Happy Happy Halloween My Blogger Friends!
Count-Down to Wisconsin in 30 Days!
It's Halloween and you know that means I will be up at the BUTT-CRACK of dawn this morning delivering my Halloween Treats to my Girlfriends in SaddleBrooke.
I started out my morning with this basket........FULL of Halloween Treats for 18-of my closest girlfriends and neighbors in SaddleBrooke!
The basket was packed full of Witches Brooms.......
 Halloween Tags.......
 Scary Coffins......
 And even some creepy eyeballs.....
 The main gift was a super fun Witches Brooms that were made from brown lunch sacks ...... a Pretzel Rod ...... and some Pop-Corn!
 Each package of Witches Brooms not only had the bag filled with Pop Corn........
 But each package also had a SUPER FUN Witches Boot Tag!
And I also made everyone a SUPER FUN Coffins.......
 That had a small cello bag filled with scary eyeballs!
 I wrapped black and white tullee around each of the coffins to pretty the coffins up just a little!
And ran each of the coffins through the Big Shot and the SU Spider Web embossing folder.  SO STINKIN CUTE!  I also added a retired SU Bat to each of the tags for a little extra something something. 
LOVED SO MUCH how these projects turned out that I included Jack in the Halloween FUN.
  I left these little Halloween Goodies on his bathroom sink this morning......
 Jack received the coffin treat with scary eyeballs.....
His Halloween Gift Tag......
 And I just know these scary little eyeballs will probably be a late morning snack!
Jack's broom is filled up with CheeseBalls and I also made him one of the wrapped gum holders that I made for Jared's teachers.  Happy Halloween Honey!

Halloween Creations from my FU GalPals

Happy Happy Tuesdsay My Blogger Friends!
Count-Down to Wisconsin in 31 Days!
Today I have a couple Halloween Cards that my fellow FU GalPals shared with me ........ Let's JUMP right in with my share for today......
First up is the card that Ann LaPerre made for me.  OH MY STINKIN GOSH ...... This card is UNBELIEVABLE!
The mummy is so real-life ..... but what BLEW ME AWAY was the stinkin fun headstones that Ann created.  Check out the darling names that Ann came up with ...... "I Am Not Well" 
I know these two are a little hard to read - but one says ...... "Rest In Peace" and the other one says "I Am A Ghost"SERIOUSLY ANN ....... these cracked me up! 
And check out this OH TOO CUTE BOOKMARK that my good good friend Kris Holmes made for me.  She used the Bump in the Night Cricut cartridge to cut out her image and then sandwiched it between a popsicle sticks.
Is this not the CUTIEST little critter you've ever seen?  LOVE LOVE LOVE that Kris made this into a bookmark.  I'm just hoping that my grandson doesn't talk me into giving it to him when I go back to Wisconsin! 
And my last FU card share for today was made by Debbie. 
I'm IN LOVE with this little Witch and find that every single time I see her stamped ...... I SMILE!
LOVE how Debbie colored her in and then spot-lighted her off to the side of her card.  And check out the adorable Candy Corn that Debbie decorated the bottom portion of her card with ...... Is that not just STINKIN CUTE!
MANY THANKS to all three of my FU GalPals - I am SO BLESSED to be part of this group and continue to be blown away with all your creative abilities and outstanding talent that each of you have!  You are three of the BESTIEST FRIENDS that I have!

Halloween Card from Donna

Happy Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Count-Down to Wisconsin in 32 Days!
Today I have a special card that I received in the mail from my internet friend Donna.  I have to start out by saying the Donna SERIOUSLY makes some of the most AMAZING and FUNNY cards.   Her gift is what she puts on the inside of her cards......and without fail.......This card has an amazing message on the inside.
 Here's the card that Donna sent me.  She used the amazing Peek-a-Boo Frame die from SU to create the front of her card.
Each of the four flaps have a Spooky Bingo Bits image stamped under each of the flaps.....

Donna used Basic Black and Tangerine Tango for the images she stamped under each flap.....
And a sweet sweet "Happy Halloween" sentiment was stamped across the bottom panel of her card!
I mentioned that Donna is known for what she puts on the inside of her cards.....Well here's a peek at the Halloween Greetings she printed out for the inside of my Halloween card. 
I was roaring by the time I finished reading what Donna put on the inside of my card.  I especially like #6 ..... Now that is FUNNY! 
I feel blessed that Donna includes me in on her Halloween card giving list ...... THANK YOU DONNA for sending me this DARLING Halloween Card.  I'm feeling really bad as I didn't get a single Halloween Card mailed out this year ..... YIKES - - - - I'm BAD!
I'm off to begin cutting up cardstock for my 12-Tags to Christmas Camp - I have sold-out at 14-ladies for each of the sessions that I am doing on November 14th.  I also have several ladies who couldn't attend and they will be ordering Mail Order Kits for my November Camp.  I am thrilled with the number of ladies who have signed up..........And now I need to get busy and start putting the packets together. 

I'll be back tomorrow to share more Halloween treats and cards that I've recieved ..... Hope you can join me for that share ..... Keep Living Your Dream!

A Gift From Hailey

Happy Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Count-Down to Wisconsin in 33 Days!
Today I have a sweet little crafting project that my oldest Granddaughter Hailey made for Jack and me for Grandparents Day!  She made this sweet little picture frame for us to hang on the door to our refig.  Check this little cutie out.....
One of Hailey's favorite saying is "You Rock!"........and that is exactly what she wrote on this wooden picture frame she decorated.
She used lots of different colored markers ........ and gave this otherwise plan picture frame a whole new "colorful" look.
She even decorated the back side of her frame and added a magnetic across the back of her frame and that allows us to hang it right on the door of our refig. 
I just love love love this picture of Hailey.  It's UNBELIEVALE how fast she is growing up.  She also surprised me a couple week ago and told me that she was elected to Student Council of her 5th grade class.  She was soooooo proud of this election and said in her speech that she would represent all the students in her 5th grade class and be their voices when discussing issues with the Teachers and Staff of her school.  (Now.........HOW GROWN UP IS THAT!!!!)
Today I'm pulling together the last of the Halloween Treats that I will be delivering to all my SaddleBrooke friends on Halloween morning.   And yesterday I came up with the 12-Tags of Christmas designs and now just need to start cutting - sorting and making packets for my upcoming November 12-Tags of Christmas Camp.  Hope you can join me tomorrow for more Kards by Kadie creations that I'll be sharing with you.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Witches Broom!

Happy Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
Count-Down to Wisconsin in 34 Days!
Today I am sharing the darling little Witches Brooms that I sent my grandkids back in Wisconsin.  I made a U.S.D.A. BoatLoad of these for each of grandkids to hand-out on Halloween for their classmates and teachers.  Check these little creations out.......
These are allllllll over the internet right now and I received my inspiration from Di Gibbs back on September 24th.  She made an amazing video on how to create these little cuties and I knew the very minute I saw these ..... that I would be making these for my Little People!
They are made with Tootsie Roll Pops ...... Natural color Coffee Filters ....... A Black Sharpie Marker .... and some SU Linen Thread.  I originally was going to make these using the Bootiful Occasions stamp set - but when I realized I was going to be making over 100 of these little cuties - well lets just say I VERY QUICKLY changed my mind.
Here's the product that I used to create these for my grandkids......
And all you do is fold the coffee filter in half .... then in half again and then start snipping up from the bottom of the filter to create the actual broom.  SO STINKIN EASY!

I created a very productive assembly line and before you knew it ...... I was DONE (thanks Opal for helping me pack these up on the car-ride up to Lorri's event!).   I skyped the grandkids on Thursday night and they had received their box of goodies and were THRILLED with the way the treats for their classmates turned out.
NOW ...... I need to get busy and finish up my Halloween Treats for my SaddleBrooke Friends.  I am creating a cute coffin that is filled with eyeballs for my Halloween Treats this year .... and of course ..... I will share those treats with you on Wednesday morning.
Thanks for joining me today - I'm in FULL RUN MODE for the next couple of days - Hope to get LOTS of things CHECKED OFF my "To Do" list this weekend.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Halloween Gum Treat Holder

Happy Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
Count-Down to Wisconsin in 35 Days!
It's RSVP day for my Stamp Camp friends and we will be doing the 12-Tags of Christmas at my November Camp.  Let me tell you friends........I CAN NOT WAIT to share with you the 12-tags that we will be making at camp.  SERIOUSLY FUN and LOADED with HOLIDAY HAPPY!
My share today is the gum holder that I made for my oldest grandson Jared to give out to his Middle School Teachers on Halloween.  Check these cuties out........
 I made these for Jared to hand out to his teachers on Halloween.  Jared is in Middle School and feels he's too old to hand out candy to his classmates - so he thought giving his teachers a little Halloween T reat would be a fun way to join in on the HALLOWEEN FUN ....... AND ........ HUMOR HIS GRAMMIE!
I used some (retired) SU DSP and some that I had in my Halloween stash - and created the GHOST with the SU Owl Punch! 
All I did to make my Happy Haunting Wrapper was to unwrap the packaging that my Eclipse Gum came in and use that to make myself a template.  The original packaging had the seam joined at the side of the packaging and I wanted my packaging to meet at the back of my holder ....... so all I did was extend my edge about an inch so the seam closed at the back of my packaging instead of the side.
 The other thing I did was use my 3/4" circle punch to create a thumb hole so the gum could be easily removed.  I did this step AFTER I had my gum packaging assemblied and that way I knew for sure the hole matched up perfectly with that which the manufacturer created at the plant.
The "Happy Haunting" sentiment was from a VERY RETIRED SU set and it was punched out with the Word Window Punch and then adhered onto a Modern Label Punch.  Then I used dimensionals to adhere that piece to my package.
I used a coordinating piece of card stock to create a panel for each of my DSP panels to adhere to. 
And I used 5-different colors of cardstock to create my holder. 
Old Olive - Pumpkin Pie - Tangerine Tango - Basic Black and Going Gray! 
This little cutie is BY FAR one of my favorite.  It uses a retired Halloween DSP that SU sold several years ago.  It's my ALL-TIME FAVORITE Halloween DSP that SU EVER SOLD!
The Ghost was made with the help of the SU Owl Punch.  All you do is trim off his little feet and then ........ Turn him over and you have created an INSTANT LITTLE GHOST
Here's what the gum holder looks like from one of the ends......... 
And at the other end - the gum slips out.  This makes it perfect to resue the holder! 
And here's the notch that the 3/4" circle punch creates.
I just know that Jared is going to have fun handing these out to his teachers on Halloween and I even make enough for him to have one for himself and maybe a couple of his favorite friends.  Because of course.......we are NEVER TOO OLD to celebrate Halloween!
I'll be back tomorrow to share the Halloween Treats that I made for the rest of my Little People in Wisconsin.  They all received the same treats and that was because I knew they would all want to hand these little cuties out to each of their friends on Halloween.  Hope you can come back and join me tomorrow for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
