A PTI Halloween Treat!

Happy Tuesday to ya! I have a very busy day today, so I will get right to it. I made this gift basket for PTI's Monthly Guest Designer Challenge for September. I find out today if I was picked. Wish me luck!

During October, my neighborhood loves to 'BOO' each other by leaving a small gift on your front porch, ringing the doorbell and running off! After you are 'Boo'd', you are supposed to Boo someone else. It is a lot of fun as it is completely anonymous! I thought this would make a really cute Boo gift for this year. (These homemade treats will be gone in about a day and I will make more!)
This 'Boo Basket' is filled with yummy Cake Pops! Cake Pops are cake mixed with icing, dipped in chocolate. They are not hard to make, but a little time consuming - you really should try them at least once! (Check out Bakerella's website to see her instructions on how to make them)

Here is some quick math to explain the goodness!
Cake + Icing + Chocolate + Sprinkles = YUM!

I used PTI's new Boo To You set for these cute tags. This set has really cute images as well as great sentiments that are perfect for Halloween Treats! I stamped the images on Vintage Cream cardstock. I layered each tag onto either Basic Black, Summer Sunrise, and Pumpkin Pie using my Pinking Nesties. I sponged Summer Sunrise around the edges of each tag.
The sentiment on the bucket was computer generated, but the words on the tags are all from the BTY set.
"Eek!" is right - they are that good!

I created this pumpkin by stamping Polka Dot Basics II set in Pumpkin Pie onto Summer Sunrise and then stamping the pumpkin images on top. I got the idea for this from Heather Nichols blog. I packaged them up and tied them with miscellaneous ribbons: PTI, Offray, etc. I bought the packaging (treat bags & lollipop sticks) for the cake pops at Michael's on the cake decorating isle. I used orange dipping chocolates and Halloween sprinkles.
Here is a picture of what the inside of these babies looks like! YUM-O!
