Calendar Girls--Trick or Treat

Welcome to another round with the Calendar Girls!

Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers. 

This month hostess is our Miss October—Tami.  She gave us a Halloween theme with some additional requirements:

Layers: At least three layers somewhere on the card, one layer being a designer paper--Check

Colors: Somewhere on your card please use the color purple--

Embellishments: Two for sure - and one needs to be a glitter product--

Blog Post: Please share what your favorite candy is to receive in your trick-or-treat bag and if you participate in this holiday, please include what fun things do you like to do for Halloween--

I really like to decorate for Halloween and my favorite candy is a plain Hershey bar.  I remember when I went Trick or Treating, we received regular size candy bars—not the small snack size.  Yes, I am old………………………
