Hi my crafty friends! I hope who ever is in the path of Sandy will be safe!  We are hunkered down and have the generator ready to go as we are supposed to get 60 - 80 MPH wind and may be without electric for a while.  So I thought I'd better get my post ready!!  Brenda here and this week at Sweet Sassy Diva my design team sister Lori gave us the challenge of party favors or party decorations.  I went with a favor.  Nothing here to do a tutorial on as it is all basic stuff cut, score and decorate. I cut my coffin off the CTMH Artiste cart on fit to page.  I must say it is a pretty big size and holds a ton of candy! lol  I also cute my skelton as well as the spider webs.  I cut two skeltons because I wanted one on the botton of my coffin for when my guest eat the candy they will have a little surprise.  Then I cut it again and cut off the arms and legs to glue to my lid to look like Fred Bones is trying to get out of the coffin. lol  The smaller webs I cut at 1.20" and I like that they had some problems cutting because it looks like the webs have been disturbed, but the big one is good to go because momma spider is make suring no one distrubes that one! My spider came from I cut the eek out of the Artiste cart too and use glossy accents on it as well as my spider. I haven't glue my "eek" down or my spider down yet as the glossy accents is still wet in spots. I inked up my skelton legs and arms with vintage photo and barn red, to mimick dirt and dried blood on the bones.  I filled iwth an assortment of candy and called it done!  I hope you will get crafty for Halloween too.  Looks like our Halloween night won't be happening depending on the hurricane.  But that's ok, we want everyone safe and sound!  Happy crafting!!!
