For my Halloween treat box I used the absolutely ADORABLE Paper Pretties set Pick of the Patch. I love all of the stamps from Paper Pretties but the Cooper and Sophia stamps are my absolute favorites. Just look at this cute little guy. Doesn't he just melt your heart.

Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge

Well, today is my very last blog a 34 year old, LOL. I honestly can't figure out where time went. I can't really be turning 35, can I? Dang! 35 always seemed to be the line that divided young and old in my mind. Now that I'm there I think I might have to move the line (although Tom says I've been old for a long time already) LOL. I guess getting older is just a fact of life but I'm just not sure I'm ready...I still haven't figured out what I want to be when I grow up. For the time being I guess I'll just keep playing with my paper, glue, scissors and such and pretend that I'm never going to grow up.

So it's Tuesday...that means a new Jacksonbelle challenge. We have a fabulous sketch for you this week. We'd love for you to play along with us. If you do, be sure to leave us a link to your project on the challenge post on the JB blog and/or use keyword JBE076 when you upload to SCS or PCP.
Here is the sketch:
For my card I used the awesome Eerie designer paper from Basic Grey. This is some of the best Halloween designer paper I've seen. Basic Grey makes creepy appear beautiful, LOL. I also used a fun Martha Stewart bat punch. And speaking of MS...all Martha Stewart punches are on sale 30% off at Jacksonbelle right now! All Inkadinkado stamps and stamp sets are 40% off too. It's a great time to do some shopping!
