Sweet Stamping Treats

For the hop today, I've created .......a layout for my daughter Annie Leigh.  During her senior year they were allowed to dress in costume for a Halloween celebration.  I have to confess tho..while trying to do this layout with Halloween papers and embellies it just was not working for me..She was just to pretty to put with all that black/orange/purple..She needed girly stuff so I hope no one is disappointed  here but I just liked this better and it does carry the Halloween theme.

I was surprised when she came home with this dress.  I thought it was going to be really difficult to find something that would work especially when she was trying to buy it in the fall. Now it doesn't have the accordion pleats but I still think it works really well. An added bonus came when we went outside to take the pictures and a small breeze came blowing by and slightly lifted her dress causing her to give that Marilyn pose. :)

I hope you enjoyed my contribution to the hop and if you are kind enough to leave me a comment I will see to it that you are in a drawing for some blog candy.  I will be using Random.Org to choose the winner.  Becoming a follower is not required but it sure makes me happy..:)

I am number 12 on the Day 2 list so hop on down to that list and click on number 13 to continue your journey through this fun hop.  Remember to visit all the stops and leave some kind increases your chances at winning some fun goodies and don't forget our grand prize!  :)
