I loooove Halloween!! I just canNOT resist those adorably round, plump, oh-so-orange, PUMPKINS!!! That's right, pumpkins! I don't know why, but I am drawn to pumpkins! I wait all year long for those beautiful globes of orange to grow, and I get so, so excited when I see my first glimpse of chubby orange goodness, that symbol of Fall, Halloween & all the family moments strewn across the Holiday's... that first peek just makes my soul glow with anticipation of what's to come in the following months!

Or.... maybe it's because my Birthday is two days after Halloween?!?! ;) :l Whatever the reason... Halloween is IT for me! And, there is nothing else that symbolizes Halloween better than CARVING A PUMPKIN!!! Are you all ready to dig in to the ooey, gooey goodness?! Here goes!! :((


You MUST use the Pumpkin Template provided
You MAY use the Jack-O-Lantern pieces I have supplied, but you do NOT have to! Feel free to get creative and go for your own look here!
You MAY NOT just upload the sample pumpkin I included as your entry... that just wouldn't be fair, now would it?! ;) I included the sample for your own pleasure, to use in your personal projects if you so wish... :)
You can CARVE your pumpkin any way you wish, but you can most certainly reference & use my ENGRAVING TUTORIAL (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8058) found here to help you out
Entries must be uploaded to the Carve-A-Pumpkin! (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1192) Gallery by midnight EST, Nov. 3rd (I'll get that linked as soon as the gallery gets set up)
Public Poll will be put up first thing in the AM on Nov. 4th and the Winner will be announced Saturday, Nov. 6th
Winner will receive $5 to theStudio

I think you're feeling a little bit too much love for the pumpkins :))

Oh, Barb... don't get me started on my love affair with pumpkins.... :XX I think I passed on my obsession to my daughter, she seems to love them just as much as I do!! LOL! :DD

I was going to try to make this similar to the real pumpkin I just carved last night, but I used a Tim Burton look and it has a stitched mouth similar to your element, mouth shape was slightly different. Hummm . . . Cool contest!
