I lost the Halloween pumpkin carving party that we attended on Friday – but I'm not bitter. I did not go into debt to purchase the pumpkins.
My goal was to carve a "$" sign into the pumpkin. Things were going great, until I chopped out the bottom section that was supporting the top section. The end result? A mangled pumpkin. So I turned it around and came up with this creative carving.
Yes – I carved it upside down. It is about the most creative I can get – after all, I am a degreed engineer. If it isn't straight lines and symmetrical, I'm way out of my comfort zone!
My daughter's pumpkin came out nice! Here is her pumpkin – no knives allowed just yet!
And here is Jenn's!
The next picture is the pumpkin that won the contest.
And for your viewing pleasure, here are the other entries.
