Spooky Treats for Crafty Secrets

I have been having a ball making my Halloween projects this year
and using the digitals provided by Crafty Secrets has made it even more fun!!
I love vintage Halloween the most and am loving this owl on his pumpkins
it is the cutest image and came from the 

Crafty Secrets "Halloween Images & Journal Notes"  booklets.
All of the background papers are from  Vintage Halloween CD #4.

I printed my Halloween papers for the bag on regular printer paper
so as the bag would be more flexible, the bag is a white lunch bag.
I cut a Top Note die from another piece of the printed paper, but this one on card stock.
I had a label I had on my desk I cut with a Spellbinders die, then added the
image to that, but first gluing some old black hairnet stuff I had in my stash...
bet you are wondering why on earth I had a black hairnet around, aren't you..lol!!

Well, my sister and I used to do craft shows and made lots of Halloween and I am sure
it is left from one of those spooky dolls we used to make (I rarely throw anything out)
"cuz, ya just never know" when you might need it!!

I added  a bit of black lace at the top of the bag, and a few other do-dads to finish it off.
Now all it needs is some treats to go in the bag and I think it is going to be "gifted"
to my Mom for Halloween!!

There is still time to get the Halloween/Fall sale packet at Crafty Secrets.

Oh my gosh, this is so awesome, Diane!! I just love the background!! The vintage image is fabulous!! How creative you are to use the hairnet!! It looks like a spooky spider web!! I don't throw anything out either, which is a huge problem with space in my craft room ;) Love this my friend!! Have a great day :)
