Well fall is DEFINITELY in the air here in London, ON. Fall jackets are out of storage and shorts are put away officially. Ahhh, so sad. BUT - that means Halloween is nearly here! I always said I would never be one of "those" mothers for my child. You know the type - who make the beautiful "Martha Stewart" type cupcakes for every class event. And the ones who send home the gorgeous hand-made gifts. Well, unfortunately for me, my competitive nature has started to get the better of me! And I fear I am becoming one of "those" mothers.
I've also created this little treat box for High Hopes Challenge #119 - Party Favor. Be sure and go over there and check it out! What a fun challenge to join - and a great chance to win some awesome, awesome High Hopes stamps of your choice (did you see the STUNNING snowmen just released? GORGEOUS!)!
Also - be sure to check out the October special to save 20% off!! Who doesn't love a sale!! This fantastic deal runs October 1 through 7 - so be sure to check it out!
Here is our Halloween treat basket we're making for Sam's classmates this year! I love an opportunity to make any kind of box or basket. It's a nice change from cards and always looks so cute. This one I found on splitcoast and is called "Maria's treatbox". Very nice and quick to make. Thanks Maria! I think I'll be using this one again.
I've used High Hopes angel bear pumpkin (seriously - how cute? all my favourite things in one - bear, angel AND pumpkin!). I've stamped him on Copic XPress It and coloured in Copics. And I've finally used this gorgeous paper I bought last month: The Apothecary Emporium Collection 6X6 Paper Pad by Echo Park.
After making a few of these, I must admit - I think it's time to upgrade to a Scor-Pal finally!!
Happy Halloween (almost)!
and Happy Stamping!
