Try It Out with a "T" #87

For our challenge today we were to create a fun fall themed gift. I'll admit it, I was NOT in the mood to create a project. But I thought about it and came up with a little something. Hehe!

Be sure to visit Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see what the other design team members came up with!

For my gift I created little tags to put on Tootsie Roll Pops using the newly released Little Acorns by Victoria Case for SCACD. (Only a few Tootsie Pops were eaten during the making of this gift..LOL)

Okay, so the plan got altered a bit when my Belle came in to see what I was working on and saw a few of the Mini Little Acorns colored and cut out..her eyes lit up and she asked "are you making paper dolls for me?"  Seriously, I couldn't tell her no...so we went to the store and got the craft sticks and now she has her own set of Mini Little Acorn paper dolls.

As we were finishing up, Belle decided she's going to have a story about the Mini Little Acorns. Here she is with the title...



and here she is with all her new puppets...


and here they are by themselves....
