Halloween Party and GIVEAWAY

Update...Monday, October 20th

Vanessa's A Fanciful Twist Halloween Party is simply delightful! There are wonderful parties happening everywhere. Many, I haven't had a chance to visit yet, but I hope to. (Vanessa is planning to keep the blog list of partiers up until the day after Halloween.)

Right now, though, I want to announce the winner of my giveaway...
Ele, A Bit of Pink Heaven will be receiving the Scaredy Cat Mini Quilt.

Thank you, Ele, and everyone who stopped by, for adding so much fun to the party!

This way to the PARTY!!!!!

That's right, just follow the others...

What's that? They're all going in different directions?!

It's okay, don't worry, you can follow the jack-o-lanterns...'ve found it, you're HERE!


Come in...other guests have already arrived.

Shall we check out some of the costumes?



Show offs!

Forget something?

You too? Maybe the two of you should get together...

What do you mean it's not a costume?



OK, this is getting out of hand!

Why don't I show you where to find the food and drink?

Now, I'd much rather craft and make art or play on the computer than spend time in the kitchen, so instead of just offering you candy corn...

or smelly cheese,

I've asked for help with the party refreshments...
from the professionals!

And they've certainly done what they do best!

Looks like one of the guests is giving the treats
a "fanta-bulous!" rating...

Rather dance? OK, "walk this way"...

Oh, LOOK! It's a full moon!

Perfect for trick or treating! How about a refresher course?

Let's go ask Alice...

"It's easy...knock on the door and shout..."

Ready? Let's go!

Go on, you know what to do...
Trick or treat!

Oooooo, you're quite good! Isn't this fun? On to the next house!

Relax, it's the neighbor's cat!

Yes, this one IS a little spookier, isn't it?

You say you want to skip that house? OK, that's fine...

This next one doesn't look at all scary!!!

Trick or treat!!!

(from behind the door we hear the sound of chattering teeth and then......."EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKK!!!")

It's Master Scaredy Cat...poor little fella, it looks like we've scared HIM!

Oh my, we're very sorry!

I think I'll stay here with Master Scaredy Cat until he settles down some. You all go on to the other parties...I'll catch up with you later.

But, wait...

PLEASE, before you go, be sure to enter for a chance to win
the original design:), one-of-a-kind:), created especially for this occasion:),
Mini Quilt Rendition of the Scaredy Cat Place...

(appx. size is 9"x9")

Just leave a comment on this post before 10 pm Central Time on Mon., Oct. 20th. You don't have to be a blogger to enter...just let me know how to contact you if you're the winner.

I'm home earlier than I thought I would be and am thinking a nap is in order, but I just couldn't resist stopping by a few parties before the pillows! thanks for the super wonderful encouraging words on Kitty! coming from a master thread goddess such as yourself has made me giddy. :)
