Delightful Challenges

Hello everyone!  It's Thursday which means we're one day closer to a 3 day weekend!  Doin' the happy dance!!  And I'm happy dancin' for another reason, it's time for a new challenge at Digital Delights with the newest release.  We're getting ready for Halloween - so I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge, but stay with me for just another minute for me to show you what I did with it.

So I went with a project.  Let me tell you, this is not what I started to make.  Remember I told you the other day that I had such a hard time getting my creative juices flowing.  I started on this project Sunday morning around 8am and I finally finished it Sunday night.  I had to Skype my sister Theresa and have her hang out with me and encourage me the whole way thru it.  It worked, I think.

I started the idea with another box and then ended up with this cute little milk carton which is an SVG from my old pal Lindsay from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.

Theresa said that this little ghostie is so cute that it deserved to be on a special medallion.  So I made it.  These are a bit tricky to get to lay flat, I turned it inside out a couple of times and had it jump 6 inches in the air.  It cracked my son up!

Then I finished it off with a cute greeting from Halloween Sentiments #1.  The inside will be filled with yummy malted milk balls.  Another one of Theresa's suggestions.
