Halloween-Fall Swap

 Mr. Retro, Doyle and I have been on vaca for the past week.
Staying in this, our sweet little Aliner camper.
and looking at scenes like this.
I'll be posting about that later, the trip and my fun finds.
No one likes vacation to end, but I came home knowing my swap package
would be waiting.  Something to look forward to. 
I joined Deb and Sandy's Fall-Halloween swap, which was to decorate
a cookie cutter in either a Fall or Halloween theme, depending on
your partners request.  My assigned partner was Sue from
Sue requested a Fall theme swap, so I chose that too.
A great theme for fun and festive packages!
Woohoo, look at all these packages, wrapped up so pretty & fun.

Sue not only decorated the leaf shaped cookie cutter (sweet!!!), she also made me this adorable apple themed tag. The tag can hang or stand, yes!   I LOVE them both.  My friend Sue is a very talented crafter who has hosted quite a few of her own swaps.  I was so lucky to have her craft just for little old me!  :)

Then she enclosed all these fun goodies; journal book, little chip boards, embellishments, warming melts, and such special candy~from a homemade candy store in her town...yum!.  My fav of all the goodies is the little wooden rolling pin wrapped in acorn patterned ribbon, sweet! Sue spoiled me!!!
Thanks so much Sue for being such a generous and creative partner!

 Since Sue has received and shared her package, I can show you what I sent to her.
 & the cookie cutter I decorated. 
 I couldn't decide on one design, so I decided to glue a magnet
to the center of the cutter so she could change the look.  The ME verse
was already magnetized. I glued magnets to the back of the other designs I made, 
and voila, just lift and replace for 4 different looks!

 That's it for today.  Do you know much dirty laundry there is after 6 days of camping? ;)
 Thanks again to Deb and Sandy (see sidebar) for hosting this fun swap.
Halloween-Fall SWAP!
& to Sue for being a great partner!

 Have a terrific weeks friends!  I've done some catching up on my blog
reading, but still have lots to go.
