The Pink Elephant - Color Challenge

Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge over at The Pink Elephant!  This week, the challenge is to use the colors...Orange, Black, and Purple!  Perfect for a little HALLOWEEN fun!

I whipped up this little treat bag while I was hanging out with some crafting friends in Denver this weekend!  Michele Gross of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps hosted a fabulous World Card Making Event!

 My pal, Kim, at Joyful Creations with Kim, has an eloquently written post that sums up our day/weekend much better than I can...go check it out!

Look at this great group of gals!  (Front) Annette, Danielle, Alyssa, (Middle) me, Noelle, Wida, Ceal, Carissa, (Back) Tenia, Michele, Lee, Kim, and Vivian!

I must give credit where credit is due...this project would never have come together if I hadn't used all of my friends' supplies and tools!  So, a big shout-out THANK YOU to...
Kim, for using her dies, bat punch, paper, stickles and twine!
Annette, for the sequins!
Ceal, for the washi tape!
Someone fabulous, for the use of the paper cutter and Big Shot machine...Michele, was that you?
Tenia, Wida, and Danielle for the great company at our crafting table!  Everyone else for the food, fun, hugs (real ones), and laughter!

Thanks again, Kim, for chauffeuring me around all weekend...I had a great time and loved getting to spend some REAL time with you!  Now, YOU have to come to Illinois!

I hope to finish up these treat bags and get some better photos of them later this month!  You would think I could've finished them at the 7-hour crafting event, but....there was more chatting than crafting!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It was so FUN! I am glad to see what you did with these fun straws! So glad you were able to visit-and I am so glad that we finally got to meet in person after all these years! ;) Hope you are sufficiently recovered from your whirlwind trip. *hugs*

It was so fun, Stacey, I'll be your chauffeur any time!! And, yes, I would love to come your way - as soon as I recover from last weekend!

I can't see these bags without a mental image of you punching out bats in my car between Archivers and dinner! You create incredible works of art even under pressure!
