Transparent Drop shadow

This is my first post, as I can usually find what I need to know with a quick search, and I feel like I'm trying to reinvent the wheel over what should be an extremely simple process.  All I want to do is make the drop shadow from a data frame appear transparent.  Is there any way to do this???  I can't believe that I couldn't find where anyone else had asked this before.

What I'm really trying to do is make some inset maps to zoom into some areas of interest, and in Layout view the shadows just appear like a solid grey box, blocking out that miniscule amount of data under the shadow. 

Any help would be much appreciated!  I'm using ArcMap 10.0

Kurt, simply turn off the drop shadow under the frame properties.
