Witch's Hat

I saw these the other day and I knew I had to make some. I used scraps of Retired Designer Halloween Paper I had on hand. These hats were quick and easy to make and they are just too darn cute not to share. Here is a great tutorial I found...I did make my circles a tad bit bigger as I didn't want to see the Peanut Butter Cups sticking out of the bottom of the hat. Yes, my OCD was kicking in...Enjoy!

Trick or Treat

More Trick or Treat Goodies are in the works for the kids to take to their Halloween Parties on Friday. I bought Mini Play Doh for Aiden and Adison's preschool class, used my favorite Halloween Stamp Set "Batty for You" to decorate them. I just matched up my SU ink to coordinate the color with the lids. This was very quick and easy....I even got the kids involved with layering and punching out the circles. I did have to use Sticky Strip to adhere them to the plastic lid, though. I also made a 2, 4, 6, 8 Acetate Box, which I filled with chocolate eye balls. I only ended up making one of these as I ran out of acetate....never fails! Then Ashton wanted to give out pencils to her class and I found these spider rings at Wal-mart that I thought would work great to hold the three pencils together. As I am sitting her right now I just remembered I have a cute spider stamp I could use to add a tag to each of the pencils sets...fun! I'll have to get right on that! I have lots more projects I have to get done before Friday....so, I better get busy!

Freaky Frankenstein Treats

I am finally starting to work on Halloween treats....we recovered from Ashton's bowling party last weekend and went right into the H1N1 flu. The twins got it Monday and took me down with them, I spent 3 days laying with them on the couch. I can honestly say we didn't move much! Ashton never got it and continued going to school, amazing! So, far no one in her class has come down with it....all the washing and hand sanitizer must be paying off. Way to go Mrs. Palczewski! The treats I made today are inspired by my chipboard Frankenstein treat boxes from last year. I decided to make goodie bags instead. These chocolate candy "body parts" are super hard to find this year, I used three candies per bag which works great. (Boxes took a whole bag) Plus these goodie bags are much quicker and as the Halloween Parties are fast approaching, I must move fast. Enjoy!

Cardstock: Pixie Pink, Lovely Lilac, Old Olive, Whisper White and Basic Black Ink: Old Olive, Pixie Pink Punches: 1", 1/2" & 3/4" Misc: SU Sponge Dobbers, Black Marker, White Gel Pen, Small Cello Bags, Top Note Sizzix Die.

Bowling T-Shirts

Bowling Shirts are complete and I LOVE them!!! My husband was so pleased he thought we needed to each wear one to the party. I can't wait to see my oldest daughter's face tomorrow morning, as I was having problems today getting the iron on's to print correctly and I was about to give up. I had today to get everything ready as I work tomorrow, I was really feeling the pressure. After I found the right software to download, which I was happy to discover was free, the process was simple. Yeah!! We decided to split the girls into teams and each girl will get a Green or White shirt depending on what team she'll be on. Each team will get awards and prizes, which I'm still in the process of working on. The goodie bags are finally together and I added a special laminated book mark for each of the girls with their name on it, with a cute little saying on the back thanking them for coming. It should be a fun day....I just hope Mom and Dad survive!

Bowling Party

Party planning is underway for Ashton's 8th Birthday Party. We decided after weeks of deliberating on a Bowling themed party, after last year I was determined to have a party away from the house! We don't any more accidents or incidents in 2009! I made the invites last night with my Circut and SU's circle 3/4 circle punch. I printed the details on the back and used my SU corner rounder...couldn't have been easier! I was happy with how they turned out. I just hope the T-shirts we are making for all the girls work out that nicely.

Scrapbooking Memories

Things have been a little shaky in our lives this year....we seem to go from one major event to another. I didn't post the last major event as I didn't want to really talk about it until we recovered, I'm happy to say on Friday our house is finally back together after yet another water incident. (If you didn't' know we flooded March 22nd) On August 22nd, our 12th anniversary I was making a special breakfast for the family. I asked our youngest daughter to bring up some milk, she came running upstairs yelling...."it's leaking downstairs?" My husband and I run downstairs to find water pouring through the ceiling...our dishwasher was dumping water!!! Needless to say our house has been riped apart once again, the worst part is I did loose a lot of scrapbooking stuff along with piles of pictures that were stacked on the bar to save them from the first flood. (Some that will never be replaced) I was sick! Many tears were once again shed! I haven't been able to focus on my Stamping as I once was, which I have been very sad about. So, when my girlfriend asked me to go to Medora, ND to scrapbook last weekend I had to say yes! I'm proud to say I finished my 6x6 scrapbook for my kids of our journey with raising chickens, it has been such a positive experience through a very difficult year and I wanted them to have something special to remember them by, years down the road. The kids were thrilled and I was ecstatic to enjoy some R&R with some wonderful people, doing what I love. Enjoy!
