Sweets & Treats



Good Morning!

Can you believe we are already in October?  I sure can't and since Halloween will be here before I know I decided to try and get ahead of the game and start making treats for my boy's classes. 


For the topper of my treat bag I used the Handled Treat Bag Topper Cutting Files.  I was able to get 9 of these toppers from each 12x12 sheet of patterned paper.  Not too bad since I have to make about 90 of these guys.  LOL.  

The Caramel Apple is from the Fair Food Cutting Files.  The sentiment spot is from the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files.  My sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's Bewitched Stamp Set.  The twine is Trendy Twine's Orange Licorice.

I decided to enter this card into the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge.  The sketch is below.  I used the Christmas in July Face Assortment for her face.

Summer Fun Layout




Good Morning!  

Hope you're having a great week.  My boys went back to school a couple of weeks ago and I thought it would be fun to scrapbook some of their summer pictures.  My boys lived in our pool this summer so I have a lot of pool pictures to scrapbook.  


I made the background shapes using the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files and the Layered Labels 1 Cutting Files.  


The "Fun" part of my title is from the Camping Fun Cutting Files.  I created the shadow behind "Fun" in the Silhouette Studio.  For the "Summer" part of my title I used the Popsicle Fever Cutting Files.  I just cut the "A Taste of" part off of Summer in the Silhouette Studio.  

The boy jumping in the pool is from the Diving Boy Cutting Files.  For his face I used Peachy Keen's In the Garden Face Assortment.  


Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great week.
