Friday's are a wonderful thing! :)
After tonight, I'll have been to three pumpkin carving events this week! The reason is that tomorrow is Keene's Pumpkin Festival and everyone in town is gearing up for it. Last year we broke our town record and had 29,000 carved pumpkins registered and when it gets close to dusk, everyone chips in to light them. The scene is nothing short of spectacular!! Unfortunately, the organizers have said that this will be their last year organizing it. :( But we're hoping that the retailers in town will come through and bring it back next year.
Today's card is a bit of a tribute to my little Ray of Sunshine. She's insisting on wearing one of the dresses in her dress up box as her costume this year (unless we can persuade her otherwise this week). It's a wedding dress!! So this is what Syd will look like on Halloween, if she has her way.
Sydney, uh, I mean Princess Chloe is all dressed up and ready to Trick or Treat with all that glitter on her dress! I colored in the shadows on her dress with SU's Cool Caribbean, then added the glitter with a Quickie Glue pen. Once she was dry, I cut her out. The paper is from MME's Boo To You collection and I'm sorry, but I used more of that black glitter paper from Michaels! I flipped over my scalloped decorative scissors and cut around the circle panel to create that inverted scalloped edge. Each panel was sponged with Distress Inks and machine stitched to Bazzil cardstock. The sentiment is from Whipper Snapper. Can you believe I actually came up with this layout myself?!? I couldn't find a sketch that fit this week. Shocking isn't it?!! Hahaha
Got any plans for the weekend? Besides the pumpkin carving tonight and the Festival tomorrow, we'll be packing some more stuff up for the pending move. It's starting to sink in a little more that we'll actually own a house again. :) I'll be more excited the day of closing.
I'll be back in a little bit with my Etsy Friday Finds, but have a great weekend whatever it is you're doing!!
