Haunting Monsters Shadow Box!

Halloween is only a couple days away!!!!  Today I was given the okay to share a spooky shadow box I made for the first issue of Cutting Edge Magazine!  The second issue of the magazine will be coming out in a couple days! 

My husband and I met while we worked together at a family amusement park.  Towards the end of the season, we would get to dress up as Monsters, walk around the park, and entertain the guests.  Most kids loved us, but some of the younger ones would get scared by us - even if we were friendly and wanted to give them a hug!  :)  To display these memories, I decided to use Lori Whitlock's SVGs and make a shadow box my husband and I can enjoy during the Halloween season. 

Here are some close-ups so you can see all of the details better!

I love the peeking ghost I added to the picture!  It reminds me of the end of the Haunted House ride at Disney World where the ghost is riding with you.

The paper I used is from a digital kit, Trick or Treat Paper Pack by Sara Schmutz, available at Design House Digital.  DHD has super cute papers and you can get what you want right away - just purchase online, download and print!
