After a day of prep at our local Mi Wuk Sugar Pine Fire Station, tomorrow will finally be our annual Family Fire Fest.  This is a day dedicated to fire safety and family education and includes children’s activities as well as demonstrations put on by our fire fighters and displays by local emergency and support agencies.  I almost forgot that there will be free fire truck rides for the kids.  Being that it is a free event the committee solicits donation baskets for a bit of a fund raiser.  This is my basket:

I’ve included a Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog as well as the 2015 Holiday Catalog, 6 cards, a trick or treat ‘fry box’ and an invitation for a free class for the winner and 4 friends.

My sweetie got me some not-quite-clear cello wrap so I could package it up.

At least the gold translucent cello wrap is perfect for autumn.

It seems I used the recently retired Labels Collections Dies for layering my information cards.

These images are from a Demonstrator Only stamp set that I received at Stampin’ Up!’s convention several years ago.

And now I’m looking forward to making some new stamping friends.

Tomorrow is the Family Fun Fest so I’ll be out at the fire station all day.  Hopefully Sunday I can get a jump back on the creativity and blogging bandwagon.  I’m feeling a bit out of it right now since I’ve been immersed in preps for the FFF.  I have several new stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog that I’m really wanting to experiment and create with.  What’s your favorite item from the 2015 Holiday Catalog?  Stamp set?  Embellishment?  Tool?  One or many, let us know!
