October Downline Meeting

I always look forward to our group get together each month and this month was no exception.
I had the ladies over at my house last Thursday night for our monthly SU! Downline Meeting.
We had 14 in attendance, we enjoyed wonderful conversation, a delicious array of food & desserts, doing our make & takes, and of course, swapping.
I provided the make & takes projects for everyone to make.
Sizzix purse and Peppermint spiders

Here is the purse open:

Recipe for purses:
Hawaii Papaya DSP, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango

I made the door prize and Anita won. I filled a cute fall basket with tealight candles and clear glass candle holders with SU! rub ons on them. Also this frame, covered with Haiku DSP and then I stamped and colored the scarecrow and garden scene from the Happy Blessings set.
