BOO! & a Giveaway!

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
We had a 4 day Fall break from School so we
headed to Vegas to see my oldest son who was moving
and then we made plans to check out the AWESOME
Gilcrease Orchard that's there! I LOVE their Apple Cider!
It's the Best Apple Cider EVAH! They have just 3 Ingredients -
3 types of apples! THAT's IT! They always sell out so quickly
because everyone just loves it.... It's $5 for a 1/2 gal.! Which is
pricey to some, but with only 3 ingredients, how could you NOT pay
good money for it? :) We also tried their Yummy Freshly made donuts -
They use a fabulous Apple Cider Spread --- :)

The place is packed from the time they open at 7am til the time they close at 2pm - So we got their first thing in the AM to enjoy the goodies -
walk around, cuz they had a corn maze and you can pick
your own veggies - they offer a cute wheelbarrow to tote your veggies in before you pay for them... It really is a great place tucked away in Las Vegas... :) We also did some Craft shopping - :) It totally made for a great weekend! Of course it's Monday & I'm back to work! ;)

I thought I would do a Halloween Giveaway!!!
Just a little something for my AWESOME Followers!

First I want to share the Halloween Wreath 
I made this year for my front door!

I used Orange & Black Burlap from Wal-mart - Cut up in 5" x 5"
square pieces
a 12" White Foam Wreath (Wal-mart)
a box of corsage pins (Wal-mart)
Pumpkin, Boo, Cat, Balls are all elements I got at Michael's

I don't think my Photo was the best this time around - but the Wreath looks so full and the mixture of Orange & Black look wonderful! :)

Soooo --- Now for my giveaway - I'm going to giveaway this AWESOME Stamp set

The set is called: Fall Banner Sentiments 
By: My Craft Spot (No Longer in Business)

I actually have 2 of these sets and didn't know it until
I went to organize my stamps from MCS
I did take it out of the package - So there is no Packaging
but it's still on with it's clear base - I NEVER used it

Like I said I have 2 of these and didn't realize it -
I don't need 2 of them, so I thought someone
out there might enjoy this wonderful Stamp set

So, if you're interested in winning this great set -
Please leave a comment below and a way to get a hold of you


I will PICK a Winner on THURSDAY, OCT. 20th!!!

This is only for my U.S.A Friends - So sorry to everyone else
outside the U.S. - I just wanted to give them away and get them sent
Before Halloween, so they have a chance to use them! :)

Thanks so Much for stopping by!

Sounds like you guys had a great time and that cider sounds yummy! Love your wreath. I've been seeing lots of them on FB especially in my Dollar Tree groups. I'm just not brave enough to try them. LOL Thanks for the chance to win a stamp set from MCS. I was saddened when they went out of business. You can find me on FB at Barbara's Spot of Sanity.

First of all, your wreath is wonderful! It definitely screams Halloween! It sounds like your weekend was so much fun. I'm glad you were able to spend quality time with your family, making memories. That stamp set has some really great sayings on it and I like that it is for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Some of my absolute favorite stamp sets are from My Craft Spot and I was SO sad when Kimberly decided to close her shop. I always felt like her stamps were so classy and a step above so many others. How generous of you to bless one of your followers with it! Have a great day!

Awesome wreath you made! I'm going to try my luck at making one of these at some point. Our family loves cider - we have an apple orchard that makes it to sell at our annual Swappin Meet. Good stuff.
