Tricks and Treats at Gecko Galz.

Our new monthly Customer challenge begins today at Gecko Galz with the theme of Trick and Treats.  

Yeah, we're all so excited about Halloween that many of the new GG products for Sept are perfect for that theme, so you have plenty of time to create for the big day.  I've made a cute little decor project using child's blocks I've recolored with Sharpies on the front and painted with black gesso on the top and sides. The papers on top are digital from the new  Freak Show Digital Paper pack and a freebie from the Gecko Galz Pinterest page.  The adorable little Trick or Treaters were fussy cut from the from the Halloween is for Kids Collage sheet, backed with black card stock with toothpicks sandwiched in between.  Holes were drilled in the top of the blocks to hold them upright.

After trimming the sentiment from the new Wicked Words sheet, I backed it with 2 layers cut with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen, held with a card holder from Alpha Stamps.  On top are criss crossed spider web banner die cuts from Magnolia with a little jack-o-lantern sticker in the center.  The card holder was inserted in the hole drilled in the center block and embellished with an orange bow.  Be sure to visit the Gecko Galz Challenge Blog to see the fabulous inspiration from my teamies.  Hope you'll play along to win a wonderful prize from Gecko Galz.  We can't wait to see what you create.
