Too Cute To Spook

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind. ~Dr. Seuss
Remember the photo booths from the 60s. Here I am with my best friend Monica. 1963? We were 10. ( And friends forever!)I made this collage with some quilt wrapping paper scraps, and other paper scraps, layered onto a piece of a game board.
 
The stars were from a purchased wreath that had seen better days. The photo had been scanned and printed onto copy paper, I think I would have had better results printing onto cardstock, but I was trying to use up "stuff" from the "stash". Notice the stamped spiders, from one of the Mini Inkadinkado sets. There are some punch out diecuts from "Authentique". I finished the collage with a layer of bees wax. Always and adventure.
 
Still studying the rat names.......will announce my prize winner soon! ( If you are like me you are desperately trying to keep posting, and commenting, crafting, creating and still carry on your real life! LOL and having fun, of course!)
