A Monstrous Halloween Event

   Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. It is also a favorite of my son. Every year we make these little monsters and aliens out of these mix and match molds. My son loves mixing the jello and picking the monster parts. The hardest part is always waiting for the Jello to solidify. It's a very special occasion, and it was one of those time's when I saw some challenges and immediately knew that the photo was a fit.  Scrap Fit's Monster Mash workout gave me the perfect idea for the title.  I could easily visualize the photo of my son in the sketch over at Sketches for All's Halloween party.

   This page fell together quickly because I was so inspired. I chose to cut rectangular windows from the orange cardstock. I adhered Making Memories paper behind them. Then I added MM paint in green meadow around the edges of the rectangle and the photo. I doodled a whimsical border around the photo to help it stand out. I cut the title from my cricut as well as the Monster and the bat. The title font is Oh (photo) Shoot. I added google eyes to the monster and bat, while I used paint and stickles on the title. 3-d adhesive made them pop from the page, while sequins added some fun to the title.

 If you love Halloween as much as I do, check out the Halloween party going on over at Sketches for All. You won't regret's a great group with a lot of great challenges.
