You've Been Boo'd




Have you ever been BOO'd? Weeks ago someone (not really sure who...or am I?) began Boo-ing at work. Okay it was me, but I couldn't make it obvious so I left a store bought bag (shh don't tell the Stampin' Up! fairies - I mean what respectable stamper leaves a treat for someone in a store bought bag??) it finally came around and I walked into my office yesterday to find a bag of treats waiting for me...who snuck those in there when I wasn't looking I wonder?? Anyway I think there is only one person left who hasn't been BOO'd - so at this point in the game, I think it's okay to make it obvious that the last Boo was left by me and is this not the cutest bat you have ever laid eyes on? I wish I could take the credit for all this awesomeness, but the original design came from the fabulous Shelli Gardner....Do you think they'll ever figure out who left the first??

Gearing Up For a SPOOKY Halloween!






Today I worked on Thank You cards for my customers this month, along with a few for some very thoughtful volunteers who helped me get ready for our Fall Festival at school this coming week. I have lots of Halloween projects I am trying to wrap up including a sweet little black crow who's just waiting for a Halloween costume - can crows even be considered sweet? Well maybe just this one as soon as I am finished with him!

Candle Boxes completed!


Back in you June you may have viewed a picture of a box I had designed to be used as a wedding favor - sized just right to hold a Yankee Candle Votive. Today I finally finished all 96 of these little babies - Sorry Kim I am keeping two - Rick and Emma deserve a treat for entertaining themselves for the past two days :) If you missed June's post, you can view it here! It was hours worth of work, but I loved every minute of it - and I hope Kim and Pat like these little boxes as much as I do!

I put together a brief tutorial with the measurements and directions - cut on the solid lines and score on the dotted lines (except for the error!) please don't mind my horrible writing, and take note of the error on the box top where it's noted to score and not cut! I added a picture of a cut box top to help.





Thanks for stopping by today - GO PATS!

Beau Chateau





I have had this package of die cuts called Side Notes (#122379 $5.95) from the Belle Chateau Product Suite since July and just opened them this past weekend. Can you believe that I held onto these little darlings for this long? I needed a quick Birthday card the other day and these worked to make a perfect collage on the top of this card. I quickly put them together with a piece of Beau Chateau designer paper, a quick punch, a few pearls and a spritz of Log Cabin and Vanilla Smooch, and I was good to go....I think the recipient loved it too - well.... who wouldn't?
