Get Funky Challenge - Halloween!

Boo! Happy World Cardmaking day to one and all of you! Finally got around to doing some crafting today after a long morning watching Jack playing Football. It was the first round of their cup games and they got through after extra time and penalties! I think my Hubby found it more stressful than watching his favourite team play.
I decided I would make something to take part in Anice's Get Funky blog challenge. This month's theme is Halloween and I have made a little trick or treat bucket.

I chose the Daisy design papers from the Funky Wordbooks cd. I printed the lilac and green daisies backing papers and the lower case letters.
I used an empty Slimfast container and covered it with the green backing paper. I then cut some scalloped borders with a Fiskars punch and added them to the top and bottom of the paper. I punched holes in the side of the bucket to thread through an Asda sparkly purple headband for a handle and embellished that with an organza bow.
I then cut some labels from the purple card to match the scallop borders and another from the lilac daisies paper. I doodled fake stitching on the label and stuck on letters from Funky Hand and American crafts.
I stamped an Elzybells witch from the Trick or treat trio and coloured her in with Promarkers, cut her out and stuck her to the panel with foam pads.
I made up a flower from felt flower shapes, a purple fabric flowetr and some die cut shapes and stuck to the top right hand corner of the label. I embellished with a few gems.
I decided the bucket was looking a bit empty so I made some treat bags from cellophane bags and staples a Nesties label on with fake stitching an a stamped Boo! Coloured with Promarkers.
I am really proud of the project, hence the photo overload!
A couple more things to finish off today so I may be back later!
