Trick or Treat

Hi everyone. It's been a while since I've posted anything. I feel like I haven't have a spare moment since the start of July. First, we had to get all prepared for CHA- which means lots of creating, lots of packing, and lots of prepping for My Little Shoebox's workshop and make and takes. We had a great time in Chicago (well, Rosemont to be exact) and had so much fun during the show. It's always so nice to see friendly faces when you're far from home.

On August 3rd (I know, I'm a little late), Rod and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary. I can't believe that it has been that long- where did the time go? Love you Rod and I can't wait for the next 20 :D

Here is one of the projects that I created for CHA. It's from My Little Shoebox's Trick or Treat line. I so love Halloween (second favorite holiday right after Christmas) and can't wait until fall. The crisp air, the way leaves change to a rich hue of red or orange, warm sweaters, baking pies and caramel apples- ok, sorry, I am so off track. I altered a jewelry holder to hold these cute little cards. I layered the papers with vintage images, used the new Cottage Cutz dies that match My little Shoebox's new lines and just had fun digging through some of my old and new treasures.

Here's a close up of the top portion. I love the banner die cuts from MLS's new 3-D roll up flower die cut sheets. So cute!!

And here a better look at the bottom portion. I've had a small box of those pumpkin jingle bells for what seems like forever!
So happy to finally have the perfect project to use it on.

Thanks so much for stopping by :D Have a great week!
