Dia de los Muertos Challenge

They say that Halloween is a night of mischief and mayhem. . . that certainly held true in both Chris' and my house to say the least! Now on to Dia de los Muertos! A night of remembering the ancestors and honoring those that have passed on this year. This one was a challenge that I've been wanting to do for a long time and was a perfect distraction from the Halloween chaos surrounding me! It's a miracle that it was finished in time! Chris Beck really out did herself this time and I'm so in awe of her painting!
