Gearing up for Christmas!

This cute little guy is from Inky Antics. I purchased him from Eclectic Paperie. I colored him in with my Copics. I stitched him onto pink felt. The Christmas paper is from K & Company. I used my vintage ribbon from Pine.

And....as many of you know I had a 2 hour Halloween party for 20 fifth graders.....What the Hell was I thinking? It was sunny all day until it was time for the party. OF COURSE! The one thing all of them can agree on is the outdoor scavenger hunt. Which you can NOT do in the pouring rain! Soooo we tried filling time with Win, Lose, or Draw.....boooorrrring! Mummy wrap.....lasted all of 2 minutes, POP the Balloon with Your Butt game.....lasted all of 2 minutes! So what did we do for the remaining hour and 45 minutes? Wellllll we tried telling scary stories, Hot potato, and Charades. The kids were complaining they were bored and to be honest so was I. Fortunately, we got a 20 minute reprieve from the rain. So we did our Scavenger Hunt. That was the longest 2 hours of my life! I am so glad it is over!
