Boo Babies

You all remember when Laura over at Just For Love
posted her cute Butternut Squash Ghosts?

Well, I just thought they were ADORABLE!

And that week, I picked up a few Butternut Squash on my next grocery trip.
And my family thought I was out of my mind!

Long story short:
Butternut Squash is actually part of the NUT family,
NOT the squash family,
And, YES,  I had a terrifying experience.

But those ghost's were SO cute!

So, I painted up my Butternut Squashes with some white acrylic paint...
Then I layered on some Extreme Glitter Paint in Hologram...
(Have I mentioned that this stuff might be on my Top 10 Crafter's Necessity list??)
Then I cut up some spooky vinyl eyes with my faithful Cricut... 
(I fall more in love with my Cricut every time I use it)
And then the "B-O-O" with the Cricut and
B-O-O Babies
