Smeared Ink Reunion Blog Hop

Hey guys, it's a Smeared Ink Reunion Blog hop!!!!!  I am super excited about this!  From the beginning of Smeared Ink my favorite stamps have always been the grumpies!!! So when I first learned about this blog hop I knew I had to pull them out and play with them again!  I also trade pocket letters with a group of ladies in Idaho.  It's how we stay in touch most of the time!  Although I am late on a pocket letter, but they understand.  Anyway I love how the grumpies are sassy and smartassy so I wanted to incorporate them into my summer pocket letter!  Hope you enjoy the hop!

Hey guys, this week at WWATC our sponsor is A Day For Daisies and our theme is Hearts.  Oh my gosh this image is so stinking cute, I can hardly handle it!!!  Now I picked this for my daughter who loves Elephants!!

I colored him with my ZIG clean color real brush pens, I LOVE those things.  The papers are from a SSS card kit last year.

Pocket Letter reveal

OK guys, here it is the pocket letter reveal...  As you can see they are similar but not exactly the same.  The goodies I put in them are just some I had from my stash... I wrapped some washi tape around some acetate I had and punched the corners to make it look like a tag.  Stamped some images from some way old Halloween stamp sets, added some tags from the Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland collection, some stickers, some wooden embellies... The blank space in the top center of each is for a note I am writing to each of my friends... I hope you have a wonderful Halloween!!!

Treat Bags

So in our new neighborhood we don't get very many trick-or-treaters, or so I am told. So I have decided to make some treat bags!!  Of course I will have extra candy on hand but the first 25 or so treater's will get a special bag filled with goodies!!!  So I have decided to use up more of my sticker stash to decorate these bags!
