Trick or Treat at My Craft Spot!

Happy Monday, dear friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today begins a new challenge at My Craft Spot, with the fun theme of Trick or Treat!

For my project, I made a glassine treat bag that will hold freshly baked cookies. :o)
My sweetheart and I do not engage in Halloween, so instead we celebrate Autumn's beauty and harvest blessings. I will be baking him cookies and sharing some in this happy harvest bag. :o) I embossed the glassine bag for a pretty background using the Provo Craft Victoria folder.
The sweet sentiment is from Banner Sentiments- Fall, which I cut out with a Spellbinders Lacey Pennants and inked with Spiced Marmalade distress ink. My leafy swag was made with the gorgeous Fall Border metal die set, using old Bo Bunny papers. (I'm using every centimeter!) The pinecone accents are fussy-cut from a DP from my stash. 

My swag hangs from a bow of Harvest Wine crinkle ribbon and a Wild Orchid Crafts rose. For rustic texture, I layered it atop burlap.
The pumpkins for my pumpkin patch are from the Fall Wheelbarrow metal die set, which I simply adore. The curlicues are just so sweet! The paper is from Heartfelt Creations' Sun Kissed collection, chosen to coordinate with the embossed background and swirly-papered leaves. They're inked in Spiced Marmalade.

Be sure to check out my fabulous DT sisters' creations for more inspiration! I hope you play along with us this week... I can't wait to see what you create! :o) Thank you for visiting and have a beautiful day!
