Halloween Boxes for my Challenge

Hello & Happy Friday!

This time it was my turn to come up with a challenge that my dear friend, Vicki & I have been throwing at each other the last few months.

Last month I sent Vicki a card with 3 little clear boxes in and I told her my challenge was to decorate them for her favorite holiday, Halloween!

A few days later I received word from Vicki that the challenge was on!

Here are my 3 boxes:

This box uses the new Sweet Hauntings stamp set in the Holiday Mini. I added a Candy Corn that I picked up at Michael's last year. The paper is from the Happy Hauntings DSP. My twine is the thick Very Vanilla from the main SU catty. I filled this box with Candy Corn M&M's! 

This box I used the Fall Fest stamp set & matching Framelits. The sentiment is from For All Things set. The paper is from an old pack of SU paper called Halloween Night DSP. My ribbon is retired. It is the 1/8 Crushed Curry Taffeta Ribbon. My sentiment was punched with the Washi Label Punch. I filled this box with Caramel Hershey Kisses! Yum!

This box I used a sentiment from a Hero Arts set that i've had a long time. The paper is from the Happy Hauntings DSP (and I really love this ghost design). The black circle is from the new Black Glimmer paper and let me say how much I love this paper! My little ghost is a glittery foam sticker that was in my stash. My twine is Tangelo Twist from this past SaleABration. I filled this box with 2 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that are orange and they say BOO on them!

I'm pleased with all 3 clear boxes!

I cannot wait to see Vicki's boxes! Here is the link to her blog so you can go check hers out & let her some love! I know her's will be awesome! She loves Halloween!

 *** ETA: The clear boxes came from L&L Stamps in Ephrata, PA. ***

I also wanted to apologize for the lack of posts lately.
I went last Friday for my Branch Block diagnostic test. I had 6 needles in my lower back. They numbed my facet joints to see how long I stayed pain free. Once the numbing medicine wore off I was in major pain up until yesterday. I was miserable the last few days. I did not hear back from the pain management doctor on whether or not i'm having my nerves burned (RFA) or the recommendation of surgery. I will let you know when I know but now that my major pain has subsided I hope to be back to posting on a regular basis!

That's all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
