Too Much?

I have been accused by some in my family of going a little overboard in decorating for the holidays.  This afternoon, I realized that it just might be true. It has been a busy time at Gardenias and Glitter and with work, a hurricane and other obligations so I am really just getting around to my Halloween decorating.  When I saw that this week's challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is "Pumpkins", I knew just what I needed to finish decorating the bathroom. 

It is possible that I have gone just a little overboard when I decorated the soap dispenser!  

I bought the Target brand liquid "milk and honey" hand soap, primarily because of the yellow pump.  (Bonus- it smells good too!) I thought that would go best with the pumpkin theme.  I then cut the pumpkin from adhesive vinyl with the Cricut "Paper Doll Dress Up" cartridge. For extra embellishment, I cut a second one in green and cut off the vines and stem and added them to the pumpkin. I also "carved" the mouth a little wider with my Exacto knife.   Before adhering the pumpkin to the dispenser I cut a little yellow strip and placed it beneath the sticker so that it will "glow". I couldn't resist adding a little green ribbon that matches the stem and vines (although I don't know how long that will last when the soap is being used!). 

So whether I went a little too far or not in my decorating, this little pumpkin will make me smile when I wash my hands!

I will be joining the other fabulous crafters at the Pumpkin Challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog this week.  I want to extend another big "Thank You!" to the great staff over there- I won the challenge a couple of weeks ago with my Back to School Crafts post! 

I have so many fun October activities I hope to share with you in the next couple of weeks! Thanks for stopping by today!
