da da da da....snap, snap!

We're creepy and we're cooky, mysterious and ooky...really, all-together spooky...the Adams family!

This week we have been decorating for Halloween around here and I thought it would be fun to take some spooky (okay, silly) photos of all of us.  The kids loved the chance to be goofy for the camera.  

I printed the photos off on regular white copy paper, which added to the vintage look that I had in mind.  Then our 5 year old got to "decorate" the photos with some fun Halloween details...oh, you should have heard the giggles!


I framed them in the frame from the recent Halloween release (CC-SHAPE-045-1).  I cut the frame out in dark brown cardstock and ran some black ink over the edges.  Next I mounted them on some foam core and stuck them to the wall using some removable sticky tack.  

Of course the project wasn't complete until I added cotton spider webs.  It was a fun project for us to do together as a family.  Try it with your little spooks!!
