These are some real 'quick' treat bags I threw together for Parker to take to school tomorrow. He is in Kindergarten, so I filled them with erasers, smarties and stickers and tied a pencil to the outside!

This was a wooden "princess" castle that I turned haunted! :)
Most of the 'characters' and 'candy' were hand cut from the patterned paper. My fav page is the 'Monster Bash' on the last 2 pages! :) There's even a Starbucks card tucked into one of the pages! :)

Okay, so maybe I am going a little 'retro' lately with the retired DP, but I am a confessed hoarder and trying to use my stash of retired stuff! I made a set of 5 of these for a Christmas present. I am packaging them in clear boxes from PaperTrey along with envelopes and decorating the outside of the box as well. I have others done in which I will post a pic of the finished boxes.
Supplies: Stamps: Live Your Dream; Paper: Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Choc Chip, Afternoon Tea DP, Whisper White; Ink: Choc Chip, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky; Misc: Wild Wasabi Ribbon

I caught this barracuda in Key West in 2002 during a trip my hubby and I took for our anniversary! (That is the 1st mate, not my hubby!)
This is one of my favorite stamp sets right now! The color scheme came from Kristine Werner's blog: http://kwernerdesign.com/blog/2008/10/color-inspiration-23-1.html. The sketch is for the SC196 from SCS! I thought the Vanilla looked a little harsh, so I inked it with some Kiwi Kiss to soften the look. It's hard to tell, but I stamped the pumpkins on vanilla and then stamped it again on watercolor paper and then watercolored it and layered it on top of the vanilla using pop dots.
Recipe: Stamps - Cats & Bats - Inkadinkadoo, "Fall" - Technique Tuesday; Paper - Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, watercolor paper; Ink - Kiwi Kiss, Choc Chip, Staz-on, SU Markers - Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Aqua Painter; Misc - nestabilities, oval punch (SU), fern punch (Martha Stewart), linen thread, Old Olive Ribbon, Swirl CB folder, sponges
I bought this stamp set a while back and have not really used it! I love the 2-step look! This was made for CC185 from SCS. I ran the VV through the CB using the Swiss Dots folder and then sponged Baja Breeze over the dots. I lightly sponged the edges of the other VV panels. I hand cut the flower on the left and popped it up.
Recipe: Stamps - Spiral Bouquet - PaperTrey; Paper - Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze; Ink - Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Old Olive; Misc - Swiss Dots CB folder, Old Olive Twill Ribbon, Ticket Corner punch, corner rounder, sponges, pop dots
