From so-so to spooktacular!

(Good gravy...I think that's the silliest title I've ever posted.) Tanner is the snack person on Friday so after school today we went to work on transforming the blah peanut butter crackers into something much more fun. We found the silly rubber mice in the dollar bins at Target (gotta love that place!) which were 4 for $1.00. We plopped them on the top of the crackers...added a colorful bow...and a stamped pumpkin. Viola! (Please excuse the picture quality...we have had rain all day and that makes for sad looking pictures!)

Here is the stamp I used from (yet again) the dollar bins at Target...these were from a year ago last fall, so don't go looking for them! I chose to stamp them onto orange paper (from the Oct. kit) instead of coloring each one in.
Then I cut them out...and tucked them under the nose of the mouse. Tanner was thinking of writing his classmates names on each one. I voted no on that because I didn't want it to take him an hour to pass them all out! LOL. His next idea was that he color Halloween pictures and make "place mats" for everyone to eat off of. Ah, my little artist...any excuse to draw!!
The silly mouse...
I also just had to give a big SHOUT OUT to Celeste Smith a former DT member here at Freehand Scraps. She had one of her gallery layouts (using our January kit "Spiffy") chosen to be on the cover of Scrapbook Trends magazine October issue!! Congratulations Celeste! So honored that it was using one of our kits!
And speaking of this fabulous "Spiffy" kit...I happen to have a few of them sitting here if any of you are was one of my favorites! Have a great night!

I loved that Spiffy kit! It was beyond Spiffy-Celeste's page is so great...and the snacks are so cute and totally Tanner. Tell him the mouse might scare me a bit but I will have a snack with him anytime! (mouse and all)
