Mmmm.....kisses.....

Hello everyone!

Hopefully, it's not as cold and wet where you are, as it is here today.  Brrr.....  Since we knew the weather was going to be unpleasant, my friend Shirley came out, and boy, howdy, did we make a mess!  lol... she and I always have to try something new, and we have such a good time!  Today, we tried the year round calendar box that is featured on the Clear Dollar Stamp Blog.  Then we changed up the size and tried it again!  Of course, this was after Quiche Lorraine, and fruit bowl!  Mmmm......

What's better than Quiche and fruit bowl?   KISSES!  Hershey's kisses :)

Adela Rossol of Creations by AR, is a genius at 3-D paper craft templates.  Last week, she posted a planter box, and of course, I needed wanted it.  The current challenge came up at Challenges by AR, a Christmas challenge.  I immediately thought of Santa, and with a bit of red, black, and white, cardstock, that planter box became a Santa candy bowl!  If you get a chance drop by and enter the challenge!  



Have a good Friday...the weekend is just around the corner!

Be sure to stop by the Doodle Pantry Blog, on Sat., Nov. 6th - the new challenge will be up!

Be sure to stop back by here on Sunday, Nov. 6th, for the All Year Round Blog Hop, featuring the Year Round Calendar at Clear Dollar Stamps!  Since I worked with the month of January, I'm first on the hop!  Two lucky people will win the entire set!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.
