Just Another Crabby Day!

Hi, Bloggin' Buddies!

I have something different to share with you today. We are part of a group that attends our local crab feed every year. Somehow (?!) I've become the person designated to create centerpieces and individual treats for the group. This is the third year (see a previous post here). I've been doing this and I'm running out of ideas! I was seriously challenged this year, but I love what I came up with.

I used some older "Jellybean Large Circle Shaped Shakers" that I had in my stash. I had stopped using them for shaker cards years ago because they made cards too bulky to mail. I'm glad I held on to them! I used a circle die and filled the shakers with "red hot" candies. The crab elements were die cut from a set by Tailored
Expressions called "Sack It - Crab" that is designed to make treat bags. So, I modified it.

After I made the little stand up tents I realized that I needed a counter-weight for the bottom so a dark chocolate bar came to the rescue.

For those of you who do not follow my Facebook page you can see how crazy we are - we even dress in crab costumes for this annual event. Yep, we came up with those, too.

We have way too much fun. Wishing you a not so crabby week and thanks for the visit,
