I used black cardstock for each, and the images used on the fronts are 'Bat Scratch Rub-Ons' by Imaginisce. I also matted with coordinating cardstocks and used miscellaneous ribbons.

I used black cardstock for the base on each, plus a variety of patterned papers. The stamped images are from SU's Batty for You set, with coordinating punched scalloped and smaller circles. **I must thank my very dear gal pal, Rochelle, for so graciously stamping the images and punching the coordinating circles! Rochelle, you ROCK!!
These holders can also hold any of the other snack size candy bars. They make great class treats and party favors, as well!! I have posted a smaller picture below to show an inside view:

Alyssa went to her first dance at middle school Friday night. It was the Homecoming Social. She was soooo excited! Her cousin, Lauren, came over to get her all fixed up, while I, of course, took pictures. Alyssa and her girlfriends had a blast and danced until midnight!!

I am hoping to be back to blogland soon, so please be patience and bear with me! The room I seem to be concentrating on the most, seems to be my craft room! heehee So, I hope to be back in gear soon and making stuff to post!
This is another altered project I did for my craft room. Actually, for the door to my craft room.
I bought the piece of wood already in the oval shape at Wal-Mart, then had my wonderful, handy neighbor, George, drill two holes across the top, for me to run ribbon for hanging. I painted the back, and around the sides, with acrylic paint, called Fresh Foliage. Then, I added the patterned paper onto the front with Mod Podge.
**Note -- the pattern paper is actually a color copy of the curtains for the craft room. I just took the curtains to my local copy/print shop and ask for a color copy. That way, I was able to match the sign to thing in my room.**
After the Mod Podge dried, I adhered my 'welcome' lettering and some coordinating blossoms. Lastly, I threaded dark brown, velvet rope through the drilled holes and tied knots on the front, so that I would have something to hang my sign by. (I know you can hardly see the rope, due to the photo being taken on dark background. . .sorry)

Look at the fun goodies I got in the mail from my gal pal, Rochelle.
She and I are fans of the show, Ace of Cakes, on the Food Network. So, when she found some Charm City Cakes stickers, she sent me some! What a sweetie pie! She also included this adorable 'Thinking of You' card.
Thank you, Rochelle, for being so thoughtful!!
