Treats without any tricks

Hopefully, by the time you read this, I will be in one of my favourite seaside destinations – Cromer, in Norfolk. It is somewhere I know very well having spent some of my youth living not so far away. Mr Beez and I are having a couple of days R & R which are likely to consist of beach walks and eating crab. If you’re not familiar with Cromer, it is famous for it’s crabs. You can spend many a happy hour dangling a fishing line (no rod required), strung with bacon for bait, over the pier and end up catching a bucket full or nothing at all. I will try and share some pictures with you on my return. .

The theme of this week’s challenge at City Crafter is Trick or Treat, or to use orange as a main colour if Halloween is not your thing. Now if I’d thought this through properly I could have course done something involving a crab. But I didn’t and I love Halloween so here is what I came up with:


These are chocolate biscuits, that well known make that begin with K (!), that I have made some special Halloween wrappers for. All the papers and images are from The Gecko Galz.




The images have all been edged with Vintage Photo distress ink and layered onto black card.


These were so easy to make and I think would be great to have at the ready for the 31st of October.

Be sure to buzz over to City Crafter Challenge Blog as the Design Team have some fantastic samples to share with you and there is the cutest little bag from this week’s guest designer.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. I really, really hope that you are finding Norfolk better than the weather forecast. It has turned very cold here today.

    I love your wraps, they are so prefect. Please could you come to my house and organise me, I really would love to make things like this.

    • Oh, would so love to craft with you! The weather was wicked yesterday – nearly got blown away and v.v.cold. The rain didn’t come until after dark though.xx

    • I think it might be possible to slip the chocolate out without spoiling the wrapper – need to make a few and experiment!!!! The weather was wild, but we still had a good time xxx

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
