Witch's Shoe Tag

Playing towards the end of the week, here's my contribution for Tag Tuesday:  shoes
Please click on the link to see how the other players interpreted the shoe prompt.

I started with the shoe template offered at the Fripperies and Butterflies blog site for Leanne's challenge, due the end of October.   I increased the size of the shoe by 200%.

While I'm at it, I'll just enter this in the Gecko Galz Papercrafting Yahoo Group challenge, Paper Shoe, due October 25. Winner!

And was motivated to get it done in order to link up with Celia's Altered Witch Shoe challenge on her blog, Adventures of the Striped Stockings, which I saw on Tee's blog today. The event started yesterday which means I'm a day late to the party.

Witch's Shoe Challenge

Materials are scrapbook paper and embellishments from stash.

Using template, cut shoe from Making Memories Spellbound 12x12 Polka Dot Stripe (reverse side--cobwebs and words)
Outline shoe with black marker
Doodle Twine
the glittery cobweb bow arrived today, wrapping the coffin from Tee (see previous post)
I think the journaling tag is part of that same paper collection
Wilton black doily

Are you using the Challenges for Days blog?  It's on my sidebar.  I saw quite a few challenges to enter with this shoe.  I'll do that later this evening. 
Oopsie.  I accidentally hit "publish" before I uploaded my photo.  So, no, you're not seeing double.
