Magical Meg with Candy Corm! MMMM

While surfing through Splitcoast Stampers the other day I found a challenge with Score-Pal for their September Challege. "Out of the Box" to create a box with your Score-Pal... I needed some fun and relaxing the other night, and had been just dying to color Stampavie's Magical Meg. The two together were a lot of fun!

I first went through my Halloween papers to find something to make my box out of. I used DCWV Glitter Halloween paper, love the sparkly candy. My box is sort of made from a few different boxes/bags that I found online. The sizes were all not right for Meg.... or not right to fill with the candy. 

 Now you can see that this has a box bottom on it with a fold over top. A piece of Velcro to hold the flap down. I cut the hole in the front before attaching everything and put a piece of acetate as a window. I then cut out a scalloped circle for around the edge from orange card stock. I am always so worried about cutting the scallops and then the circle .... what if I don't center it right? LOL But this worked out ok this time and I didn't have to cut a second.
 For my candy I wanted to use Candy Corn - but being on a diet, don't have that sitting around the house. :0) So while out running around the other day, Hubby went in to the Ice House and got a small bag for my photo shoot. The bag was a bit small and didn't quite fill my project. But I think it was ok. The funny thing was we hadn't been home 30-45 minutes when he was following me around... "you going to take the photos of your candy corn soon?"   LOL So stopped everything I was doing and took my photos. 10 seconds later he was into the bag and all the candy corn was safe from me. Wasn't it nice of him to protect me and my diet like that? HA!

Meg now...
 Isn't she just gorgeous!!! A new Stampavie release by Penny Johnson, I think she is just too pretty. This is my kind of Halloween image :0) I colored her with Letraset ProMarkers: Ivory, Oatmeal, Pear Green, Marsh Green, Warm Grey 3 & 5, Lavender, Bluebell, Poppy, Blush and Caramel. Then I covered her dress and hat with Diamond Stickles. She is all sparkly!

I then cut her out and put her on the front of the box... note she is pointing to that now gone Candy Corn.

Was really fun, to make. I enjoyed doing a 3-D project, using my Score-pal and making a fun Halloween box.

Hope you liked it... I know Hubby was happy I made this one!
HUGS and-

our box is just gorgeous, and what a gentleman your hubby are, just like mine would be with this things ha ha ha. Why is it, that men always have such a sweet tooth? I have 3 sobs and a hubby, who all never can get enoug sweets ever, but even that they+´re all just soo skinny, so they can take it, but anyway, men are just sooooo after all kinds of sweet stuff.
