oct lo tag with a side of pumpkin

I wanted to share my Coraline inspired layout for SkrapnChat's October LO Tag.
I was so honored when they selected my "Too Too Tain" to kick off the tag. Being the first in line on my team I had to be creative as to not take away key elements but still keeping with the essence of the layout.

I was also looking for an excuse to pick up the Martha Stewart picket fence border punch that I had been eyeballing for quite some time. All I needed was the right layout and inspiration ;0)

And speaking of inspiration, not sure who our pumpkin is supposed to look like, but Maribel designed it all on her own =)

We had so much fun carving, cutting, scouping and making a wonderful mess. I even roasted the seeds and seasoned them with a savory seasoning mix. Mmm mmm! I forgot how much I loved pumpkin seeds!

To roast pumpkin seeds you preheat your oven to 325F and wash the seeds under cold water and separate them from the pulp. (I used a strainer to put the seeds into to give a final rinse) Spread them out onto a non stick cookie sheet in a thin layer and baste with the savory seasoning by mixing 4tbs butter, 1/2 tsp garlic salt and 2 tsp of worchestershire sauce. Bake for 25 min stirring them after 10 min. Remove from the oven a let cool.

*crunch* *crunch*
enjoy =)
