Well, I want to start off by saying thank you to all of you for the awesome and sweet comments on my SmileBox creations :D. Your well wishes are so appreciated. Made our day!

I appreciate everyone who comments and checks in. So again-thanks.

I have SO much stuff to share it’s ridiculous! But I have to keep you wanting to come back-so am going to do it all a little at a time.

I had a happy mail day today let me tell you :D. I got lots of new goodies that you will see over the next couple days, including my much awaited Paper Trey!! WAHOOOO!

Another new set came! Its by C.C. Designs, and is being released VERY SOON! Its a Halloween set. When I saw this particular image in the set I was ecstatic! I thought it was super cute!!!

What little girl has NOT been a cat for Halloween? Its a must do at least once right?

It reminded me of this picture I have of Alexa at 3 years old.

alexa as a cat

She was just starting to walk on her own (hence the wide wobbly gait and look in the photo!) and it was her first school party. I had her wear black turtle neck, and pants. I had sewn on a feather boa for her tail-which she did manage to rip off by the end of the party.

 I made the little pumpkin bag she is holding for her as well as her 22 classmates. I put everyones anme on each bag. You may remember my post a while back about doing things for school. This was one of the many things I’ve done. Lesson learned as the kids tried to peel their names off the bags. EEK! I wanted to die.

Anyway-isnt she cute?

I also have this photo of ME at 4 years old as a cat.

me as a cat My mom made my costume. Much more creative than Alexa’s one I whipped together.

I think Amber will have to be cat this Halloween to go along with the tradition! Then Ill have to make a SmileBox creation of the 3 of us! I’ll have to ask my mom is she was ever a cat at this age! Then I will need the photo.

OK OK I know you are here to see the cat card! Who really cares where my love for the stamp originated, and all the blah, blah blah right? All I can say is this set is totally adorable. I’m honestly not a huge Halloween fan, but all the cute sets that have been released by everyone are really swaying me to creating more in that theme.

Purrfect Halloween card Purrfect Halloween!

Is she not the cutest cat evah? I had to use flock on her so she is nice and fuzzy! Doesn’t she look like Alexa’s old photo?

I loved the bright non-traditional colors that this Salsa paper byJunkitz allowed me to create.

The pumpkin and sentiment are also from the set.

I cut the mouth out from the pumpkin, and layered some cardstock behind it. I also colored with my glitter pens so more sparkle and depth-

I had to add the layer of glitter paper by DCWV!

The stitched ribbon is May Arts. Love it all!

So there you have my Purrfect Halloween card.

I also created some other cool stuff that I will share tomorrow. It will be using some more NEW Releases!!

Let me know what YOU have for cool Halloween traditions. Share a cool recipe or a fun event or story! I totally LOVE hearing from you all. I always laugh when you share your funny stories. I’d even love to hear what you think your kids will be for Halloween.

As always thanks for reading 😀
