( 9) Peter Pumpkin Halloween Scene

This little guy is so much fun to create a little scene around. I love adding glitter pen stars too. :O) Missed you yesterday (sorry no post) ;O). I had a great time with my sweet Mom though. I'm going to miss her madly. My grandma & brothers too (and aunts...uncles...cousins...) Isn't family the greatest blessing?


These all come in the Paper Garden Projects "Happy Halloweenie!" kit:
