Treat bags for the class

Well I am ready for my class tomorrow.
Like I said earlier my friend asked me to teach a class on one of the projects that I had done. So we decided on these treat bags. She is a Stampin' Up demonstrator so I used her products. Which I love anyway.
I decided to do a Holiday theme. Here is what I came up with. I am only doing the treat bag.
There are about 10 women coming tomorrow. So I made up these kits. I am not sure of the ladies crafting abilities so I made the kits pretty complete. They just have to stamp, punch and attach. No cutting or scoring, Easy peasy.
Today, besides working on these, I went out for lunch with Sharon. We went to Applebee's. I ordered something I have never ordered before, now I know why I order the same ol' things. The bun for the sandwich was a bit on the hard side and we paid an extra 1.99 for onion rings instead of fries. We only got 5 or 6 onion rings. I even asked the waitress, did you split our order, she laughed and said no that's a full order.

I also went to the fabric store to pick up my fabric for my fall quilted wall hanging. They also had the batting I use on for 50% off. It is $28.00 a meter so half price is nice.
Well they told me that the batting in the bags were the only ones on sale. I was sure the flyer said on the bolts were on sale as well. So I got one of their flyers to show them. Then they checked with the manager and she said it was only on selected batting.
OK, what ever. But then I thought no the package is the same brand as the bolt. So I went to the manager and explained it. And she said, your right, (don't you just love when someone says that to you :) I didn't realize it was the same brand.
So to make a short story long (which I am good at, teehee) I bought my batting at 50% off, from the bolt,yeah.

Thank you to all of you who were concerned about Ashley. She was good as new later this afternoon. She is happy to report that she is going to work tomorrow. She feels so bad for missing work.

Thankful Thursday.
