The Emoji Movie - Pumpkin Carving Templates #EmojiMovie #Halloween


In honor of the upcoming The Emoji Movie , why not try out these fun Pumpkin Carving Templates! Families can express themselves by carving with their favorite emoji character on their pumpkin! 

How cute is that? You can have a DIY night in – while you watch the film and carve pumpkins!   Go here to access the printable pumpkin carving templates and some fun coloring pages

The Emoji Movie arrived on Digital on October 10 and is arriving on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD October 24 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
  

I decided to take a different spin on my pumpkin and used a coloring page and some Sharpie markers to create an Emoji inspired pumpkin.   First you start off by printing a coloring sheet from here.


Cut out the design and then on the back of the paper, using a pencil, color the line area dark.  This will make it like carbon paper!

Tape the design to your pumpkin and trace out the design with a sharp pencil.   This will make your faux carbon paper transfer the design to your pumpkin.
Once you have your design on your pumpkin, just trace over it with your Sharpie makers!



Easy and fun for the entire family!

Pumpkin Inspired Graham Cracker & Peanut Butter Pops #Recipe #Halloween


These graham cracker pops are adorable to present for the Fall season and are incredibly easy to make!  They are perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving or any Fall get together!


Graham Cracker & Peanut Butter Pops



Ingredients:
  • 1-1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 to 12 standard-sized crackers)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese (about half a cup)
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1.5 cups orange candy melts
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Lollipop sticks
  • ¼ cup melted chocolate
  • Green icing
Yields: 15 to 20 1-inch pops

Instructions:
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, cream cheese and peanut butter. Mix until you achieve a fairly sticky consistency. If you feel like your mixture is still too dry, continue adding peanut butter, one tablespoon at a time.
      
  2. Roll graham cracker mixture into one-inch balls and place on your lined baking sheet.
      
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave your candy melts for about 30 seconds. Stir in coconut oil and microwave for another 30 seconds.
        
  4. With the help of a fork, dip and coat your graham cracker balls in the melted candy. Let them set on your lined baking sheet.
       
  5. Place a lollipop stick into each graham cracker ball. With the help of another lollipop stick (or a toothpick), carefully dab on some melted chocolate at the end of the lollipop stick (the end that meets that graham cracker treat).
     
  6. Using a piping bag, pipe green icing on top, giving them a “swirly” shape – these will act as your pumpkins’ leaves.
  7. Place in the refrigerator until set (about 20 to 30 minutes). Enjoy!

2 Beanies for $22 + FREE SHIPPING



 
With winter quickly approaching, there’s one item we can’t live without:  beanies! Cents of Style's selection of beanies will not only keep you warm, they’ll keep you looking good, too. They're so on trend, you’ll definitely want to wear them even when it’s not cold outside (especially on those days when doing your hair is optional....). Pom poms, florals, buttons, colorful knits; you name it, they got it! With the wide variety and this killer deal (just $11 for each beanie!), you will want to keep coming back for more!

2 for Tuesday - 10/17/17 - 2 Beanies for $22 + FREE SHIPPING w/code 2FORBEANIES17
The code is 2FORBEANIES17 and it will make the final price $22 when 2 beanies are purchased! That makes each beanie just $11. The code is valid Tuesday, 10/17 only.
 

Style Tips:
  • For a casual yet feminine look, wear your beanie with side-swept hair. Part your hair on whichever side you prefer, and brush almost all of your hair over you one side. If you have shorter hair, use pins and hairspray to help keep your hair to the side.
  • Try wearing your beanie higher on your head and off your forehead. This style is great if you want to show off your hair or have bangs you want to flaunt. Just fold over the excess material on the back of your head to give you a relaxed, laid-back vibe.
  • Hair too messy to leave down? Try a quick braid and top it off with your favorite beanie! You can also try this with a low ponytail or a low messy bun.
  • If you have shorter hair, try tucking it all into your beanie for more of a unique look. This is also great for those days that you want your hair out of your way.

Spookley the Square Pumpkin out on Blu-ray for the 1st time! #Giveaway (3 winners)

Everybody’s favorite square pumpkin is now the “Pick of the Patch” this Halloween season. For the first time ever, SPOOKLEY THE SQUARE PUMPKIN can be yours to own in High Definition – available in a new Blu-ray Combo pack and on Digital HD from Cinedigm.

SPOOKLEY THE SQUARE PUMPKIN, written and created by Joe Troiano, tells the story of a square pumpkin living in a round pumpkin patch on Holiday Hill Farm. Although Spookley initially faces ridicule from his fellow patch-mates, he goes on to save the day during a terrible storm. As a result, all the pumpkins in the patch learn that the things that make you different make you special.


The animated television special, based on the bestselling Spookley book series, has been a long time Halloween tradition for families, and will once again be broadcast this October on Disney Junior.

This year, Spookley the Square Pumpkin also returns as the "Official Spokes-Pumpkin" of National Bullying Prevention Month through a partnership with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. PACER, a non-profit organization based in Minneapolis, provides innovative resources for students, parents, educators, and others, and recognizes bullying as a serious community issue that impacts education, physical and emotional health, and the safety and well-being of students.  For more information on Spookley’s activities with PACER, visit: www.PACER.org/Bullying/
PROGRAM SYNOPSIS
In a world where the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins, Spookley is teased because of his square shape. Shunned by the other pumpkins, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince him that, square or not, he has a right to be the Pick of the Patch. But Big Tom and Little Tom, the pumpkin bullies in the patch, continue to tease and taunt Spookley. Encouraged by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley tries his best, but he isn’t sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens Holiday Hill Farm. When the storm blows the round pumpkins across the patch towards the raging river, Spookley realizes it is up to him and his square shape to save the day.

BLU-RAY COMBO PACK BONUS FEATURES INCLUDE 5 EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PICTURE BOOKS*:
The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin
The Legend of Beacon the Bright Little Firefly
The Legend of JellyBean and the Unbreakable Egg
The Legend of Lyla the Lovesick Ladybug
The Legend of Mistletoe and the Christmas Kittens

*not available in HD

I love this movie, we watch it every year when it is on TV.    The kids and I just watched it the other night .  One Day in the Pumpkin Patch, the strangest little pumpkin hatched...Spookley the Square Pumpkin was different. In a world where "The only good pumpkins are round pumpkins!", Spookley is shunned by the other pumpkins until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire patch. As the storm rages, Spookley proves that being different can save the day. "It's fine to be round while the weather is fair, but there are times it's better to be a square!" Spookley  reminds us all that it's okay to be different.

Three lucky readers (US Only) will each win Blu-ray+DVD Combo plus a Spookley plush.  Please wait for the Rafflecopter to load:
