day 9 of 31 days of Hallowe'en

Well I'm still hanging in there. Day 9 already of the fabulous 31 day long blog hop organised by Smeared and Smudged to celebrate Hallowe'en. The blog list is still there in my right hand side bar. For full details of the rules and regs, it's best you go read them at the forum or at Terra's blog. Terra has all the info on the daily prizes available from our fabulous sponsors as well.

My little piece today. Yes it is little. It measures 9cm x 7.3cm that's about 3.5" x 3".
It's an altered box that had some charms in it.
Painted black then distressed along the edges. Some inchie stamps from Inkadinkadoo stamped onto thin orange card to form the scenes on 3 cubby holes. An inked image of bottles stamped in white onto black when I was staying with a dear friend, Black Dragon, in the summer, was cut up and stuck in two more of the holes. Another image formed the front of a little book.

The bottles have Goblins' eyes (seed beads) and powdered Dragon blood (gold glamour dust) in them.
a tiny candle (again thanks to BD) and 3 beads - poison, laudenum and a cows scull - are the other contents.
This is the box with the contents removed

Thank you for visiting me and for all the kind comments I have received. 
You will, no doubt, have arrived from Valerie's fabulous Blog and now is the turn of the equally fabulous Sharon to go ooo and ahhh over her creation.
See you all tomorrow.xx

I'd like to enter this into the challenge over at 
Crafty Calender - Spooky /recycling
