Just Us Girls Template Challenge and Fun News!

Do you want the Just Us Girls challenge or the fun news first?.......Well I hate surprises, so I'll tell you my fun news first! A while ago, Lauren Meader (My Time Made Easy) asked me to be a guest designer for her September release! I was so excited that she asked and of course accepted! Well, a couple of weeks ago, she asked me to be a PERMANENT member of her team! How exciting is that? Also new to the team is Tammy Hershberger! I'm so excited to be working with such a talented team! I'll be posting my sneak in a few days, so make sure you keep checking in! It's another great release! You can check out all the sneaks at the MTME blog.

So now onto my JUGs post. We are sponsored this week by Clear & Simple Stamps. We are all using the set called Spooky Sweets and one of the Clear & Simple templates which you can find here. I used the treat pack template.

I used Marigold Morning (remember that one?) as my base and a Halloween stack from K&Company. I punched an oval in the base and a scallop oval in the dp for the handle. Love the way that looks. I placed black glitter dots on either side of the opening. I didn't have any Halloween candy to put into the treat pack, so I made my own (sort of!). I stamped and colored three pumpkins and taped them to some popsicle sticks. There's a black satin bow that is tied around the treat bag that didn't come out very clear in the picture. Some filler in the bag and it was done!

Now be sure to stop by the JUGs blog and check out the challenge. There is some blog candy to be won for this challenge! And the girls have more Spooky Sweet goodness to share with you!

Thanks for stopping in today and enjoy your weekend!
