This will be a quickie post, hence the part one. Today MAMMa had a Twilight party, and a bunch of us were invited. What a blast. I will tell more tomorrow, but I quickly wanted to share a few pictures, and my swap card. We were supposed to do a Twilight inspired card, and well I put my old thinking cap on, and you know how crooked that usually is, and this is the card I came up with.
Stamp Set: Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories, Compliments to the Chef, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Ink: Going Gray, Soft Suede, Basic Black
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Misc: Watercolor crayons, sansodor, stumps, scallop circle punch for rain clouds
So just in case you are not a Twilight fan, the movie/book is set in Forks, Washington, and Bella has a red old truck…so basically it is Bella and Edward driving through Forks…hey I had to think out of the coffin box.
So I will share a couple pictures, and post more tomorrow, it is super late, I have to get up early as I have class in the morning.
This is me, Diana Cullen, Rhonda Cullen, MAMMa Cullen (oh yeah we all changed our last names to Cullen tonight)
We were having to be quick to get our pictures taken since we are vampires and all, and this was painful, the hot sun…ha!
Here we are biting each other, except MAMMa, she was behaving like a good Mum will. I don't know if you can see our bite marks, a little sharpie marker and red nail polish and voila' you've been bit!
We were laughing so hard. Rhonda even had sparkly spray stuff on and make up under her eyes, AND she had to go into Walgreens on the way to MAMMa's in her get-up, I did my shopping ahead of time…ha!
I had to cement my fangs in and wanted them to sit up for a while.
I will share more photos and stories tomorrow, I am beat, and ugh I ran over a snake on the way home. I was freakin' out, I called Melissa and was saying if you run over a snake it won't somehow wrap itself around, or flip itself in my wheel and climb in the car, and she said no…just to be on the safe side I tried to run over every pot hole on the way home, just to jar it loose just in case.
Well this is it for me tonight, and I will chat with you tomorrow!
Have a great Saturday, and thanks for stopping in!
I guess I'm gonna have to give up and watch that movie…Very clever card with the forks. love ya, love the fangs! 🙂
I love Twilight. Can't wait til 11-20. Woohoo. Diana you are too funny.
And to memphisrobin, read the book first. It is soooooo good. You will fall in love with Edward too.
Debbie Keane says
Diana, you are just too funny. I love the "Forks" idea. That was genius. My girls will love it when I send it to them!!!! I bet you all had a blast. Wish it was in my part of town! Oh well can't wait to hear about the party.

Looks like a great time! I would love to stamp with you gals, but your writing about snakes freaks me out! Not afraid of vampires, but snakes put me up the wall!
Didn't our mother spend lots of money to get rid of those fangs!!!!! That sounds like a fun party. And the snake thing….you have been thinking that since you were a kid….remember riding your bike down the laneway and thinking if you ran over the snake it would wind itself around your bike tire!!!
I miss you
Love ya lots
Rhonda Morgan says
OMG, the pictures! And the stories… ha! We did have fun but I am so glad I didnt have to ride home with you… the snake thing just creeped me out big time! You know that's how it happened to me, ran over it w/my motorcycle and it coiled up in my front wheel — phobic ever since. ugh, now to go read something lovely to get this snake thing out of my mind before i go to bed!

This would also work for a just moving or some other life change card with a legend of "turn at the fork in the road" or some such thing. Love the idea Di you really have that out of the coffin thinking going!
Hugs – Jean
