🎃 LeighSBDesigns annual 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop🎃

I will be sharing today's Halloween make on Leigh's page...

I found another chocolate box in need of altering - and this time is was just the right size to store a number of ATCs...

The top is quite a tight fit so I didn't want to add anything to the base - just a scrap on the bottom and two strips of washi (Paperchase)  on the pink that you can see.
I added black tape along the edges of the top and then added scraps of DP from my stash on all sides.

Finally some Tim Holtz ephemera here and there...

The good thing about this box is that all the sides, top and bottom were just covered with snippets from my scraps!

So I will link it to
Pixie's Playground Challenge #336


What is an ATC box without any ATCs?

So here are two ATCs featuring a Stampin Up witch stamp, just stamped on each background in Versafine.

This one has brown card then a rectangle of marbled background - can you see the 'moon' in the corner?

This one has blue card then Brusho through a stencil background.


Before I finish today - I am sure some of you are wondering what my MAIN PROJECT is this year?? 
Well, here is a sneaky peek of what will go on the front...

It will contain a poem ... and here comes the question for the next SPOT PRIZE!!

From which poem does the following verse come and who is the author?

"Friends, Romans, and countrymen, lend me your ears!"

   (They were all of them fond of quotations:
So they drank to his health, and they gave him three cheers,
   While he served out additional rations).

Email your answer to
 before midnight on October 17th to be in the draw for a prize...

Happy Hopping!
