Monster Cookies...

I made a bunch of these "Monster Cookies" to send to our missionary son and a bake sale our community is having called "Festival of Sharing". I wrapped each giant cookie individually and put this cute sticker on top...I used artwork from my creatable "Autumn Days" and glued it to a punched scalloped circle...Oh, How I love my scalloped circle punch!!! Here's the recipe for you to make them too...they will also make a great treat to give to your lil' Trick or Treaters...Have Fun!

Treat Box Template...

I discovered this neat little treat box...courtesy of a wonderful hugsister on the pccrafter.com message boards. After looking at the tutorial I thought that there must be an easier way than having to do all that measuring an such...so I made a template! Now all you have to do is fill it in with some great Pccrafter artwork, cut it out, fold it up, add some embellishments, and fill it with your favorite goodies...This Thanksgiving box was made using Debbie Mumm's "Spooky Harvest" creatable...It was so easy to do...Hope you'll give it a try!

Happy Fall Ya'll...Freebie

I am having so much fun...I just love chocolate but I'm afraid it's something that I can only partake of on special occasions...like when the sun rises and again when it sets...LOL...So it's best that I give it away as soon as possible when it's in the house....and it's even better to give it away wrapped in a cute
package....soooo, I had fun today designing this cute lil' "Scarecrow Slider" just because I wanted to...It is your's to use and fill with chocolate and give away too and celebrate the wonderful harvest season! Hugs...Laurie

I Want My Mummy Freebie....

Hi All.....It's been a while since I posted...Let's just say that it has been a long busy summer and leave it at that....Summer is my least favorite time of year and I am happy to see it go...On the other hand...Autumn is my very favorite season. I love the cooler weather and the crispness in the air...I love all the beautiful colors of fall...oranges, reds, golds and purples! Sooooo.... to help celebrate this glorious season, I'm back with a cute freebie that may help get you all ready for all the fun that Halloween can bring! This is a cute Mummy Candy Bar Wrapper and can be sized to fit most Hershey chocolate bars. There is a space on the back to add a cute saying...I put
" Mind your Mummy" and have a happy Halloween" I hope you have fun with it and that all your lil' ghouls and goblins enjoy it!...
Also...I promise that I will do better from now on and post more often...I do have some yummy Autumn recipes that I would like to share and I have more cute freebies on my drawing board...so keep checking back!

Mother's Day Freebie

Mother's Day is just around the corner...
So I came up with an easy little
to share...
This bookmark, along with a wonderful romance novel or great mystery would make a super gift for the book loving "Mother" in your life...My Mom passed on almost twenty years ago, but there is hardly a day that goes by that I don't think of her and the many good times we had together. This is the sort of simple gift that my Mom would have loved!

The bookmark is really easy to make and would be something that the kids will have fun doing too! If you like the artwork and would like to see more...check out my creatable "A Mother's Joy" at PcCrafter's.
