Happy Halloween!

Finally, the leaves are starting to change color.  I've been too preoccupied to notice, but Dennis said something Saturday on our way to lunch about the pretty oak leaves.  So glad he mentioned the leaves, because now I'm noticing them, too!

  You probably already know that I love black cats - mostly because of my black kitty.  I think this scraggly cat die is adorable! He has been retired, but if you want one it looks like the Scrapping Cottage still has some.  You can find him here.  He comes with a cute spider that you can dangle from his tail!

It looks like the kids won't have to wear a coat while trick or treating this Thursday - the high is in the 70s.  I always hated it when I had to put a coat over my costume.  While Lauren was little, it seems like the weather was almost always nice.  I can only remember being really cold one time.   We had a kids Halloween party every year and would often have games set up on our front porch.

You may remember my Valentine countdown which was put together just like this Halloween one.  All the directions can be found at Qbee's Quest.  

If you like the image you can find it at Josiemart.  Again, love that little black cat!!

This treat bag was in the last issue of Paper Haus Magazine.  I folded up the brown bag and sewed the two sides to create a pocket to slip a treat into and the flap is held closed with the ribbon.  

This is that cutie pie ghost I had tucked into a Halloween Treat Cone awhile back.  You can find a pattern for him and a whole bunch of other cutie pies at Gingermelon.   I notice that she has this ghost ornament pattern on sale!

Okay, now - WHO WON THE STAMPIN' WRITE MARKERS?  That would be...

Thank you, Sandy and to all of you who placed a Stampin' Up order!

If you get a chance, LIKE the choux choux facebook page.  Thank you for sticking with me through this long post and have a very Happy Halloween!
