Outlines Challenge #22-Birthday Bash





Now I am sure you are asking yourself "What the heck?...)

Welllllll, 2 weeks ago we had a Halloween challenge, last week was Fall/Halloween and I just had to show off the new images, so that left me squeezing in this fun Halloween Spooky Shoes image. I have a co-worker who's birthday is Halloween Day! Imagine having a built in celebration!  This is going to her on October 31st! ( I promise the candy will be fresh too LOL)  I could not miss showing off these Spooky Shoes! I have also used parts of two Outlines Sentiments(thanks for the Boo Sandy!), and some gorgeous swarovski crystals on the Spooky Shoes buckles.



 I had an incredibly hard time taking a decent picture of these great spooky witches shoes so....


I decided to take a "scary shoes" picture! Wooooooooooo! (scary noise here too)


These are the other goodie dishes I made.  I bought a box of marshmallow pumpkins, 1 box of marshmallow ghosts, 2 bags of candy corn(hmmm some of these were missing come time to work these up) 1 bag of black licorice and some black jelly beans. The candy goes a long way!

I took these dollar store glass candle holders and spray painted them black...
The glass containers below are from the dollar store as well -except the lidded candy dish which I got at JoAnn's for half price ($3)



I glued the candle holders to the glass containers using E-6000 and left them to set up overnight. Viola! They are now ready to fill and decorate as you wish...image the fun you can have with the other holidays as well!




Please check out what the rest of the team has made for you today!  
Kecia, Jenny, Jeanne, Lisa,  Sandy and Robin !

These are adorable and what a fantastic way to use items from the dollar store and make them look like they just were purchased from the local "very expensive" and gift shoppe. Some very lucky people are receiving these. I have to show them to my grandkidlets...they are going to love them.
