This year Suzzane will also be offering prizes for the second and third place winners. The second place winner will receive 4 witch hats and a candy-filled cookie cauldron, and the third place winner will receive 2 witch hats and a candy-filled cookie cauldron. Thank you Suzzane for your enthusiasm and generosity!
