A Sweet Spooky Treat - Mytime Style...

Hi friends!

I can't believe it's the weekend again already...not that I'm complaining, LOL.  Since it's Saturday, it's My Time to Create Challenge day!!!

I hope you all get to play along this week.  This week is a template challenge.  You haven't used Lauren's templates yet?  NOOOOOO!  You MUST be joking.  Well -- just in case, head over HERE to check them out, there are even a few you can download for FREE to try them out.


Our challenge this week was to use one of Lauren's templates to package candy.  Seeing as Halloween is coming, and I'm SO in love with the NEW digi-images from Pink Cat Studio, I couldn't help myself but to make my project Halloween themed.


Still working on this whole, 'hybrid thing', and I'm VERY pleased with how this turned out.  I saw it in my head, and it translated to paper very well I think.

I started out with Lauren's "Milk Made" Template.  SUPER cute.  I actually enlarged it a tiny bit when printing, to give a teensy bit extra room for candy.  Though I don't think it's incredibly far off from the original directions.

The tray holder was done in True Black, and the cartons in Enchanted Evening (to look like the sky).  I punched a 'moon' out of some Summer Sunrise CS.

Then I got my digi-groove on, and created the scene of Betty and the Scary Siblings out on the prowl.  I started out with some digital paper from the Little Tricksters kit by Lliella Designs.  Then I went and added the trees, also from that kit.  I flipped some, and resized some, to give a little interest.


Now I added in Betty and the Scary Siblings, and printed my design out on White CS (today's project uses SU!s whisper white).  I sat down with my craft knife, and cut cut cut cut cut...

I 'wrapped' the cut out design around the base of the tray, and there you have it!

A SUPER cute package for some Halloween goodies (mind you, with the amount of cutting, I don't think I'll be making another one! LOL)

Be sure to use keyword MTTC06, and/or link your blog post, or gallery entry to the Mr. Linky on Lauren's blog.

Oh my WORD, Tracey! LOL How long were you cutting?! These trees and that spider web are pretty intricate, and really look AWESOME on your project...but that definitely had to take some time. Well worth it - this once :O) LOL This is SUPER cute! Love that you did a hybrid project using PCS's new digi images! Also love that you used Enchanted Evening on your milk cartons to give a dark sky illusion. Very clever!

WOW! This is adorable! And all that cutting! I used to scrapbook more and my craft knife was my best friend, but now since I make more cards than scrap, I do not use it near as much. I do not miss the uncomfortable indentation it made on my finger! LOL!
Awesome job!
