No - this is not my house . . .

This photo was part of a creativity exercise I did a while ago which was a study of light, shadow and textures. This is one of a group of rental cottages in Truro, MA which is here on Cape Cod. Check out the slide show for more pics.

Been up to a lot of stuff!

Wanted to share with you what I have been making this past week.  I am hard on to the scrapbook projects for my two goddaughters and I have a page to share with you.  I also have done a couple of card challenges that were fun.  First, we have this week's KennyK  Krafty Girlz challenge "Think Pink" and I decided to make a predominantly pink Christmas card.

Image:  KennyK Downloads "Xmas Shopping" colored with copics and then lips and earring done with sakura glaze gel pens and glittered up with stickles and elmers 3D glitter glue;  SU embossing folder using Bazzill basics pink CS and glammed up with Queen & Co pink gems, popped up punched out snow flakes MS punch and then glittered up with icicles stickles and pink elmers 3D glitter glue.

Then I never got around to posting last Tuesdays Teapot Tuesdays challenge.  So . .  . We’re off to London! Where’s my passport? Where are my tickets for the Queen Mary? We must be ready to meet the queen! I suppose we need an umbrella . . . ummmmm . . . what? Not THAT London?!?!? But we were suppose to play golf on the Scottish links. I know they said Tee Time . . . ohhhh . . . TEA time. Well all this confusion must mean its Teapot Tuesday and a new story: THIS BRIDGE IS A LEANIN' THE TOWNFOLK ARE STEAMIN'! MMTPT121.

Now Bonnie MacDonald (not those McDonald’s) some guys named Brice and Bricke tried to warn her not to cross but nothing would keep Bonnie from a nice round of golf). Imagine her surprise when she arrives, ready to play, and discovers that they said TEA time! Oh well at least she has on a lovely hat! Where are the cookies? (We have to give Pete a few treats - right?)
I started off with a frilly Victorian image and then when I came up with a caption of "Did someone say Tea time?" I remembered my image from Digital Two for Tuesday of the lady golfer and I KNEW what I had to do. Image is colored with Copics; sentiment is computer generated (as is the inside that says "Oh Dear, you said TEA time"), paper is from stash.
Finally, as promised is the page I did for the oldest goddaughter's christening page (so little here and yet she is a sophomore in high school now going to her first semi-formal this coming weekend).

I used a MS punch for the gold doily border and computer generated the title/description one the strips around the edge.  DP is also from our girl MS.
