10 years ago Brent and I decided to get married on Halloween, and it's been a blast ever since. To help share in the festivities, I've decided to repeat last's years fun with another round of yummy stamping BLOG CANDY for my readers!
All you need to do to enter is leave me a comment sharing what your FAVOURITE costume has been (maybe yours, a child or a friends) and you'll be entered in a draw for one of Stampin' Up!'s Level 1 hostess Patterns Pack Designer Series paper, with 60 gorgeous sheets of 6x6" papers! No, the cookies are NOT included in the prize -- you wish :P
Entries must be received by Monday November 3rd, with the winner's name posted on the 4th.
In the meantime, here are the anniversary cards we exchanged this morning. I was kicked out of my stamping room yesterday afternoon when he locked himself up in there with Morgan and Serena to work on my secret card. Turns out that the traditional gift for a 10th anniversay is pewter, so he went to town with pewter brads, etc, and affixed a pewter-style bracelet inside!
I found it funny this morning to see how much our colour schemes matched -- I guess the Halloween theme does that for you.
PS. You absolutely MUST head over to Kristina Werner's blog to see how Stampin' Up! staff celebrate Halloween... the video at the end will have you PIYP!!
Does a pet costume count? Penelope, my pug's costume on her first halloween was a LADYPUG :)
So, (and not only because it is her first holloween) I would have to say my fav costume is my daughter's. She will be a cute little dragonfly!
Congrats on 10 years!
I think my fave costume would have to be Jonathan's costume last year. His dad made him Mack the Truck from the movie Cars. It was AWESOME!
Favourite costume? My DS's first costume last year -- a little pirate, complete with pirate ship (an umbrella stroller dressed as a ship)!

Glad to have stumbled onto your blog!
Fun blog candy - woohoo!
My favorite costume s were dh 7 I dressing up as Thing 1 & Thing 2 for a Halloween Party we went to before we had kids.
I have lotsa of favorite costumes but one of my favs was when a co worker dress as Jack from Jack in the Box. It was perfect!!
my favorite costume of my daughters was her first halloween...she was a ballerina. i made her tutu...it was very full and edged with silver thread...a tiny bit of sparkle!
Favorites costumes... I have a few. I refuse to do the traditional pumpkin costume for my kids' first Halloween. My son's first costume (10 years ago) was a Hershey Kiss! Tonight my 9-month old daughter will be a butterfly. My best friend sent me a picture of her costume for today and she's an iPhone! Her name is Michele, so it's a "Shellular phone" LOL
Well, my favorite costume is the one I made for my oldest son on his 2nd Halloween. I do not sew and at the time was not crafty at all. I made him a pizza costume with felt and hot glue. It was so cute. He is nearly 8 now and we still have it. I was very proud of that costume!!
I love that your husband stamps. In the spirit of husbands doing awesome things I'd have to say that my favorite costumes were the red riding hood and ninja costumes my husband sewed for our kids. It was great!
What do you think- should I share this photo with his girlfriend?
And my husband and I share a Halloversary with you and your husband! Although we were married in September, the night we first met was on Hallowe'en, at a friend's party in 1998. So it is our 10 year Halloversary this year! Cheers to all of us --- !!!

My favourite costume was one I made about 20 years ago when I went as Hiawatha. I have a photo somewhere, and will one day scrap it.
This year I went as a witch. One of the grade one kids at school asked me what I was. I said 'a witch' to which he answered, 'you don't look any different than usual!'
My favourite costume was one I made myself. I had 3 mini cereal boxes tied togteher and around my neck. Each box had a blood soaked knife coming out of it. Yes, I was a cereal killer (groan..)
Hope you had a great Halloween!
Love your blog
She took a huge box (maybe from a dishwasher we had gotten), wrapped it with Christmas paper and went as a "Christmas Present". It doesn't sound very funny but it really was.
Hope you have a great day!
Hope you had a wonderful day.
I attended a Halloween party a couple of years ago where this man had cereal boxes stuck all over his clothes. He also had knives sticking out in places with fake blood on them. He was dressed as a 'CEREAL KILLER'!!! Thought it was hilarious!!
Have a great week!
My favorite costume was one I did several years ago.
I was carbination. It was pretty cute actually and I still have one friend who calls me "carbs".
I wore light blue pajamas that had bubbles all over them. White, navy and a teal color. I then took balloons that matched the colors in the pajama's and filled them with heluim.
I then tied the balloon strings to my hair causing it to lift up the sections of my hair. It was really cute! I have pictures somewhere.
I also drew more bubbles on my face.
I won the price at the costume party that year.
