Watercolored Halloween Treat Bag / The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop Week #13

Pin It
Hey y'all. Happy Thursday! Just one more day until the weekend. Woo-Hoo! Hope your week is an Amazing one.

First off let me say thanks for bearing with me yesterday as I missed posting and simply joined Tuesday's card up to a new post. I had already planned to do that, but I had also planned on giving you a new post. For those of you that follow me, I had a family emergency yesterday and just wanted to give you an update. My daughter is almost 5 months pregnant and started throwing up & having right lower abdominal pain Tuesday night. After spending 10 hours in the E.R. getting 2 Ultra-sounds and another 2 hours on the ward awaiting an MRI we found out 3 things. 1- We're really thankful that her husbands in the military and she is receiving Military Medical Care, 2- She's having a baby girl, Tooey (Baby 2.0) is now Princess Tooey, and 3- She had appendicitis. So, after a very long day, she went to surgery at 5pm and I am happy to announce both of my princesses are doing well. I'm forgiven for not posting, right? :)

Here's what I had planned on posting. It's also a Blog Hop so make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to see everyone's creations and to join in the fun-

Halloween Treat Bag featuring
Watercolored and Brayered Greeting Card Kids Stamp Set.
I did this project for my September Team Swap. The bag itself is like this one that I did earlier this season. The focal panel though is CASE'd from the Fantabulous (why yes, that really is a word and the correct usage of it) Michelle Zindorf. I changed mine just a little to make it my own, but here's the original.  I started with a base of Lucky Limeade and made my sweet little bag. It's just the right size for a small gift or treat for someone special. The panel was adhered with Dimensionals and I used a piece of Ruffled Limeade Ribbon to hold it closed.

Here's a closer look-

Oh! How precious is she!?! I used my Blender Pens and Classic Ink Pads on Watercolor Paper to design this little darling. I then fussy cut and adhered her to my brayered and sponged background.

I used the flourishes from Everything Eleanor like the inspiration piece but changed the position a little and then added 3-D pumpkins instead of stamped ones-

I love making punch-are pumpkins this time of year. They're just so easy and so sweet.

Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.

Please also Remember that October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month-
Love Does NOT Hurt!
