Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween friends! I have a few shares for you today. I'm currently working on these....
...some treat bags for my nieces and nephews. I put some restaurant coupons, snacks, and some homemade cookies inside. The canvas bags are from Martha Stewart and the little tags are from Making Memories.

I also thought I'd share Aiden's pumpkin decorating pics. I taped off his initial with painter's tape before he painted on top. I also mixed some glow-in-the-dark paint in all the paint colors. Here is the before...

...and the after....
Well I'm off to get all the Halloween goodies ready. Aiden is going to be Mickey Mouse this year. Mommy is going to be Minnie. :)
I'll be back soon. Thanks for stopping by!

On Trend: Navy and Pink

Hi Friends. I've been obsessed with the pink/navy color combo and thought I'd share a couple of card examples using it. This first card started with a navy base that was punched from THIS amazing punch. I originally bought it for Project life, but I'm finding myself using it on cards a lot....

I also love to partial emboss these days. It gives a perfect opening to place the greeting in. I also am in love with THIS stamp set with coordinating die. I love how many sentiment options it gives.

My second card can be found HERE. I did not take a photo of it but my sweet friend Joy did when she received it. Thanks Joy! :) It also uses the color combo and some fun stamping.

That's it for today. I hope you give this trendy color combo a try on your next project.

Thanks for stopping by!
