Hi Folks!
Hope everyone is OK? It's been quite a while since I posted but I'm here this morning to show you my DT project for the new challenge starting over at Sparkles Monthly where our new theme is 


I decided to make a little gift bag which I plan to put some chocolate goodies in a bit nearer to October 31st - if I bought them now they wouldn't be around by the end of the month!!

The papers are all from my scraps folders, including the last piece of Doodlebug Halloween stripey paper which I have been hoarding for years. It just shouts Halloween to me!!
I added some very old chipboard thickers to make the 'Boo' sentiment, they have been hiding in my sticker drawer for at least 3 years!!

The cute kitty is of course by Penny Black and is called 'Beware of Cat' - he doesn't look very scary to me!!

Thanks for visiting today and do pop over to the Sparkles Monthly home page to see the great inspiration from the rest of the team!!
