Some Halloween photos, Blog Awards and a ODBD card!!!

Happy TGIF!!!

Oh my - I have so much to show and tell!!! Hope you can make it to the end????

First I want to show you a *Holiday* card I made for the Mojo111 Sketch. It came together very quickly. This layout is perfect if you need to make lots of cards!!!

First I added the sparkly DP from S.E.I and it's called *Frosty the Snowflake* - it's available at the ODBD Store. Next I scored the lines on the side. Then I added the Bible Verse from the new ODBD Set - Luke 2:11.

My next step was to punch out the *Snowflake*. I inked it in the Glue Pad and bedazzled it with Glitter. At last I added the Silver Pearls.

Make sure you stop by the ODBD Blog today to find out *who* won the entire November Release!?!?!

Finally......I would like to share some of my favorite *Halloween* photos from my girls....I know I'm so behind...!!!

We had a wonderful time trick or treating this year. Some of our neighbors did *hay rides* -which came in handy after awhile...when our little Miriam ran out of steam walking!!! The weather was perfect too and afterwards we hung out with some of our neighborhood friends.

All three of my girls decided to be *Witches* this year.....Rebecca my middle daughter decided to go the *Gothic* route....which totally surprised me, because she is such a girly girl - LOL!!! She is a blondy and we sprayed some of her her looked really cool, but you can't really see it really good in the photos. I l.o.v.e the last photo of my oldest daughter Sarah....she put on her *mean* witch face!!!

Thank you so much for stickin' with me to the end!!! I hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I did??? Don't the girls look AWESOME in their costumes???

Have a wonderful weekend and if you can.... I hope you'll come back tomorrow for the OCC Challenge?!?

Until then.....

~Hugs Silke~
