Halloween Challenge

Hello fellow bloggers and crafters
Today I have spooktacular project.  I hope you aren't getting sick of my altered containers, because I love making them.  KAndrew designs has a challenge again this month.  Last month, if you remember, I submitted my "Whooo Loves You" card.  I was given the "A Mice Halloween" file from her for entering.  Sadly only two of us entered her challenge last month, so if you haven't had a chance do so check out her blog.  This month's challenge is anything to do with Halloween.  AND she has some amazing blog candy to give away.  Blog Candy

Onto my project again. I purchased a couple of Kristals files and was given a one free also with my purchase. I do not have any carts with Halloween so I thought this was the appropriate way to go.  So without further ado, here is my container.

I was at Hobby Lobby the other day getting ready for my classes that will begin the 16th of September and while I was there I came across this cute candy corn paper.  I just love it.  I think it gives the container some pop.  The first side is the "A Mice Halloween" file.  I popdotted the stars on the sentiment and on the mouse's tail.  SO cute

The next side is the "Hello Dearie" file which I got free for my purchase of $10 or more from Kristal's shop.  I love dimension so I cut some raffia and made the broom with it to give it some 3D.  I also added some brown card stock to the broom's handle just for fun.  The orange paper that spells out Hello Dearie is real glossy.  It really gives it some bling. 

The next side is "Spooky Cat"  I think this one was a $1 if you made a purchase.  Sorry, I can't remember.  I just know I love her files.  They are so easy to put together.  She has them in any format you need.  I didn't alter anything on this side except I used my "homemade" markers since I don't have any cri-kits.  Oh, I want them so badly, but for now my "homemade" ones work.  I did popdot the pumpkin and inked the edges just to give it a bit more pop.

The last side is the "Witches Brew".  Love this one.  Maybe it's because of the frog...LOL  Anyway, I popdotted the bubbles (same glossy paper as the orange stuff) and added a black brad for dimension to the frog's eyes.  I also used the dots cuddlebug folder to emboss the culdren (sp).  Sorry the picture doesn't show it so well.  I've got to figure out a way to show off my work better.  Honestly, it looks way better in real life. 

Anyway, hope you like my container and leave me a comment so I know I actually have people reading this stuff.  LOL  I was a bit surprised that I have 10 followers.  Woot woot.  I might be doing a blog candy giveaway myself pretty soon if I get enough followers.  If you are currently a follower spread the word about my blog. 

As always, have a great day and god bless.
