 I hosted a paper doll book swap this month  and here are my completed papers. The theme was open to any kind of paper doll,  I chose to do Marie  

it was fun pulling out all my lace and trims 

and here is the book completed  I made the covers too...
and the pages I got back from the other swappers  were fabulous . It turned out to be a really pretty book.

The raven ATC

 Haunting Raven ATC for a up and coming swap.....  although I think some of these images are crows.. and I have a question  why is it you start hearing crows cawing as soon as the weather starts to cool down ?    I have lots hanging around and  never see them in the summer   Why is that ?

welcome to hotel Hell.....

'Tis now the very witching time of night,

When churchyards yawn and hotel hell itself breathes out

Contagion to this world.

Once you sign in ... you'll never leave Hotel Hell

We were driving through a wooded empty section of highway.  There hadn't been another car pass us  for  hours. Lightning flashed, thunder roared, the sky went dark in the torrential downpour. "We'd better stop," said I.  My sister  nodded her head in agreement. When I stepped on the brake, the car started to slide on the slick pavement. We went off the road and slid to a halt at the bottom of an incline  hitting a large, old twisted tree.  

" Now you've done it,"  my sister complained  pulling at her rain coat from the back of the car.  There was smoke coming from the engine. "  Damm, "  I said as I peered  through the already fogging windscreen glass." Looks like there's a light ahead, " I said.  

" They'd better have a phone and a warm fire or you are dead meat, " Anna said irritated. " Oh boy it was going to be a long night  I thought  pulling my rain coat over my head and dashing out of the car door, banging it shut with my foot .   The lighting flashed again lighting the car bent around  the tree.  No way to move it until morning , well not in this weather.  

The thunder roared.   Anna was already moving towards the light,  I stood for a second , a cold chill ran down my back  maybe we should stay in the car  instead of  tramping  through the woods to the light ... it might be nothing but a street light. I was just about the call to Anna when an flash of lightning  hit the old  tree the car was wrapped around.   The car hummed with the electric, the air vibrated . Okay maybe sitting in wrecked car under a tree in a thunderstorm was not the best idea I murmured  running after Anna as fast as I could.

The light turn out to be a worn  hotel sign.. some of the bulbs had burned out   and where it had once  said " Hotel Shellbark" it now said  "Hotel Hell"

" Hotel hell" Anna said  " yes that about sums up this night "  The Thunder clapped again as she disappear into  the gloomy dark lobby.  I didn't like  this I thought but I still followed her slowly through the entrance. 

I  peered over my shoulder to  the trees  and the faint glow of our car headlights as the door. 

 "Welcome to Hotel hell," said a voice as the large entrance doors slammed shut.

  I'm late with my  haunted hump day post....    

 “Floating in the sky, which was just beginning to turn pink, was a

 large, oblong cross about which flew several silent crows, like a 

sinister flock of winged coffins.”

Haunted hump day

Well it's here 

 Challenge day  
Post your day of dead portrait on your blog or facebook and then leave your link  here. So everyone can pop over to admire them 

I love the idea that you remember your dear departed  friends and family members 

Day of the Dead  Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures.

 The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it is a national holiday, and all banks are closed.

The celebration takes place on November 1 and 2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day

Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased  with skulls made with sugar ,Marigold and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts.

They also leave possessions of the deceased.

  My day of the dead portraits were made with the images from itkupilli  kits.   Thanks also to Wikipedia

also thanks to marfi  here her link so you can pop over to see all the other Haunted hump day posts 

I also found some fun blog posts  http://whitehorserelics.blogspot.com/

witch shoe

 for a swap at blissfullART  , fun to make from a child shoe


The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.

Emily Dickinson

Made with the Autumn on my mind journal pack from MoonlightJourney Artistic Collage Sheets, stamps from Tangie Baxer and written overlay from altered emporium
