Damask Divas Laughing Lola Blog Hop!

Welcome to my blog!  I know you have been waiting for this!  It is finally time for another Damask Divas Blog Hop!  Be sure to tune in I am sure you are all enjoying the fantastic paper creations of my teammates by now, so let's get down to business...

(If any links aren't live yet, just check out the hop Oct. 1 when it will be free of kinks!)
If you hopped over from Traci's Blog then you are in the right place!  If not, you can find the lineup  HERE at the Damask Divas Blog. (Or you can just go back to Mandy's since hers is the first stop!)  ;)

The Laughing Lola Paper Packet is certainly a new favorite of mine from Close to My Heart's Autumn/Winter Idea Book.  I thought I would add a pop of Sunset CS to see if I could make her Halloween friendly, and I think it worked like a charm!  ;)

This fab little treat box cracker cut is on the Cricut Artiste Collection.  I used my ATG to put it together nice and tightly, then filled it with a Bath and Body PocketBac, decorated Hershey's Chocolate Nuggets, and Kisses! 

The Black Shimmer Trim is one of my all-time favorite embellishments to use for some serious bling.  Isn't the scallop cut on the ends of the box a great detail?!

Check out these Twist Ties I used to decorate the ends where the box gets tied shut...would you believe I was able to color them with my alcohol ink markers?  YEP!  I have also used my ink daubers to color them up as well!  :)

These Nugget candies are so fun to decorate with a simple scrap of 1 x 3 inch paper or cardstock.  I added this awesome spiderweb border found on the Artiste Cricut Cartridge to these as well.  SO easy!  The Dark Chocolate Kisses are are already the perfect color to go with my box!

I am going to give this nice little package to my kiddo's teacher to keep her happy and germ free for the Fall!  ;)

Thanks so much for hopping in today!  Your next stop on the hop (giggle) is Teri's Blog!  If you ever get lost, you can always check out the entire line-up over on the Damask Divas Blog.  Have a great time checking out all the creations and hope to see you here again soon!  :)
