Orange, orange, and more orange.

It’s almost Halloween time, which means our house is decked out in orange! (This makes me miss my orange cat, Hoshi. I wish he was here.)

I’m really excited about the pumpkin lights that we hung in our patio. You can see them when driving up to our home, and it totally lights up our whole patio! …And not to mention, it’s fun to be festive during the holidays!

Although it’s not quite yet Halloween, we carved our Half Moon Bay pumpkins because our upcoming week is busy with work and home improvement plans. Carving pumpkins was tons and tons of fun. It was totally worth the mess, and we are totally satisfied with the way our pumpkins turned out. To keep it simple, I just carved out a simple funny-faced pumpkin, whereas Gloria wanted to be an “expert.” She decided to do the haunted house design; it turned out fabulously! Maui also has her own pumpkin. Here are some pictures to share:

I also had the chance to dig into more of the scrapping goodies I recently bought. I scrapped away and got a few layouts done! I finished my upcoming layout for Pink Sketches – Sketch #12, so make sure to check back this Sunday for my finished layout. Also, you’re going to want to see all the other amazing work from the rest of the Pink Sketches DT! Here are a couple of others I got done:

I totally need some sleep now. It’s so late.
