Halloween treat bag

I made this bag with the Sizzix Bigz scalloped card die. Instead of folding it into a card, I scored two more lines at the bottom and turned it into a treat bag. I cut a circle out of the front of the card, added a frame with black cardstock and an acetate window. I am going to teach this at the card class at church and couldn't find enough large eyelets, so, I just used a black marker and colored some regular paper reinforcements. I figured the treat bag will be torn apart to get to the candy anway :)

CD Case Calendar

This weeks challenge was the Home from the Christmas Cheer cartridge. I turned mine into a gingerbread house. I downloaded this calendar from the Amuse website. The proceeds go to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The calendars come in three different size formats that you download. The calendar is placed in an empty CD case with the middle removed. After you remove the middle, (the part that the CD sits in) you take the case apart, flip the lid around and when you put it back together it sits at an angle and the calendar page slides in. Quick and easy! These would make fun christmas gifts. The top scalloped border is a Fiskars border punch. The ginger people are from Paper Dolls............aren't they cute?

My thoughts and prayers

So many people that I care about are having a tough time right now. They are all in my prayers.
