Halloween Box

October is one of my favorite months. Leaves start to change, cooler nights and decorate for Halloween. I also love to go visit haunted houses. We have one here its called Nightmare on 19th street. This year was really cool. They had a clown town that's in 3D with scary clowns. My daughter wasn't to found of the clowns but we had fun.
I decided to decorate an oval box I had laying around.
First I painted the box orange
I cut a strip of Halloween paper from Tim Holtz collection and mod podge the whole box to get a glossy look.
 
On the top of the lid I used Wild Orchards Crafts flowers. I used the plain white ones and sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. Used black bling from Want2Scrap and used a few 3D stickers I had in my Halloween stash. 
Really love how it turned out.Comment below and let me know what you think.
Happy Halloween
I also would like to enter my project in

Mums and Garters

This week is Homecoming game for Frenship football. In Texas we celebrate the Homecoming game with a tradition with mums and garters. The girls wear mums and boys wear garters. Boys usually ask a girl to homecoming game and boys will present the mum to the girl and girl will present the boy with a garter on homecoming day.
They wear them all day at school and than to the football game.
Teachers love them so much they have the kids tape the bells. Can you imagine thousands of kids walking around with bells ringing all day. I don't blame the teachers one bit. 
I made a few for my friends son and daughters.
Here is a garter for a special boy. He will wear it on his arm:

Here a few I made for the girls. and they will pin mum on their shirt:

#3 mum, some mums are made with 2 or 3 flowers:
