Could It Get Any Easier?

Thanks to a discussion with my DS while on the way to school this morning, I’ve got Halloween on my mind.  He can’t decide what what he wants to be this year.

When he got in the car he’d decided he wanted to be something gross…something creepy…something “that bleeds real blood” (quote unquote).  Thirty seconds later he wanted to be a ninja.  Less than a minute later he wanted to be Luigi (of the famed brotherly pair, Mario and Luigi).  

Now I know from past experience that this is a conversation we’ll have over and over and over from now until the end of September when I finally impose a deadline and require his final decision. 

And then it dawned on me…Halloween’s going to be here in about a minute. 

Crap.  Crap squared.  Crap cubed.  Crap to the nth degree.

Once Halloween arrives it’s a downhill hundred-mile-an-hour race to Christmas.

Crap.  Crap squared.  Crap cubed.  Crap to the nth degree.

I’m SOOOOOO not ready for this.

But I suppose I’d better start getting ready.  So in honor of one of my favorite holidays, here’s a quick and easy Frankenstein face for you…perfect for your scrapbooks and Halloween party invites. 

Frankie Goes to Hollywood

Frankie Goes to Hollywood

It’s so easy to do — the bottom layer is cut from green cardstock, and the black shadow is cut and applied right on top.  The best part about the black shadow is it comes off the cutting mat in a single piece with the exception of the little divet at the top of Frankie’s chin. 

Here’s a zip file containing the svg files for both the green layer, the black shadow, and a scut file to cut both pieces.  As I’ve sized it, you’ll get a head that’s about 3.5″Wx5.75″H.  Of course, you can resize it — just make sure you check the box for Keep Proportions.

Happy Halloween Cricut-ing!!!
