Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween my bloggie friends.... Oh wait that was yesterday! Well I am sorry I did not post yesterday but I was side tracked with all that my little monkey's had going on! We had lots of fun this Halloween season. My monkey's got to dress up four different times. It was kind of nice since you put all that money into a costume for them to wear one night for an hour or two! I think they got great use out of these costumes though and will have fun playing dress up in them for a while. So I made some craft treats for the kids to take to school and some to hand out last night and I thought I would share them with you.

 I made these for last nights Trick or Treaters (all two of them that we got, good thing I made up fifty bags right? brother...) I mad the pumpkin from the Little Critter Cricut Cartridge and used a the stamp Orange you... fun from Kristal Andrew Design's Food for Thought Stamp set. And the Happy Halloween was a stamp set I picked up in one of those bins (Not great quality but I could not get Kristal's Fall-o-ween stamp set so I had to make do with this!) I just love Kristal's stamps... yeah I know I go on and on about them in my blog... but seriously look at how much you can use them for lots of different things! She has some amazing new sets out as well. Be sure to check them out (http://kandrewdesigns.com/)
 Look how cute they look flowing out of my bucket... Such a shame more kids did not get them!!

I made these for my little monkey's play group. There is a wide range of ages in the playgroup so I thought goldfish would be better then candy! I used Kristal Andrew Design's Splashtastic summer stamp set for the Fishing you a... See what I mean about the versatility of her stamps?

SO cute :) Got lots of compliments from the parents. My husband just looks at me and laughs and asked me why I can't hand something out that is just plain jane... WHAT FUN IS THAT?!?!?! I love putting special touches on things! SO much more fun!

Well that is all from me today my bloggie friends! Hope you have an amazing day. :)

Yes, it's such a shame the kids didn't get these cuties! You should give them to someone who really appreciates all the hard work you put into them... someone like... well, me! ;D LOL J/K Sweetie! You did a great job! I'm planning on making some cute baggies for next year because we actually did have a pretty good turnout this year! Got more than we normally do. One year I only had about six, but I was still thrilled because the first 27 years of my life, I lived in an area way out in the country where I never got a single trick or treater. :( I just love seeing the kids all dressed up! There were so many cuties this year. I don't have any of my own, so I love answering the door and giving out the candy. Once a year is good enough for me though! LOL TFS! It was a super cute idea even if you only had 2 treaters. ;)
