Halloween Creations

I enjoy picking out and embellishing little treats for the girls to give their friends on holidays. Here is how we spread the Halloween spirit this year...

Cutie Patootie took large autumn shaped suckers for her friends at preschool. I punched out a tag and added a little glitter. Then I tied on some Halloween ribbon. She was so excited to hand them out at the party! She took her teacher one of my handmade cards and a jumbo chocolate candy bar.

For Wild Child's class I used some wedding favor tins I got on clearance at Walmart a couple years ago. I am trying to use my "stash" before I buy anything else...my supply baskets are running over! I added a couple punched circles from Halloween paper I have had FOREVER! Then of course...I added a little glitter to each one...and filled them with pumpkins and candy corn. Wild Child signed a tag on the bottom of each one.
I actually made 11 cards, but realized I did not take a picture AFTER they were all sealed in their envelopes. In 2008 I participated in a swap of 3" deco squares. These were perfect for putting on the front of a card. I simply inked the edges and/or added some spooky ribbon. The above cards are for the bus driver and Wild Child's teacher.

Wild Child also took the bus driver and her teacher a Hershey's chocolate bar all dressed up! These are simple and fun to make. I think I may do this with a Christmas theme for all of our neighbors!

The last thing I completed was a layout for a "Fall Colors" theme challege at Scrap Sisters Studio. This little guy was our foster son a couple years ago. He stayed with us for almost 2 years and we struggled with the decision to adopt him. Several issues prevented the adoption from happening. It was so stressful and still haunts me. Some of you probably remember reading my posts about it. He is adopted to a very nice family who lives about 1-2 miles down the road from us.
Tonight is Trick or Treat and a parade for us! I am dressing up too! FUN! BOO!
PS...Tonight is Beverly Hills Housewives! You can catch all the episodes starting at 8:00pm est...with the new episode beginning at 10:00 pm est. Just spreading my addiction...lol.
