Halloween Blog Hop!!

Welcome!
This is the day we are having our Halloween Blog Hop for Magnolia-licious! This assignment was perfect for me! Is there anything better than fall colors like orange, black, purple, and yellow! I love them all! And the supplies, oh my! I have paper galore in beautiful patterns and punches and, of course, Magnolia stamps! AND, yes, Suzanne, those ARE Reese's Pieces inside! They are my favorite too and I have no idea how I'm going to keep from eating the rest of the bag!

Now, if you want more details, please go to the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog. You can keep reading here if you like, because I am the start of the blog hop. Next you will visit the talented Becca Feeken so she can show you what she's been up to (besides those fabulous Christmas ornaments she's been making!)!

We were to use the Halloween theme to make a treat box from a tutorial on the Scor-Pal site.
The tutorial I chose is by Lauren Meader (the great one!) and is called the Make a Wish Window box.
Did you know there are MANY free patterns on the Scor-Pal site? Just go to projects and you will see all the categories. There are about 10 patterns, instructions for each category!


I made my treat box first following Lauren's terrific directions. The box is held together with the fabulous Scor-Tape available at the Scor-Pal website. The spider on the top flap is part of the My Mind's Eye paper called Fright Night. The box itself is made from paper by Creative Imaginations called melange. The card has double dotted paper by Bo Bunny and the damask paper is from Graphic 45, the Communique Collection, Pen in Hand. The neat web netting came from my LSS last year.




The stamps used are as follows: 292, Tilda with spider web, 448, Large spider web (stamped on window!), 552 wrought iron fence and 442, pumpkins. Please visit Magnolia-licious to see these images and email Diana if you don't see one. She'll help you out!

I am just crazy about the Martha Stewart punches with make the web border AND corner!
I used my beloved copics to color in the images.
Colors used are;
E000, E01, E93, E33, E55, E25, E47 (skin and browns)
Hair is Y21, E08 and E25
Yg01, YG13, Yg17 for the pumpkin leaves
Y18, YR16 abd YR18 for the pumpkins then a touch of E08
V0000, V04, V06 and V09 for her outfit.
When you're done hopping please consider joining in this challenge and posting to our blog! One person will win a gift Certificate to Diana's Magnolia-licious store! You have until August 31st to enter.
This was BEFORE I added the Reese's Pieces! I have NOT eaten them (YET!!)!



Thanks for taking a look at my projects for this blog hop and challenge!
(The inside of the card has a sentiment that says, "Witchie, witchie, screamie, screamie, Happy, Happy, Halloweenie!"
Love that!
have a BOO-tiful day!
Cheryl

Okay, things are being given away right and left on this blog hop so I will too!
I would like to send a mystery card (made by me) and a Magnolia stamp to one person who comments here by Monday morning, August 24!
( I really do love all of you who visit!)
