carve pumpkins

Pumpkin carving pretty much tops our list of favorite activities  for autumn as a family - yes, we set aside a Saturday in October when we grab pumpkins (either from a local farm or grocer) and carve them together as a family. Time goes into choosing a personal design, and as the years pass, we have to help the boys less and less.

It's always fun to see their creativity shine through when we're finished!

I have loved this Halloween collection from Jenni for so long, it was amazing to have the opportunity to work with it this year! The navy blue is the perfect compliment to the bright orange, and by adding just a few neutral sheets from the Haven and Modern Mercantile collections, my page just pops with that dark photo... A few touches of orange ink to the alterable alphas and remember this sticker, and I just love how this came out.

Do you have any traditions surrounding autumn activities or pumpkin carving?
Pin It!
