Big 'Ole Pumpkin

It's out of season but that's what I felt like doing.  The image sent me down memory lane...there's my buddy Susie and her hubby Mike who HAVE TO HAVE a huge, no not big, HUGE pumpkin.  One year the thing was bigger than my kid.  I have no idea how they ever got that thing to their home but it looked great on the lawn.  Pumpkins make great props.  There are some great pics of my daughter with pumpkins.  In New Jersey there were lots of fun fall things to do and pumpkins were always present but down here in Florida it's still pretty hot at that time of year and around here you don't see a lot of over the top decorations.  I miss that.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Mo Manning "The Big One"
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Kraft" cs; DCWV "Neutrals" cs; Simple Stories "Awesome" dp
miscellaneous - copics; mini brads; ribbon, buttons; charm; machine stitching
