Dottie's World Challenge

Over on Dottie's World you might have noticed we have a new designer, Adele. Well she was really nervous about setting her first challenge but if you go and have a look you'll see she's an absolute natural-no need to wory at all!
Adele said.....This week I want to see a tag or tags of any shape or size. It could be tag shape toppers, gift tags, tag books....and because hubby and me have just celebrated our wedding anniversary....for an extra Dottie bonus I would love to see some hearts and flowers too!!!

Well, The new collection was launched this weekend 'Halloween' and I desperately wanted to have a play but how do you put hearts and flowers on a halloween project? I thought and I thought and I came up with a candy box with a spooky flower on and a tag with Dracula George saying "I vant to eat your candy! Ha....Ha.....Ha."

I made the decorative strip for the sides with some of the characters from the new collection, the box was a bit fiddly to make but I think it turned out ok.


The Patterned paper is from the new Imaginisce Halloween collection Hallowhimsy and I LOVE IT!

This is gorgeous Lou, the colours are so rich, especially with the velvet ric-rac on the edge. Love the characters on the sides - it must have taken you an age to make, but a true work of art! xxx
