Soul Journey Halloween Blog Style

10/29 @1:41 am ... and the winners are:

Chris @ Prism Trail


Melissa @ Holiday Queen

10/28/08 @ 8:08 pm ... I've been slow on the uptake and haven't pulled the names for the drawing, so I only think it's fair to toss in all the comments (that worked in the word "wicked" to be elligible) received until right now ... winner(s) will be announced soon!

Great! you've made it ... and just in time to get on the Boo Bus Express to the Halloween Fair!

It shouldn't take us long to get out to the farm, so relax and enjoy the ride.

Look! it's Ms. Goat ... she says we're almost there!

Here we are ...

It really is a lovely day ... where should we start? the Pumpkin patch? OK ...

there are plenty to choose from ... we should grab a few extra for the Pumpkin Cannon!

WOW! that was seriously crazy.
I'd like to rest my feet for a minute or two. Would you care to see:

That little ghost sure was amazing ... I had no idea he'd know how to tap dance!
Looks like the next show is at:

I'd rather not wait, if you don't mind.
What is Malificent doing up on the roof?!? I hope she doesn't fall.

Shall we head on over to Madama Furtunata's place? I have been sooooo looking forward to seeing her.

It seems she has a new pet ... don't get too close, this emu looks a bit possessed.

How nice, there aren't any lines. Did you remember to bring a gift? That sounds perfect!

Madame Fortunata was in an extra good mood today ... it's not often she invites us to go along with her to a party!

... and a Soul Journal Halloween Blog Party at that ...

Alright everyone, let's pile back onto the Boo Bus Express for Collage Diva's

Click the image above to visit Kathryn Party and all the guests that are attending

I hope you've enjoyed your visit ... you're welcome back anytime.

Special Notes:

All paper toys (the Boo Bus, the Ghost Show & Madame Fortunata's) are free downloads from the Toymaker's Halloween Section - go check out the plethora of cool paper toys she's made available: HERE

All photographs were taken by me (on our recent homeschoolers trip to Hunsader Farms).

ps - if you've made it this far, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn that I do have a giveaway for this post ... shhhh! it's a secret (not really, but it is a mystery prize). If you would like to be included in the drawing, please be sure to leave a comment & work the word "wicked" in there somewhere ... I've been on a dorky "wicked cool" kick lately and I am thinking if I see the word enough, I just might let it go. :)

All eligible comments posted by 6:00 pm EST tomorrow (Monday, October 27th) will be entered.

Malificent looks wicked standing on top of the barn roof. She must have had a wicked-brew of a night hanging out with the vampires and their wicked witchy sisters.
I love your pics and all the info. Great work!!

Love your party page and the lovely story and bus ride.

What a wickedly wonderful page! I love the Florida seasonal display - I guess I'll have to revise my thoughts on the four Florida seasons (hot, hurricane, love bug, and tourist)to five (3rd Eye Muse's halloween, hot, hurricane, love bug, and tourist). *yes, I live here too..;-) Great page!

I'm late, but I just stopped by from Vanessa's party. I am so impressed with all you are doing. I think I got overwhelmed just with the Halloween Party.

I'm liking your red umbrella piece, too.

KathrynAntyr said...

That professor pumpkin boo bus is so wicked cool! I love that those paper toys are available as a free download - that is wicked good news!

I'm having a wicked time these days with all of these parties.

Thanks again for the leads on other wicked cool things to do. I'll definitely let you know if you've tempted me to join in on the fun.

I'm still thinking of making some of those day of the dead skulls as you did.

Thanks for playing you are a great blog friend!

This was the most wickedly wicked post of wickedness I have ever read! Wicked to the bone I should say...just mind blowing wicked.

3rdEyeMuse said...

MJ said...

That was one wicked school bus! I kept hoping to see it in all the photos! You had a lot of fun pulling this together! Happy Halloween!

Thank you so much for my giveaway gifties! I love them. That charm is really cool. I've read about the black and white swap and it sounded like great fun. If I weren't so slammed with my multi-tasking disorder!, I would join that one.

I love my gifts!
