Fall Blog Hop- Cricut Circle

CLICK HERE for the Cindy Loo cartridge GIVEAWAY Welcome to the Fall Blog Hop with the Cricut Circle Sisters! You should be coming from the very talented Scrapalette's blog . If you've just happened to come across my blog please check out each of these talented ladies blogs. You will want to start at Kristen's blog for the beginning of the hop. Today I have a fall goodie bag for you. My family loves fall and nothing is more fall than candy corn. But my family loves covered pretzels more than candy corn. So I took pretzels and used colored choc. discs to make the pretzels as cute as candy corn. After I dipped them I sprinkled some with colored sugars and left some plain. I think the plain ones look the best. For the topper I used paper from a g.c.d. paper pack I think I bought at Micheals. The card stock is the back of the 2 sided paper. I used the Thanksgiving solutions cartridge and cut the pumpkin shape at 1 1/4". I cut the image 2 times. Once in brown and in dark orange and then I cut just the pumpkin shape in a med orange and in green. When layering, my bottom image is the brown pumpkin with the swirls. I then cut the swirls off the dark orange layer and glued that to the brown layer. The final layer is the med. orange pumpkin and the green stem. I stamped swirls on the green checked paper and then used a Pink By Design stamp to stamp the sentiment that says "Life is sweeter with you". I then glued the pumpkin on the top layer of paper. I put my covered pretzels in the bag and then put the brown paper topper on the bag and stapled it thru the top of the bag. I then attached the green checked layer. The staples are covered with the top layer of paper and they don't disturbed the finished look of the bag topper. You can't have a blog hop with out blog candy so become a follower and leave a comment here and you will be in the drawing for the Cindy Loo cartridge. I moved my blog from it's old site and as a Thank You to everyone that is following me on my new blog I'm giving away this wonderful cartridge.
