Trick or Treat ...

Happy Monday Friends!
I'm off an running this morning!

We've been in the process of having to replace our front porch (designer flaw) and they were to finally come pour the concrete today but now it's postponed till Wed/Thurs ... Uugh!  So instead, we are headed to PA to power wash my mother's house (not too many warmer nice days left this year ... today happens to be one of them so we need to take advantage of it!)

BUT before heading out, I wanted to share a cute project I made yesterday for Crafty Secrets.
I'm working on tissue box covers for an upcoming craft show and thought "Oh Wait ... it would be cute to have one for Halloween in my entry way" ... so here's what I came up with.

Now how cute is that!!  LOL!
I've printed out the design paper from the Crafty Secrets digital Halloween Paper Pack.  The base of the cover is made from a heavier white card stock but I simply printed my design paper onto regular printer paper.  
The cute image I used on the front is from the Crafty Secrets Digital Halloween Printable Sheet.  There are several different images on this sheet but this pumpkin girl just spoke to me!
I added 'googlie eyes' around the black scalloped cut opening on the lid and beautiful bows made from ribbon I purchased from the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog.

Now when I'm standing out in the cold on Oct 31 (hopefully on my new front porch) handing out candy to the 100+ trick or treaters we get, and my nose starts running from the cold, I can just step back inside and grab a tissue from my festive Halloween Tissue Box.  (sorry if that was TMI ... lol)

Challenges to share in:
 The Ribbon Girl October Challenge - Any Image Anything Goes with Ribbon
Di's Digi Designs Challenge - Too Cute to Spook - Halloween or Harvest related

Ooops hubby's ready to go!
Thanks for stopping by today ... hope you have a great start to your week!
As always ...

Fabulous project Darlene, what a great little image you have used, she looks great!
Seems like you are up to your neck in it at home with your renovations, so horrible having work done but well worth the discomfort when complete, I bet it will look great!

Oh, good heavens, you just reminded me how much I want to do one of these. This is SO DARLING all done up for Halloween! Good idea, really, if you get that many trick-or-treaters. Maybe some of them will need tissues for their little runny noses, too. We get fewer trick-or-treaters every year. Not many small kids in the neighborhood, quiet street. Most people think it's a dead end. You wouldn't really pass this way on your way to somewhere else. You get the picture. We had throngs at work, though. I'll miss that. Good luck with your porch. You're going all the way to PA? Sounds like a long trip! 'Course, I'm in Oregon.
