Halloween craft for the kids!

Here is the craft I created for my son's fourth grade Halloween party.  I took two pieces of wood and attached both of them with duct tape.  Then I painted both sides with black paint.  Sanded both sides to give it a rustic look.  I cut lined writing paper for the kids to write "Happy Halloween, 2110"  I took pictures of the students at an earlier date, then printed them out onto white paper in black and white.
I cut a small square piece of gauze for them to drape the little photo album.  This gives it a spooky ghostlike affect.  I brought in containers full of old buttons, beads, and lace for the students to personalize their Halloween display!

Cat Therapy!

My cat, Ginger, keeps me company when the kids go off to school.  He loves to watch me create!  I spend some quiet time with him everyday.   Cat Therapy!
