House Mouse Monday Challenge #10 ~ Anything but A Card...

An Apple A Day...

Oh this challenge was a tough one for me. I just couldnt think of a "project", it's just not my thing. BUT, thanks to Martha Stewart's treat bag kits, I finally gave it a go and came up with this treatbag idea for mine. Now that Ive actually done it, I have my friend Carolyn to thank for giving me that badly needed "push".... :) I'll be ready to tackle on more fun projects in the future... :)

This treatbag was created with the HM stamp; Mudpie "Spitting Apple Seeds". # HMLR1015. The sentiment is computer generated. The main image is also covered with a transparency and silver brads to protect it from caramel smudges! :)

I think it might make a cute little "yummy treat" for a school teacher to show our appreciation. Or for kids on a special day. Or, for someone feeling a little under the weather. :)

Come play along with us at:

HM & Friends
