Shhh Witches in Training!

I just love altering old books found at the 2nd hand book store in the free bin bound for the trash. They just have such a lovely feel and just beg to be given a second life.  So the training school for witches found a home inside this lovely old book.  Here are some peeks inside...shhh the head witch is speaking!

 Class is in with the head witch wearing a crown on top of her hat...show respect!  They have some family pics of some up and coming young witches in training on the wall along with books of spells and potions of course.  And some ancient scrolls..who knows what they hold?  and some tube worms, necessary for so many potions.  It goes without saying the jar of eyeballs gets refilled a lot!  This stamp is from Lost Coast Designs and called "Early Stitch and Bitch"...love it!

 The opposite side is the cover of the book has a picture of some alumni and more creepy banners from a lovely lady who gave them as freebies and I cannot remember her name and it did not save it with the image but thanks so much!  Some tarot cards and a skull from air dry clay frame the pic.  The stamps used are all Lost Coast Designs "Dancing Skeletons"  "Mini Sugar Skulls" and the crown from the head witch is "Mini Crowns".

Here is the whole thing....with the hat hanging on the school chalk board sign along with some more spells or charter paper at the top.  

Hope you enjoyed your visit to the school!  And don't worry..no spells are ever attached to visitors IF they were quiet.  So I have to leave that issue open for now...I know I was very quiet but what about you?
