Campfire Dinners

My hubby is a Scout leader and they recently learned to make camp fire dinners.  They are all kinds of yummy goodness wrapped in foil and then cooked on the fire.  They are great because you can make them ahead of time and they just cook them when you get the the camp site.  When mine is finished cooking I usually just cut it open and eat it.  My sister however, decided to make her dinner more fun.  She used the scissors to cut "teeth" in the opening thus creating a monster.  When I saw this I just had to get the WIGGLY EYES to complete the look.  And so a layout was born.
I used a grass border and inverted it at the bottom then welded it to a square to make the scary teeth background.  I used Don Juan and Gypsy fonts. 
The camp fire is from Camp Out and I put stickles to make it glow.  The monster is from Mini Monsters.  I'm going to add journeling to the bottom left corner....someday.
Here is a closer look...yummy right? 
Until next time, keep it creative, even with dinner.
