Carving Out Good Times Hop.

Welcome to Scrapping with Lisa's Designs Design Team Carving Out Good Times. In Lisa's store, she has two (2) files for Carving out Good Times - the bears  and the children . The Design Team has been challenged this month to do a two-page lay-out to showcase these designs.

If you have arrived from then your carving skills are wonderful, just watch out for those pumpkin seeds and the mush inside. If you have just came upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning, so you don't miss any sp0oky LO's, then please start at Lisa's.

I chose to use the children file because me and Princess Kiara was going to carve us a pumpkin. This was her first time and my second time ever carving pumpkins. She made a sign and named him Turtle Man. The I heart U pumpkin was from last year, my little brother helped me carve it. It was our first ever pumpkin. Was so fun sharing the experience with him.

Now let's get onto the LO. 

I printed the file as a PDF and even shrunk it , but as you can see my kids are huge, I was thinking I was going to need a 3 pager. HaHaHa. I used a sketch I have had on my PC forever. It seems it is from my scrapbook zone

Using Colorbok brights cardstock in purple I made my 2 back ground pages. I took a black in the same brand and used it as my "blocking". I also used a green from the brights stack as my photo mats. I inked around as much as I could with black, also around photos.  The file I printed on cream card stock and cut and pieced together. The pumpkin journal was from a swap and I am unsure of whom it was from.
