11.00 a.m., but when I checked at 10.15 a.m., just before we were leaving, it said it was scheduled to land at 10.32 a.m. Oops!! Better hurry. Of course as ever, the M25 was jam packed, even during half term. We arrived just after 11.00 a.m. at the arrival hall, and even though she did land that early, she hadn't come through customs yet.

When we got home, we had lunch and straight after that we carved our pumpkins which we bought on Monday. We got our templates of the Pumpkin Lady website. I purchased them from there last year as well, but couldn't find them anywhere anymore on any of the computers. But who would want to carve the same pattern twice in a row? So we all did something different again. Here's a collage of our creativeness:

Click on the image to enlarge it. It's the first time I've used Picasa to create this collage, but I'm not sure if I like it.

Also as promised my Halloween card I created a couple of days ago:

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Patterned Paper + Die-Cuts + Ribbon: Making Memories, Embossing folder: Cuttlebug, White Marker: Kikki.K, Vellum, Die-Cut Machine: Silhouette.

By the way, Rebecca's party was fun yesterday. The girls loved creating their bears and dressing them. Afterwards we were meant to go to TGI Friday's, but they had a problem with the toilets and couldn't serve any customers. We decided to go to Pizza Express instead. Only good it was a Tuesday night, because I think we might have struggled to find somewhere else on a Friday or Saturday evening.

Until next time.

Hi. I think that the collage looks nice. And also you made beautiful carvings. In our family, it is kind of ritual since children were small. From year to year the carvings looks better and better and it's big fun and great time spent together. Hope you enjoyed it also like that.

Happy Halloween,

Great pics, Lisette. These will do well on a layout. *hint* Too bad we don't celebrate Halloween over here. Although we could carve pumpkins of course.

Hi Lisette...I often visit your blog but never leave comments. I just had to say that those are fabulous pumpkins, and while I love the collage, I just wish I could see the 'birds on a wire' pumpkin up close! Your blog is always inspiring, I love your style and your endless creativity!
