You've Been Boo'd!!! (SSD #45)

Have you ever deleted an entire post? It is a sad thing to do. Just say'n.

Okay, now onto the fun stuff. Have you ever done the whole 'Boo' thing? Have you ever HEARD of the whole 'Boo' thing? Well, let me share because it is wicked crazy fun and you should know about it! Basically, you create a treat - big or small- whatever suits your fancy - and then attach a nifty little poem that says something to the effect of 'someone likes you and so they are giving you this treat, now copy this poem and pass it on.' Okay...so the poem should be *slight* more eloquent than that, maybe, but THAT, my dear friends, is why Skipping Stones Design rocks so much! You see, they have kindly created a stamp set that is JUST FOR THIS VERY THING! I mean, of course you can use if for lots of other stuff, too, but it is AWESOME for creating boo treats!

SSD #45 You've Been Boo'd!


Here are the pieces I created using the awesome new stamp set! LOVE! I used American Crafts cardstock as my base and then layered a random stamped circle over the Rusty Pickle Thriller patterned paper. I love the spooky designs in this paper line!

I added a black strip across the circle with the little Boo poem and then finished off the card with some black organza CTMH ribbon and a stamped hat that I colored with Prismacolor markers and finished with Liquid Glass. It looks SO neat in person!

For the treat topper, I used all coordinating papers and such and stamped the ghost from the SSD set to pop off. And...I would like to state on record that all candy that you see in this treat bag that I created over the weekend is STILL in that bag with the staples secured. That's pretty amazing. At least with me around. Just say'n.
