It is hard to believe that today is October 1st already! Time just seems to be on fast forward lately......and I am afraid to miss anything! I am so glad to have slowed down a bit this weekend. I shopped with my son for dress pants, shirt, and a tie for his upcoming homecoming dance. He and I had lunch together....alone. No dad. No Cortney. Just us. I miss my little buddy. We used to be inseparable....and then he turned into a teenager.....you understand. So I am glad we had a bit of time together, even if shopping isn't his favorite activity!
I've been playing a lot with my Silhouette this past weekend. I have been experimenting and trying to teach myself all the ins and outs of it. It is a lot different than the Cricut. A few of you have asked me to write about the pros and cons of each.....I think I will down the line. I don't think I have enough knowledge yet to do a fair comparison. And don't get me wrong, I still love my Cricut....and won't give it up. This is just a new toy...a new crafty item to add to my arsenal of weapons! ; )
Perfect for packaging packs of gum for Halloween.
I used papers I printed from the new Crafty Secret's Halloween CD. They are awesome papers that you can print to any size you need! I also used some images from the CD. I printed them tiny, so I could punch them with a circle punch and add an epoxy dome on top. These became my enclosure.
I just added a bit of twine and a rhinestone in a coordinating colors....
I adore this pumpkin! Although he looks a bit frightened by whatever is standing next to him.....
