TOMIC #18 - Anything but a card Halloween

Hi! How is your week going so far? Mine has been very busy! But fun and very worthwhile. 

But onto business.... there is a new challenge at TOMIC today.  This week it is Magnolia's birthday! So there is an extra special secret prize for this challenge so you truly do not want to miss entering the challenge for your chance to win.... So what do you have to do to win? 

Over here in Australia we don't 'do' Halloween but I did happen to have a couple of Halloween Magnolia stamps for the occasion ;o) I was cleaning out my pantry the other day and found an empty coffee tin that I remember storing in there because I thought it was cute and would come in handy for something one day and here it is... all decorated in Magnolia finery ready to be filled with lollies for a spooktacular Halloween.  

The gorgeous papers are Magnolia. The pretty little Tilda is from the So Spooky Collection from 2009.

For a little change I coloured Tilda in DIs. All of the amazing flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

The little spider stamp is also Magnolia but I am not sure which collection she is from... cute though isn't she?

Just another view of the top of the tin :o) Got a little snap happy haha.

And due to lack of Halloween sentiments, I stamped this sweet one from the A Little Yummy collection.

Its a bit difficult to see, but I've also stamped a little spiders web stamp around the edge of the image.

So! I hope you get a chance to make something fun and Halloweeny this week. Its a great chance to recycle something or make something off the page for a change. I've become a little addicted to altering things lately and I just love it, so come and join us at TOMIC.

I would like to enter into some challenges too...

  1. I love this and you were just right to get snap happy, its really beautiful. I love altering things. The hubby is catching on to my altering mind and tries to hide things he's bought because I get "that look" on my face apparently that says "oh I could alter that and it would look fantastic", lol. Youve done an amazing job on this coffee tin. Lee xx
