Happy Halloween!




Happy Halloween!

Isn't Halloween fun? All the innocent little faces knocking at your door. We love it and I miss the days when I would do the Halloween parties at the school with the kids and then that night Greg would take them out trick or treating while I was at home giving out candy to all the neighborhood kiddo's. 

We don't have any little ones at home anymore to dress up and I was missing it. I ask Gage (our 14 year old and deaf dog) today if he wanted to greet the kids at the door dressed up and he glared at me. He may not be able to hear me anymore, but I'm pretty sure he could read my mind. He hid the rest of the day.

Gage might not be willing to participate, so I thought it would be fun to look at some real troopers who did. Just for fun, here they are.













Have a fun day!

It's a Party! #182


Welcome to the party!

Okay, depending on when you're reading this, the Royals (hopefully!) will be the World Series Champs. As I'm writing it now, we're getting ready to leave to go to Brandon & Christina's to watch the 7th and final game. All this time and it comes down to one game, one final night.

Let's go Royals!
We believe!


There have been a couple of other things besides baseball going on around here.




And, of course, the Fabulous Features from last week's party this morning.





Link up anything you want to share with us this week. It can be your fabulous craft, yummy recipe, giveaway, shop, etc.

I'll feature the Top 5 most viewed links next Wednesday. I started a board on Pinterest where I pin all of the fabulous features. You can follow along Here.

I would love for you to follow A Creative Princess while you're here!

If you would like to grab an It's a Party button (on the sidebar) and post it on your blog somewhere, that would be great! Let's get the word out and grow this party.
The more the merrier!

We all love comments, so please visit other links and have fun!


Hits of the Party!


Happy Wednesday and to celebrate Hump Day, how about showing off a few features from last week's It's a Party? Let's do it!


Jack-O-Ghetti


This is such a cute idea and I think I might do it for Halloween night.


Healthy Candy Corn Bars


So, you all know how much I love candy corn. These Candy Corn Bars are perfect for me!
Might just have those Halloween night, too.


Wine Cork Horse Ornament


This is so stinkin' cute! I've got to make this little guy.


Leaf Art for Kids


My grandkids are always looking for something to "craft" when they are here. These leaves are a great idea, especially for placemats!


Simple Souvenir Display


I've got so many souvenirs tucked away in boxes. Using a shadow box is a great idea!


Thank you to everyone who linked up. You all are awesome!

This week's party will start later this afternoon.

Crack Dip


We were at a Chiefs party a couple of weeks ago and a friend of mine made the best dip I've ever had. When she told me how simple it was to make, I knew I had to try it.

(Remember, I'm not a food blogger and don't take food photo's!)
(Which means the next photo you see is going to be bad!!)




See, it doesn't look so great, but you've got to believe me, it's awesome and Teresa was right, it's sooo simple to make. Only 4 ingredients.

16 oz sour cream
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1 bag (3 oz) of bacon bits
1 cup of cheddar cheese

Mix it all together and we dipped tortilla chips in it, but I bet it would be good with veggies or Frito's, too. 

I was on Pinterest the other day and found a recipe for warm Crack Dip. I pinned it and want to try it next. It's Here if you want to try it, too. It's just a little different.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

The Boys of Fall


It's an exciting time around here these days. Not only is it football season and our Chiefs are playing, but the Royals are in the World Series!

Last week on Good Morning America, they were talking about how San Francisco stopped playing the song by Lorde called Royals during the World Series. Which, by the way, encouraged all the radio stations around here to play it constantly.




It, also, inspired me to applique a Royals shirt.

I just printed out the letters and traced them on the fabric to applique on.




For the name on the back, I used Princess. Get it? Be Royal - Princess.

#20 was Josh's number when he played baseball in college.

Blue shoelaces...check

Royals watch party at Brandon & Christina's...priceless!


That was Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the Chiefs played at noon and the 5th game of the World Series was at 7:00.




I've got to give credit where credit is due. This was Greg's idea. He even went out and found the Royals shirt, then brought it home and told me to put something Chiefs on the back so he wouldn't have to change during the day.


Want to know where I got the KC arrowhead?



From a car flag.



I ironed on Wonder Under and then cut it out and appliqued it on the back.




He's got a pair of red Chiefs shoes, too. I told him he should wear one red and one blue shoe.
He didn't listen to me.

Have an awesome Monday!
