Are you a fan of scary movies? Unfortunately, I am not. I blame my aversion to thrills and chills on a childhood friend who made me watch Nightmare on Elm Street. For at least a year following this traumatic event, I made sure the porch light (which was just outside my bedroom) stayed on all night long. I guess I thought if Freddy Krueger were coming for me, at least I’d see him first!
While I may not be a fan of most Halloween villains, I do have a soft spot for Frankenstein. I mean, it’s not his fault he is the way is . . . he’s the result of a scientific experiment gone wrong. I think a lot of people feel this way because today just happens to be National Frankenstein Day! And with just two days until Halloween, it’s the perfect day to celebrate this lovable, misunderstood villain.
Luckily I didn’t have to look very far to find dear Frankie. It appears he’s a favorite among today’s top paper crafters. Just look what I found in our spooktacular September/October 2012 issue:
