Happy Halloween!

Got a quick little second post today.  I made a treat bag for my DD to take with her on her way to work.  She had school and then has to close up where she works, so she won't get to join us for our traditional buffet and scary movie.

This was very simple and quick.  I used papers from the Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows 12x12 stack and edged them with the MS spider border punch, the black being glitter paper.  The web is Memory Box Creepy Web die, and the tags are from Sissix Scallop Tag #2, with the smaller tag painted and dry brushed with Ivory and Coal Creative Inspirations paints respectively.  Some orange dewdrops and gold metallic ribbon and voila, a last-minute treat bag for my sweety sweet DD.

Funny thing about the greeting.  I stamped it onto the possibly still-damp tag and accidentally touched it with my paintbrush and smeared one of the words,  I liked the effect so much I brushed the other words the same way so as to give them a slightly "hair raised" look.  A little glitter heart and another orange dewdrop finished things off. 

Note: the tags are loose and supposed to look a little wonky. 

Thanks so much for visiting me, and now it's time to get back to cooking for tonight.  Have a lovely evening, everyone, and Happy Halloween!

And of course, Happy Crafting too!!
