Treat Boxes

What a busy week! Preschool trip to the pumpkin patch, helping parent at school, our dog has salmonella and is at the vet (outcome unknown). Anyways as the helping parent I told Hunter I would make Monster treat boxes from the cartridge Mini Monsters. What an ordeal! They are so cute but so time consuming. I also have to take treats to the soccer game tomorrow so I made them for the team too! YIKES...

Anyways it took a long time but here are the treat bags. They are so cute. And they were a hit with his class! Totally worth it in the end.

The first pic is of the soccer teams' Monster treat bags. Again they arent all showing as one of the players will not be there.

The second pic is of my adorable boys at the pumpkin patch. If you want to see more I have tons on my Facebook page.

The last two pictures are of the treat bags for his class. I didnt take pictures of them all.

Hope you liked them.

Love Holly

The Paper Tower

I am so excited~! Sarah at Pink Cricut is taking part in a giveaway in The Paper Tower I couldnt believe it when I saw it but that is exactly what I have been looking for, what I need for my scrapbooking/craft area. I am so disorganized, it is like an answer to my prayers! (or my husbands) No more paper everywhere~ So please check it out and enter for yourself (or me if you dont want one LOL). Let me know what you think, I think they are totally awesome and I want one!~

Love Holly!

Bulletin Boards

I have been so busy! My oldest son started preschool and soccer all in the same week. (I shed a few tears, ok a lot on his first day of preschool) So I have been busy for the past three weeks getting into a rhythm with school and practice. One of my jobs at his co-op preschool is to do the bulletin boards every other month. I got to pick the months I wanted so I picked Oct (Halloween), Dec (Christmas), Feb (Valentines Day) and April (?) thinking that I could use my Cricut to design them. Well it took me forever but I got it done for the month of Oct. YAY! So here are some pics from the finished project.

I just realized that I can only post 5 pics so I am going to post my favorites!

I used all Recollections plain colored paper and some scrap patterned paper to make all the critters, monsters and autumn themed items. I will post an album on my facebook of all the pictures since I cant put them all on here.

The first pic is of pumpkins from Stretch Your Imagination, the second and third picture are of creatures from Mini Monsters (one of my top three favorite cartridges right now) and the last two are of the owl from Create a Critter that I faux stitched with a white gel pen and all the critters from Create a Critter that I made and laid out on my carpet before actually taking them to the school! Enjoy!

Cute Birthday Card

Finally spending a couple of minutes updating my blog. Hunter is attending his first of many preschool friends birthday parties tomorrow. So I just made her a birthday card that goes along with her present. (My Littlest Pet Shop kittens)It should be a lot of fun as we have soccer and immediately following we have to drive over an hour to just make it on time for the birthday party. Hopefully Fisher gets a nap on the way there! So enjoy what I made, I hope you love it as much as I do.

I used: Create a Critter cartridge, scrap paper, American craft ribbon, Sharpie pen, Pink ATG gun, zig pen, Queen & Co Bon Bon embellishments
