My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Halloween Kiddo

Hi Everyone,

Well, I am still being plagued with this stupid cold I brought back from the island vacation I had. Blech.  I am so sick of being sick!  I really shouldn't complain, I haven't had a cold in over 2 years, but c'mon...Enough is enough.

Anyhoo...I'm FINALLY getting a chance to post my project I made with my recently acquired Amber Ink products.  Have you seen the cute stuff she has for Halloween? Oh my word, ADORABLE!

I'm playing along at the Amber Ink Challenge blog, where the theme is...Dun, Dun, DUN...Halloween!  Yay!

I love to make treat holders of all kinds, so I decided the new iPaper (Spider Polka Dots) and Bat Kid Cutie digi would be perfect for my label box.  
It's a pizza box design that I altered last Christmas to fit a gift card, but it works for snacks too. See?

  I used the Large Rectangle Nestabilities for the cut outs and embellished it with a die cut bat and hand stamped sentiment.  Isn't he darling...And he's so excited about the holiday too! Actually all of the new HeyLoWeen Kiddos are super cute.  I had a hard time choosing just one! LOL

These are just some of my favorite treats that bring out the kid in me :)

Now, here are a few more photos from my trip...I wanted to do a whole post, but since that's not going to happen, I will just add them if and when I feel like it.

We saw so many pretty rainbows.
Where I wish I lived! This was in St. Thomas.
Us looking decent.
A little crab in Dominica.
I will need to look at this photo around January 15th when I'm buried in snow and can't take it anymore.
Funky Chair.
Heaven on earth.
Warm Chocolate Melting Cake.  Someone at our table ordered this every night.
These couples at our table were celebrating their 20th Anniversary too.

Well, that's all I'm up for today.  Have you played along with the Amber Ink Challenge Lynne, who won last month got a WHOPPER of a prize!  Who knows, it might be you next!

You're only supposed to bring home wonderful memories and great pictures (which you did) - not a cold. Hope you feel better already.
