    After a lot of late nights spent in the garage drawing and painting, it all came out Sunday afternoon! The kids and I had a great time with this and I must say, its attracting quite a bit of attention. We want to add more but not sure what right now. Thanks for looking!

    That's a hoot!

    I really admire all your hard work. I know it must have taken a while for you to put all of that together.

    Great Job! Did you cut these out of plywood ? I've always wanted to make some tombstones for the yard, but never wanted to mess with cutting them out of plywood. I did do some out of heavy cardboard for our halloween party but they kept falling over. You did Great!

    It looks fantastic!! I really want to do something like this with the Nightmare Before Christmas-- figure I can pretty much leave it up between Halloween and New Year's!!

    Any tips on doing this would be greatly appreciated-- did you use an overhead projector and trace the pix onto the plywood? :flower:
