Trick or Treat!

Good morning! Nothing like showcasing a variety of holidays on this ole' blog huh? How about we switch to Halloween for a couple of days? ; ) JustRite has come out with a couple of fabulous Halloween sets for CHA, and the first one is this darling little set called, Trick or Treat.
I found this gravestone box on my Happy Haunting's Cartridge and decided to make a Halloween treat box using my Cricut Machine. It was cut at 6". To make the gravestone look mottled like real stone, I used my Colorless blender fluid, Copic C3, W3, and an old wash cloth. I moistened the washcloth with the Colorless blender fluid and swiped the two colored markers across. Then I just dabbed the grey cardstock! I colored the ghost with Copics and added glitter to his body. I hand cut the oval/ghost out. The background sentiment was cut using an oval Spellbinder's die.
The grass was attached with a dimensional foam circle to create depth. I tied some twine around my box and a clear epoxy circle.
Glittery ghosts can still be scary? Right?
Just wait until you see the projects the DT has brewed up.........you are going to wish Halloween was tomorrow!

My husband and I are taking our 4th dance lesson tonight! We have learned the basics of the Waltz and the Tango. It has been more fun than I had thought it would be......honestly, I was afraid I'd have two left feet and end up in divorce court! LOL! So wish us luck while we learn........the RHUMBA! ; )

Have a great weekend!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting!!!!
