    Pumpkin Carving

    Just curious if anyone knew of a good ISU realted template that would be fun to carve in a pumpkin? Last year I did Scooby Doo and it actually turned out pretty well! but it took way too much time and a lot of cursing.

    Re: Pumpkin Carving

    I'm not sure. I've thought about it. I was wondering the same thing.

    I found some on starwars.com that I'm going to do.

    Yeah, I know I'm a dork.

    Re: Pumpkin Carving

    i actually made the kicking cy last year. i just drew the picture, used the poker deal from the stencil kit you can buy, and used my imagination about what to cut out and what to leave. it ended up looking pretty sweet and i kept it from last year to use again. maybe try to scan it and post it on here later
