The Great Pumpkin!

My sis & I went to the pumpkin patch at the Yellow Umbrella last weekend and she picked out a big, beautiful pumpkin, which we carved last night!

I selected a few fun templates from the Silhouette online store and Joy picked this cute owl from them. The template was cut on the Silhouette out of vinyl, which worked like a dream- we just stuck the vinyl shapes to the pumpkin and cut around them! Here's how it turned out:

Apart from his wonky eyes (guess I stuck 'em on crooked!) I think he turned out pretty good for my first pumpkin carving in several years! Fun!

I'd love to hear about your pumpkin carving adventures this year, or any autumn creations you've made with the Silhouette Machine!

That looks awesome Tara! Great job with your pumpkin! Bradley and I haven't done one either in a few years, we should get one today.
Thanks for the inspiration
