Make It Monday # 266 That's a Wrap!

That's A Wrap is the video Lexi has over at Capture the Moment for this weeks MIM.
She has three download pages from her blog to help with positioning your stamps on the gift paper.  I used a couple of stamps from Nativity Silhouettes.

Hope you all had a great Halloween.  We had a wonderful night...perfect temperature for walking around the neighborhood!  We don't get any Trick or Treaters because we are out in the country.  We always took our girls over to my in-laws to walk their neighborhood and my daughter goes to her in-laws to do the same.  Her MIL makes a big batch of chile and cornbread, has desserts and treats and we have a good time enjoying the company and answering the door.  She buys the full size candy bars and word gets around that is the house to visit!!

Heart Hugs, friends!

  5. This is such a sweet wrapping paper Colleen! I love the images you used. Your Halloween tradition sounds very similar to how ours used to be when the kids were younger. My parents (my dad now) lived in a neighborhood and my mom always put on a warm and hearty meal for all of us before we'd go around their block with the kids. What wonderful and fun memories your post evoked. <3

  7. Lovely background stamping in beautiful color!! We had a great Halloween, but would love more trick or treaters. We live out in the country and we only got one. But, I made him up a special decorated treat bag. He made one fab storm trooper...so cute!

  9. LOVE that you can make your own wrapping paper with matching tag. So pretty! Great job with the positioning ... and the colours. Very festive! Sounds like you had a nice Halloween night. We usually have lots of trick 'or treaters, but not many this year. It's getting less and less as the kids in the neighbourhood get older. :) xx

  10. Oh how sweet is this! Love the stamps and the way you stamped them. I'm in love with the tag you made to match the paper, and the way you stamped that too. I also live in the country, and this year we had more than 30 trick or treaters. Parents drove them house to house, too far to walk. Never had that many before. Usually one or two. I always buy candy whether or not kids come! :))

  12. Your wrapping paper is so very sweet, Colleen. The matching tag is pretty also. Sounds like your Halloween was a fun time. I don't get as many kids as we did when we first moved to this area ~ 100 trick or treater's was the norm...got 20 this year! But, they were little cuties :-)
