Some Halloween "Littles"

Hello Friends,

Wow, with all the beautiful projects from the ShopPumpkinSpice Design Team gals, I don't feel worthy of posting my little project here. But I had so much fun with Pumpkin making them, I just had to share.

How many of you have toddlers or pre-schooler's and find it difficult to find crafting time?  Well, I DO!! However, I feel very lucky that Pumpkin enjoys playing with paper just like mommy.  So, we decided to make a couple of cards this week.  She LOVES twine and some of the Lime Twist colors work perfect with the Halloween papers from both Echo park and MME.

Here are some pics of a couple of cards we made together. 








She enjoys 'holding' the paper while I cut and the 3 x 3 size is wonderful for her to pick some of the embellishments and 'help' me glue together the small papers.  We only do 'Fronts' so I can put them on a card base or tag later.  Pumpkin also has her own pair of safety scissors, so the scraps are all HERS... She love making 'confetti'. lol (didn't get a picture of that 'project')

She has just been introduced to STAMPING...she 'eeeekkkkkked' in excitement with the 'Happy Halloween'  & 'Trick or Treat' stamp from MPS Spooky-Puns.  (oh my, am I in trouble, Robyn is going to have a new follower)

Well, I though I would share my perfect solution to getting some crafting time into my busy day. Maybe you can use some ideas for your own little ones.  Crafting always seems to help me 'de-stress'

Thanks you so much for taking the time to check out my posting today.  I hope you got a 'smile' out of something you saw or got some inspiration to go do something crafty.
