When I learned my Bloggerette Sorority secret swap sister was Karen, of Karen's Monday Musings, I was thrilled. I've recently come to know Karen through my flickr altered matchbox group and she is a sweetheart!
I wanted to make a treat bag that was quirky and fun but also had "some pretty" to it. So I started where I always start (etsy!) and found this lovely lady skeleton image at Antique Graphique.
A little lace, a touch of bling, some well-placed flowers and you have a special trick or treat bag for a special sorority sister.
I filled it with a mix of store bought and handmade items,
including this altered bingo card and little vintage Halloween tussie mussie.
I love how the witches hat turned out thanks to my favorite new black trim and feathered friend.
Fall cookie cutters,
some vintage trim, an altered carte de visite,
and a mini accordion book using images from Lisa's Altered Art.
Then I tucked in a little bit of this & a little bit of that for what I hope is a perfect treat bag!
My secret sister is fashionably late but I'll be sure to share when it arrives.
