Happy Halloween!


Here I am, cramming the last of the Halloween preparations and projects in at the last minute.  When will I learn?!  So I must apologize, because this is going to be a super fast post with not a lot of detail...it's getting late and I still have a few things to check off of my list!  But I had to share before the day was over.  Here's a sweet little Halloween album that I made to resemble vintage Halloween flashcards:






I created the "flashcards" using Microsoft Word, then printed them out on cream cardstock and rounded all corners.  I left some blank to I could add more photos, but others were stamped with the sweet vintage images of Waltzingmouse Stamps, like the witch, above. 

And the glue has barely dried on these little treats.  Something without all the sugar for my daughter's second grade class:



Yes, I had to make just under 30 of these bookmarks!  But I kept the design simple and I managed to get them all done without too much trauma.  Stamps are Papertrey Ink, with the exception of the polka dot stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps


Whew!  I'm off to wrap up a few more things.  I think the eyeball cookies are finally set up and are ready for their little glassine bags. Have a great day and stay safe, dry and warm tonight!

That album is AWESOME!! I love the flash card idea!!! And bookmarks are such a great way to give the kids a treat without adding to the sugar stockpile they'll have at the end of the night. Love it all!
