Happy Wednesday!

What a fun day.  I actually went to my daughters school today and spent the day with her.  They are doing some a fun community event where the science department invites the community in to do science projects.  I know they will have a blast tonight.

We also had our first trick or treaters tonight.  Just some family so they came early.  What fun costumes they had on.  I'll share those pictures later. 

Tonight I was just to tired to do anything so wanted to share a lo I made with some beautiful new 7 Gypsies papers.

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Are you ready for the winter holidays?  I'm sure not, and actually still working on fall projects.  But I took a break from the spooky projects today to play along with the PTI blog hop. 

The Challenge:
There is always a lot of focus on Christmas in our industry this time of year, as that is what the majority
of the population celebrates. However, this month's blog hop is dedicated to those that celebrate winter
holidays other than Christmas. Create a project that celebrates Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or some other
winter holiday as we embrace everyone's beliefs in a celebration of diversity through paper crafting.

And this is my winter holiday card. 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by Nichole's blog to play along.

More Halloween Fun

Last night we went to WalMart and picked up the final touches of goodies for our Trick or Treaters.  Then came home and put the bags together.  It's my task for the next 2 weeks to put the finishing touches on the bags.  This the the bag topper I made today.  We do rather large bags so it's more like a card front but aren't these little googlie eyes cute and scray at the same time.  They are from SEI Mosterville Line and so is the paper. 

Be sure to stop by the Paper Issues Blog and link up your Halloween projects!
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stoping by.
