Pumpkin patch

Good morning Bloglanders

I hope you had a fab weekend.  Today I'm sharing my only Halloween project. 

Yes, down under in sunny SA we don't do the Halloween thing.  Such a pity as there is a new paper range from October afternoon called Witch Hazel!!  I'm always up for a challenge and  ordered the paper BUT it will become my husband's Xmas mini.  I'm sure he will love it!

Seeing is believing!! Anyway, I'll probably receive it very near to Xmas but in the meantime I decided to do some mini, mini Halloween treat packs as we do have children coming by to ask for a "treat".  I decided to use The Play Date Cafe colors as inspiration:

Out came all my scraps - very, very old Creative Memories paper that I don't think I'll ever use.

As you see I decided to use the strawberry die that I won some time ago and have not used at all.  To show you what it looks like if you do a strawberry, I made this one:

And this is what my adapted strawberries a la pumpkins look like:

I just cut slits into the strawberry bottom, folded it in and glued it together.  Now I have nice and rounded pumpkin bottoms.

As I've used The Play Date Cafe for color inspiration, I'll submit my project to their weekly challenge. If you want to hop over to see the rest of the entries, click here.

I'll be back here tomorrow to share some creative fun.  Have a marvellous Monday.
