Weekend Giveaway – Halloween Costumes – Winners!

Well, first and foremost I would like to thank our friends over at Vintage Street Market for a great week!   The Ribbonistas had such fun creating with your products!  Now, of course, I wanted to end this week with a giveaway….but I also wanted to have a bit of fun with it.  So, I thought we’d talk a little Halloween.  🙂

For those of us with little ones, Halloween is all about the costume….errr or the trick or treating in the costume!   Which brings me to this weekend’s giveaway.  Answer one or both of the following questions and enter to win the prize pack pictured below!

The Questions:

  • What are the little ones in your life dressing up as this year?
  • When was the last time you dressed up for Halloween?  What was the costume?

And in case y’all are wondering, my little dude will be an angry bird this year…the red one to be exact.  And, boy, is he excited!   My last costume was last year: a glittery witch.  Cause…you know…everything’s better with glitter…according to this Ribbon Lady anyway!   😉

The Prize:

Vintage Street Market’s Family Fun Paper Kit


Vintage Street Market’s “Numbers” Tinted Tape
