Too Cute To Spook Tutorial

Here is my take on Lisa's Halloween Project of Spooky Slime

With our kids I decided to make Body Glitter to put in the tin. After all our kids are too cute to spook so they will shine instead. This was a total hit with the kids as we were making it on Friday. Our little one kept calling it goopy, I should have labeled it Spooky Goopy, LOL!! This is non toxic, in fact the Aloe makes your skin very soft and who doesn't need to get their shine on now and again. It does not have to be just for kids either, Mom's can use it, it is much less expensive then Department store Holiday Glamour products. My original plan is to give this recipe a trial run the body glitter is on my list for Christmas Gifts along with some other personal care items I will be sharing with you in the future.

Product list...
Round clear top tin
PTI Spooky Sweets Stamp Set

Aloe Vera Gel (it was hard to find it clear WalMart has it by the lotion)
