Treat Bags

As we won't be at home Hallowe'en  night, I made some old fashioned caramel apples and with some candy and chocolate, put them into a treat bag for the neighbourhood children. I also used Paper Doll Dress Up to make the pumpkin and cat for a topper. BOO!!

Happy Birthday Mom!

October 19th....and my Mother celebrates 93 years!! We will go out for lunch and have a good visit. Maybe a manicure and pedicure will be in the mix....mother-daughter fun! So with that in mind, I made a card for her. She loves birds and has a feeder attached to the window where she watches the flurry of eating. This card was made for someone older but the paper was given to me years ago before I started scrapping. I used the Live Simply cartridge (new) and added some glitter to the wing, some faux stitching to the leaves and the sentiment comes from My Pink Stamper Punnylicious
LRW - something old, something new
Fantabulous Cricut  - leaves

Little Red Wagon challenged us to a photo challenge. How cute is that! On owl!!
I used Create a Critter and the sentiment comes from Hero Arts.

A Steckle Woods Hike

I was thinking of the song "if you go down to the woods today, you're in for a big surprise...." as I entered the woods and began to hike with my Probus gals! What a beautiful day Monday! The sky was blue, and the leaves were changing colour but what impressed me a lot were the fungi! I had never really paid much attention to fungus before. Today, though, I looked beyond the trees. There was a lot of laughter and singing (who me?) as we got lost and ended up hiking in a big circle. Our group got separated from the main group as we were so enthrolled with the flora and fauna....oops. The pictures say it all!!
