Happy Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the 1st Halloween Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Tonya's blog! Here is the beginning of the hop if you are just joining us. You will want to start at Sarabeth's blog!

When I think about Halloween, the first thing I think of is candy! My favorite candy is Reese's Peanut Butter cups, yum!

Your first way to get entries into my blog candy giveaway is to tell me your favorite candy (1 entry), link a layout or project that uses candy in it for (3 entries).

In preparing for Halloween, we always visit the pumpkin patch. Here is a home decor item that I created and haven't posted yet. I took a cork board tile and covered it in cloth. Then I added ribbon and embellishements and have a reuseable home decor item that can change with the holidays. Next I think of decorations! Since I am currently living with my in-laws I can't show you my decorations, but here are some of theirs! For another entry into the drawing link a picture of a decoration around your house to the comment section of this post. (2 entries)
Finally, I think of costumes when it comes to Halloween! Create a layout showing off some favorite Halloween costumes! (3 entries)

Finally, if you become a new followerer during this hop, you can receive (2 more entries for my blog candy) If you become a follower on Scrap That Poetry's site, you recieve (5 entries).

Here is my blog candy! Comment on this post with your entries for my blog candy. You can do one or all of the ways to win throughout the hop! I will put your number of entries in a hat and pull a name on November 2nd. Stop back to see if you are the winner! I will be posting more things throughout the weekend.

You are now ready to hop over to your next stop at Kristal's blog. Thanks for hopping by and I hope you stop back again!

I love peanut butter cups too and now they are available in some UK stores :D
I love the decor idea you posted, anything that can be recycled for every season is good for me.
