Pure Joy / Birgit Kerr

The sun was beginning to set and cast a golden glow against the house. Kaylie went outside to twirl around. Her bright yellow dress gleamed in the sun; she radiated pure joy.

Awake - 2 Halloween Posters

Awake - the continuing saga of my Halloween outing with wonderwoman @ Six Flags Great Adventure. Smile
Awake title - AL Scratched
Journaling: Letter Gothic Line
Template by Anna Aspnes
Skull - personal stash
Black ppr., purple ppr. and fog from Fright Night by Kaye Winiecki & Studio Flergs

Awakening, a dramatic procession of the walking dead leading to the resurrection of Dr. Fright and the Deadman’s party.

When the clock strikes 6 p.m., the sun goes down and the ghouls come out. We watched as the park transformed from "thrills by day" to "chills by night" with The Awakening, a dramatic procession of the walking dead, a Thriller performance and the resurrection of Dr. Fright.

This guy was so good! He was my favorite! October 25, 2009

The Awakening (2 page layout)

click on images to enlarge.
Another page page documenting out trip to Great Adventure. The Awakening show at Six Flags Great Adventure is fabulous!

The wholesome wonder woman (Kaylie) was counting the days until she could return to Great Adventure’s Fright Fest. She wanted to see “The Awakening” show very badly. We arrived forty-five minutes early to reserve our spots. We were in the 2nd row and were able to see everything up close and personal. The music, the special effects, the smoke, the dancing, it was all perfect! We both loved the show and can’t wait to see it again. 5797
