Peachy Challenge #31 AND a Winner!

Hello everyone and welcome to my little Craft Corner!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start a new week.  I've got a fun project to share with you today....and...a winner!  I have the winner's name for my little give away from the It's A Rainbow Party Blog Hop that I participated in last week.  I want to thank everyone who stopped by for a visit, wasn't it a fun hop?  I had 53 lovely comments, so I asked my hubby to choose a number between 1 and 53 and he chose...........

Number 23 - Chriss!
Congrats to you Chriss!  Please use the "Contact Corner" tab at the top of my blog to leave me your mailing address.  I'll get your gift out to you soon!

Be sure to check Candace's blog at Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses for the winners of the awesome prizes supplied by the fabulous sponsors of our blog hop!

Ok, on to today's project!  This week's challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps is called "Box It Up".  The challenge is to decorate or create a box.  Well, I just recently got the new Cricut cartridge "Artiste" in my hot little hands, so I thought this challenge would the perfect time to try out one of the cute 3D projects on this cart.  I'm also in the mood to work on fall, this is what I came up with...

(click on photo to enlarge)

* Box - Cricut cartridge "Artiste" page 49 cut at 5 inches
* After cutting out and assembling the box, I covered the lid with cute paper from the "Spooksville" paper stack by "The Paper Studio".  The edges were created with a Martha Stewart punch.
* I lined the inside of the box and the 2 ends with more fun printed paper.

* My cute little monster is from the Silhouette Online Store
* I used the Peachy Keen stamp set "Monster Face Assortment" for that sweet little face!
* I had cut a "Trick or Treat" bag and stamped it with a "Pink By Design" stamp
* Martha Stewart glitter adds a bit of bling to my monster's hairdo!
* A few doodles with my white gel pen and some cute purple twine are the finishing touches.

* "Happy Halloween" is from the Pink By Design stamp set "A Haunting We Will Go".
And, there you go, a cute little Halloween gift for one of my little monsters!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you've enjoyed my "Box It Up" project.  Please drop by again soon - I love your visits and your sweet comments just make my day!  Take care and I'll be seeing you soon.
