Autumn Accents Leaves in Blue & Green

Sorry that I've been MIA.  My internet was out and that
caused me to fall behind.
I LOVE the Autumn Accents Bigz die (p 232), that can cut
leaves out of paper, metal, cloth or plastic.
In this example, I sponged the 
I Love Lace background stamp (p 175)
with ink and then spritzed it with water.  After stamping the
leaves, I crumpled them and sponged the creases.  What fun!
I decided to use the bow from the Wondrous Wreath bundle,
to accessorize the leaves.  That set is amazingly flexible!

WCC09 Watercooler Halloween Wagon

    Watercooler Challenges 

Yeppers, it's time for Watercooler Challenge WCC09!
There are so many Holiday projects to share, but we are
sticking with Halloween for this challenge!

I was inspired a while back, by little Circus Animal Train
The concept certainly lends itself to holiday treat boxes
or table decorations.
The box itself is 4 1/4 by 2 1/2 inches, scored at
1 1/8 and 3 1/8 on the long side, and 1/2 inch on each side in the portrait orientation.  The sides of the box were made with the 
Chalk Talk set (p 11) and corresponding framelits (p 230).
Fall Fest with it's coordinating framelits (p 46 in
the Holiday Mini) add a festive Halloween accent to
the little wagon.   The Good Greetings  sentiment is perfect for the little banner (hostess special set).

This box is a perfect size for a Ferrero Rocher chocolate,
or a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup.  You could also add
name tags for a table decoration.

I hope that you enjoyed my Halloween project.
Please be sure to check out the other 
Watercooler Challenge artist contributions!

This project has also been entered on the 
Addicted to Stamps Blog.
