BBTB2 Challenge: Crayon Box

This week's Bitten By The Bug2 Challenge was to use the Crayon Box. I was in a "Halloween" mood, so I cut the crayon box out of a pretty Anna Griffin medallion cardstock. I liked the fall colors on the cardstock. In my imagination, the medallions mimic pretty spiderwebs. The witch image is from Crafty Secrets. I layered her over a ticket stub and a vintage postage stamp. I cut out the phrases and stars from DCWV paper, and pop dotted the bottom phrase and the stars. I stamped a fine spiderweb to the top inside flap of the box. I added three flowers with gemstone brads to the upper corner. I cut fine strips of denim patterned paper for filler, stamped two ghosts on white paper (aren't they just the cutest?!) and adhered them to the strips. Finally, I ran a line of gold Stickles around the edge of the image and as a scallop to the top of the box. Go see the other designer's take on this challenge at BBTB2 and have a great week!!!!

Miles of Smiles,
