The GREAT PUMPKIN Blog Hop : Day 2

Hello, and WELCOME to the The GREAT PUMPKIN Blog Hop!!  We're so excited that you could join us for this WONDERFUL two-day hop!!  Please be sure to visit BOTH days for maximum ideas, maximum FUN, and maximum chances to WIN!!  Our hostess, Amy has some SUPER prizes for a few hoppers, so be sure to check out all of those details on her blog!!

If you have hopped here from Linda's blog, then you have arrived at the perfect spot in the pumpkin patch!!  If you are just popping in to visit, please take a trip back to Amy's Blog to start at the beginning -- with all the pumpkins in the patch, you'll want to be sure to see them all!!

For my project, I created a layout about my kids' FAVORITE Pumpkin activity, carving them! I personally I am not a huge fan, I hate the gooey guts! But, as a Mom, it is one of many things I do for my kiddos that I would rather skip! lol  I used 2 bear patterns from Treasure Box Designs and made the carving pumpkins myself.  For the smaller ones I used a Sizzix die.  My fave part is the "guts" I made using some funky fibers!

NOW, onto my blog candy!!  I will have for ONE lucky hopper, a grab bag of goodies from my stash of prizes!  All you have to do is become a follower of blog and leave me some love and "Like" my fan page, CBC Scrapbooking and leave a comment saying you are hopping along! :) If you are already a fan and/or follower, just leave me some love! :) I will announce the winner on Monday on my fan page.  Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my project! Have a Scrappy Day! :)
