Welcome to the Monday installment of the

Only one more Monday to share our EAD projects with you :(
As you probably know, EAD will no longer be taking orders and
will be closing their doors at the end of this month.
 **You should be here from Rose's Blog**

My daughter went to her very first Halloween party over
the weekend.  I can't remember ever buying my kids a costume.  
We've always used resources from around the house!  
Yes, call me a tight-wad I don't care LOL
Let me share what she came up with....she called herself a 'nerd ballerina'
I thought she looked like Junie B Jones :)

 Ahhh, thank goodness for Dance costumes, right!?!
She wanted a little 'hostess' gift for her friend, so
we came up with this:

Clear pillow boxes are just perfect for vinyl from EAD!
We literally finished this in 5 minutes...and her friend was 
absolutely ecstatic!  Win, Win!

**Off now to visit Amy's Blog**
