What I made for the Pumpkin Patch this year.

So those of you who have been following my blog for a year or so, know that every year my neighbor has a fun day at her home, (outside in the yard) for anyone who wants to come. She lets people bring pumpkins, crafts and other items to sell. There are also games, pony rides, and a straw maze for the kids. For a free will donation you can get a really yummy lunch and some of the profits always go to help someone in the community that is going through a hard time, such as cancer, house fire, flood...It was a gorgeous day! and here's some of the things I had for sale.Magnetic rectangle chipboard calender
More calendars
Pumpkin jar w/ Jack-o-lantern Decor Elements Face. Ladies these faces are a super buy! You get 3 faces for $4.95!!!
Another jar
This is a simple craft the kids could do at 50 cents each. Fun and easy!
Sucker Treat
I made boxes and filled them with Tootsie Rolls and some with M & M's.
Cute little buckets I added rub-ons to were a big hit. I had green and black buckets also.

Regional Organized Altered and 3-D Swap!!!

Talk about a FANTASTIC Swap! I was so excited to see all the wonderful ideas this group of ladies came up with for an organized swap I hosted at the Cincinnati Regionals. Check it out!Here's mine, I altered some "mini lunch box tins" that actually had Easter eggs and bunnies on them. There were three different colors of tins, Pink, Purple and Yellow and SU's Razzleberry Lemonade DSP went perfect with them! I added a cute little tag on the side and of course some chocolate to the inside!
This "desktop calendar" was made by Heather Arsenault. What a great idea! and she even included a calendar for 2010 also. Love it!
This "mini accordion file purse" was made by Jana. Isn't this super cute! Love that Razzleberry Lemonade DSP! So pretty! This would make a great gift! I love it! What a great swap!
Here's an inside view of it.
This "Christmas list book and receipt clip" was made by Coleen. What a cute little gift idea! Love the colors she used.
This "note paper holder" was made by Beth Pebbles and she even include directions for us so we could make some! Thanks Beth! Another great gift idea!
Still another great gift idea! This duo was made by Kim Peles. It includes a "tea bag holder and a holder for Ghiradelli squares" tea bags and chocolate included!!! Yah!!! and she included directions for her creations! I told you this was a great swap!
Inside view of the box and holder.
This cute little "mini purse scrapbook" was made using the 3" x 3" envelopes by Shannon Bruner. She used the Cottage Wall DSP for this project, another one of my favorite SU papers!
Inside view of the mini scrapbook. Really cute!
Robin Allison from New York made this pretty little "travel Kleenex holder". I love the leaf stamp set she used. What a great job embellishing it!
Look at this one! Oh my gosh! Lynne Aikins made this one and it really was a super swap! It's a "memo board". She said since the wish list is under glass you can use it like a dry erase board! and she even made us all 3 little cute tacks for the cork board! I love the way she altered the picture frame!
Here's the last one, but not the least by a long shot! It's a "die-cut scented air freshener" made by Sharon Burkett. What a great idea. She used a small wooden embroidery hoop to hold her potpourri. Another very nice giftable. So.. that's all of them. Thanks again ladies for joining me in this swap. I love all the variety we had. Hope everyone had as much fun at the regional as I did.

Fall Stamp-a-Stack

Here are a few of the cards and projects we made at our Fall Stamp-a-Stack.This first one is a CASE from pcgaynor from another site. I used different DSP and I love how the Black and White looks like bones!
Now this card is an exact CASE from Heather at another site. The only thing different is she put colored brads at the top of each square. I think this is one of most beautiful cards I've ever seen!
One of Kelly's cards using the set Priceless

Swaps From Our Meeting At Darla's

Here's mine I chose to do a chipboard ornament. This month we were suppose to find a card or project in the SU Catty and change the color or use a different stamp set. This is always fun and it's nice to be able to show customers how easy it is to use the layouts from the Idea Book.
This is Shannon's. Love it! Good use of the crimper. I need to pull that tool out and use it some more. I bet I could sell some more of them.
This is Teresa's card. Great card using the Big Shot!
This is Leona's card. I still love this set, Lovely as a Tree. Great card using the Top Note!
Darla's card, she actually got her layout from the new Christmas mini! I liked this card so much I just had to order the new Ronald McDonald set to get that turtle!!!
This last card was our make it take it card at the meeting. Super cute! I always have so much fun when we get together at Darla's and feel that I am truly blest to have such a great upline! Darla, your the BEST!!!

Katie's Birthday Card and Invite

This is a birthday card I made for a friend's daughter who turned 16 last week. I cased the front from a talented lady named Stacey from another site. This card is made using the SU stamp set "Party Hearty" which I really love!
Every 16 year old girl needs a little bling on her card! I went with the new in-colors on this card.

I really made this card from the inside out. I knew what I wanted on the indies, but was having trouable with the outside. The inside of the card is a pop up card using the bear from Under the Stars. I just love that bear! Everyone NEEDS this set, I'm telling you! You really do!!!
Inside side view.
This is the invite that Katie's mom made for her 16th birthday party. I think she did a wonderful job. Thanks for letting me share it with everyone Becky! Super Job! Please check back in tomorrow and Ill share some cards we swapped at our meeting at my upline's last week-end. Take care everyone.
