Gingerbread Houses and Gum Drops....Magic of Christmas...

While cutting out some Acorns from the Many Thanks stamp set (CTMH) the other night...I thought to myself..."hum, these totally look like a Gum Drop!!" SOOO with that in my brain and the itch to make a Gingerbread house with the "Around the Block" Stamp of the Month. (this month!)..I was sooo sucked in to CREATE this page!!!! I love my gum drops!!!! I embossed them with clear embossing powder mixed with just a bit of prisma glitter (CTMH). I even used the ITTY BITTY acorn stamp to make my tiny gum drops for the windows of my gingerbread house and the the bases of my "candy cane" corners!!! I used a regular ole hole punch and punched out circles for the roof, random triangles for the ends of my candy windows....Cute little Trees from the "DEC Word Puzzle" (soon to be retired get yours NOW!!!) I fun flocked, glittered and glued my way into a frenzy of Christmas Magic!!! We make gingerbread houses every year and I am SO looking forward to filling up these pages with Magical FUN!!! I have MANY Thanks for the WONDERFUL stamp set made for the fall season only to be used as my walk of candy on this SUPER FUN PAGE!! I TOTALLY love the JINGLE paper packet!!!!

A few fun Halloween projects....

Holy Halloween Batman!

I always have a good time with the kiddo's on Halloween. We trick or treat around our AWESOME little neighborhood and the last two years we have a little Halloween Party at our house with the neighborhood kids we trick or treat with. Last year I made the little scare crow costume - valerie wore it this year, and a zorro costume which sadly stayed in the box...Dallin chose to be the mighty hunter! Jentrie was an Angel...she wore her Baptism Dress (i know scary!)...this year I made Peyton's batman costume...I just can not make myself pay all that $ for costumes....I bought black sweat pants at walmart ($4.00) and he had a black turtleneck shirt (yay) and it was $5.00 for the material for the cape (double sided-double the fun!, the iron on pellon, and the fun foam for the$9.00 A costume that he will WEAR OUT!!! (he stayed home from church today with dad and put his costume back on after his bath...and went to bed with it still on...hum...I wonder if I will be able to wash it tomorrow! lol! I had fun making it!

I also played with MORE fondant! I had so much fun making this Pumpkin Candy Bucket Cake!!!! I saw the idea in a woman's day magazine. The cake is TWO bunt cakes bottoms together (with chocolate cream cheese frosting as a filling..yum) I also cut out the face with fondant. Then covered the pumpkin with orange colored sugar, a pipe cleaner for the handle, and CANDY...the outer candies have tooth picks in them so the inner candy would stay, same with the treats along the bottom...the kids loved it and I was so happy I made it...instead of cutting out the idea and putting in my "someday I am going to do this...." file! lo! Next year I want to do a Witch Calderon...only were the candy is do bugs, spiders, worms..eyeballs and in the very middle an empty veggie can (hidden) for some dry ice! cool huh! already can't wait! :) Lots of fun pictures to SCRAP!!! Happy Halloween!
