This activity has been one my family has REALLY enjoyed, especially when my girls were a little younger than they are now ;-D It is always so much fun to hear the laughter as they tell their get away stories and it just feels good to bring this little "tradition" to other families.
Here at work I started asking the others if they had ever "Boo'ed" their neighbors. They gave me the funniest look when I asked this question. I then realized that everyone but Cathy had no clue what I was talking about! Thank you for sharing your poem with us Cathy (I couldn't find mine - insert pink cheeks here).
The Phantom Ghost has come to call, and left some goodies for one and all.
The Treats that came with this special note, are yours to keep, enjoy them both.
The fun comes when friends like you, will copy this and make it two.
Then others here among our friends, will give warm puzzles that will not end.
We'll have smiles upon our face, no one will know who boo'ed whose place.
Just one short day to work your fun, or a big zap will strike, so run!
And don't forget a nifty treat, like something cute or something sweet.
Please join the fun, let's really bear it, and spread some boos and a kind spirit.
So here is what you do:
- Make two fun "ghostly" tags,
- Make two copies of the attached BOO! poem and stamp some fun images around the corners: Download Boo Poem
- Fill two bags with a couple of treats,
- Place a copy of the BOO! poem in each bag,
- Secretly deliver to two neighbors or friends,
- Watch the excitement grow :-D
Above are just a couple of close-ups to help you replicate this design if you choose. I had so much fun masking, aging, texturizing... I hope to share the how-to's for all these fabulous techniques soon :-D
