Happy Halloween (almost)!

Hello all!
Well fall is DEFINITELY in the air here in London, ON.  Fall jackets are out of storage and shorts are put away officially.  Ahhh, so sad.  BUT - that means Halloween is nearly here!  I always said I would never be one of "those" mothers for my child.  You know the type - who make the beautiful "Martha Stewart" type cupcakes for every class event.  And the ones who send home the gorgeous hand-made gifts.  Well, unfortunately for me, my competitive nature has started to get the better of me!  And I fear I am becoming one of "those" mothers.

Here is our Halloween treat basket we're making for Sam's classmates this year!  I love an opportunity to make any kind of box or basket.  It's a nice change from cards and always looks so cute.  This one I found on splitcoast and is called "Maria's treatbox".  Very nice and quick to make.  Thanks Maria!  I think I'll be using this one again.

I've used High Hopes angel bear pumpkin (seriously - how cute?  all my favourite things in one - bear, angel AND pumpkin!).  I've stamped him on Copic XPress It and coloured in Copics.  And I've finally used this gorgeous paper I bought last month:  The Apothecary Emporium Collection 6X6 Paper Pad by Echo Park.

After making a few of these, I must admit - I think it's time to upgrade to a Scor-Pal finally!!

Happy Halloween (almost)!
and Happy Stamping!
