I've always been two things, a firm believer that love can continue even after death and an opponent of all things pink and frou-frou. So when making this shrine I decided to take my belief in the first and work it into a concept while trying to stick to my guns about the latter.



I actually had no idea there was a challenge on until this past Saturday, when I happened to see Audio's project on her blog. So, thanks Audio. Cheesy



My matchbox was made from cardstock and measures in at 2x3x1. I had a bunch of wee blank matchboxes on hand, but no vials that were small enough to fit inside. I sculpted the heart and skeletal arms from air dry clay.



Secret number one rests inside the vial...



Oh, a small tab... Secret number two must be behind it...



A wee portrait of a happy, muchly deceased, couple. Smiley

Maybe I just have a similar aversion to pink and frou-frou, but I think yours is the most romantic one here! And I really like the secret hidden behind the secret. A decoy secret!
