It's that time of year when the harvest has been brought in and things begin to go bump in the night. My first make for our Halloween/Harvest challenge is a combination of the 2....a pumpkin Halloween tag. 

I don't think he's too scary is he? If you are not frightened off you can find a step by step of how I made my tag over on my blog here. I used Tim Holtz' awesome distress foundry wax and seasonal distress mica crayons...really fun products.
