Halloween Blog Candy!


** This post will stay on top until 9-20-2011. Please scroll down to see new posts. **

I wasn’t planning on offering blog candy this month, BUT I messed up and ordered 2 Apothecary Emporium paper pads. With Halloween coming up soon, I thought I would offer it up as blog candy now so that the winner will have time to use it to make some creepy, fun projects.

The blog candy consists of these two Halloween related items, a Echo Park Apothecary Emporium 6x6 paper pad and a brand new Sleepy Hollow DVD. (You can click on the images for more information.)

 

The blog candy will end on September 20th and I will use Random.org to pick the winner. I am having foot surgery at the end of September and I won’t be able to drive for 4 weeks so I want to be able to get this to the post office before then.

 

So what do you have to do to get a chance to win my Halloween candy?

  1. Be a follower of my blog
  2. Enter your info in the Linky tool below
  3. Leave a comment telling me what you love best about Halloween, what was your favorite costume, or just saying “Hi”.

Easy peasy! Good luck!

Hello, Cheryl!
In my country we don´t celebrate Halloween, but I love those yummy papers you are offering as candy.
Thanks for the chance :)

Karen B. said...

Awesome candy and you know, I've never seen that movie? What I love most about halloween now is hearing about the three hundred versions of what my boys want to be and then seeing them dressed up as what they finally settled on. Too cute@

Leanne said...

Hey Cheryl!!
My favorite memory is when I was young we would go on hayrides and have a fall festival at church! The older men would hide out in the woods and jump out and scare us to death!! I still laugh when I think of beating one of them up with my high heel shoe!! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome blog candy! Hugs, Leanne

LaJanette said...

Hi Cheryl! I hope all goes well with your surgery :) I LOVE dressing up for Halloween! Last year my husband and I dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood and the big bad Wolf, adult versions LOL

Kimberly said...

Oh wishing you a fast recovery from your surgery....I just love all the little ones that dress up for halloween...frankenstien,goblins, fun unique costumes...not much of a fan of being a table. My mom's great idea when i was 8 or 9. Made a square tabletop to fit on my shoulders and glued plates, silverware and such on top...i tell you it was so hard getting to doors, noone could be around and to reach in front to get candy was a nightmare...we didn't think ahead.ha ha...tfs

Country Mouse said...

WooHoo..I'm lucky #13!! LOL One of my favorite Halloween memories is the "Bride" costume my Mom made for me one year. My sister was a witch. We used to catch the local hay ride and it would take us all over our small town to Trick or Treat. Such fond memories!

Hi Cheryl

My favorite thing about Halloween is going to haunted houses, my favorite costume as kid was when I was Casper, but I didn't really like the plastic mask. lol
I am already a follower, thank you for the chance to win:)

Annette Bowes said...

Hi Cheryl, oh we used to have so much fun with Halloween in England, one of the best times was when the office all went out in costume and I was a witch and my brother never recognised me lol! Good luck with the foot surgery, hope it isn't to painful. Off to catch up on your creations as I have been out of blog land for a little while, have a great weekend, take careX:)

Starla B. said...

First of all, thanks for the chance to win! Halloween is my favorite holiday. The thing I love most...the costumes! One time my dad dressed up as a can of shaving cream...he even made this apparatus so that when you pushed the button on the top of his costume, shaving cream would come out the nozzle. It was fantastic! Thanks again!

Creative Diva said...

My favorite thing of Halloween is that my and my husband love to dress up for Halloween and have fun scaring the trick o treaters. LOl But for the little ones, we don't scare them. I hope everything goes well with your Foot

Wow, what a lovely candy!
Well, I have no Halloween stories, as in Ukrainian culture we didn't have any of this until few years ago. Ukrainians celebrate this day by going to the cemeteries and praying for souls of the departed ones. And here in Canada I watch what people do for Halloween and their way to have fun on this day. Our family goes for walks in the neighbourhood to see how people decorate their houses and front yards. Some are really creative and fun!

Chrissy said...

Thankyou dor the chance Cheryl, love the papers...fantastic, AND a DVD, mmm..candy in itself...We dont celebrate Halloween in NZ, but I do remember years ago, my son wanted to do trick or treat with friends, so I let him dress up, and all ready to go, he passed the hallway mirror, took one look at himself and scared himself sensless...No he didnt go out that year, and dont think he ever did after that..lol..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Linda said...

This is a great pad. Thanks for offering it to us. My favorite Halloween memory was when my daughter, who is a nurse practitioner, was having an asthma attack. She was determined to take her children Trick or Treating. So we dressed her up in a robe and slippers, wrapped gauze around her head and put her in my Mom's wheelchair. Her Best Friend wore my daughter's lab coat, hung her stethoscope around her neck and pushed her around the neighborhood.

Foot surgery, sounds painful. I don't do pain so you should do pain meds! :)

Thanks for the chance to win!

Linda said...

I love how excited my Mom would get about Halloween. She loved it. She dressed me up as a ghost when I was 3 turned me toward the mirror and I fell down crying, and was scared to death. I never liked dressing up after that but I love to when everyone else is dressed up.

Marlene said...

Oooh...yummy paper! :) What I love best about Halloween? The candy, of course!!! I always buy tons and we never get any trick or treaters! That means I have to eat it ALL. Such is life. *snicker*

Annelies said...

Halloween is not so big in Belgium (yet), but I love decorating pumpkins for it :) I'm following and there's a link in my sidebar . Thanks for a chance to win! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

Jennifer Scull said...

oh I have been eyeing this paper pack for a while now.... of course I have the pink one, but the patterns in this are so gorgeous, too! and Sleepy Hollow is one of our fave spooky movies! we don't happen to own it, so this would be a wonderful prize. :)

will be saying prayers for your upcoming surgery. I am sure everything will go just fine. :)


For Halloween each year, some friends & our family get together and put on a 'hot dog house' - we give away freshly grilled hot dogs, coffee, hot cocoa, water, & chips to all of the people in our little town trick-or-treating. we've been doing this for almost 10 years now. it's all free for people who stop by and we don't accept donations either. just a special thing we do, kinda like a grand RAK to the community. we usually have 3 families putting it on and give away about 300 or so hot dogs. people look forward to it every year! our sons have even come home from college to take part, it's that much a part of our family tradition!

Jackie R. said...

Sprytebyrd said...

HI Cheryl :) This paper is definitely on my wish list! Haven't seen the movie yet either!
I LOVE Halloween, the colors, the crisp fall air, the fun costumes.. I'm a big fan of skulls and bats in crafting, so I love having an excuse to use them at Halloween! Probably one of my favorite holidays!
Hugs to you and wishing you a speedy recovery!

Helen said...

Hi, Cheryl! What I like best about Halloween is that it's fall! I love bonfires & cool air and hot cocoa! When I was in 4th grade (a LONG time ago) I was Annie in a town parade and had this huge yellow stuffed dog I carried around with me. I won second place in the town costume contest. Cool, huh? lol

Sugarlips said...

I hope your surgery goes really well. I love the colors of halloween.
Thanks for such a fabulous giveaway.

Anita said...

Halloween is a fun time for my hubby because he helps decorate the local air museum for Fright Night.

Michele and Josee' said...

Hi Cheryl! How awesome is this blog candy! THANKS for the opportunity! My favorite Halloween memory is of the "bunny" costume that my grandmother made, that was handed down from several older cousins and then both of my older brothers! :) By the time it got to me it was all patched up and very comfortable. I don't think that my Grandma would have called her sewing "crafting," it was mostly done out of necessity.. but she always seemed to have a smile on her face while she was doing it!

Joy said...

what wonderful candy! I love the hayrides, the bonfires, and time with friends!

danie said...

AWESOME candy Cheryl!! LOVE that paper from EP!! Thank you for the chance to win it! My favorite part of Halloween is seeing my girls dress up and trick or treat and then watching Its the Great Pumpkin :) You know I love following your work - it is such a source of inspiration! xx

Lisa Lynn said...

Cheryl, wonderful candy. The fun of Halloween is watching my kids get excited about it. My favorite costume is one that a sewed for my son when he was 18 months which was a skunk. He took a picture smelling a flower which was adorable.

Jenny said...

My favorite costume is Wonder Woman! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!!! I LOVE EP!

Mary G. said...

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. I LOVE that paper!!! And then, of course, there's Johnny Depp... :)

Good luck with your surgery!!!

Heather said...

What FUN blog candy!!!

hmmm ... Halloween.... I like ORANGE and black... I get to create fun cards and carve pumpkins with the kids. The weather is cooler and we get to get outside more.

Oh... and hi!!! :)

Wendy - AKA Mrs. B said...

Awww, Cheryl - Halloween... My favorist holiday of all. At our house, we have a 28ft pirate ship - decorated all year for all holidays! The pirates come out on halloween - swords, d'blooms and all cannons afire! Arrrrr (((hugs))

Scrapalajen said...

I just LOVE the look the kids give me when I hand out the candies. Awww...Just gorgeous!!!!

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

I used to dress up with my kids - usually a clown, but I worked in a restaurant too and sometimes did a "wench" outfit! Waaaaay too old to do that now!

Jamie M. said...

I love all the candy!! I can't wait to have a kid so I can steal their candy.

K-E Kreations said...

I wasn't that into Halloween as a kid, but once I had kids of my own & lived in a neighborhood rather than the country, I've really grown to love it. I handmake my kids costumes every year. It's hard to choose a favorite; we've done all the Disney princesses, Harry Potter, dinosaurs, dogs & last year for my tween - the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp version).

SusanLotus said...

Just saying Hi! :)
Well, I can add that I love the warm orange colour of a pumpkin!
Hugs!

HandmadebyTLC said...

Cheryl, this is such a great idea! I have always loved October and Halloween became my largest reason why when both of my children were born in October and every year I hand made every costume they ever wore! You should see the Giraffe head Sammantha wanted when she was 7! Too cute! Then later, every party with the dunking of apples, scary wooded paths and strobe lights and the Halloween costume contests with all their friends at the bowling alley or at Hocking Hills with the outdoor challenge group! I've rambeled enough now and will finish by saying HIYA, glad to visit, your autumn card is adorable and thanks for the opportunity!
Hugs
Tammy Louise

MiamiKel said...

Oh how sweet of you! I hope your surgery goes well and know that a friend in Miami will be keeping you in prayer. What nice candy - hmmm, my favorite part of the season is the SLIGHT change in our temps, lol! It's still warm, but at least the humidity gives us a wee break - and I love seeing the kids all dressed up, giddy and bouncing with excitement to go T and Ting! Thanks for the chance - already a follower but *HI!*! Hugs!

Dee said...

Thanks Cheryl for the comment on my blog. Love your site, great blog candy. Halloween is a fun time of year, the kids get so excited. I think my favorite part is all the costumes, especially the little wee ones.

Anne C said...

Halloween is not as big here in Britain as it is in the states, but every year we have a halloween party at our Girls Brigade Company and I love coming up with a different theme and of course a different costume to amuse the girls, just to show that I am not stuffy all the time LOL. thanks for the chance to win some blog candy xx

MommaJess said...

I have two favorite things about Halloween. One is I am a horror movie fanatic and so I love that during the month of October there are tons and tons of awesomely bad slasher and horror films on. The other thing is I love costume shopping with my boys and seeing how excited they become about dressing up.

AnItA mArIe said...

Best Wishes,
Stacy
