This one features Designer Series paper "Dashing"...did you know that the DS papers are on sale in November? Buy 3 get the 4th free! And there's free shipping all month as well. Time to stock up, I think :)
I also finally got out my Scallop Circle punch the other night and used it quite a few times. It really makes fun & easy embellishments.
More "Dashing" paper on this one...and a bit 'o paper piercing for detail & texture... I love the simplicity of this one.
Shhh...I used a retired wheel to make the swirly snow on this one...Whirly Twirly...but I think you could get the same effect from the Whimsy jumbo wheel. Oh...and there's that Scallop Circle Punch again :) There's a pink rhinestone brad in the centre of the snowflake, but it looks kinda silver in the photo. The rhinestone brads are a favourite of mine...they make great flower centers and just add a bit of bling to my projects.
And finally, this one is such a fun & unique color combo...Teal, Turquoise and Pink Passion, with a pink rhinestone brad in the centre, and paper piercing for detail. It took just a few minutes to put this one together.

In our subdivision we get very few kids out on Halloween. I think we might have had 20 or so this year...and that's actually a pretty high number for our house. We're so far out from the main road, and the houses are so far apart that we only get the locals...it's not a place you drive to just for the trick or treating. Lucky for us! It also means that people usually give really good treats out here. One house gave my 2 & 4 year olds Lindt pumpkins and ghosts! Well, they can't possibly appreciate that, I said as I put them aside to enjoy as a treat when this diet is over :) After all, Lindt chocolates are my absolute favourite chocolates (If Santa is reading this...TAKE A HINT!)
