{Kids Craft} Happy Halloween!

I was in my son's class yesterday to lead a Halloween craft with the kids. These are my samples of the haunted houses with dress-up ghosts! The houses use the Sizzix house and windows dies, and the ghosts are from Lawn Fawn's Booyah stamps and coordinating dies.

I made these really late the night before and was lucky to have my husband help me out by adhering the double-sided adhesive to all the house and roof pieces! I had already spent the entire day die cutting and stamping all the ghosts and their costumes. Phew!! I ran out of grey cardstock mid-prep so I want to give a special shoutout to Ardyth for driving to my house twice the day before, to deliver extra grey cardstock!

Of course, I have to share some of the kids' designs, too. Could that little mermaid be any cuter?! I love the bold colour choices and the random ghosts on the roof.

The school had a pumpkin carving contest and each class came up with a unique pumpkin design. They were so creative and fun to see! The big spider was done by my son's class and I hope it wins. ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Halloween!!
