Faery Ink Sponsors SBP challenge Blog this month

October brings out the warm colors and haunted wishes in the crafter in me. It also brings a new challenge to Your Scrapbook Place challenge blog. The guest sponsor is Faery Ink, and the image I used for my holiday box is called Ghost of Lenore. Since Lenore is a famous poem by Edgar Allen Poe, one of my fave writers, I used Lenore with her creator to alter a wooden box into a sweet Halloween decoration.
I rubbed some Tim Holtz stain on my box inside and out, then covered the sides with leftover patterned papers. I used up a lot of pearl flourishes, flowers, bows and tiny skeleton parts from my stash. I created the legs from white marbles, painting on faces and gluing them on.

I had loads of fun creating this one.
Now it's your turn to have some fun. The theme is Anything Goes, so link up your project for your chance to win prizes from our sponsor, Faery Ink!
