What day is it? Really?!

Running a bit behind this week.
Better late than never.
This week's challenge at HDH is to find inspiration in one of
the Brother's Grimm fairy tales.
There are well over 200 tales of strangeness, murder,
intrigue, and superstition to choose from.
Disney apparently took his signature move of killing off
the mothers in the first paragraph, as told by the Grimms in the
original stories.
Then the evil step mother and her unattractive and ill behaved
offspring arrive to ruin the life of the sweet, and innocent
maiden and her widower father.
Three drops of blood also seem to be a theme in more than
one of the Grimm stories, although I only recall
the specific reference in Snow White. 

I went with an oldy, but a goody (aren't they all?),

Hansel and Gretel

That old witch has no idea what she's in for! 

I used Bowtie and Karin from Stampotique to
represent those kooky kids in the story. 
I colored them up in bright, candy colors and Stickled the
begeezus out of the old shack to make it pretty to the

Little does the old crone know that the kids have
other plans for their dining pleasure.
More of a "meat tooth"  to satisfy, if you will.
I popped the fence up on foam dots to give it dimension and an
unintentional wonkiness that totally works. I added rhinestones
to the MS punched fence, and some candy border stickers
to finish  this off.

There is still time to enter our challenge at HDH.

fabulous setof Alice in Wonderland digis seen here.
