and was thrilled to see a challenge commemorating it's return over at 

So I made just a little something utilizing what I happened to have on hand, which is a funerary urn stamp. I tried to turn it into a crystal urn to hold "Talbot" bloody remains.

I also wrote a small poem to go with it, spoken in the voice of Russell Edgington.
The middle stanza is paraphrased from William Shakespeare's MacBeth....I did give that credit on the bottom.

So this is a 4 X 4 (or fat page or chunky page) with a pocket.

Card stock, ink and word window punch by STAMPIN' UP, Embossing folder by CUDDLEBUG, Funerary urn stamp by STAMPFRANCISCO, Corner stamp by BOMBSHELL stamps. Red EP by SPARKLE and SPRINKLE. Holographic EP by STAMPENDOUS. Thin Black pen by FABER- CASTELL. German Scrap by ARTCHIX STUDIOS. Poem by ME!

The Poem says:

True Death

My TRUE love, Talbot
Entombed in Crystal
Silent sobs catch in
my dry breath.

*Our yesterdays have lit
the way to dusty death.
Signifying nothing.
Sayeth MacBeth.*

I will mourn you
with a vengence
until the day of m
my own TRUE death.
S. Guzy ©6/2012
*paraphrased from MacBeth; V,v
