All Hallow's Eve!

311009I have been pumpkin carving and this is the end result ... Happy Halloween everyone!
At midnight tonight I will be wrestling with Monsieur Random-org to find out the winner of the candy ... you still have time to join in ... just click here.ZZproject31109
As part of my Zutter submission I made a little candy box from beer mats ... I see it is on the Bind it all blog too ... which is very exciting :0) For me anyway ... possibly not so exciting for you :0)
I stamped with those stamps again ... you know the ones that are grey rubber when you buy them at a show with the price scribbled on the back ... the ones thaZZproject3b1109t I can never remember who makes them and Hels has told me at least twice and I still can't remember ... old age don't you know!
The letters, bats, pumpkin are all grunge board die cuts from Tim ... the man that can make candy with a glue stick and some stickles while riding a unicycle up a very steep hill ... Holtz.ZZproject3d1109
There was a slight problem with this piece though ... I had to open a rather large bag of chocolate to fill the box and then I ate the said rather large bag ... now I need to tell John that I have eaten it ... because I need him to go get more before all the littlies start knocking on the door later :0) Oops ... they were n't half good though ... especially the Skittles ... it has been yonks since I had them!
All that is left is for me to say a big Thank you so much to everyone that popped over to the Kaboodles blog yesterday ... to say Hi ... it really was very much appreciated.
Have a spookilicious day whatever you are doing!
