Happy Birthday and Halloween Pictures!

Hi there, I'm popping in with a card for this week's Wee Memories Challenge. It is sponsor by Jay Gee's Nook. I love Judith's style over at Jay Gee's Nook so I definitely wanted to play along this week.

My card actually uses several scraps of patterned paper and they were perfect for making a couple of easy banners, added a couple of buttons, a bit of twine and I have a birthday card ready to go.
Now...on to some Halloween pictures!  We had three separate sets of tricker or treaters this year:  Jonathon and Emma; Collin, Marcel, Logan and Chloe; Ryan and friends (there was a much larger group, but they came through too fast).  Don't you love Marcel's power ranger pose?
 We are very blessed that our niece, Olivia, the adorable little eskimo, lives in our neighborhood. We caught up with her towards the end of the night.  Marcel had to count his candy.  I think he made it to about 20 before he started eating it!
I love this picture of Marcel in the bottom right...oh so sweet!  And Mr. Luigi (Collin) I had to use eyeliner at the last minute for his mustache...we couldn't find the one that went with the costume...woops...
