Jack O' Lantern Pumpkin Carving Album Page

Hubby carves pumpkin(s) for Halloween. Quite some time ago he carved real pumpkins but you cannot carve too far in advance or the pumpkin starts to rot. Tried carving & freezing once but the pumpkin did not defrost. So, now he carves styrofoam pumpkins that he can start in advance, I can keep and I can put a battery operated light inside. He has carved several Pirate theme since I'm a fan of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow & several pumpkins of characters Johnny Depp has played in other movies. You can see several of the pumpkins on my blog right sidebar. He has started the pumpkin for this year and I'll post when finished. Made this album page to create an album for photos of the carved pumpkins.

Used Stamping Emboss Resist Technique where I used Versamark ink to stamp the sentiment on glossy paper, used brayer to roll ink on stamped sentiment & wiped with kleenex.
