I made these shrines for MaxParadise in the Shrine Swap. I chose her theme of Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead.  I used shrine kits and supplies from Alpha Stamps and Retro Cafe' Art Gallery along with some things pulled from my stash.

Here is the front and back of the main shrine.  If you look closely at the front you can see the brass pistol and mini bottles that I added.



Here are the two mini shrines I made to go along with it.

    Thanks for all the kind words! I am so addicted to making shrines of all kinds now!  I am actually having a really hard time not making shrines for my partners in every swap I am in....Well in actually I am not resisting too much, I am trying to find ways to make shrines that fit into each package LOL
