Eerily similar, yet different




Brooms have long been connected with witchcraft, almost universally portrayed as medieval-style round brooms and associated with female witches. Despite the association with women, in 1453, the first known case of claiming to have flown on a broomstick is recorded, confessed by the male witch Guillaume Edelin.[1] There are, however, prior records of witches flying on sticks or similar objects, usually that had been first greased with a magical flying ointment.
This $1 witch-e-poo from M's is so adorably cute!! Here are two versions of the same inspirational layout! Pulled out some of my neglected craft scissors to give texture to the frames. I love going in my paper scrap box and trying to make colors and patterns work. eery!!! boo!
