Blog Candy for my Etsy Anniversary!

Happy Saturday!! Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Today I've been selling my handmade paper crafts on Etsy for one year and it's been quite a year. I've met a number of incredibly talented people from all over the world (you know who you are). My handmade paper designs have been shipped to 5 different countries and are for sale in a hospital boutique in Ohio and an art store in New Jersey. I'm designing for my favorite online store, Die Cuts R Us and working with the most amazing design team!! I'm truly blessed, that's for sure.

In appreciation and celebration of my past year, all items in Cara's Scrap 'N Stamp Art are 20% off. Take a peek and see what's new!

Now for some Halloween candy, blog candy that is.

Today's candy consists of:

Making Memories "Spellbound" 90 brad pack
Heidi Swapp Halloween Rub-Ons-1 black, 1 white
Making Memories "Spellbound" Mini Book Kit including 1 5x7 spiral bound mini book, 10 sheets of cardstock, 2 1 yd. ribbons, 234 tiny alpha stickers, 17 icon stickers, 12 tag stickers

If you'd like a chance to win the Halloween blog candy, here's what to do:

1. Become a blog and/or Facebook follower and leave me a comment with your favorite Halloween memory. It's easy to follow, just click on the appropriate button on the right sidebar.

2. Mention my blog candy on your blog. If you link back to my blog and let me know you've done so, you'll be entered twice. Dont' forget a comment so I can find you if you win.

Followed you over from 62 Cards and WOW...this Halloween candy is fabulous! I love Halloween and have many, many fun memories. My Mom always made handmade costumes for me and my siblings...but my favorite was a butterfly costume. She made it out of wire coat hangers than she twisted together into the framework of wings, and then used colored tissue paper for the wing parts. LOTS of work, but I was so proud of it!

My favorite halloween memory is the first time we too our first daughter out. She was just past a year old. We put her in a wagon & trick or treated for hours. I remember it was a beautiful night, we only wore sweatshirts (me & hubby) which is rare in Michigan. It was just a really good time for all of us.

Congrats on your Anniversary!! I am your newest follower! Your blog is so cute. My fave Halloween memory is from a few years ago. I helped my parents take in trick or treaters at their house and made some "witch's brew" and then we all went to a friend of the family's house for this awesome costume party. It was a lot of fun!
