Halloween Treat


I have a Cauldron & Potions display that I put up every year for Halloween. The kids love to look at it and since I'm a big Harry Potter fan, I like to think of it as Snape's potion cupboard. :) Each year I add to my potions collection and buy a new jar to go with my set. This year I decided to decorate my own "potions" jar. I found this jar at Michaels for $.99 and decided to decorate it up with this super cute Magnolia stamp.

Simon Says Stamp has a fabulous blog hop going on with a $100 shopping spree to the store. So I'm joining in on the hop challenge.
Stamp & Create's challenge is pearls and gems.
Stamping & Scrapping Challenge Central theme is not a card.

Hi Jacilynn,

What a fun idea to have that! I'm a huge Harry Potter fan as well and love all those potions! Will you take a pic when it's all set up? I can't wait for the new movie! Hope it will come soon!
My weekend will be a family weekend, we'll gather with Pim's parents today and go cycling and with my parents tomorrow and have a diner here together! Hope you'll have fun as well!

Hugs,
Wendy
