Halloween Treat Bags

I am entering these treat bags in the challenge over at Gaby Abby Challenges with SEI Week 4 which is Halloween Candy.  I made 40 of these treat bags, 20 for my DD's 1st grade class, one for DS and 2 for my nieces that stop over.  The remaining 17 will go to a local shelter so that the children staying in the shelter will get some Halloween treats since they may not be able to leave to go trick or treating.  My friend is making cards to give along with the treats.  I used the Basic Grey Eerie Collection and cut 6x6 pieces and used my spider web around the page punch for the topper.  I then made 40 dracula, witch, skeleton, mummy and creepy creature from the Mini Monsters cart cut at 3 inches.  I then used various stickers and die cuts from the Basic Grey Eerie Collection and K& Co to put beside the monsters.  I think they turned out very cute.  Each kid will get a play dough, pack of mini cards, fruit snack and mini bag of popcorn.  I am also entering this for the Challenge Me Monday #33 over at Fantabulous Cricut, which is Frighten me or not.

Opinion Please

My 1st Blogoversary is the beginning of December and I am in a Christmas Blog Hop with some Cricut MB members on December 4th and 5th so I wanted to offer a nice blog candy for the hop and my blogoversary.  Would you rather have a chance to win the Cricut cartridge Rock Princess or Country Life or should I offer up a Christmas cartridge?  Please let me know your opinion in the comments section as soon as possible because I will have to order the cartridge soon to make sure I get it in time for the hop.  Thanks for helping me make up my mind:)  My DH says that I can never make a decision and he is probably right because I want to make everyone happy so I am counting on you guys to make up my mind for me;)

Back to School Swaps

This is a clipboard that my DD and I made for a back to school swap she partcipated in, you had to make one item and then buy five items for school, the girl she was giving to really liked iCarly so we made this clipboard for her and then we put some of the left over stickers on the pencil case and notebook we bought her.

My DS participated in the swap too and his partner really liked Cars and Thomas the Train, we could not find too much with Thomas so we went with Cars.  Here is the picture frame we made for his first day of pre-school:

Breast Cancer Ribbon Journal and Bookmark

Here is my entry for the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #2 Think Pink

Breast Cancer Ribbon Journal and Bookmark

It must include at least 2 Cricut cuts and you must use at least three of the following: Pink, Ruffles, Scallops, Flourishes, Glitter and Jewels.  My two cuts are the ribbons, one on the journal and one on the bookmark, I went to my LSS to use their Pink Journey cartridge to cut them.  I used pink, flourishes (made out of jewels with my iRock) and jewels in the center and on the bottom on both of the ribbon cuts.  I just got the iRock and this is the first thing I used it on.  I LOVE IT!! 
I made this as a gift set for my sister who is a survivor of breast cancer.  She has a pretty good attitude about it.  One of the things she says to people about her journey to recovery is that the cancer may have taken one of my boobs but it didn't take my life, for that I must be thankful. 
Keep your fingers crossed that I win one of the six Pink Journey cartridges that they are giving away.  I love this cartridge.  There is just so much I could make with it.  Besides my sister who has won the battle against this horrible disease, I have three cousins who are still battle breast cancer.
I am also entering this in Robyn's at My Pink Stamper #1 Karlee challenge (Monday October 11th post) - make something for someone.
