Mr. Mustache . . .

Happy Friday Everyone!

Are you ready for the weekend???  Trick or Treat is tomorrow night in our neighborhood and I'm expecting to hand candy out to between 150 - 200 kids.  LOL ... Welcome to the Suburbs!!
 Every year I'm amazed at some of the FABULOUS costume's I will see come to my door ... but of course, there are those NOT SO FABULOUS, put a little dirt on your face and go as a Hobo, Trick or Treaters that come calling.  Hopefully the rain will come early and be gone before the little ones start out!

Today I have my 1st creation to share with you as a member of the Crafty Secrets / Heartwarming Vintage Design Team.  There is SO MUCH going on right now at the website you really must pop over and check it out!!! 

One of the newest digi sets is called Barber Shop and that is the set I decided to play/create with today.  Here's what I've come up with . . .

 This was an empty black box (5 1/2" x 8 1/4" x 1 1/2") that I found at Michael's for $1.  I thought it would be perfect to turn into a 'Gentleman's Suitcase' to house all his shaving toiletries by adding the handles.  All the fabulous papers, images &  ephemera are from this new Barber Shop Kit.  What fun!!

I am SO PROUD of the outcome of this altered box ... I can hardly believe I did it!  LOL!  There was a fair amount of fussy cutting and popping up on the front of the box ... but I think it looks SO COOL!  LOVE these new images and can't wait to play more with them!  There are just SO MANY possibilities with this set, my head is swimming!!

You can pop on over to the blog HERE for more information on this fabulous new masculine set!  The design team just received this set (I was in a hurry to play, LOL) and will have more inspirational creations to share with you very soon!
