Ok so you would think that I was done with Halloween crafts by now. I just can't help myself! Here is a decorative block I made. I love the saying. I think it suits my life just fine...hee....hee. :O) I used my cricut to cut out the vinyl letters. I used my SCAL program and the BlueType font from my computer.

I got this cute idea from a preschool art project. I decided to put my own spin on it. I used a piece of 8 x 10 canvas, a picture frame I got on sale at JoAnn's for $2.00, acrylic paint (black, white, and orange). Oh and don't forget the stickles glitter! I painted my kiddos tootsies and wallah! Footprint ghosts. This will be a great keepsake for many more Halloweens to come! :O)

I made these oh so cute cookie suckers the other day. I plan to give them away to some unsuspecting friends at a Halloween party on Saturday. I got the idea from howdoesshe.com click here for the link. My candy coating did not turn out as smooth as hers, I think she may have used white chocolate. I used Wilton candy coating. I also had to make my own eyes. I still think they turned out cute. I used my Mini Monsters cartridge for the phrase. :O)

I made this card using SCAL. I used a free SVG file from Brittany's SVG website. Click here to see her retro tree SVG file. I really like the simple tree and leaves they are perfect for fall. I also used a clear transparency and adhered the leaves to the front giving it a layered affect. :O)

Pop corn treats made for my son's awesome teachers! I put the popcorn in cellophane bags, added a decorative edge at the top, and then tied my thank you cards to the bags with ribbon. I used my Create a Critter cricut cartridge. I love the worm he is so very cute! :O)

I found the cutest little Halloween pails in the dollar section of target last year. They were two for a dollar. I filled the pails with stickers and candy and then cut the bats out with my cricut. I adhered them to pencils with a Halloween theme and then wrapped them with a cute treat bag and cute tag. I think they are so adorable!!!

I finally finished all of my signs for a Halloween party that my friends and I are throwing for our 4 year olds. They are going to go on a treasure hunt through the yard to collect things so I made signs for the landmarks that they have to visit. I think they turned out really cute and I had so much fun making them. I absolutely love the Mini Monsters cricut cartridge! :O)
