A New Halloween Costume Idea and a My Digital Studio Page!

We've been talking about Halloween all week. Deciding what to be for Halloween is always a daunting task. Earlier in the week Alexis shared that she wants to be Tinkerbell.

While playing outside, I suggested she be a bag of leaves. She loves to play with them and suggested we make a craft project out of the leaves in the back yard. However, that idea didn't fly.

Well today we thought of a third option. How about being a Stampin' Up! shipment!??? We got to work with some retired ribbon and a cropadile. Five minutes later we have our first draft! What do you think??

We spent the afternoon crafting. Alexis is holding the card she made using the floating re inkier technique. I don't think she'll ever part with that card. I tried to get her to give it to her teacher at school . No dice! Can you blame her? it's gorgeous!!

If you care to leave a message for miss Alexis, she won't send you hers, but she can pick who mine is going to.. Leave Alexis some love and you'll get a copy of her gorgeous creation!

Happy Craftin!

Alexis, you are the cutest Stampin' Up shipment I've ever seen! Very creative idea. It's so nice that you and your mom do lots of crafts together. I hope you have a Happy Halloween!

Hey Alexis.. I love your costume! If only I could convince my two lil boys to be cute packages like you instead of being Buzz Lightyear and Woody.. Your card is very pretty as well.. I don't even know how to do that technique yet. Thank you for sharing =o)
Mom.. nice Digital page layout as well.. I am having so much fun playing with mine.

This is an awesome idea Alexis! I wonder if I can find a box big enough for me to be one as well?!

Many Blessings,

Oh Alexis - I hope you went out as a Stampin Up shipment. That is wonderful. You are the best shipment your family ever got.
Happy Halloween
