lunchtime fun

my sweet girl often requests that i bring her lunch when i pick her up from school. last week, she requested an all fruit lunch which made me happy! a favorite blog that i visit often, belongs to my online friend Wendy. her blog is the amazing Wendolonia she makes wonderful bento lunches for her family that she almost always photographs & uploads- you must check her space out! i have been the lucky winner of bento boxes and accessories that she's given away so i've been packing them often- it is so fun! this one is pretty boring but i loved all the bright color!

since it's so close to Halloween, i made a treat holder & a quick ATC as a surprise for her afterschool too. there was a cute diaper pouch folding tutorial that i saw on splitcoast (they have all kinds of amazing tuts-check 'em!) i made mine with an 8x8 square.

suppies: basic grey (eerie), heidi swapp flower and giant brad, staz on ink, skull stamp from MFT"s Ghoulish Label Set
so easy peasy to make & she LOVED it (i put in a fruit roll up, a chewy mini granola bar & a push up pop)
here's the ATC:

supplies: pumpkin treat bucket stamp from MFT's Trick or Treat with Who's That Girl also the drippy goo from the label set (credit above) and the bats are from MFT's Too Cute to Spook set (sold out right now), patterned paper (? sorry totally can't remember LOL!), colored pencils, Dove blender pen, chipboard letters & rick rack (from The 31st-Noel Mignon kit!)
Ok- off to make chili! {{GIANT HUGS}}

Your bento looks GREAT! I want that for my own lunch!
