hallowe'en treats

Happy Hallowe'en - my favorite time of year!  Looking back on the past twelve months it's crazy to realize we've moved TWICE, had twins, and nursed them both to seven months old.  But this year there's still just one kiddo to treat, so here's my creation:

I wanted a simple treat with an attached note.  I like the 'headstone' look of Favor It Box 3 with the Moroccan Motifs impression plate, and *surprise* the Lunchbox Note fit just-so into the Library Pocket with only slight trimming!

To fit the sentiment, I curved the Halloween stamp.

I also had to use my ticket die, so I decided to go with 'creepy carnivale'...

I masked the sentiments and stamped double images from various sets, adding a little Copic marker here and there.  I'm quite happy with how it turned out (and I know of a certain girl who'll be happy too!).

Hope you enjoy your spooky day!
