Pilgrim Treat Box

Thanksgiving is right around the corner — can you believe it?  It's time to start thinking about decorating and getting things ready to have family over.  This project is great to give a little treat for Thanksgiving.  Wouldn't this be cute sitting on your Thanksgiving Day table.  Fill it with a few little treats or some nice chocolates for dessert.

This box was made with the French Fry Die.  I free hand cut the collar from Whisper White cardstock.  I added a 3/8" strip of black cardstock for the belt.  The belt buckle was punched using the Itty Bitty Label Punch Pack and then I added a 1/4" square piece of Black on top.  The words from the Teeny Tiny Wishes.  So how many are you going to make for your table?

Fright Night

Only 3 more sleeps as the kids say until Halloween Night arrives.  Let's see if I can stay away from Christmas for a few days and post only Halloween projects for 4 days in a row.

Fright Night FrameThis is a project that I did for a Downline Getaway Weekend.  I cut the supplies and brought the frames with — everyone got to stamp and assemble it.  This was one of 10 projects to work on over the weekend.

I used Freaky Friends, Frightful Wreath and Tee-Hee-Hee stamp sets.

It’s Pumpkin Time

Saturday was my Fall Fest Retreat.  My daughter, Katie, came to help me for the day.  Her husband and their two sons came to "help" grandpa while we were busy stamping.  BUT when we got home that night we had a busy time.  We had to cook dinner, carve pumpkins, roast pumpkin seeds, and watch Halloween shows.

Here's a couple pictures of the pumpkin carving — can you believe I forgot to take pictures of the finished pumpkins!! 

Grandpa & Boys ShawnThen this morning we baked Pumpkin Cookies before they went home.  It was a good weekend.  Tomorrow I'll post some of the card swaps from Saturday's Fall Fest Retreat.
