And now for my project:
I chose to use the Ghost Tower Box for my project.  It is available here:
I made it out of a transparency so that way I could have the ghosts look like they are flying. 
I have also included the link to find the Scallop Popper Box
 as I have shown them in the picture also

The tree is just kraft coloured cardstock
and the ghosts were done with textured white cardstock.

I did a little bit of inking on the ghosts and on the tree.

Birthday Present

Happy Birthday comes once a year for us all. 
 Seeings as it is my baby sister's 40th birthday I have decided to make something for her.
I do have something else I am making for her also but it is still in pieces. When it is together I will post the finished product.

I decided to make this cupcake box as part of her present.  I am going to fill it with some chocolate for her.  Hmm What's her favourite chocolate.  Guess I will need to find this

Here is a view of the finished one

View with the top off.  It is about 4" tall
Here is another view with the lid sitting on it cock eyed.
Now just to get it to her as we live 16 hrs
Here are the numbers I have put together for her. 
They were fun to
The pattens are from

Here is the picture of both items together. 
 I still have to put some chocolates in the cupcake and
 then figure out what I will do to get them to her

I have chosen the Football bag to do as my next DT project. It can be found at this link:

 I have done it in the colours of the Highschool my kids go to. They are the Hammarskjold Vikings. Always nice to cheer on your home team.
I imported the file with no changes made to it and it makes a bag that is 3.75" x 5.25". It is the perfect size for a couple of bite size snack treats. I used a transparancy to cover the hole inside the football. I used cardstock form Michaels, and CTMH Desert Sand Ink for the smudges, and Liquid glass to make the button on the helmet shiny. Hope you enjoy

Here is my version of a card made by a fellow scrapbooker.  She posted me the video to watch and this is what mine turned out like.  I also made one in darker colours which could be used for a masculine card.  The paper I used is from the Lucy pack from CTMH.

Here are the tags I made for in the pockets.  The rub ons are the out of the Lucy WOTG package

I really liked this card also. I had seen this one before and found it again on Splitcoast Stampers site.   It is a double pocket on the front and none on the inside. It is also made from the Lucy pack of paper.  The little rhinestones are also from the WOTG. 

Here are the tags for this card.

Here is my dt project for this week.  I chose to do the Scallop Popper box and decorate it up for Halloween.  The file for this popper box is only $3.00 and can be found here: 
This box was very easy to put together.  I also used the Beware file from for the ghost and the bats that are peeking out of the scalloped openings on the boxes and the ghost on the candy sticks also.

A Little Halloween Creativity

I made these candy sticks today while it was nice & quiet in the house. 
 I used my Happy Hauntings, Sugar & Spice, and AP cartridge. 
 I got some smarties at the Bulk Food Store in Halloween colours even.
