Happy Halloween Slider

I remember watching a video (awhile back) from My Pink Stamper, making an apple cider slider and I thought it was a really neat idea. Especially for close friends and family.. and maybe even stocking stuffers for Christmas (using hot cocoa)

I wanted to make a Halloween themed slider, using apple cider, but I had NONE on hand and couldn't find any at my local super market. So I ended up using instant oatmeal.

I made this slider for my close friend.. who also happens to be my neighbor. I really hope she likes it as well as you guys. Thank you for stopping bye!

Here is a link to the video:

Mike Wazowski

So last night I was going through the Mini Monsters Cricut booklet, since I JUST received it in the mail & never broke it in. The 3rd "monster" (page 30) caught my eye! The FIRST thing that came to mind was Mike Wazowski (from Disney's Monsters Inc.)! I was so excited I got straight to cutting & glueing! lol

I cut him out at 3", cut off the middle two legs, added his googley eye. His mouth was cut (2") from Layer 1 (page 39) "Goblin".

I really hope you guys love him.. as much as I do!
