A Gem of a Challenge goes Spooky

Hi Folks
Today we have a new challenge starting over at A Gem of a Challenge.  Our theme for this week is:
Spooky (Halloween etc).

The prize as always is

2 individual digi images
(NO SETS, PERSONALISED WATERMARKS OR SENTIMENT SETS)
of the winners choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS......

I decided to make a little treat basket after seeing a tutorial over at Mel's blog.  Mel has some wonderful projects on her blog.  You can find the tutorial for the basket here.  Thanks Mel for sharing.


For my basket I used Batty papers available here from Pink Gem and the Halloween Calendar stamp available here.  I found the basket really easy to make using Mel's clear instructions.  I am going to add some orange tissue paper to line the basket and then fill it with treats for a little chap we know.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  Just pop over to A Gem of a Challenge to upload your entry.  Don't forget to check out the fab design team creations.
