My dear friend Tasha was looking for a Halloween kit that was mainly orange and black. I didn't think that was such a tall order until I tried hunting for one and realized they all contain purple, green or teal. So I decided to make a kit inspired by Tasha...LOL. I hope you all like it as much as she did :) 

You can download it HERE.
