Hope everyone's having a great weekend!  Our weekend has been pretty packed.  My son, Noah, had his 1st playoff game and the "White Ninjas" did awesome!!!  He's really excited that today we are going to watch our professional LA soccer team, The Galaxy,  which is a fundraiser for our AYSO organization, and which Noah has been playing in for the last 4 years. Even more fun is that he was selected to participate in the "High Five" line up before the game where he gets to "High Five" all of the players.  It's going to be a hectic day rushing from a baseball game to the afternoon soccer game but I'm sure it will be lots of fun! :)  We did have a chance to also have some Halloween fun this weekend.  We went to a great Halloween store and the kids were able to get some costumes.  My older boys had to of course get scary costumes but my youngest, Ethan is going to be "Mike Wazoski" from his favorite Monsters University.  We also went to the Pumpkin Patch which is always a fun event for the family.  

So with that being said, I have definitely been in a "Halloween" mood  this week and I wanted to share some "Halloween" inspiration for today's Sunday blog! 

Here is my Halloween project...

So this is an altered wooden treat box holder which I picked up at Michael's for $1! I had so much fun altering this for Halloween and making it a fun treat holder.  The first thing I did was paint it with some black acrylic paint.  I really love the Martha Stewart paints which have such great pigment. I used "Black Beetle" to color both the inside and outside of the box.  I then sprayed it up with my LSG Starburst spray in "Screamin Banshee Black"  This color has a purple hue which is so perfect for Halloween projects!   For the star of my project, I couldn't resist taking out one of my favorite Halloween images called "Trixxie Treat" by Kenny K.  Isn't she a cutie?!!!  She's so perfect for my project theme as well! :) 

Here are some additional pics....
