Pumpkin Craft Day!

I just love Fall :)  Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins!   Two weeks ago I emailed some of my neighbor friends to ask if they wanted to come over for crafty day and they said yes!  Everyone brought a little something for lunch and we ate some yummy food.

Then it was crafty time.  I instructed everyone to get some craft pumpkins and duck tape.  We had a few different shapes of pumpkins as well as duck tape patterns.

Here are some shots albeit terrible since lighting was not great in my room but you'll get the 'picture'.
 Gretchen, Marion and Christine starting to layer on the tape

 Dolores with her finished pumpkin!

 The girls looking happy that it was over! LOL

 Gretchen and I with ours

A surprise one too! 

 And here is the whole mass of them!

I had some tape left over and needed to wrap up a quick gift.  The duck tape worked PERFECTLY as wrapping paper!  And the added zebra ribbon finished it off :)

I also put together this YUUUUUUMMMMMYYYYY dessert that I found
Ultimate Apple Snicker Nachos!!!!!!!

We had a really fun afternoon! And there wasn't even wine involved!!!!!!!

I think I'm going to enter my gift box into the CASology Challenge#16 "WILD"

Thanks for your visit!
