TMC Pumpkin Contest

TMC has a Pumpkin Decorating Contest every year.  I was very excited to participate this year.  So excited, in fact, that I started way too early.  I had a great idea for the theme of my pumpkin to be my favorite show, LOST.  But the more I thought about it, the more expensive it became.  So I decided to just do an island.  I painted my pumpkin over a week in advance and it rotted.  One part of my beach became a sink hole.  So I redid it the day before the contest.  And after all that work, I still lost.  The patrons voted.  The result of everyone's pumpkins was great.  So many creative ideas.
