Waltzingmouse October 2012 Blog Party






If it is the 17th of the month, then you know where to find me--partying with my Waltzingmouse friends (and dreaming of a vacation in Ireland).  This month, we had this super fun color palette to inspire us to think about Halloween.



In my opinion, Waltzingmouse has the best Halloween stamps around.  But, do I own any of them?  No, not yet, but, it doesn't matter when you have a friend like Kim from Cupcakes, Cards and Kim.  I don't want to spill the beans about our upcoming Four-of-a-Kind group post this Sunday, but let's just say that Kim had my back on this one.

Around our house, Halloween is all about the candy, so I made two different treat holders that will be perfect for my little tricksters. 




One of the things Kim sent me was this black tulle netting.  I must admit that at first, I thought she had cut up her black lace stockings for me, and I was wondering what kind of Halloween shenanigans she was up to.  Anyway, I decided that the best way to use this was as a giant bow, Jeanne-style.






Here is what the treat holder looks like without the bow:





Here they are together:



That's it for me today.  Enjoy the rest of the hop.  I'm excited to see what everyone else has created as well.



Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Waltzingmouse Wanda's Pantry
Paper:  PTI Royal Velvet, Orange Zest, White, Black
Other:  PTI dies:  Favor it Box #3, Pillow Box, Photo Finishers, Limitless Layers Circles, PTI ribbon, Twine, black tulle netting



Thanks for Visiting
