Spooky Treat Bag


Hello everyone...It sure was quiet around here today. I ddn't know what to do with myself...LOL!!! We had 20 people here on Saturday and then my sister and her husband and my granddaughter stayed  Saturday night...and  on into Sunday. After everyone left, I striped the beds and  washed the sheets to get ready for our company tonight. My girl friend stays with us every Monday night because of her job....we usually watch Dancing With the Stars together while my poor hubby has to spend the evening in the craft room watching football...he is sooo abused...LOL!!! Anyway....

I had a little time this morning to make this cute little treat bag for today's Technique Lover's Challenge. Jenn challenged us to make this bag...it's made with one sheet of 8.5 x 11 patterned paper and some sticky tape.  You can find the directions here! 
The clouds were sponged on Choice Snow White with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using my homemade cloud template.  The Taylored Expressions spooky house die called 13 Dead End Drive die was cutout of Choice Black card stock and was lined with Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate card stock. The cat, raven, and the bats were all cut out with the Gothic Window Accessory dies and adhered with foam tape and glue dots. The punched lavender card stock borders and the ribbon handles  finish it off. 



Thanks for stopping by today....I hope to get to all of your blogs tomorrow afternoon!!! 
Have a wonderful evening!!!
Supply List:
Taylored Expressions Dies: 13 Dead end Drive and Gothic Window Accessories
Paper:  Choice Snow White (TE), Choice Black (TE), Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate, Lavender Lace (SU) Retired Patterned Paper (SU)
Ink: Dusty Concord (Ranger)
