Trick or Treat and something sweet

Happy Halloween!!!!

Are you ready?? Just got home from the school parade and it was so much fun! I just LOVE seeing all the creative costumes. 
Well I guess all good things must come to an end - BOOOOO I'm going to miss the Halloween projects I just adore this holiday!

Soccer Centerpiece PKS Challenge

Hi Everyone!

How was your weekend? I'm getting ready for a week of work and so that means no craft time :( I quickly finished my project for the PKS - 3-D Objects :: Fall Sports. My son plays on two soccer teams but one of our teams is nearing the playoffs so the end of year party is just around the corner. I thought it would be a fun idea to make some centerpieces. I really kept it simple as I will probably add the kids names and numbers. I just didn't have time and really wanted to enter the challenge :)
I started with a frappuccino bottle
I altered this little guy from the Playtime cartridge and added PK-451-wide-eyed-kids

Cartridges - Lifes a party (ball) George (Star)
Paper - Scraps

Hi Everyone!
Enjoying the last day of your weekend? I am taking it easy, we had an early morning soccer game and I'm getting ready to make some pumpkin bread YUM!!!

Each treat box I used the MCT - scallop die

I just LOVE that spider - it's so tiny I can't believe it cut :)

I added a tiny little web for that spider.

Sending you a harvest of good wishes - PKS & TKJ

Hi Everyone!

Hope all is well. Just popping in to share a card I made for a couple challenges. Peachy keen stamps - Create a Fall or Halloween project of your choice using only two colors. So I used orange and brown. I'm hoping I didn't cheat because I used a few shades of orange and brown. I didn't think about that until right this very second :) The other challenge is The kraft journal - Challenge 141 - Button, Bow or Bangle I chose the bow :)
I cut the acorn from CAC and stamped that sweet face with last months release PKSC-21

Sentiment - MCT Fall stamps
