Hello to all my Blogging Friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!
I'm so glad you came to visit my blog today. This is a very exciting time for us at "Hopping Just for the Fun of it". Because this is our very first (I hope of many more to come) Monthly Blog Hops. You most likely came here from Eileen's Blog http://www.elefevre.blogspot.com/ didn't she do a great job on her project. I am number 9 in the line up but if you would like to start from the beginning so you don't miss anyone click on the following link http://www.theloveofstamping.com/hopping_just_for_the_fun_/ and that will get you to the home page.
The theme for this months Blog Hop is All Holidays. I chose Halloween as my theme this month. I just love this little stamp set Howl-o-ween Creeps. The little characters are so cute (I mean Scary) and so versatile. This stamp set is really great when combined with the Cellophane Treat Bags that Stampin Up has for sale in our new Holiday Mini Catalog. (If you need a catalog leave me a message).
So I made up a set of six treat ideas and colored in the scary faces with markers and an Aqua Painter. Then I punched them out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and attached that piece to a punched Scallop Circle. I then filled three of the cellophane bags with treats- 2 pencils wrapped in DSP, 4 Crayons and 2 Gel Pens. I attached the remaining three Scary faces to some Low Calorie options. I have to think of other goodies besides candy as we still have 6 weeks before Halloween and I don't need all that extra candy around the house! I know "What's that all about" right!
Here is a close up photo.
Have fun this weekend and I hope you get a chance to make something fun yourself.
