The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #16


When I first read our challenge for this week I was thinking WTH?!!  How and what am I going to come up with but after viewing the poem and then reading it again it was easy!!  Here you can read the POEM and here you can VIEW it.  It's 6 mins and if you do watch it, watch for a tree or something that I swear to goodness was used in Beetlejuice.  Tell me if you see it too.  So, I chose the 2nd paragraph, 2nd sentence:

He doesn’t mind living with his sister, dog and cats
Though he’d rather share a home with spiders and bats
There he could reflect on the horrors he’s invented
And wander dark hallways, alone and tormented

Admittedly, many of us hadn't seen the video for this, but once we did, we were hooked! So this week's challenge is to take a paragraph from the poem and use it for the basis of your card or project.

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!
