Spooky Paper Pumpkin Goodies

Paper Pumpkin Sept 2018 - www.stampingwithdi.com

I finally got around to getting some candies for my fun September Paper Pumpkin goodie bags.  I am back on my Fast Metabolism Diet so no candy for me.  But I am down 5 pounds! Yay!!!  The guys will enjoy the whole bag of candy corn flavored M&M's that must have been tossed around the store. They were all chipped and horrible, no way was I putting them in the bag...and I was not picking the good ones out either.

Don't forget to get your Paper Pumpkin subscriptions, they make great gifts too.

 I am so glad that Last Man Standing is back on TV, I totally loved the first episode how they made fun of moving to a new network, having a new actress play one of the daughters, it was so neat to see everyone. Do you watch it? We also watched Cool Kids that came on after, with Vicki Lawrence from the Carol Burnett show, plus some other fun characters from old favorites like Martin Mull, David Alan Grier (who I hardly recognized with gray hair) and the hilarious Leslie Jordan. It was pretty funny too. Will be interesting to see if they have cameos from famous people on it. They did have Jamie Farr on there from MASH.

I have my last round of Fall Social in the morning, can't wait to see everyone.

Have an awesome Saturday, thanks for stopping in.



Spooky Pumpkins all in a Row

I don't decorate the house a lot for the seasons, I mean I will put a bunny out at Easter, maybe add some spring flowers or so, but I do like to put out some fun Halloween stuff, and definitely Christmas. I do usually have a fun kitchen towel hanging on the stove...I know be very scared Martha Stewart.

So I can't wait to see September's Paper Pumpkin. I will be ordering extra kits!!

Halloween is always a fond memory growing up, we would get all dressed up, and in Canada, there was no walking to houses as we lived in the country and houses were quite a ways apart, so we went in the car, but it was always fun cause back then people would try to guess who you were, now a days it is just give me the candy and go. I also remember many a Halloween having to put out winter coat over our costume, now how scary is that?

I remember when we lived in Mesa, and it was right after Eric was born, (almost 30 years ago can you believe it?) Jeff's Mum came to help us out with a newborn as we had no idea what we were doing.  So when the trick or treaters came Mum handed them a big handful of chocolates, and I was like "oh no, they get one" and she learned why pretty quick as we ran out of candy so fast, she got in her purse and was handing out sticks of gum and I was like let's turn out the light. We had gone through about 5 bags of candy lickety split.  She could not get over it.  Since we have lived in Queen Creek/San Tan Valley, we just get a couple of the neighbors kids. So handfuls of candies it is...ha! This year Eric even had candy at his little house...ha!

OK back to the Paper Pumpkin. October is on its way, and that means you will be searching in every spooky nook and cranny for a bit of papercrafting fun. Paper Pumpkin has just what you need—a frightfully delightful kit in a scary-cute, special edition box. So if you have friends and neighbors who love Halloween, now's the time to order extra kits and get together and make them. You’ll get the handmade Halloween look without the fuss.

It's a Paper Pumpkin Royal Wedding

Paper pumpkin june 2018 www.stampingwithdi

Ok maybe not that fancy, but Paper Pumpkin & Stampin' Up! are teaming up...so that is kinda like a marriage right? Didn't Cinderella arrive in a carriage to her wedding that used to be a pumpkin? Or was that a ball? Gosh I don't remember...ha!

Here's what Stampin' Up! had to say about this fun adventure:

"The Paper Pumpkin team has thought long and hard about how we might create a bridge to introduce Paper Pumpkin customers to the additional products that Stampin’ Up! has to offer, and we’re happy to announce a solution that we think you’re going to love: a kit that coordinates with a suite in the 2018–2019 annual catalog."

Broadway suite

OMG! I want to make it all!! I love the colors!!!!!!!!

Because perfectly coordinated products have always been one of Stampin’ Up!’s key strengths, they designed June’s Paper Pumpkin kit as a stepping stone to the spectacular Broadway Bound suite on p. 68–69 of the 2018–2019 annual catalog.

I can hardly wait to see what it is how about you?

Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in.
