Halloween @ Storyteller

Good Morning, Crafters
After some really windy days, we’ve now had two calm, beautiful autumnal days at Røst.
I love this time of the year, with dark evenings when I can light candles, christmas is slowly nearing -but first it’s time for Halloween!
In Norway Halloween is a new tradition. Not everyone seem to like the «Trick and Treat’ing», but I really can’t see the big difference from the old, norwegian tradition «Julbokk», where people dressed up ond went singing around to each others houses in the days between christmas and new years eve…

The new challenge over at
has the challengetheme
and/ or use Halloweencolours 
(Black/ Purple/ Orange)

I have decorated an old chocolatebox.
Materials used for it:
Image: LaLaLand, coloured with ProMarkers
DPs: Graphic 45 «Steampunk Spells»
Dies: LaLaLand
Pearls: Storyteller
Letters (shown from the side): Making Memories
Feathers and metalembellishments from «the big drawer in my workdesk»

The top of the chocolatebox:

  10. Thanks for joining us at Without Words this month with your super project, it really has the wow factor, but unfortunately (and I am sorry) it doesn't comply with our challenge rules so you will not be eligible for the prize this time. I hope you will join us again sometime with a CAS card.. Hugs xx
