I have always loved Fall.  The cool mornings and evenings, the smell of the first time the heater is turned on for the year, candles burning and soup cooking in the crock pot, give me a warm feeling inside.

I love the colors of Autumn and the all the decor that comes with the season.  It's the beginning of a season of holidays and I really get motivated to create.

I decided to make some Halloween tags for the girls.  I love candy corn and I incorporated the candy into a tag.
I found these cute little plastic tubes and filled them with jelly beans, m&m's and candy corn.  I also found cute little hair clips and 2 of my granddaughters have just had their ears pierce.  I found some
cute little Halloween earrings and placed them into the eyes of the attached black cats.

The hair clips, I just added to the top of the tags.  I rubber stamped the owl image and embossed with black embossing powder.
I made several different tags, all with candy, but no earrings for the younger girls yet.

I found some spider rings at Michaels and added one to the top of the candy tube.  Martha Stewart has this cool black glitter that looks like a black cat's hair when standing on edge!

For the 2 younger girls, I thought a tag, the shape of the candy corn would be cute.  I added black ric rac, flowers and 3 stickers.

I also found some miniature black clothes pins and just added a pumpkin sticker.

Another tube filled with my favorite candies.

Michaels have the cutest ribbons out for Halloween.  I combined the candy corn ribbon with glimmer misted seam binding.

I have a seasonal tree that I decorate for each holiday.  It's always fun to see the look on the girl's faces when I change the decorations.  Alessondra helped me this year with the 
fall tree.

So I look forward to cooler weather, holiday baking and the house filled with the scent of pumpkin and cinnamon and little granddaughters saying "more candy corn please, Nindy"
