Sometimes we plan things and they don't work out as we planned! For instance, I went hunting for cute treats for Halloween. They were chocolate witches on a stick. And I thought to myself these are just perfect for the girls. I will create tags for the girls and give it to them on Halloween with the rest of the treats. Well I had a little mouse that went into my stash and took the three witches. What is wrong with this picture below? I now have 3 ghosts that don't really match the cute tags that I made. My little mouse Jordan found the stash and thankfully didn't eat them all. She did share with her sisters but left mom without witch goodies for my project. I am laughing about it today. That little Jordan of mine! She is quite the number. Last night, we were having dinner as a family and I asked Jordan, so how was your play date with Ella today? And as I am asking her this and looking at her, I see that she is missing a chunk of hair on her right side. When I say chunk, believe me it's true. I asked her, Jordan did you cut your hair? She said no without looking at me in the eyes and making her "Jordan Grin", the one that you know is not a good sign of a grin. Well after 10 minutes of negotiating, she said that her and Ella had cut their hair. Yep just like that, for fun! Seriously! I never experience this with my two oldest girls. This little one is making me live all kind of things and she is only 6! It did make me reflect how the 3 girls are so different, even though we raised them the same. I don't know if it's like that in your home, but it's like that in mine. Sometimes I wonder why? The best part about having them all so different is that I can find different qualities in all of them, and it makes me so proud to be their mom. So take a little pick at my witches/ghosts treats and a pic at Jordan the guilty treat eater.
How simple, sometimes, I forget to go back to the basics. I colored my cute Jordan witch with my watercolor pencils #101879 and blended the coloring with the blender pens #102845. Even kids can do this.

Doesn't she look guilty?
I used the stamp set Out on a limb from the Holiday Mini catalog. It made me think of Jordan and I love this stamp because it includes lots of mini stamps that I can punch out for treats.
