15 - There's a monster at my door

For this challenge I was able to include plenty of EVIDENCE:

Book pages to make the "stones"
Metal in the chain holding the sign above the door
Moon decorating one of the booklet pages
Ric rac
"Something transparent" in the vellum I used to immitate the glass door.

When the door is opened all the photographs are revealed. You can see all the details on my blog.

Here is the link:

For the TESTIMONY I did two things. I wrote a poem which is on the sign at the top of the door. It reads:

There's a monster
(maybe more)
Scavenging at my front door

Just open the door
and you will see
how large and growly
he can be!

I also journaled about this particular day. I wrote the text on a card and placed it inside an envelope on the last page of the booklet

It reads:

Once upon a time there was a little boy called Nico. When Halloween came he was happy. His Mummy helped him dress up in his tiger costume which he really loved. They then drove to Cris xxxxxx’ house in Katy. Nico met all his friends there: Ceci, Juan, Esteban and many others and they spent all afternoon playing together.
Then evening came and they were all ready to go for a walk and “trick or treat” their neigbours. Would they really frighten everyone?
Nico picked up his buckets and off they went, but when he knocked at different houses this little tiger grew really shy, but really, really shy! He barely whispered “trick or treat” and barely whispered “thank you”.
That night he went home happy but quite sure it would be better to go out scaring people when he grew a little bigger.

OMGosh, Elaine! This is so, so creative! I just love how you made that door that opens to reveal the photos. Love your story too! The monsters and that tree are so wonderful, as are those bricks made out of the book paper!
