Happy Birth-o-ween and Sneak Preview

Happy Halloween! 23 years ago today, I gave birth to a 9 lb, 1 oz boy! We called him our pumpkin! It's been fun over the years celebrating on a very busy and fun holiday. I always make a spider cake and usually make a spider card, too. This year is special since we've missed celebrating the last two birthdays with him in person. 

Here you can see the cute and "spooky" spider hanging from his web. I thought making him Gumball Green was a little scarier than black. And those google eyes are funny! Enjoy your day and your night. I hope you are dressing up and having a scaring good time! BOO!

Join me and the Pals Paper Arts design team for another fun challenge tomorrow! Plan on playing along, won't you?
