Trick or Treat???

Hi all! Happy Friday! This day is MUCH anticipated in my house because this week has been a heck-of-a work week! So... cheers to the end of the week! :-)

I wanted to show you a fun project that my DD and I did Thursday afternoon to get ready for her BIG Halloween Party at school. This is a fun one!!

What do you get when you mix some Candy Corn, Black M&Ms and.....

Some oh-so-delicious Chocolate eyeballs????
Well, you get Eye of Newt, Witches Teeth & Black Cat Toes!!! See? Don't laugh at my Halloween inspired nails... that was my nail lady's idea! ;-) They are kinda fun though!!!
We decided to stamp and color one of the little pumpkins from the Witching You A Happy Halloween set from Flourishes to deck out the front of our little tag... see? We colored with Copic Markers (YR04, YR09, YG00, YG03) and then added a little glitter!
I should REALLY say my daughter did the coloring.. she had her first Copic experience! ;-) I think she did a FABULOUS job!!!
I colored a few, but believe it or not, most of this was her handiwork!
And this.... is where the fun begins! When we stack our black cat toes, eye of newt and witches teeth!!! I actually bought these tubes from a friend who bought extras. So, I am not sure where she picked these little numbers up! I will say, if you google plastic test tubes, you'll find a BUNCH of options!


From here, add the little pumpkin tag with some halloween inspired ribbon and... voila!!

I thought these turned out really, really cute and I know that her classmates will love them! I can just hear some of her little girl friends say... "EWWWwwwww!" and then giggling! Fun stuff!
