Let the Dia de los Muertos fun begin!!!

I made quite a few ATC's today, all inspired by Dia de los Muertos.

Para mi Hermano
thinking of my brother Jay who recently passed away ~ this card will be incorporated into an ofrenda to display in my classroom.  We run a total theme of Dia de los Muertos in my Art classes.

I love the 'cracks' in the corners - thanks to a Martha Stewart punch

through your grief and loss you will touch many and already have ... kids, especially in the US need a good rounded view of how there is an end to life ... OK I feel like I am stumbling with words ... the view sometimes that death is failure in this country is where I am coming from ... Jay will be looking down and smiling I am sure!
