Midweek Magnolias #31 - Trick or Treat it's Halloween!!!

A very good morning to you all,  It's OCTOBER!!!!  OMG! where did September go to,  in fact where has this year gone!!! lol.

Anyhoo!! it won't be long before we have lots of little monsters!! (I jest) knocking on our doors and asking us for a Treat and if we don't comply then it's Trick time.   

are having a HALLOWEEN theme this week.  Although we don't celebrate it so much here I love making a few creations as part of my Dt work.  

I've not got many Magnolia Halloween stamps so I thought I would convert this sweet Tilda with Candy Cones (Christmas stamp) and fill her little cone with candy treats.  Tilda has been coloured using Copics and Derwent soft pencils.

The frame surrounding her I made myself using some chipboard and covering her with a piece of Prima card that was inside a package holding some prima flowers, the colours were ideal.  The little tag on the side with Fangtastic on it is another piece of card from prima with another range of flowers.  Waste not want not my dear old Mum used to say.

The other papers, sayings and stamps are from a candy I won in January from Close to My Heart.  Flowers are from Prima, buttons from my stash.  Doohickey So Lovely tag and the little pumpkin and candy came from poundland.

I do hope you will join in our fun challenge, please take a peek at the amazing creations our amazing Dt have made for your inspiration this week.

One last little detail:   Please use a Magnolia product somewhere on your creation and only combine your challenge with 4 other challenges to be included in the wonderful package that will be sent to our winner from Magnolia Sweden.
