Trick or Treat buckets using Pumpkin Carving cartridge

I was going make my boys a trick or treat bucket for this year and when I was at Michaels last week standing in the check out line they had these orange (they also had purple and black) buckets in the $1 bins near the cash registers.  I grabbed 6 of them so I could make them for some of our friends kids.  I used the Pumpkin Carving cartridge, but also used the George cartridge to cut a few of the triangles so that I could mix up the face cut I used on the Pumpkin Carving cart so that none of the buckets looked the same. 

I am going to fill Joseph's, Maria's, Jacquelyne's and Carson's buckets with a few treats before I give them to them next week! 






Thanks so much for looking!  Your comments brighten my day!

Yesterday was the Fall Walk fundraiser at my boy's school and it was a wonderfully fun day for the kids!  Mother Nature wasn't the most cooperative, but thankfully she held out until the last group was walking which just so happened to be the older kids, my Parker included.  It was fine at the very beginning of their time slot, but then it started to rain a bit.  THEN it started to HAIL!!!!!  The hail was only about the size of a pencil top eraser, but holy moly it was freaky!  The kids took cover underneath the entrance to the school while we had about a 5 minute delay and then everything stopped and the kids went back to walking!  All in all it was a great day for the kids and our school!

After the Fall Walk, Jim and I had to oversee Cheese Club for the school and on our way home there was the most beautiful rainbow just across our street!!!  Actually for a brief moment a double rainbow was visable!  I was able to capture some pretty nice shots on my camera that I just happened to have because of everything going on at the school that day.  Hopefully I will get a chance to upload those pictures today so I can share them with you!

Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!!!

LOVE these Melissa! You've just opened my eyes to MORE Halloween fun!!! Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog, and yes, just run your vellum through the big shot, sandwiched in an embossing folder to get the web you were asking about on the "creepy luminary" project. Have fun with that, and Happy Halloween to you and your family!
