All Hallow's Eve

Well for all you ghouls and ghostie lovers not long to wait now.
something to look forward to, darkness will soon be upon us and the creatures of the night will rise!!
Dont forget to dress up real scary as   the more gruesome you look during  the Halloween holiday, the more you will get to stuff  your faces with candy!!

 Most of us have been guilty at one time or another of dressing our little cherubs up as monsters and shoving them up the neighbours garden path or worst still, dressing up oursleves to go to a friends party, getting the bus there, that was always fun!! So now its my turn to get the doorbell rung all evening and to smile sweetly as I fill someone else's child with sugar and E numbers !!!

 Here's a candy box I made from a plain card gift box , I covered it in black card to make it nice and rigid and decorated with some Halloween papers from a Serif Halloween 2011 digikit, the leaves and foliage were cut using a festive greenery sizzix die and my pumpkin was again Serif. The moon was just a circle cut from plain white card stock and edged with a Tim holts distressing ink pad dusty concord ,  and the letters were left over from a forever friends set. I had to ink them up in brown pigment ink and emboss with thick embossing powder a few times to get them to have that enamelled look . Finally add a bat, some gold paper candies and a ribbon and you have a ghoulisous little gift box for the local horrible monsters/kids/Adults to dip into and 'treat' themselves from..

dont forget to line your box with some orangery red 'blood stained' tissue paper and silver 'spiders webbing'...

Of course if the sign I've left on the door saying ' Sick baby sleeping , please do not knock' works for yet another year I may not get any visitors on the 30th October and I may have to eat all the goodies myself!! meh ha ha ha.....Trick or treat ??
