trick-or-treat! a blog hop with Halloween goodies . . .

Oh, yes, it's almost trick-or-treat time, and I DO like candy!
So do these two cuties:
(you can find them on Altered Pages' collage sheet "Vintage Halloween")

 It's a treat box--do you like that texture-y look on the side?  I'm liking
those chunky mica flakes (from Stampendous) on the top, so shiny and dimensional!

YUM!  (Not gonna lie, I'm a lil' bit drunk on those pumpkins right now . . .)

Wanna win a digital collage page?  Maybe more than one?  How 
about a super cool scissor mouse, wouldn't that be a fun treat?

Come trick-or-treat with the Altered Pages first ever blog hop--you can find
the details at the first link below.  I'll be away from a computer when the
 prize time comes, so be sure to check the Altered Pages blog to see if you
won.  My sweet design team sisters will be posting "my" winners there.
Each teamie will have two winners, PLUS there's the scissor mouse,
 so lots of chances for a treat or two!

Have fun trick-or-treat hopping your way through the Altered Pages
design team--don't forget to leave comments and "follow" along the way!

Terrific project, Trisha! Love all the texture - I've never used mica chips - you've inspired me!

... and your pumpkin candies look delicious (not on my diet, but I'm never adverse to cheating! LOL)

hope you're having fun doing whatever you're doing!

Tristan, do not, I repeat, do NOT start eating the pumpkins!!! It will end badly--I speak from experience!

Terry said...

Yummy altered box! I also love the texture those chunky mica flakes give. So how many mini pumpkins did you eat? I won't have sweets in the house, as I will eat and then feel so bad! Happy Weekend!

Trisha, too sweet, literally!!!! Great job and the mica is magical, isn't it? I have a jar with all the teeny tiny chips that break apart, it is like a treasure jar! Love the piece.

Terry, I don't even know how many I ate, that's how many--and ugh, I feel yuck.

Moderation in all things.

Even candy.

What a great idea Trisha (and those pumpkins - mmmm, yum!)

Sweet Tin... I love the image and the mica flakes are a great addition... you can't eat just one of the pumpkins. So I try to stay away! Thanks for a great idea!

Trisha, this is an amazing idea. I love it! It's a great idea and use for the box. You've got me wanting to try mica flakes. Will have to see about getting some. The box would be empty in my house. Lol I love the pumpkins and so does our dog. Thanks for participating in the hop.
