Happy Monday! and some FUN shares!

**WARNING LOTS OF CHIT CHAT and PHOTOS AHEAD!!** :)
Happy Monday!!! I have some FUN stuff to share today!! First off I got an email last night from Leigh Ann asking me to be on her Perfect Presentation Design Team.. I was so EXCITED! I said yes of course.. I am looking forward to that.. her templates are FABULOUS!! (and you know how I LOVE templates! LOL!!)

Now on to creative shares! Speaking of templates! :) You know the CUTE mini pizza box I shared below.. well I saw on the directions page it had a mini version of the mini pizza box! SOOO I made it up.. AND another mini pizza box.. I put them side by side so you can see how they compare!

I used PTIs tiny treats.. over in the PTI forum I started a fun little challenge.. we picked 3 sets and you can create whatever you want with them.. then share.. I think it will be FUN to see what people create using the same set.. got this idea from Jennifer McGuire!

Alrighty enough talking!!! Here is what I created for my own challenge! :)

The 2 boxes (tops) You can find how to do that FUN flower HERE! I did my own take on it, and used my border punches for the edges.. AND only used my PTI 8 inch paper.. it still worked.. and I am sooo making MORE!! (I hope everyone wants SMALL gifts for xmas this year! HA! I want to make up boxes for EVERYONE with those flowers on top!! )

Side View-

Close up of each flower I made... I LOVE this border punch on the edges! (more coming soon! LOL!)
Finally inside.. the smaller pizza box held 3 Ghirardellis squares, and 2 Lindt pumpkins with a KEY TAG gift card from starbucks (reg. gift cards are a tad to large!) The larger one held 6 Ghirardellis squares and 3 Lindt pumpkins and a reg. size gift card (can you say TEACHER gifts!! :) - IF Amanda picks this style box of course!)
If you made it this far THANK YOU!!! :)
Have a GREAT day!!!!

Happy Tuesday!!

Happy SUNNY Tuesday.. what a BEAUTIFUL day here for us! LOVING it! Hope it stays awhile!!

First off I want to say THANK YOU so much for the sweet comments for the little Halloween Party... I am a LUCKY Mom to have 2 such GREAT kids.. and I LOVE my girl is so creative.. I mean at 10 she does things I dont even think of! LOL! Wonder where she will be in 10 years! :)
Now if your here for those party photos.. they are right below this post! :)

Today I have HALLOWEEN cards to share!! I have so many ideas BREWING in my head I think my family may get different styles this year.. usually I do up just one style but I have sooo many CUTE stamps I want to use! :)

Here is one I made up yesterday used some of my NEW PTI goodness!! Fine Linen, and that YUMMY Sugar Plum PP by Lisa (its NOT just for Xmas is it! LOL!) Then some older PTI.. and then I added a foam bat for fun.. I have so many of these sets.. CLAIMING they are for the kids! HA! I LOVE them!! I thought it finished if off just right! :)
Next up I was in a Fall Swap over at PTI~ (THANKS Ted for putting it together)
Here is the card I sent off- to Pat... I was gonna link her blog but I didnt see it in her siggy!

I used my large scallop on it.. I think it is a bit hard to tell.. I just so LOVE that look... I think the black and white stars may not have been the right choice for that but I was HAPPY with the card.. that pumpkin just makes me smile! He is all lined with my spica pens.. love a little SPARKLE that it adds!- and of course PEARLS.. you know me... I gotta add 'em!

Here is the DARLING card I got from Caren (no blog in siggy!) isnt it CUTE! Those little monsters are all done with Spicas and so CUTE!! She also included the CUTE set of 4 note cards.. THANKS Caren! LOVED getting HAPPY MAIL!
Ignore my mock studio showing in that above photo! LOL!!

I am off to get my kiddos from school! Hope you have a GREAT day!!
