Treat Box

This was one of our make and takes at convention. It uses the Treat Boxes (115690) these are coated and quite durable and a very good size would hold several cookies, or candies small bottles many many things for small gifts for the special someone on your list. We also used 3/4" Polka-Dot ribbon(115608) and the stamp set Sweet Season(116471) small scraps of paper makes a great gift tag. Have a great day..

Corn and Apple parade

This was the weekend of our towns Corn and Apple celebration. We had lots of company as usual like most people in town. There is a very good parade on Saturdays my four year old granddaughter was visiting from Saskatchewan she had a great time. Got lots of goodies and she squealed with delight. Now to clean the house change all the beds we had fourteen in our house so the beds and floors were all taken.
Hopefully I can get back to stamping soon. I think the new Holiday Mini's are in the mail and it is full of fantastic new products.

Most of you have probably heard that Stampin"Up! has partnered with Build a Bear... I made this little bag, we were able to make a bear at convention so here is mine. It is Stampin"Up! Bear (117977), Stampin"Up!Beary Essentials(117980) and DS Paper Pawstively Prints (118060). The bag was in my stash and I just put pink paper inside and also sponged a little around the edges.

Covention swap

These two boxes were part of a swap I received from B J Peters aren't they cute. That little turkey would be cute on the Thanksgiving Day table or the Pumpkin with a few treats inside. If you would be interested in doing a class of these let me know and I will set up a date. There are two more boxes will show another day.
I am finally getting caught up after convention takes a few days with sorting swaps and putting on boards, or in packets for display. Laundry of course and then there is gardening to catch up on. I picked three big bouquets of sweet peas so far since home. Thanks for stopping have a great day
