Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Bootastic

Hey everyone!  Today is the first day of the Mama Elephant August release highlights and the whole DT is showcasing the set Bootastic!   (Which is available on the site NOW by the way)  We are big fans of Halloween over here, so you know I love this set!   The little figures in this set are too adorable!  I just wanna pinch their little cheeks:) 


Like I said, Halloween is a big deal at our house.  The kids have gotten too big to go trick-or-treating, but we spent many years working on costumes and decorating the house.    This set makes me think back to a couple our favorite costumes over the years:)  (The kids will be so embarrassed that I'm posting these pics, but they know how I roll, lol)


Now back to my project:)  Let's face it, Halloween is all about the candy!  So instead of a card, I pulled out some of my wax paper favor bags and made a quick candy favor bag.  


The little hand-cut coffin opens to reveal...


A cute mummy in a gold-lined coffin!  (I should have done a sarcophagus!)  I finished it off with the perfect sentiment!  The "PEEKABOO" part of the stamp is and outline font, so I used a white pencil to randomly fill it the letters for an aged look.  I think I have more fun with Halloween than the kids;)

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope that you get a chance to drop by the rest of the DT to see what fun they had with this fun set!

Mahalo and Aloha,
