Gotta be spontaneous

I was planning to share more with the new sizzlet dies that I bought from J's last week...you know, the rest of the dies that go with that cute reindeer that I posted on the pillow box. Anyway, got a call from one of my sweet friends Coco and her daughter's bday is on Friday. That's right!, Halloween! What a fun birthday! Anyway, she was in a bind for ideas for goodie bags and so here is what I came up with. It's that easy one sheet bag I created using a tutorial by Beate Johns. You can find that tutorial HERE. Anyway, I used my Happy Birthday jumbo roller with black ink and rolled on pumpkin pie and only orange cs since I needed to make 24 of them and ran out of only orange :) We're going to finish making them at lunch today so got everything all prepped!
Stamp set is Batty For You. I love this set. I used 5 of the 8 images for these bags. Happy Birthday, Kacie!I wanted to share this pic of my son's soccer team called Nakoa Makaha. The season just ended last week Saturday and they were tied for 1st place! Everytime I go to these games, I get so nervous watching, I must be wierd. But anyway, 2nd place was still awesome for these boys. Here's a pic at the potluck after the game with their medals...hubby is the coach (on the left) and Nolan is on the far right...Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! I've gotta get a move on and finish up my kits!! Did I say that yesterday?

I hope I get to post on Friday since I'll be busy with finishing kits and also my Halloween treats to give to co-workers and friends...the pressure is on!

Such a cute bag, Teri! I love how you used the Stampin' wheel to create the design. I don't use my wheels often enough and I have tons of them. Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

Congratulations to your son's team! #1 or #2 are both good. . .as long as they had fun! I think we get nervous because we want our kids to be rewarded for working so hard!
