Happy what???

Good morning!  My niece celebrated her birthday earlier this week and I wanted to share what I made her.  Now, having her birthday in October, she totally loves getting things with a Halloween theme, so, here you go...

I made her a secret box with some cute Halloween images from The Stamping Boutique.  I colored the images with Bic Markits and copics.  The DP is DCWV and I ran it through my swirls embossing folder for some added texture.  To help keep the box closed, I added some ribbon from my stash.

 Here is one side showing The Owl's Silly Costume.

 The other side shows Halloween Tea Time.

 The top of the box is showing Halloween Journal.  I noticed after I was all finished, I got it a little off center. Ooops.

Here is the inside full of lots of yummy treats.
