Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes + Option of Halloween Treat Holder!

Good Afternoon!
I wanted to start of today's post by sharing some wonderful news that I found out this morning. My September tag for 12 Tags of 2013 was chosen in the Top 12!


To say I am over the moon would be an understatment! I am chuffed to bits and the fact that it is my birthday this Sunday has made this an extra special birthday surprise! 
I have placed in the top 12 before back at the end of last year with my December tag so I never expected to be chosen again. I am so surprised and I can't stop grininng! lol If you fancy a peek at my tag just click HERE to go to the post :)


This week's challenge at PAPERTAKE WEEKLY is Anything Goes + An Option of a Halloween Treat Holder! Now I will admit that when I first saw the option I didn't think I would play along with it. However I remembered that I had some paper bags stashed away that would work perfectly for this theme! 
On my bag I have also used one of my favourite Penny Black images, I just love the older Halloween character stamps by them!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenge:
