My Thoughts Exactly Halloween Release or want some candy?! muuuwaaa aaa aaaaaa

I was never much for Halloween until I gave birth to a couple of sugar junkies..then it became an opportunity to enjoy watching my kids in adorable costumes, my special Mommy drink while conversing with my neighbors! I love my neighborhood during Halloween, and now as my kids are getting more adventurous, they will shakily approach THAT house that goes over the top, that HOUSE that delights in scaring the pee out of my kids.  

This year I have both kids in ONE class, so to do a Halloween treat bag is definitely going to be done with style since My Thoughts Exactly has released these Freaking AWESOME Halloween stamps! Mind you these won't be just for  Halloween, I'm going to use these for all those Monster birthday cards and many of the phrases I use often like "Bite me!" "Witch".... you get the idea. 

So what I did to make this cute little treat bag was- used the creepy background paper cut to size, used my fly by bat from the Bee Witchin' Halloween Collection in different forms, shadows and a pointy shadow (which will remove the eyes and mouth) and the sign shape standard in SCAL coupled with Alyssa's stamps and the sign post, a couple of little bone brads, And of course Trendy Twine in Orange Licorice it went together really fast. Now here's where I tell you what I do wrong but this time I didn't get all excited to use adhesive and past the background paper on first before attaching the brads and all the fun stuff! I actually did it the right way:)
I used the Ghostly Greetings stamps 

pop dots are my friend:)
