Turning the page

It's almost time to turn that page on the calendar. Pretty soon the pumpkin patch (which really isn't a "patch" because we don't grow pumpkins very well in the south) will be full of pumpkins. My little one loves to go there every year. Fall fun...

We have several birthday's at our home this time of the year also. My son celebrated his a few weeks ago. I created this page using Cosmo Cricket's Hello Sunshine papers. It's such a versatile and fun collection.




And here's a little set that is in the October issue of Crafts 'n Things. This Owl Card and Treat Bag is a great little gift for Halloween. And the owl shapes were made using the Cricut machine and the George Basic Shapes cartridge. The owl's head is an upside down heart (with the point cut off). You can see the ovals, circles and other shapes I used to assemble this little creature.

I used Basic Grey Mellow, some Sassafrass Lass and some SEI papers for this. If you use this idea and make an owl with your cricut - I'd LOVE to see them, so link them here.

I'm off to work on some Lime Tart projects. Stay tuned for sneak peeks! Have a wonderful day and don't forget to turn that calendar page!
