A Freaker's Free-for-All

That's just fun to say.  "Freaker's Free-for-All"  Try it! Anyway, that's the theme of this week's Haunted Design House Macabre Monday challenge. I originally had a card all planned out...I had the images bought, the paper and layout in my mind...  Then everything changed.  

A few weeks ago we had a bonfire at a friend's house.  One of the things we decided to burn was a giant cardboard tube/can.  The can was making some cool designs in the flames, so my friend Kellee and I decided to take some pictures with our phones.  Some of the pictures turned out awesome...sparks flying, flames leaping.  On Friday, Kellee showed me one of the pictures from her phone...and it freaked me out.  I decided this picture MUST be the focus of my project.


I call this "Always Watching". Do you see the face?  To me it looks like a child....and there are some very specific reasons that ghost children  kind of freak me out right now, but I'm not going to get into that.  It's just enough to say....it's creepy for me.  Here's the original picture.


I hope this gave a few chills (but not too many!) and I hope you all have a wonderful week!
