Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Pumpkin Head Paper Doll

I probably shouldn't be posting this now, but, oh heck,
why not.   My paper doll  will be a feature on 
Halloween Gala on Oct 29th.  More details at the
end of the this post.
I also have listed the challenges that I'm entering this project in at the end.

I love the pumpkin face.  

This is the doll that inspired me.  Darn, I can't remember which magazine it in was now.

I know, this is pretty messy looking.  I used it for my basic pattern.

I used 13th Hour dp by Kaisercraft
Assorted buttons, clipart, ribbon and flower from my stash.

I have a confession, I ordered the Vinyl Silhouette set my mistake
but,  they aren't going to waste.  Beside the above project I used another one
to make this really simple card.

for another post titled 
Halloween in 10 Minutes or Less.
You can find more on Halloween in 10 Minutes or less at
Crafting with OWSE
This is the cat silhouette and another sheet from 13th Hour.

Just a bit about the upcoming Halloween Gala
