Which Way to the Candy?! BBTB2 Challenge

Hi crafty friends, can you believe another week has gone by?!  I swear I think a few days have gone by and here a whole week has slipped by me. Why does time seem to go faster the older you are?  I mean there is the same amount of seconds, minute, hours, etc....in a day. So how does it get faster?! Please tell me that I'm not alone, that the days go by quickly for you too. lol  I guess that is just a sign of old age.  Well on to my project, as you know it is Monday and that mean of course that it is time for a new BBTB2 challenge! My sweet friend and design team sister Jeri gave us a challenge to  make a 3D Halloween treat container.  Well after thinking and thinking on what container I wanted to use, I finally settled on this cute little bag from the CTMH Artiste Cart. This little bag is so sweet and can be used for so many things. I inked my sweet little bag with Tim Holtz Wild Honey distress ink. I used a paper stack from Paper Studio called Creepers Jeepers. Then I used my trusty Gypsy and place a box from good ole George and Basic Shapes so I knew how big I could make my witches boot.  Then I cut out my layers to my boot, added some crinkle ribbon to it that I dyed and crinkled. I also used some Viva Gloss Pearl pen for the eyes on the boot. Tied a bow at the top of my bag then cut the scallop circle and stitched circle from a My Creative Time dies and stamped with a My Creative Time stamp and called it done.  I love how my witches boot came out and think it is cute on this little bag.  Now it is your turn, you can use any cart that you want to make your container, just make sure that it is a Cricut die cut. Link up with us and make sure you back link to us in your post.  All rules are located at the top of the page on BBTB2 and have fun with this challenge!! Also don't forget to check out the fabulous projects that my design team sisters have for you and please leave them some bloggy love. Thanks to Jeri for such an awesome and fun challenge!

Oh golly, Brenda, what a magnificent treat holder. Your witch's boot is amazing with that fabulous trim. I can't believe you dyed that yourself. You really did a marvelous job on this and I'm so appreciative of the work you went to for my challenge. By the way, we went somewhere with friends this week and arrived to our touristy spot and I was totally amazed when they handed out a special brochure for the event with the date of October 20th on it. I said to my friend, oh that's next week--NO--how could it be already! I felt pretty stupid. I have no clue where the last 3 weeks of the month have gone. It was all a blur in our move. LOL
