NEW OCTOBER CHALLENGE!!

Wow!! It's already October!! It seems like school just started and here we are in one of my favorite months! Despite the weatherman's predictions, we had a pretty nice fall weekend! Dave and I took a long hike through the woods on Saturday with friends and I cooked a delicious family meal on Sunday!  And now, Monday is already behind us for the week! Gotta love that!
 Over at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS, Angela Wood has challenged us to make Fall/Halloween projects, like treat holders!! No problem!! You have got to visit the blog to see the FAB-U-LOUS projects my teamies have created! You are sure to be inspired to join in! You have all month to do so, but why wait! Let's fill up that gallery!  There are so many cute templates out there on the internet!  I went to Splitcoast Stampers-Tutorials, put box in SEARCH and got a great number of choices for FREE!  Here's the link to the tutorial I used: WINDOW TREAT BOX
 For my window treat box I used #121 EDWIN MUMMY and the MAGNOLIA PUMPKIN SET.  Edwin is in stock in mini size, but if you're interested in ordering the full size that I used you will get great customer service from Diana!  I could not create projects like this without my SCOR-PAL AND SCOR-TAPE!  They are must haves, in my book! Have you seen the SCOR-PAL project book?  It's jam packed with great ideas!!
 Here are a few more photos of my treat box.  This one is full of chocolatey goodness!
 There is no decorative paper involved. It's all card stock for strength.  I stamped the cardstock with a damask design stamp from Stampin' Up.  Not sure if you can see it, but I used Icicle stickles all over the place!  I used the other pumpkin on the side.
 The top of one box!  Sparkly Spider!
All coloring is done with copics.  Mummy Edwin is colored in W00. W1, W3. W5.  His shoes are E31, 35 and 25.  Pumpkins are Y17, YR15, 16 and 18.
Time to get ready for school!  Wishing you a wonderful day AND time to create something!!
Thanks for coming by!!
Cheryl
