Not all tombstones in a graveyard are old and decrepit. I made this stone to go along with a new prop and storyline I am using for my yard haunt this year. I live on a street called Saintsbury and the houses in this area were all built n the 80's. I decided I would make the Saintsburys, an ill-fated couple who died on their wedding day on Nov 2nd, 1989 in a horrific car accident. I am going to have the couple incorporated into this scene but that will come later. Here are some pics of their dual headstone pre and post paint.

Nicely done. Had a spine tingle moment when I opened this thread and saw the pic of your tombstone. At that moment I was listening to a track off the Marshall Tucker Band album "Together Forever".

very nice I see, Jacob is into older women lol
Haha! You noticed that, eh? :) Yeah, I did that on purpose. I am 3 years older than my hubby. Our anniversary is also Nov 2nd. I didn't think he'd like using our dates/ages on a tombstone so I went with these instead. Also, Nov 2nd has the added bonus of being the Day of the Dead! (Our anniversary is Nov 3rd).

Wow, I take that as a high compliment indeed. Anytime your prop can have that effect, it's a very good thing. :) Thank you so much! Of course, the music played a part too.....How freaky was that??!

Ha! Yes, it is a biggie. I think it's almost 5 feet wide. It's going to hide the mechanism where my bride and groom are going to be.....more pics to come. Stay tuned!
