Happy Halloween to the Kidlittes!

I love to make personalized cards for my grandnephews and grandnieces by using photos of them on their cards.  Today, I'm sharing the cards I made them for Halloween this year.
I usually look into the Snapfish or Facebook albums my nieces load their photos into to find the photos I will use.  This super fun pic of 4 year old James (see his head in the cauldron with the pumpkins?)  was taken recently on their visit to Quebec for his great grandmothers birthday.  I just framed the photo in black and terracotta and added a sentiment from Peek a Boo Sentiments by Waltzingmouse.
For James' sister, 1 1/2 year old Madelyn,  I used a cute photo of her from the same trip to Quebec and added a hand made witches hat - with another sentiment from Peek a Boo Sentiments.
Here is 5 year old Landon -  but he's younger than that in this photo - I couldn't find a newer one that fit for Halloween.  I thought this sentiment, a combination of two stamps from Ocean Bound by Waltzingmouse, worked perfectly with the pirate mask!  The bat stamp is from Halloween Party.
And last, but not least - here is 3 year old Mila, Landon's sister.  I added a stamped and die cut witches hat and pumpkin from Tim Holtz Crazy Things stamp and die sets.  This is a photo from when they went apple picking this fall.
By pumpkins fat
and witches lean
by coal black cats
with eyes of green
by all the magic
ever seen
I wish you luck this 
(a sentiment stamp from WMS - Cicely at Halloween)

Tee hee - love how you've incorporated the family photographs into your Halloween cards, Julia... the one being stirred into the cauldron is my absolute favourite!!

Oh My!! What a nifty idea - I laughed out loud when I realized one of the kids was a pumpkin in the caldron! WOW!
Very creative - thanks for the inspiration!

The witch in the first card is really scary (which I love) and the other cards are just so cute, I bet they all adore these! Hugs, Anne xx
