A Different Kind of Princess

Hi All!  I decided to do something a little different today and actually didn't make a card!  Instead I pulled out a plastic tube that I'd picked up from one of my LSS when it closed for a ridiculously low price to make a little Halloween treat holder.  I've been having fun with some new Kenny K stamps that I picked up (they are having a little sale this week so make sure to stop by!)- this is Princess Pia- and I LOVE how funky she is- no pink sparkles and traditional tiara for this princess :)  I colored her with my Copics to match some new Doodlebug Designs Halloween paper and then used some twine, gems and lace to pull the whole thing together.  I've never done one of these before but it was so much fun and pretty quick too so I'm sure I'll be doing some more.  Can I just say how excited I am to start with Halloween cards and projects?!?  I don't know what it is but I absolutely love the stamps, papers and other embellishments that make an appearance for this holiday and this was just the beginning...I can't help but wonder- do you feel the same way about papercrafting for Halloween?  Thanks so much for stopping by- I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R30, R22, BV34
Hair: YG61, YG63, YG67, BV20, BV23, BV29, E53, E55, E57
