Hallowe'en Treats

Just a quick post to show you my kidlets and a little something we cooked up together for their classmates yesterday.

Starting with the cutest (read: youngest) - this is Christine (aged 2.5), my Kitty Cat.

Next is Paige (aged 5.5) my Angel (?) - actually she's a Fairy.

And last but not least, Marley (aged 7.5) my Wicked Witch (how true, how true! LOL!)

All ready to raid the neighbours candy stashes!

3 little pumpkins for my 3 little cuties!

And these are the treats we made. These are Paige's batch and I'll be honest, the only reason I have photos of them is because she forgot to hand them out on Monday. Yup, we slaved over these and then I forgot to take pictures to show you all. Doh! Forgetfulness must run in the family, eh?

Paige stamped the image of her choice from the Batty for You stamp set onto her choice of card stock (Basic Grey and Always Artichoke) and then I punched them out using my 1 3/4" circle punch. They were then layered onto a piece of Frightful Sight DSP (her choice again) which I punched out with the scallop circle punch. 
I let her do all the stamping and gluing and I did all the punching. Marley got to do the stamping, punching and gluing as she's that bit older. Some of theirs were a bit off but ... it's supposed to be from them so I think it should actually BE from them! 
I did take charge of attaching the embellishments to the bag toppers - another piece of Frightful Sight DSP cut to 1 1/2" x 4" and folded in half. The girls tried to stuff the cellophane bags (the 1"x8" ones) with the licorice but found it a bit tough so I took over that eventually.

Anyway, that's it for tonight. Take a look at the new buttons on my sidebar. Stampin' Up! has got a new promotion that runs until Dec 15th. It offers our wonderful Hostesses the opportunity to get more FREE PRODUCTS if their workshops have high enough sales. I know I'm excited to share this with my November Hostesses - if you want to be one of them, click on the Email Me button and we'll set something up.

Thanks everyone. Hope your Hallowe'en was as fun and fright-less as ours was. Now, where's that chocolate? :)

See you soon!

  1. The kids look adorable, really great costumes! And good on ya for letting them make their own treat bags, I know it's hard for us to let go of the reins. I actually let Ailis make a b-day card for her friend's party on the weekend - all by herself! It was very difficult, especially as I was in the card making mood!
