Happy Wednesday Everyone! I hope you are all having a good week!!  This a.m. I fought blogger to get my post.  It kept losing my text.  Grrr.  So today you get the shortened version! This is why yesterday I took a well needed break from blogger. (LOL)  I also know the weather is becoming much cooler here and yesterday I spent the day doing things outside that needed to be done before it freezes or winter sets in.  Today I can do more blogging and crafting again after I home school my girls of course... I have a little bag I created.  We don't celebrate Halloween at our house but I like to make treats for my girls so they don't feel left out or anything.  We have a family fun night at our house.  This little witch from YNS is so darling I just had to create a treat bag for my dear daughter Meghan.  I did not use a template or die but rather created it on my own.  For a decorative edge at the time I used my curvy edge punch from Ek Success.  

The layout of my sketch follows the Midnight Madness sketch flipped on it's side.  The image is Your Next Stamp Cute Ellie Witch and her kitty

This treat bag is also for the following Challenges:
