Zombie Run Layered Shadow Box

The weekend before Memorial Day my husband and I ran in the Zombie Run together.  For those of you who don't know us personally I gotta tell you this was something special because my husband hates to run.  Fortunately for him I was 'racing' with an injured knee so I didn't really run myself - except in those moments where you had to make it through the communities of zombies if you wanted to survive.

When we started the race we each had four flags and before we were done we had none.  Funny thing about this was that my husband lost most of his during the first pack of zombies we hit.  But as we traveled through the course everyone loved him so much that they would give him a flag.  So he'd lose a flag, gain a flag. Lose a flag, gain a flag - until there were no more to gain.  Lose all your flags (like we did) and you're "infected".  Keep them all and you're a "survivor".

At one point during the race he even had one of the zombie girls tell him that if he gave her a hug she wouldn't take his flag.  So what did he do you ask?

He stretched out his arms, picked her up and carried her through the mud muddle, then set her back down and walked on.  It was a lot of fun and even with my injury I was still able to traverse some of the obstacles.

And now on to today's PDE Linky Party..........This week it's all about layers.  For my project I used this great zombie file from Miss Kate Cuttables - pop dotted it two dots deep so as to add some great dimension.  The Zombie hands are from Cricut's Frightful Affair.  Some of these I pop dotted and others I just used glue dots. And then of course there's the picture of my husband coming out of his cargo net crawl along with his racing bib and ribbon.  Take a look at the close up of his ribbon though.  Notice what the medal says.........................

Yep, Survivor.  What the heck?  I guess they really wanted to make sure he survived.  LOL

And so now that you've seen my project it's your turn.  All you have to do is make a project with layers and you're half way there.  After all you still have to link up to play along.  And if you need more inspiration first check out the other layered projects our team created to share with you.  I promise you won't be disappointed.
