Enter if you dare


I love to invent and tell  spooky,  mystical beautiful stories. 
Now is just the right time for it.
It's an old wooden shadox box with some spooky 3D elements.

  - Home is where you hang your broom -

a buckeye :-)


 I hope you like this Halloween inspiration
from an old witches' room.
It's my favourite in this Halloween season.

Unique bond for Scrap FX

wusstest ihr eigentlich, dass unsere Claudia - Von Pappe 2
nicht nur ein Kreativwunder ist , sondern 
auch mit Worten zaubern kann???
mich hat sie heute mit ihren spukigen Gedichtzeilen zu diesem
Projekt inspiriert
fragt sie doch mal, vielleicht traut sie sich und zeigt sie euch auf ihrem Blog!
 Update - Erlaubnis erteilt :-)

Frilly and Funkie - Author, Author
that was my Inspiration Creepy poem 

Gruselgedicht von Claudia N.

Schon immer, scheints, stand an des Waldes Saume,
umhüllt von Brombeerranken, ein Gemäuer,
als wäre es entstiegen finstrem Traume.

Noch keinem Wandersmann wars dort geheuer,
der hoffnungsvoll drin Schutz und Raststatt suchte,
sich aufzuwärmen an der Stube Feuer.

Warn auch die Wandrer noch so wildverruchte -
schlugs zwölfe erst vom Kirchhof her im Turme,
da regte sich das Haus, das langverfluchte:

Es schlugen Fensterläden wild im Sturme,
die Dielen ächzten unter schweren Tritten!
Der Mutigste sogar wurd drob zum Wurme,

ist schreiend, falls zu Ross, rasch fortgeritten,
davongestolpert, war er bloß zu Fuße,
hat um ein Haar den Schreckenstod erlitten,

im Ohr gehauchten Klang vom Geistergruße.
Vergessen wurd gesucht auf Bierkrugs Grunde,
nicht wenige auch taten betend Buße.
Doch alle warn ergraut seit jener Stunde.

Viel Spaß & Happy crafting!
