Halloween Treats!

Hope everyone had a GREAT weekend! i sure had a productive one... with all the crafting i did, i'm still back for more... revisted one of my previous post (Halloween is coming) but not before i share something that just melted my heart...

Created by my 6 year old DD Krislen! she just melted my heart... i have it posted on my cork board so i can see it all the time.... i'm so proud of her... we received news that she was chosen for August's Surfer of the Month (student of the month) and her awards assembly is on Thursday... i did make a lei for her stuffed with some of her favorite things, but i'll post that later... it's hiding in the closet right now...

okay, onwards! Ha! LOL, sorry just had to do that...

so like i've said i revisted my original halloween treat box... the sample one i did earlier... after lots of shopping this weekend, i didn't find much to accent this box... picked up some orange ribbon and some halloween stickers... found lots of vellum sheets stashed so i decided to use some of it... i used the same sizzix shaker box die... glued some vellum to the window... punched holes in the side of the box and put ribbon through... that's the inside...

used the glittery stickers i found at BF to give a little accent to the corners of the window... the inside flap is still unfinished... that is where Krislen will write her name... also found some cute disney princess self inking stamps in the halloween section at kmart... she wants to use that on her little note too...
here's a closer view of the inside... sorry gang... pictures are somewhat blury... hinting to the DH, it's time for a new camera... (stuffed one of the kiddie's snacks just to see)

and here's the front... so i switched this image that was originally on the inside to the outside... glued it on to the orange squares i already had cut and texturized (didn't want to waste it) and tied it off to stay closed... what'd yah think?!? a little better huh?!? sorry for the long post (again)... i'm done, i'm done! take care until next time!
