Erin Lee Creative Halloween Challenge "Coffin Candy Dish"

Hello!

So glad it's friday and that tomorrow is SATURDAY!!!!  The last three weeks have been so busy for me, that I can finally breath!  Tomorrow about 10 of us are going white water rafting, in 2 man rafts!  Needless to say, I some what scared, yet excited at the same time!  Of course being the scrapbooker that I am, I bought a water proof camera for each raft, to capture all the excitement!  Hopefully I won't be frozen like a statue and I'll be able to take pictures. 

Ok, enough about me and my happenings...on to the challenge.  Erin at Erin Lee Creative is having a Halloween challenge, it can be a  card, layout or project.  Well I went for the project...a candy dish.  I  usually don't say this but the pictures don't do it justice...it's so much cuter in person.  I didn't have good lighting this morning!  :(




Recipe:
Cricut Cartridge: Happy Hauntings (one of my gifts from PC!)
Paper: Bazzill, Theresa Collins, Metallic
Punches: Stampin Up, EK Success
rhinestones
and of course candy!
coffin cut 11 1/2 "
gate and layer cut 3"
tombstone and layer cut 5" (one is flipped for the back)

I thought the "M.T. Tomb" was perfect for a candy dish, since it would soon be empty!

Have a creative day and weekend!

Ok Liz, I must be going crazy - I have studied your picture of this coffin and can't figure out how you made the light gray layer that goes over the sides? I have made the cuts with all the layers, etc and cannot figure it out. How did you do it? I am trying to create this and it is driving me crazzzzzzzzzzzzyy!! Thanks!
