I found this cute project in Woman's Day Halloween Celebrations Magazine. The kids and I thought it would be fun to make for their classmates for Halloween. So we have been working on these little cuties all weekend. I am only showing you one of each but we have made a TON of them!! LOL You all know that I have 5 kids and all of these kids are in school and have classmates. So we had to make quite a few for them to give away.
Now I just need to keep them hidden until the 31st because my little ones will definitely try to sneak and eat them!! LOL

Last Sunday, while Denise was here visiting me, we decided to take a class at my local scrapbook store. The class was to make a tray using the new Graphic 45 - Christmas Emporium Collection. The actual project used vintage photos of people I don't know. I wanted it to be a bit more personal so I decided to print out some photos of my children and use their photos on the tray. I did end up putting one of the vintage photos on it too. I think Denise was going to add personal photos to her tray too when she went home.

I typed it up and printed it out on vellum. I trimmed it and then used brads to attach it to my layout. I used paper from a kit in my stash and can't for the life of me remember who it is from. Sorry. I already threw away the packaging. I stamped out the banner pieces and then fussy cut them out to make the banner. Most of the things I used on this layout were from my stash. (hence the beauty of making it for Scrap our Stash! lol)
I really like how it turned out and I think it really does capture a moment in time. Now it is your turn to do the October Quote Challenge at Scrap Our Stash.
Don't forget that there is a fun "Fall" challenge going on over at Sketches4all this week. There are a couple of great prizes so you might want to check it out!!
I thought I would end with a photo my scrapping buddies. They aren't really much help but they are good company. (lazy dogs! lol)
Okay, back to having fun on my trip!! lol Hope you are missing me and leaving lots of comments.

I'm away on my trip but I thought I would share this project and the tutorial I made for Crafter's Companion. It is getting to be "that time of year" when everyone is going to holiday parties and what should a nice guest do?? You should take a hostess gift! I like to take a bottle of wine to give to the hostess and these bottle tags are the perfect thing to dress up a bottle of wine. They are SUPER EASY to make.
1. I start by cutting out a piece of card stock or pattern paper 3" x 8". You can use whatever size works best for the bottle you are working on but for purposes of this tutorial we will use 3" x 8" as our measurement. Using a corner rounder, round each corner.
2. Score a line about 2 inches down one end and fold over. While it is folded over round the corners. You will be cutting through both pieces of paper.
3. Punch a hole in the folded side. I used a 1 1/2" circle punch.
That's it. Now you just have to decorate it. I decided to make this after getting my new S.W.A.L.K. stamp set -You Deserve a Treat. And let me tell you, I am seeing a million uses for this stamp set! It was a perfect accompaniment to this project. I plan to give it to my girlfriend to show her how much I appreciate all that she does for me. But you could make up a few of these hanging bottle tags to have on hand for the next time you need to take a gift with you.
I also wanted to remind you that there is a fun "Fall" challenge going on over at Sketches4all this week. There are a couple of great prizes so you might want to check it out!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
