Peachy Keen Challenge #38

Something a little different for our challenge this week folks.....
We want you to create something using this criteria......

Fall/Autumn is in full swing, and using the month of October an inspiration, 
create a layout or project based on the season and use PEACHY KEEN stamps. 
The only catch is that it can't be a card!

This leaves your theme wide open to Autumn,
 Halloween, or Harvest Elements, 
(note, since it's October
a Thanksgiving feast scene wouldn't really work for this challenge, 
but gourds, pumpkins, etc. would be appropriate!) 

Well, as I'm playing with the new stamp sets that were launched yesterday on the blog hop, 
I thought again of Halloween. Hmmm...not a card! Oooer!! More paper engineering!!
I searched the web for inspiration and found THIS
A Martha Stewart template to make a coffin treat box....Ta-Da!!





I tried to make it look as if Frank had dug up through the floor of the coffin.


I just HAD to use my PK-643 'Frankly' stamp set again. He's SO cute!!
Frank was coloured with Copics and the coffin was made with papers from a kit by Echo Park,
that I grabbed at the Ally Pally craft show on the 25th September. 

This was great fun and I must admit, I do like a bit of paper engineering and I'm getting better at it I think.
For some more fun and to feast your eyes on the wonderful samples created by my fellow DT friends, 
please go along the the Peachy Keen blog. Play along with us for a chance to win a smashing prize. 
You have until Sunday 17th October to enter.

Have a great week!!!
