Hocus Pocus! Happy Halloween!

I love halloween and all the little ghouls and goblins, giggle.  When I saw this little witch, Sugi's Hocus Pocus from Lacy Sunshine, I couldn't wait to colour her up!  I used different colours than just the traditional black for her dress, inspired by my husband.  He is a very wise man and my biggest fan!  So here is my finished project!

I will add materials later.

Rory Witchy Fun pillow box

Bettina here today showing you my very first piece for Lacy Sunshine and I am so thrilled about that!

I have chosen to make a little pillow box as we are still closing in on Halloween, and these are perfect for it. A little treat snack in a cute box (or creepy if you prefer that) and decorate it in any way you want. I have chosen to add some embellies in form of pearls and flowers and tued it all together with a little ribbon. Rory Witchy Fun is coloured with my promarkers. Hope you'll like it.
