More School Treats!

Yesterday was a very busy day for me!
Ironically, it was my kindergartner's turn to take treats on his big brother's birthday!
So I got to make treats for TWO classes!
 
On the good side, I have my Cricut and we kept them VERY simple.
 
Today I have been playing catch up on my house.  Not nearly as fun! 
 
 
 
My son wanted a Halloween Cat.
So we cut this one out of Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge at 3".
 

I cut out little strips of red and adhered it to the back to make the red eyes! 
OOOOOOO!  Scary!

Then we loaded up the Kindergarten treat basket!
 
This week's challenge is to use Die Cuts!  I did not plan this! LOL!
But I do use my Cricut almost everyday or one of the kids!
For more details about the challenge and a linky to share click HERE! 
 
Also, you don't to pass up a chance to win this week's challenge giveaway!  It is a Cricut Cartridge!

Birthday School Treats

Well, it's official!  I don't have two 6 year olds anymore.  Now I have a 7 year old!
 
Today for his birthday I sent a little treat to shcool for him to share!
He picked out the image and drew on the smile.
Didn't he do a good job?

 
We used the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge.
The Spider was cut at 3".

 
This week's challenge is Die Cuts!
Time to get those machine busy!

HIMCR #66 - Black, Orange, & Purple

WOOHOO!!  Time to start a new month of challenges!  Soooooo, that means it's time for a color challenge!  The colors this time are Black, Orange, & Purple.  Now just because these colors together are typically used for Halloween, your challenge submission doesn't have to be Halloween themed!  In fact, I think it's fun to use holiday colors but  NOT make it a holiday creation!  Just have FUN!

You have until Friday night, October 12th to link up your creation to get entered into the monthly drawing this week. When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR66.
