Here is my project for this challenge:

Yup -- I made Halloween candy toppers!! Aren't they just too cute????  I made them for the students in my Aikido children's class.  I like to make them something different every year.

I had seen the Frankenstein image on a couple of other sites but they all used a Sizzix die which I don't have :(  So I took a look at our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and figured out a way to make it that way - yeah!!

Here's a breakdown of cuts:

Frankenstein body/hair:  page 53, D3, < Square4 > cut at 2 1/2" (Olive and Black Carstock)
Pumpkin:  page 32, B2, < Oval2 > cut at 1 1/4" x 2 1/4" - using Fit to Length key (Sunset Cardstock)
