This Way for Candy

I just finished making this sign for my front porch.  Oh, ya, I have candy in the house but I dare not open the bag until October 31. I cut all the shapes with the new Trick or Treat cartridge from Cricut. The arrow and "this way" are from Twinkle Toes.  The base is a sign that I picked up at M's and just splattered white paint on the black base.  This is project is for a  Wall Art challenge at Peachy Keen this week.  Check out the details at the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog, and be sure to link your project by 10/31 CST.
I love the grin on the devil.. he he

Close up of the Kids
Their faces are from the NEW PK-145 Piles of Smiles
(bunny's whiskers from PK-111 Here Kitty Kitty Face Assortment)
The children are cut at 3 in.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you can join the Wall Art Challenge :)

Oh my! This is soo cute! I love it! The embossing and the children in their costumes! Did I say too cute?!? Fantastic job! I'd love to know the materials you used. Is it semi weather resistant? Thanks for sharing!

Just paper- I have a large covered porch and live in Southern California so the weather is not a big problem. Sometimes I will coat projects with Krylon but that is more for dust protection.

Thanks Melissa! I too live in Southern California and thought its mostly sunny and windy, but rain or moisture could have a destructiveness to it...wondered if you used vinyl. I really can't get over how stinking cute that sign is!

awwwwwwww, it's super duper cute Melissa, love it, all the detail and that you splattered the white paint, looks like stars! I was going to cut out a bunch of kids in costumes for my banner to then decided not to, but yours are all just darling!! I bought the candy today, we used to get over 120 kids, I bought 5 bags and I think there is 4 left :( eekkkk, now that's scarier than the costumes I saw at my door tonight, lol love your sign...just had a great idea, decorate the back that says sry out of candy and the kids faces are all sad, lmbo that would be perfect, double duty :) hahahaha
