Halloween Backgrounds and Altered Book Pages

My post title is about as uncreative as you can get.  Maybe my journal pages aren't all that wildly unique either. I stuck with traditional Halloween colors. Also traditional Halloween themes.
I guess you're the judge.

I apologize for the not so even lighting. Leaves some dark spots in the photos.

I do really like these ladies though. Image is a stamp from Cherry Pie. I've seen this image as a real photo before and I wonder whether these ladies were dressed up for the photo  because I can't imagine they always dressed like the witches in Macbeth.
The one on the right looks like she's having a good laugh and maybe its not just tea in her cup.
When I searched for this photo I found a few other interesting ladies.

These ladies look like beautiful girls just ready for a Halloween party.
And these ladies might just be real witches.

And of course you can't forget the Wicked Witch of the East from the Wizard of Oz. I love the shadow effect!

Guess that's enough lovely ladies and spookiness for today.
Thanks for dropping by.

I do like your page with the four witches and am quite prepared to believe that they always dress like that, they certainly have the faces for it. I like their motto too.
