Goth Lili (kinda)

   Happy Wednesday!!!!! Phew, the weekend is almost here.  Are you having a good week?  Can you believe that tomorrow is Oct 1st. The summer flew by, and now we are heading straight for fall.  I know I have told you, but I LOVE fall, and everything it offers, the apple picking, the local farm events, the fairs, and of course Halloween.

So today is Wednesday and Wednesday=Inky Impressions Challenge.
This weeks challenge was to make a gift.  Of course Iwas last minute putting this together, but I wanted to give the challenge a try.

When I was trying to decided what I was going to make, I started to scan the room to see what impulse purchase I had made to alter.  I am real good at buying things to alter. While scanning, I had a came across this Salsa container that I had saved, knowing it would be perfect for a project.  Well, I am on a Halloween kick right now, so I decided to make "Secret Lili" go "goth".  I am not sure how effective that was, as she still looks so sweet.  I used my new Basic Grey paper and paper pieced her outfit and tried to color her hair black.  I obviously need more practice with the black hair.  I even gave her black nail polish.
now, if I was better prepared I would have filled this up with Hersey Kisses (halloween colors), but seeing I put this together last night, it is what it is.  I will fill it up today and retake a picture to get a better feel of the goodie container.

If you get a chance, check out what the Inky Impressions DT came up with this week.  You won't be dissappointed.  They are sooo good.
