No Tricks Just Treats

Today I am posting a little treat bucket that I decorated for my guardian angel at church. Our guardian angel program is one in which the adult participants are given the name of a child in Junior High and High School. We pray for them daily and occasionally provide small gifts or cards to let them know that they are being thought of and prayed for. My husband and I are blessed to be praying for a lovely young lady in Jr. High.

Although we typically do not celebrate Halloween I couldn't resist the chance to use this Eleanor and Pickles image Ve Vant Candy from Lacy Sunshine. I just adore Heather's images.




My teen loves pink and glitter, so I tried to incorporate both. The pumpkin image is part of one called Pumpkin Topiary by Scribbles Designs. I cropped the image down to just the top pumpkin. I resized and printed 3 different ones, colored and fussy cut them all. I added clear embossing glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle to them to make them more sturdy. I made a spider from a button and jute. The black legs didn't show up so I put some pink stickles on them to make them more visible. I stamped the words No Tricks Just Treats on a Tim Holtz Acrylic shape and added embossing glitter to the back of it.

Recipe:
DP: Fall 8 1/2 x 11 pack DCWV, green chevron by My Minds Eye, Glitter paper from Michaels
Digi Images: Eleanor and Pickles Ve Vant Candy by Lacy Sunshine, Pumpkin Topiary from Scribbles
                    Designs printed on white cardstock and colored with Copics
Dies: Tim Holtz mini rosettes by Sizzix and I can't remember what I used on the lid but it is probably a
         Spellbinders die
Embellies and misc: Burlap Ribbon; Tim Holtz Acrylic shape and jump ring; orange ribbon; button and black
                              jute for spider; Glossy Accents and liquid pearls on glasses; wink of stella glitter brushes
                               pink, black, and clear; Eucalyptus and Cotton Candy Stickles, Clear embossing glitter
                               from Sparkle and Sprinkle, Meadow Embossing Glitter from PK Glitz (no longer in
                               business)
Adhesives: Glossy Accents, foam tape, and Zots glue dots

I hope you enjoyed seeing my latest creation.
