Children of the Corn

This was sooo much fun to work with!
Let's start with this great sketch from Sketchy Thursdays! I didn't have 3 pictures to work with so I decided to add a shaker box for the third spot. I used some corn that I had...umm..."borrowed"... from the corn pit. Actually, I think it was found in the kids' pockets and shoes when we got home. The fibers behind the shaker box were taken from a piece of fabric I used on a previous page. The "raffia" is strips of paper that I had crinkled up and inked myself. I added a few pieces of corn to the centers. The letters are Chocolate Chip from Basic Grey. The background piece in the center is DCWV. A little bit of tearing and inking on the photo mats...
I had so much fun!
The title was inspired by a challenge from Scrap Whispers. The challenge was to create a project using a title from a favorite scary movie. It's hard to think scary looking at these two cuties! But when I was flipping through the pictures, these jumped out at me immediately!
