Trick or Treat!!

Here are some 'genie bags' that I made this past week for special little people I know ;o) They were soo much fun to make!!

I used the fun little eyes on the front of the bag on the spider -- as well as some green Stickles that MissMike (aka: Sista Mike) sent me this week in her goodie box!! How fun!
Hope you all had a Happy Halloween!! Welcome November ~ ~

She sent me such good good things!! Two Martha Stewart stamp sets there on the left, a wondeful decorated jar of peanuts mixed with candy corn (my DH thanks you!!) The awesome hand-made card on top of the jar, some giant fun paperclips to decorate, and look at them tins!! The ones that I was soo trying to find last year -- you found em'!!! ;o) WOW!! How awesome is that?? Continuing across a hard eyeglass case and Giant chipboard flowers!! In the front from left to right -- more stamps!!! These would be the clear acrylic jewels -- along with the base holders for them too!! A bottle of funky green stickles, cool brads, another 'sheriff' stamp and some neat clear envelopes!!
