Boo!

So in our neighborhood every year there is a "boo'ing" that goes on. From house to house you see the signs go up every few days as more houses get hit. So I decided to be the initiator this year. So today I went over to Joann's, where all the Halloween loot is currently 50% off! I picked up a couples of small metal bags, some skull candles, gummy body parts (like bloody finger, ears, noses....gross!), small Styrofoam headstones, and a "bone cutter" knife, which is a pumpkin cutter with a bone shaped handle. Then I went and got a few more candies at the grocery.

I got the clip art from this website. I just enlarged the clip art to "fit the page" when printing in PSE. And then I just copied the poem from this page and used a spooky font. I think they turned out pretty cute. I had to photo them in the house since we are having one of our notorious windy Oct. days today. Anyway, they are cuter then they look in these photos!

Does your neighborhood do anything like this? If not you should be the initiator and get to working on your Boo's too! :)

Our neighborhood does something similar to this....but the goodies aren't quite as "cutely" presented! Awesome little basket!
