Wonderful, Wonderful Times With Marc - Trick or Treat Bags.

Trick or Treat Bags Sizzix bat dieOn Wednesday afternoon I returned home after three wonderful days with Marc. Leaving was such a wrench, as I had such a lovely time and I love Marc and Rick and the girls (the dogs) with all of my heart. In fact I am filling up now as I write ….. silly sausage!! To keep myself  occupied on the train going home I tried to write everything we did down to blog …. with Marc’s voice and laughter as we worked still echoing in my head.
Big Love NotebookWe did so much in such a short time …… we glittered like there was no tomorrow and as I left, Marc, in a certain light, twinkled like a Halloween Christmas tree possessed!!!!!!

On Tuesday night we made Marc’s Halloween Trick or Treat bags, it is a very happy evening that will stay with me forever, partly because Marc was a hard and demanding task master!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We used Kraft lunch bags for the base (99p for 10 from Home Bargains),  while Marc cut out the phrases in appropriate spooky colours and a whole flock of bats from his new Sizzix Halloween themed dies ……….

…… I doodled on the bats with a white gel pen and added webs and spiders, faux stitching  and other bits of fiddlefart to the bags. 
We were very chuffed with ourselves ….. we finished at about 2.00am, fortified with erm….. a little liquid refreshment, I haven’t stayed up so late in ages ….. it was soooooooooo much fun and evening of very happy companionship which as I said at the beginning I will remember and treasure forever. Happy Days!

Hi Helen. Glad you had such a great time, and sad for you that it is over already! Love the trick or treat bags, adding the white lines to the bats etc makes such a difference. Have a good weekend. Take care.

As we read we can feel the bond of friendship between you and Marc. I come across him on a couple of craft forums and he does seem a very nice guy.
Love the Halloween bags - how could you give them away to trick or treaters?
