Thank you, i hope everyone is getting their pumpkins carved out !!

I don't believe in Halloween - but my OH does and is carving his pumpkin this year (or so he says).

Thanks for this Saxo - even if we don't enter :giggle:

Maybe people who enter could put a handwritten note with their username in the pic too? Just so people don't win unfairly by googling images etc...

For all those posting pics of their carvings don't you have to put your user name on a piece of paper or something and include it in the pic ?

If you have won 1st 2nd or 3rd, id like you to take a photo of your name with the pumpkin so i know its yours :w00t:

Carved by Jelli Junior (age 9) - whether you can see it or not, it's supposed to be ScoobyDoo in a Wizards hat

wow very nice

Original Poster

Whats lighting that up jelli? a thousand candles? lol

that's the strange thing - it's only 2 half used old nightlights!! Whilst tinkering round with my camera, i found a setting 'candlelight' ....[SIZE="1"]think i'd better have another look in the instruction manual! [/SIZE]

That's really good Jelli :thumbsup:

Thanks Fire - he was really chuffed to have done it on his own, but after i showed him the photo of his work on this thread, he went off to school with a grin from one ear to the other - bless!

Aww bless him, he won't let you throw it away when it starts rotting :giggle:

thank God i took the photo last night, 'cos the hat was starting to wilt into the middle, and when i tried to pin it in place with a cocktail stick, my fingers stuck into a mushy bit - Mmm niiice!

Apparently vaseline is good for stopping shrinking & a mild bleach solution stops them rotting as fast!
