"Cute as a Pumpkin?"

Today was Trick-or-Treat for Unicef at the high school where I work. I dressed as a pumpkin, and gave out candy for all the kids who donated to the cause. I love dressing up and having fun, don't you? Now, for the classic question...Does this outfit make me look fat???

A Season of Thanks

Last night I made a quick and gorgeous project that I just had to share with all of you. I used one of the new Decor Elements that Stampin' Up! carries and a piece of Designer Paper (retired) because it matched my room decor so well. I put it into a shadow box frame and added a few dried leaves and gourds and voila...Beauty at a glance! I like it so much that I am sending a photo to Shelli, Stampin' Up!'s co-founder for her blog contest. Wish me luck!

This is a fun Designer Circle Bag that I made using of all things...a pot lid for the bag! I used some of the new Designer Paper from the mini catalog and new "In Colors" to make this bag and the 4 little cards that go in the bag. If you would like to have this little treasure, just book a party with me for November or December and it will be yours!

Trash to Treasure

This week's challenge was to transform some trash into a treasure. Well, I had just the ticket. I used a lotion bottle from a hotel and turned it into a treat for Halloween. I used the stamp set Batty for You along with some punches and the colors I used were...pumpkin pie, always artichoke, basic black and whisper white. I also used some of the new Ghostly Greetings DSP. I hope you enjoy!

My Boo Banner

I saw this cute Halloween "Boo" banner on last week and so I tweaked it and made one for me. I just love the colors and all the fun that goes with Halloween! I used the new Big Shot SU exclusive die cut to make the flags. The colors I used were whisper white, pumpkin pie, lovely lilac and basic black. The paper was some designer papers I found down in my basement. I made the spiders using punches and googlie eyes. I used chipboard letters and numbers from Stampin' Up! of course. I colored the chipboard with my SU markers.
