Ready for Halloween??

ETA: I apologize for not providing the info on where I got the tubes...I usually purchase my tins and such from Specialty Bottle, and I googled their website, and saw this other company SKS Bottle and Packaging. I found the tubes there...they come in a bag of 48, but I've got plans...heh heh heh... Here's the link, direct to the tubes these are the 40 ml size.

Well - those of you who already know me, know that I swore off buying any new Halloween stamp sets this year. I always set out with good intentions of making cards for all of my nieces and nephews, or big plans for projects, and then wind up running out of time, and I have all of these Halloween stamps with nothing to show for it...well, not totally true I guess, I *did* make 40 treat bags for my daughter's pre-school class last year.

Anyway - I caved. Totally...not only did I buy MFT's 'Totally Witchin', but then I *had* to get PTI's Spooky Sweets 2. The images and sentiments are just too perfect.

So...with that said, I decided to put my new Halloween stamps to use...I've already posted a card done with 'Totally Witchin' here. And now I'm about to share with you my project with the PTI set...

Are you ready??

Here it is...


So, what do you think??? I loved the idea of an ice cream sundae kit, but wanted to make it more halloweenish...I had these tubes with the twist on tops, so I thought they looked like test tubes...


I made a 'rack' by making a little cardstock insert with holes in it to hold the tubes in place. I was hoping they'd fit inside the PTI clear card box, but the box was just a wee bit too small, so I cut the top of the box off, and left it open.

Then I just covered over the label on the bottle of Magic Shell, and it's all set...

I had a lot of fun making this, and put everything else that I should have been stamping aside *hangs head in shame* but I think sometimes you need to stamp for fun, before you can do your 'have to' projects, you know?

So, since this is about an ice cream sundae kit...tell me, what's YOUR favorite flavor of ice cream?? In a sundae, I'm plain Jane, I like Vanilla with Hot Fudge and caramel sauce...but just plain ice cream, I love Mint Chocolate Chip...

Thanks for stopping by!

OMgoodness, Tracey...
This is totally adorable! Can I have it? LOL - I'm just kidding! Seriously, I love it!
My favorite ice cream? Hmmm.... My all-time favorite is Mint Chocolate Chip (or MCC as we call it in our home). My other favorite is Cherry Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and I've recently taken a hankering to French Fried Ice Cream.
Great job! Off to see the other beauties I may have missed.
Hugs!
