Here is Celina's interpretation of the movie poster....

Celina Matthews -Jack Obsessed

Hi, Shazza!
Here is my submission for December with the Nightmare Before Christmas movie poster inspiration. I love the Nightmare Before Christmas but my love for the movie does not compare to my eldest daughter's love for Jack Skellington, so I decided to focus my page on her obsession for Jack. Her bed had Jack sheets on it, she has numeruos t-shirts and hoodies of Jack, and she owns so many Jack odds and ends! Here are just of few photos of her and her Jack stuff. Here is how I completed the extra criteria:
1. Pumpkins - I used my cricut expression to cut out some fun little pumpkins with different faces.
2. Large moon - I cut a yellow circle out with my cricut and inked it with Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed Distress Inks.
3. Jack Skellington - I printed out a photo of Jack and cut him out.
4. Spooky tree - I cut out a spooky tree using my cricut in a gray and inked it with Black Soot Distress Ink.
5. Fence - I used my cricut to cut out these little fence pieces so that I connect them to make a long fence border.
6. Yellow/Purple colors - I used the purple cardstock to mat the photos and yellow cardstock for the moon.
7. Large Swirl - I free-handed the swirly mountain found on the poster out of gray cardstock and inked it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
I really had fun with this one. This topic was just my style! Can't wait to see what everyone else does with it!
