I'm sure this belongs somewhere else... but since this is where I post I really wanted to share. I carved this pumpkin tonight to look like Sofia! The picture of her was when she was probably 6 months old... and now she's 20 months! But now her hair is SO curly I thought that would have been too hard!<br>
What do you think?? Isn't it funny?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/StrawHatBrat/pumpkin-and-picture.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...nd-picture.jpg</a>

That's really good! I have a friend who carves pumpkins every year, including portrait-type ones like you did. I'm amazed at what you can do with a pumpkin.<br><br>
I'm very impressed! (Even if it's not a diaper... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )

Wow! That's so cool - I'm impressed. How long did that take?<br><br>
We're doing lazy pumpkins tonight. We bought the kit with tools and patterns. I'm saving my creative juices for something like diapers or knitting, LOL!

You've been moved! Argh! I know moderators are people too...<br>
But it's like some invisible monster just comes and plucks people up and away.<br><br>
It's a beautiful pumpkin. I want to carve some so beautiful!<br>
How do you do it?

wow, that is so great! Do you just shave a few layers off to get the light to shine thru ???<br>
I am so boring with pumpkins, triangle eyes and a toothy grin is all I do. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
