Candy Time and a Treat Box!

***CANDY IS NOW CLOSED***

Howdy!  This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! (FYI:  CANDY might be hiding in my post today...)

After church today, hubby and I are going to the movies with friends to see Money Ball.  Have you seen it?  What did you think?  The last movie we saw with our friends was The King's Speech which hubby chose.  We all thought it was great!  Hubby chose this time too, so we have high expectations lol!  What movies have you seen lately that you really liked?

When I go to the movies I have to eat popcorn... I like to drink a Coke Icee and once in a while I'll also have candy!  Do you find yourself ordering routine 'comfort foods' when you go to the movies?

Warning:  Today's project includes the CANDY!!!  If you are like me with a sweet tooth, you may want to arm yourself at this point...  On the other hand, if it's not CHOCOLATE, I can usually pass it up lol.

I decided that I needed to color up this sweet image by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD, Pumpkin Patch Peeker.  Can you hear her saying, 'Peek-a-Boo!'?

As usual, I've colored her with copics:  YR16 YR14 YR12; G28 G24 G21 G40; E35 E34 YR21 YR20; E11 E00 R20; E55 E53 E51 E50.  The pumpkin was just screamin' for some Glamour Dust Paint - Ice Crystal, of course!  I think I used 3 coats...

I wanted to do something different with this image, so while I was browsing patterns, I found this cute li'l pumpkin box which fit perfectly!

The inside of the box will hold a very generous handful (and I have big hands!) of Tootsie Roll candies.

The image was die cut and embossed with my oval and scalloped oval nesties.  The GORGEOUS swirls (which I will use A LOT!) were made with Elegant Scrollwork die by Memory Box.  A few rhinestones carefully placed enhances the elegant swirls and finishes off my yummy project!

Your treat box is so cute! Great colouring on the sweet little pumpkin girl.

I am the same way with candy. If I want Hallowe'en candy to last until the 31st, I buy the un-chocolate kind that I don't care for. Of course then I have to hide it from DH! :D


Thanks for sharing! :)

I hope you enjoyed your movie! I don't go anymore because it's so expensive and other people's bad behaviors just bug me, lol!! So we rent and watch at home. And I make wonderful popcorn!!!

Although I have the movie house nachos with that yummy "fake" cheese, lol!

Thanks for the reminder about this yummy candy!! i thought I had already entered but must have forgotten!! I have been a follower for a long time cos I just love everything you create!!! Thanks for a chance to win!! HUgsxx

Christine aka blankiefinder said...

Thanks for the reminder to enter, Lori! Your pumpkin treat holder is adorable, by the way! Perfectly matched to your Tootsie Rolls. They only seem to come in boring brown here. Though the brown brings up happy memories of a few years back when I sewed my daughter a brown felt tootsie roll costume for halloween, and used my cricut to cut the letters going down her body :) She loved it! :)

Thanks for the chance to win!
