"UnBOOlievable" Blog Hop

Happy Halloween!  Okay so I'm 5 days early - I am participating in an "UnBOOlievable" blog hop!  Get it???  UnBOOlievable??  I'm sure you can tell from our title this hop will be all about Halloween which is right around the corner.  I just love all the colors associated with Halloween and am excited to be in this hop.

If you came here from Christine of Hot Berry Designs, then you're in the right place!  If not, why don't you start at the beginning with Lisa of Honeybearz Designs and work you way through?  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
I decided to make some cute mini trick or treat bags that can be used as Halloween decorations.  I haven't decided what to put inside them yet -- probably some ... wait for it ... CANDY!!  

Aren't they cute!  They were so much fun to make.  I used our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut out the bags using Sunset and Black cardstock.  The bags can be found on page 23, Shift, Font Layer, < Star1 > cut at 5".  The "scary" faces can be found on our Artiste Cricut cartridge on page 77, E7, Accent 3, < Hallween >, and Shift, Accent 3, < Hallween > cut at 1 1/2".  The spiders also came from Artiste and can be found on page 77, E7, Shift, Accent 4, < Boo > cut at 3/4".
