Boo says the little witch

For October the Gingersnap Creations theme is "Go Poe" and this week's challenge  GC121 is called Horror story. Come visit for a spooktacular time and see bootiful creations from the design team. This month is being sponsored by Alpha Stamps. Check out their site to see their fabulous selection of stamps. Now you know my interpretation of Horror would never be too scary. LOL. So, here is a large matchbox with glittery scary things on it and in it, that I made for a swap.

The big match box opens up like a coffin instead of  the traditional sliding way. Inside the box there is a creepy book mark and other treats. The purple outside is covered with black lace. There's a big black fabric flower accented with purple Stickles and an epoxy center. There's a bat, snake, chandelier, paper bottle and a trick or treat 3d sign. There are also some embellies that look like purple stone that say  boo and little witch.

Hope you will be a little witchy this week!
yours truly, gerri
