You Capture - Orange

When I saw what this weeks theme was I knew it would have something to do with Halloween.  But I never expected to be taking these pictures though.

A few months ago my friend asked me to help her make polymer clay pumpkin place card holders for her friend's wedding that is on Halloween.  She called me Tuesday and asked me if I could come over on Wed and make them.  So yesterday I went over to her house armed with my tools.  I arrived at 9:30am and we had a marathon pumpkin making session.  When I left her house at 9:30pm last night we had all of them made, but she still had to bake all of them and add the veil to the bride and glue the flowers on the bride's head. 
I returned to her house this morning after I dropped Lily off at her last pre-school class to have a mini photo session with the pumpkins.  Glad they cooperated.  ;)
 



We made an army of pumpkins.  There are 98 pumpkins total, including the bride and groom.
All finished and ready to be dropped off at the bride's house.
My hands still hurt and I am still exhausted.  Definitely going to bed early tonight. 

On another note: I am giving away a minnie or mickey ornament, here.  (ending sometime Friday)

PhotobucketGo on over to I Should Be Folding Laundry to see other You Capture's for this week.
I am also linking to these fabulous parties, here.
