Nikki Sivils sweetness

School starts in about an hour, and our little man woke up early today. He came running out of his bedroom and said "Mommy, am I in grade 1 now?" He is super excited and I'm sure there will be a bunch of things to share after school.

This month, PK Glitz had a few challenges and I decided (although last minute) to enter the sketch challenge. I absolutely love Halloween, so I grabbed my stash of Boo-tiful by Nikki Sivils.These little ghosts are just the sweetest I tell ya.

We've got a few colors of glitter and one of my favorite embossing powders. I figured I'd try my hand at a paper bow. Not to shabby.

I love distressing the edges on Halloween projects. Gives that little bit of "spookiness".

Now since I was in a cute mood, I also made a really "tweet" card using a new release from Nikki Sivils called My Friend Birdie. To  make these little love birds super cute, I added some Bakers Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

A little hair bow for the Miss and a bow tie for Mr Birdie. I also cut out a small piece of blue patterned paper, to give the little Missy wings.

I hope that you all have a fantastic day today. Many of you have children that are going back to school. Enjoy the moment.

Until next time
