Halloween isn't just for kids, and here is proof!
|Halloween Friends gather at Ink Paper Rubber|
Our local stamp store, Ink Paper Rubber was the location of a party October 31st held for some scary "Older Kids". Chili and spooky snacks were on the menu, including Punch with floating eyeballs, edible mandibles, and other delicious and creepy fare.

A frightfully good time was had by all! The award for Best Costume went to Mary Kay Dorrell who dressed as shown below. Can you guess what she was?
|Too cute for words!|
Other costumes included a Peacock, Baboon, and a Witch.

The highlight of the party was "Creepy Craft Wars".
The contestants were put into teams of two, and were charged with creating a Christmas ornament made strictly out of recycled materials.
A ski slope with snowmen made of cotton balls, skiing on toothpicks was chosen as the winner, and other entries were a bird house made from a toilet tissue roll, a Christmas tag made from cardboard, a crafty table, and a hand-beaded decorative ornament, all with the emphasis on having FUN!

The best part was getting together and having some old fashioned fun!
Thank you to Jen and Manna for putting on this fun-filled spooky evening!

We all had a great time!
Who says Halloween has to be just for the kiddies???
