A spooky MichJay Challenge this month!

Time for the Monthly MichJay Challenge! Every month on the 20th my Buddy JayJay and I take turns challenging each other to make a 3-D item - out of the box by making some sort of box you may say! This month was JayJay's turn - and she went all Spooky and Halloween on me :0) She asked me to make a coffin!

She sent me a template she found a while back on the Internet for free.. I don't know where from sorry - Maybe JayJay will let us know.. LOL I cut it out and put it all together.. wow.. it really looks like a coffin! I used a dark brown ink and roughed it up a bit. The top needed just a bit more.. so I found a piece of Basic Grey paper that had spider web pattern, and tore the edges to fit on top of the "coffin". For the image I knew I just had to use one of Alota Rubber Stamps new Halloween Trick or Treats they are a really cute set of kids.. and the Dracula that was just perfect!

I found three very old Prima flowers that looked pretty Halloween-ish to me - I centered them with sugared brads and then added some Martha Stewart black card stock branch punches, and then a Happy Halloween ribbon.

Are you brave enough to look inside of the coffin???

mmm Candy Corn... well Hubby says mmm - I can take them or leave them not one of my favorite candies.

Don't forget to visit my Buddy JayJay - I can't wait to see what her "Coffin" looks like! And if you would like to join in on our personal challenge please shout out and let me know I would love to see your stuff too!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!!
