Does anyone every remember a saying from way back when that said "Kilroy was here?" My mom use to talk about it and how it involved a bald headed guy with a long nose looking over a wall.

I went on a web search after I created my card and found out this dates back to WWII and was a type of graffiti and you thought graffiti was a modern thing. :)

I designed this Frankenstein goodie box a few weeks ago even before the hop was scheduled so when I saw Frankenstein Friday and I had to sign up. This is a simple but cute box that will hold a lot of goodies. Yum! I want to make two more so that each of my children have one on Halloween with some treats (or maybe tricks) from me. 
 On both my projects I broke into my chalkboard paper stack so you could write a special message in colored chalk on the card and the box.

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is Lucy's blog. Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on November 9, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
