So onto the projects, these placecards were designed on my Gypsy and cut with my Cricut. I used Blackletter solutions cartridge for the orangle shape, Gypsy Wanderings fopr the word Thanks and Don Juan for Give. The orange and leaf paper were from my stash and the brown is Stampin Up Chocolate Chip. I just scored it on the bottom to make a little stand for it. These placemats were made by the kids. I used my Nestabilities to cut out the scalloped circle and let the kids cut the feathers out of scraps from my stash. We added a hand cut beak, some google eyes and my daughter drew on all the legs.
This is a picture of the decorated table. I used paper that my husband uses for masking off the floors to prepare for texturing the walls (he's a drywall contractor) and placed a jar of crayons on the table for the kids to color with. Turns out the adults had more fun with that as they all played hangman while eating pie. I wish I had a picture of it after that. The pumpkin in the center was one my son made last year in school, but is basically just fabric stuffed around and into a roll of toilet paper.
