Monster Bash

Good morning! Today, it's time for another recipe challenge, and with one of my favorite holidays to decorate for, comes hay rides, bobbing for apples, bonfires, hot chocolate, and of course sweet treats to complete a fun filled Monster Bash! These little meringue treats, are easy to make, and fun to eat for all of your little ghosts and goblins.
This fabulous double sided paper came to me from Julie at Scrapbook Store at Your Door, and I just love everything about it. From the distressed look, to all the flourish vines connecting the pumpkins. It was a perfect match for my From the Crypt stamp set from Stampin' Up!. Be sure to check out all the fabulous new kitchen themed items Julie is carrying, just for your recipe scrapping needs. I popped up the little bats on paper springs to make it look like they are flying, added some ink to the edges of the image and recipe, and ABRACADABRA! A fast and easy recipe guaranteed to scare your tastebuds into begging for more!! That makes me think of the old Bugs Bunny Cartoon. Do you remember the one with bugs and Dracula? Everytime Bugs Bunny said the word Abracadabra, Dracula would turn into a bat. What a classic!!! Okay, back to the recipe page... I think with all the distressing I did on this page that it must have satisfied my need for bling, because all I used for embellishment on this one was a black button with the orange thread. The sentiment for this page came from the Stampin' Up! set Grateful Greetings.
I'm so happy you could stop by today. I hope you enjoyed a fabulous weekend full of wonderful blessings, and I wish you more of the same today! Happy stampin', friends!!!
Love Ya!
