I had asked her if she knew what sugar skulls were for and she had said no. So for those of you who also don't know I will give you a tiny taste of this awesome tradition. Basically, sugar skulls are made on Dia de los Muertos (aka Nov 1&2) for the deceased. The skulls are called sugar skulls because they are made of sugar, obviously. How I see it is that they're pretty much celebrating the people who have passed on and their lives. You guys should really read this... It will do a much better job of explaining than I do.
So on I labored, first figuring out the silhouette.
I really liked the silhouette on the right, but thought a literal interpretation may be better.
She liked both. Sooooo.... Being awesome like I am I combined them.

|This one was a no. Really.|
I'm kind of curious of how many other people have a love for elephants... You should share your love!
