Halloween Candy Bar Wrappers

Sorry about posting late this week. I hope your paper craft was one of the many beautiful ones that were posted for challenge #137 at My Grafico Challenge Blog. Are you ready for the current challenge?

Challenge #138 Anything Goes
Join our challenge this week and show off your cards with a Fall theme
Link up your creation by Friday, October 19th.
Remember to link a new project and to only link your project, not your whole blog.

It seems that we are all excited about fall. We are entering a few weeks of beautiful fall splendor. The leaves are just starting to turn, the weather is a little warmer but not as warm as September, the pumpkins and other fall decorations are starting to appear everywhere. Due to the late frost, this spring, apples are in short supply. My favorite apples are $1.00 each!! Football and soccer games are the norm...Yeah Fall. 
The design team this week had the pleasure of working with this wonderful My Whimsy Frame set by Sanqunetti Design.  

This is such a useful set. Our Design Team used it in so many unique ways. Just check Here to see their paper craft project.

I couldn't resist making some candy bar wrappers for our newly opened Artisan Shoppe at our local YWCA. These are Hershey Candy Bars,

Here is another wrapper:

I thought that people would like to have something special to take home to their loved one while they purchased something fancier for themselves or their home.
