Ok let's be honest I've been waiting for this since weeks!!!
I started working on fall's projects since mid August... you know, it was very warm and a way too sunny and the only thing that relieved me from the heat was thinking about Autumn!
I recently discovered an interesting on-line shop called http://www.mymumscraftshop.co.uk/. They sell amazing things and the customer care is incredibly nice and available, there's only a minor point regarding shipping/delivery: they have decent fees for overseas shipping but it takes slightly longer than usual...therefore if you are on hurry or you're a pretty impatient person you better think twice before placing your (overseas) order, otherwise it's 100% thumbs up!
I bought several interesting fall-themed items among which a set including Halloween stamps (from My Favourite Things) and dies (from Die-namics), 2 sets of Distress crayons (I'll dedicate a post to these special, yet debated, crayons!!!) and few other things...
You all know my new-found love for explosion boxes and that's what I came up with: a Halloween explosion box with an elegant look but with the traditional trick (actually a treat ;-)) inside!
