Treat Coffin and Basket/Stampin' Royalty Guest Spot

I've been anticipating this day, I was picked for a guest designer spot at Stampin' Royalty and have had my assignment for awhile now, so it gave me plenty of time to come up with something really good and I'm very proud of the outcome.
The challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week is: Anything But A Card
With fall approaching and one of the favorite holidays of the year-Halloween, I decided that would be my project for this challenge.
Back in August Project Tuesday had a week that was to make a Treat Box. I clicked on the link to Splitcoast Stampers and found the instructions(always good), but it looks like a Treat Basket to me. Oh well, it seemed perfect for the Halloween papers I used and I think it would make a really cute center piece for any Halloween party. I'll give you a hint--one 12" x 12" piece of paper makes the basic basket(box). There are some very clever artisans sharing their wonderful talents with us.
Speaking of which, on to the other project in the photo. A friend of mine put me onto Janine Tinklenberg's blog, be sure to click on her name and go for a wonderful browse, a very talented lady. I found her very cute Coffin Treat Box and low and behold she has generously shared a template for it. Consequently, I CASED her project because again it was perfect for my assignment for this week's challenge.
I hope you'll all be inspired to go over to Stampin' Royalty and join in on this week's challenge for some fun. Don't forget to visit the for real Design Team members blogs for extra added inspiration. They are a great group of ladies and I always enjoy playing in their challenges. This week Anything But A Card will get you all to play outside your normal comfort zone of cards and create something a little different.
Before I leave you this morning I just have to do a little clapping, yes, that would be for myself. Not only did I get this great guest spot this morning, but over at The Color Dare, Riley and her team chose my Flowery Wishes card to be featured this week. A great big hug and Thanks to The Color Dare.
Next, a big drum roll, clapping--I got published again!!! In Just Cards! Volume 19, Fall 2010---This time they added a new section called Interior Cards, so the front and inside of my card got in the magazine. I know you can't tell how excited I am, so I'll try to come down to earth and get busy making a new packet of cards to send off for future publication and get back to all my favorite challenges.
