Thought for the day -

Good morning all!  It has been ages since I've posted a thing but I assure you I have not been idle, lol!
I am home today with a sick child.  Jordan's allergies have gotten the best of him today but while he rests I am at work...in my craft room, yippee!!!

Today I'm sharing a little halloween project I've made.  I just love halloween!  Jordan is having a party so I am busy creating little trinkets for the party.  This will be the prize awarded for best costume.  Every little ghoul needs a trinket box- where else would they keep their glow-in-the-dark fangs, lol.


The top portion is a variation of the stair step card technique and the bottom 2 layers contain my drawers- there are 5 drawers in all. I've decorated my box using various halloween themed papers-some digital and some from Graphic 45's Alice in Wonderland line.


From this view you can see I've created a little grave yard scene. My tree was made using my cricut and the paper dolls cartridge. My headstones are wonderful little sticker embellishments from Jolee's and my rod iron fence was made with a Martha Stewart punch. This punch is fabulous!!
The drawer pulls were made using skeleton buttons and ribbon.  The front drawer pull on my large drawer is from 7Gypies and is a brass knob with a checkerboard pattern.


















My spider web ribbon is from a kit I bought at No Time To Stamp.  Sharon puts together the greatest kits! I just love her site.  My circle stamp is from The Cutting Cafe and I embellished the center with a spider button- it came with skeleton buttons purchased at Joann's.

No halloween would be complete without some scary characters. I've used the Munster image from Sunshine and Giggles, colored it with my copics and framed with my nestie frame set.

I'll be back tomorrow with the invitations I've created for our spooky halloween party!
