Playing  Catch-up

Good afternoon!
I am posting a few crafts I had made in the last few weeks.
The first one: I used Cricut vinyl to create a Skeleton Day shirt for myself and my daughter. 
A couple weeks ago the school had Storybook Parade. The kids choose a character from heir favorite book and dress-up like the character on parade day. The kids march along the halls and into the cafeteria for everyone to see them dressed up as their character and showing their favorite book. That was their dress-up day. This coming Friday is Halloween and the school will be learning all about skeletons (Skeleton Day). 
Here is the tag I made for my daughter. It was to go with her Storybook Parade costume. 

Below is one side of a posterboard I have been working on. The school has an annual fundraiser with Boosterthon called FUNRUN. We cheer on the kids as they do their laps around the track to earn money per pledge. Below is the posterboard I am working on.....

I made a wreath for my husband. He picked out the shapes and I put it together. First I wrapped a 12 inch foam wreath. Next I cut shapes from the Cricut cartridge Yee-haw,Camping Critters and Old West. 



I found a hollow glass block at Hobby Lobby and decorated it with Cricut vinyl. The shapes are from Create a Critter 2. I filled the glass with plastic pumpkins and acorns I found in the dollar bin at Target (they were actually $3 each). 


I just finished these decorated clothespins. The shapes are from Create a Critter. I made  6 sets of 3 for the kids to take to their teachers for Halloween. Below is a picture of one of the sets.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!:0)
