Chocolate Makeup!

It's another Friday and that means it's time for another Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge from Paper Makeup Stamps! This week's challenge is brought to you by...ME! Since Halloween is almost upon us, I'm sure a lot of you are busy putting little treats together for parties or the usual door-to-door visitors! So...this week's challenge is a special trick and treat concept! I want you to use CHOCOLATE! Yep, I want to see a creation with chocolate colored paper and trimmings on it...and not just any creation, but a GIFT BAG or Treat Box/Bag! So bust out all that brown paper and get crackin' on a snazzy little container of sorts!

I decided to go away from the typical Halloween stuff we are seeing right now and go a bit more general with my little treat box...

I bought one of those undecorated kraft boxes at Hobby Lobby and altered it using Chocolate Chip themed paper by Stampin Up. To keep up with the *chocolate* and Treat Box idea, I used the sentiment "Life is Sweet" from the Freckled Lemonade set by Paper Makeup Stamps. Now I've got a cute little box to fill with yummy candy! It's the perfect size to fill with...Chocolate!

And I couldn't just make a treat box without a card to match! And naturally I reached for the PMS new monster...HERSHEY! LOL! I thought he was the perfect pairing with the sentiment "Life is Sweet" with all his chocolatey mess! And to make his mess even more fun, I added some Stickles over all the chocolatey goodness!

I hope that you will participate in my challenge this week! Remember that anyone who plays along using Paper Makeup Stamps (digi or rubber) is entered to win some FREE RUBBAH! Of course, we aren't requiring the PMS stamps...which means that ANYONE can play with why not give it a go?

If you play...make sure you link up to Today's Post on the PMS Blog...and if you are uploading to your gallery at SCS or PCP, make sure you use the tag M4TW48 so we can find it!

Can't wait to see what you create!
