Masquerade Ball

A couple of years ago, I was in Vivian's Halloween Shadow Box swap. I never posted photos of the box I made, and decided to share them with you now. I did mine as a Marie Antoinette Masquerade Ball theme:I hung a crystal mini chandelier from the ceiling, she had lovely velvet drapes, glittered pumpkins, and a picture of herself (of coarse)!!

I decided she had to have a cake.....after all, it was Marie Antoinette. Have a wonderful Halloween.

Just thought I'd share a few more projects that are in the process of being completed.
