This is just a small section of what I accomplished. Our yard is pretty huge and I think I worked on almost the whole yard except maybe for one area...I think I need a little break from the yard. Did I mention that I broke lots of fingernails and met a ton of geckos???? Eeks!!
Anyway, thanks for letting me yakk about the garden...today, I am also sharing this cute little bag that I made using SU's fancy favor die. This die has really been one of my favorites! I cut the basket out using our black CS. I can't believe that I did not order any of the new Halloween DSP! I think I still have time to get some for more Halloween projects. Do you see the huge rick-rack? I cut it out using my new XL die called Tasteful Trim. There are 4 trims that you can cut from this die and I love all of them! I decorated this bag with my Spider friend that I created using the 1 3/4" circle punch and a swirl punch (not SU) for the legs. Isn't he so cute?? The sentiment "Got Treats" is from a set with the same name. I punched the sentiment out with the word window punch and adhered it on the modern label punch.
For the handle, I used one of the trims and folded it in half and adhered it together. It made a really sturdy handle! I attached the handle to the bag using the new glitter brads - I just love them!
Thanks to all of you for your continued support! I am overwhelmed and overjoyed that there were so many of you that came to visit me and commented on my post yesterday. I thought everyone forgot me because I abandoned my blog for a week. I am really on the fence to stop blogging since my priorities have changed and there's not much time left for me to get on the blog. We'll see how long I can do this. Thanks for letting me be a cry baby about this, I know all of this whining must be getting old.
Well, happy Aloha Friday to you all. It's a furlough day for me and I'm getting a massage this morning! I really, really need it! Thanks for stopping in today. I do have more Halloween projects to share with you and I promise the sneak peek on the Holiday Tags class too so I'll see you soon!
