Halloween treats

My second post of the day... Yes it is :)

I wanted to get these uploaded so I could share some inspiration for Halloween that is coming in just over a month!

Here are my little treat bags

 The little ghost is from Create A Critter 2
There was a few images available to cut free for a week on CCR, I took advantage & get the cute guys ready for my bags!

Happy Halloween was heat embossed with a stamp from the $1.50 bin at Michaels from last year

The twine is all from Trendy Twine - 3 of the new colors, all part of the 'licorice' line
Lime licorice
Grape licorice
Grey licorice

The chevron print bags I bought from Pick your Plum 
I was able to fit 3 Halloween sized treats in each bag!

Till next time,

My baby girl's 9th Birthday!

Saturday we spent the day preparing for our big party....

We went with a 'sweet shop' theme.... 

Here are the highlights....

 My 12 year old drew the gumball machine & I punched a whole lot of 1" circles to make the gumballs.
 Here is the craft we made... gumball machines - I got the idea from pinterest
 Here is the cute shirt I made her for her party :)
 Her guests...
 A little thank you...
 And some more candy....
We had an amazing time!!

Till next time...

Birthday Party Invites

About a week ago I thought I should start getting birthday stuff in the making. First on the list, invitations!

After a little time of thinking about what I was going to do, I began the process. I started with the banner, added some blueberry Trendy Twine. I though a 9 stamp would be a great touch, so on went the 9 from Pink By Design. I cut the edge with a scalloped border punch, added 3 different washi tape from Pick Your Plum. I finished it off with some glittered 'You're Invited'.

 The inside I stamped from 'party time' in Melon Mambo - Stampin' Up! & added little lollipops from Mickey & Friends Cricut Cart.
Hope you like it as much as I do. 

I can't wait for my little girl to see then tomorrow & let me know if she loves them - I know she will :)
We still have a lot of planning to do & some serious shopping to get all of our craft stuff. I'll let you try & figure out what her theme is......

Till next time - J
