Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend? We enjoyed a relatively quiet one, since the kids had just done their week back, we knew they would be tired. We did get some blackberry picking done on Saturday afternoon though. We’re lucky that whilst we live on a fairly new housing estate, it is built on old farm land and many of the original hedgerows have been kept as natural divides, so their are lots of blackberry bushes. We’re also luck that my DH is quite tall and can reach higher than other folks that had already been, meaning there were still some left for us.
Blackberry picking and the leaves on my trees turning brown means that we really are heading towards the holiday season. So, at Laughs & PaperCrafts last Friday night, I had a little Halloween treat for all the attendees:
It’s the Curvy Keepsake Box! The new love of my ‘Big Shotting’ life!
I cut the die twice from Elegant Eggplant card, and sponged it using the same ink through the Star Mask.
The little tag – the moon is cut from Daffodil Delight card using the 1.75″ circle punch. The clouds are from Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Card, cut using the Cupcake punch.
Finally, the bats are cut using the Small Butterfly Punch and Basic Black card.
I popped a few treats inside – cute gift!
Thanks for stopping by today,
