Spooky Sweets

Happy Thursday friends.  My little grandson loves candy.  Well, I guess most 6-year-olds do, don't they?  Anyway, I decided to make a little Halloween treat box for him.  

I've used Chubby Halloween on this treat box.  You can find this adorable little bear and lots of other Halloween images over in the StampFairy Shop.  I colored my image with copics and colored pencils.  I used Glossy Accents on his nose and Glamour Dust on the stars on his hat.  I started with a plain paper mache box and painted it orange.  I decorated it with some Halloween papers and a spiderweb border punch. 

I've filled this little box with lots of kisses ... and I'm sure I'll receive lots of kisses for making him this little treat ;-) 

Thank you for stopping by.
