Christmas Pines Baggie Toppers

This project is made just like the one I showed you last, only I used the Ovals Collection Framelits instead of the Circles Collection Framelits. 
 
 
I embossed one of our Glassine Bags with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  What a cool look it gave the bag!

 
Here are the basic instructions again, but remember I switched the circles for ovals on this one.  The bag is 4-3/4" wide, so I made the topper 5" wide.

Jolly Friends Baggie Toppers

I have something super cute to share with you today!  Check out these little baggie toppers for our 3 x 6 Gusseted Cellophane Bags.
 
 
I love a new creative find and this one is inspired by Valerie Moody.  Thanks Val!

 
You can cut them with a curvy angle.
 
Or you can cut them straight across and round the corners.
 

 
Here is a photo of what the front and back look like and below is a photo tutorial on how to make one for yourself.

Our Annual Pumpkin Baseball Game

It's pumpkin baseball time of year again *Ü* 
Usually we play right after Halloween but the last couple of years we've had to wait until Thanksgiving weekend when Benjamin is home from school.
 
 
The 'baseballs' that survived the season.  A few were pretty squishy and we had to throw some away that the mom said would make too much of a mess.  Eeeew!

 
Nicholas is up first and he smashed every single one thrown to him...therefore announcing, 'who needs practice!'
 

 
I am so bummed that I had my camera on the wrong setting and didn't notice it until I had loaded the pictures on the computer.  No crisp clear shots this year. :(


 
 
Benjamin was up next.  Yep, he knew this one was going to get all over him!  Tee-Hee!

 
The pitcher and the lazy catcher.  She knew better than to try and catch those!


 


 
Dad takes a swing at them too...thank goodness I'm just the cameraman.  Although I have hit my share and taken one for the team many times throughout the years!

 
The aftermath of a great time.  The whole yard pretty much looked like this!

 
Clean up crew trying to convince the catcher to get up off some of the smashed pumpkins.  Her was tired, baseball is hard work for old girls.
