Holiday Challenge #2!

Are you ready for a new challenge? I actually have two for you today. Originally it was going to be one, but some of you I thought were itching for a Layout challenge so I came up with one of those to! So here is your first hint regarding the first challenge:

Carmel apples? Say what? Do you think you know what it could be about?

Here is another hint:

Now do you get it? I want you to create a LO with "apples" as part of it. It can be an embellishment, photo, title, or paper. I love this time of year because we have great produce and my family's favorite has to the be apple. Here is my Layout for this challenge:

My homemade apple pie that is huge is what I scrapped about. I also stamped the apples In the pail and played with my Copic Markers to color them in! Again, you don't have to do a LO about apples, just incorporate apples into the LO. You could do something about fall or the first day or school or something like "The Apple of My Eye". Just be creative and spend some time creating!

Now, this was my original challenge: Make favor boxes for your Thanksgiving table or Halloween. Or alter something as a hostess gift if you are not cooking this year. I usually do not do dreary and scary for Halloween, but decided to alter these boxes for my kids. I was kind of sick of looking at the typical orange, brown, and purple I usually do for Halloween. Instead, I took three take out containers that I had in my stash for like FOREVER and glimmer misted them. I then altered the fronts with Waffle paper and a few different embellishments. I finished each box off with the first initial of my child's name. Here they are:

Make sure you post a link to your blog on my comment section so we can all go check them out and get inspired. I can't wait to see what you come up with! Your next challenge will be posted on Oct. 29! Can you guess what that will be?
