That's How Thursday and Hip Hop day!

Happy Hip Hop!!!
Big... HUGE... exciting day!

Finally, the new Unity website coming today... we hope!
Woo Hoo!!!
Have patience... it will be worth it.

But before you run off to check and see if it is up,
I'm back today to show you all the deets for my Boo'd Box from Monday.

I'm using the {ippity} stamp set That's Creepy and Love in Return to decorate the box.  The journaling stamp from Love in Return is perfect for Halloween cards or pages.

Have you heard of being Boo'd
It is a fun Halloween game where you leave some goodies for your neighbor with a little poem to encourage them to do the same for another neighbor.  This year I decided to create a little Boo'd Box for my co-workers.  They are a crafty bunch and I think they will get a kick out of it.

Here is the Boo Poem I used.
There are several variation available on the web.

This treat is for you, we hope you enjoy.
The idea is simple, one we hope you employ.
You pass "BOO" along to 2 other friends.
Along with any kind of Halloween favors.
If we do our part to spread the fun,
By Halloween night it all be done.
We're a friendly bunch,
So please do your part to keep
"BOO" on the run!

I plan to fill it with some yummy Halloween candy.

I found the tutorial for this box HERE.  Maria Bell has fabulous written instructions so why try to rewrite perfection. 

But, I would love to show you how I made this project in the video below from start to finish.  I always find watching someone make something is easier on my brain.  Plus, I share some tips I learned along the way and how the decorations came to be.  So, I hope you enjoy it.

And, you must will try Boo'ing some of your friends or neighbors!  Lots of fun.

If you didn't start the hop at the beginning, then you must visit the Unity Blog first.  You do not want to miss any of the AMAZING creations by Unity and Ippity design teams today!
