Graphic 45 Happy Hauntings Collection

Graphic 45's Happy Hauntings Collection 2012
Created by Charlie LaBonte
For The Hens' Den
My husband and I were at a car show in Long Beach WA.  It is the weekend after Labor Day weekend that this small town gets so darn crowed, it amazes me every time we go that you can see anything at all.  They call it "The Run to the End of the World".   Hundreds of classic cars attend that show every year. If you are ever in the area, you should check it out. 
On our way back, we stopped at a "collectables" store and I fould this cute little blue chest.  Not sure what I would do with it, but is was coming home with me.
Then....we got Graphic 45's Happy Hauntings Collection in the store and I know what I would be doing with it.   I painted it black and added some hardware and then made a trip to Michaels and after a few hours of playing, I have my project done.

Here is what it looks like now.   I had so much fund making this.  Here are a few more pictures.

   We are featuring Graphic 45 and Happy Hauntings all month long and someone will get to win this.  Every day throughout October, we will be featuring different projects using this paper lie.   You will be amazed at some of the projects.  Some of them, it is hard to beleive they are using a Halloween line.   Details on how to win will follow. 
Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please visit our store The Hens' Den  and shop or post your projects in our gallery.  We would love to hear from you.


  1. That's a fabulous piece Charlie. You almost make me want to do a Halloween cabinet too! (It's the one season I don't do much for usually!) Thanks for sharing.

  2. Looks like you had fun Charlie! I love the black bird but am particularly fond of the skeleton! ;-)
