I'm a Sweetie!!

I was SO thrilled when I won the challenge last month at Paper Sweeties Challenges.  Not only did I get to pick out a prize for winning, but I was also invited to design with them for the October Sketch Challenge.  Here is the inspiration photo for this month's challenge at Paper Sweeties.
So, I decided that I wanted to try something a little bit different for this challenge.  Rather than making a card or tag, which I seem to do ALL the time.....I chose to make a little treat box.  After I made this one, I created one for each of my nieces and nephews that I plan to hand out soon.  It doesn't show it in the photo, but I ended up stuffing them with suckers, candy and treats.
The box was cut from a piece of cardboard, and I covered it with some Autumn colored pattern papers to match the inspiration photo.  I added the door and window which are from Maya Road, and I painted and glittered those.  Then, I added some flowers, ribbon, a flower cut from a dress pattern, and then the sentiment strips which are stamped with Paper Sweeties sentiment stamps.
I'm playing along and entering a couple of challenges with this project.  I never seem to be able to find many challenges where I can make my projects fit, but this is where I found to enter this.
