TTIC #56 Your New Moon Experience Part 2

Wowie! Did this past week just fly by for you or was it just me??? I had a great Thanksgiving (I think the food this year topped ALL other years!!!), and then the babies and I came down with this nasty cold that we are still fighting… But it’s on the outs so I’m hoping we’ll be back to normal within a day or so. But let’s get to the topic you visited me for shall we??? It’s Twilight Tuesday time! We are finishing up Your New Moon Experience this week. Here’s what I wrote (that’s right… my challenge! Gosh, that never gets old!!!) on TTIC:

Happy Tuesday Twilighters! So, have you seen it? How many times??? I know some of you have gone 2 or 3 times already! Now, the most important question… Did you take pictures???? If so, then join us in making a layout of your New Moon Experience! If you didn’t, that’s ok! Scrap your ticket stubs, journal about the evening’s events, etc! Just have fun with it! Even if you haven’t scrapped before, join in! We can’t wait to see what you make and read about your time at the movie!!!

So, here’s my disclaimer… I really wanted to do a different layout. I had a great idea… but no photo for it. So I was going to get stage the pic so I could make the page. Then the sickness entered our lives and all was lost. Maybe in a couple of days…? I’ll show you what I did make, then I’ll tell you the funny story that inspired the currently non-existent page.

As usual, please click on any photo to see it bigger.

So my sister Pam thinks of everything. She is so attentive to people’s needs and wants, all the time. She knew we were going to be at the theatre for a long time (since we were not only seeing New Moon but Twilight as well), so she decided to bring us a goodie bag. A HUGE goodie bag!

I usually have a little food stash for myself no matter where I go… but this was unreal! We had snacks galore! Yes, we did splurge and buy popcorn (esp because we were at the theatre that has the melted butter pumps…. ahh, heaven!). But I must say… those brownies were divine! I wish I had one right now….

So the funny story goes like this… I had decided to dress in a nice outfit, with makeup in my goth style. Nothing over the top, just dark. I had on a white shirt with bell sleeves and a velvet jacket. These items are from Newport News. It’s a pretty straight laced, normal catalog right? Plus, I had on my Tripp pants (ok, a little different, but around here? Normal.) Again, makeup was kinda goth. My pics don’t really do it all justice (yes, I really am that pale.) Anywho, we get to the theatre and this, like, 15 year old bouncing girl wearing Uggs comes up to me and says “I really like your costume!” I look at her and simply say “It’s not a costume.” Now picture this… the aforementioned 15 year old’s eyes mutating to look more like a fish than human, with her mouth becoming practically unhinged like a snake. Poor terror. No, not embarrassment… terror! Why you ask? Hell if I know! My clothes are from the Newport News catalog! My upper half was straight off the cover people! So after this girl does her animal morphing job in a mere 3 seconds flat, she and her amazingly shiny hair does a 180 and she RUNS AWAY!!!! Now, yesteryear, I may have been a little more snide with my comments, playing up the “role” a bit. But this time, I was taken so off guard…. I thought I looked fairly normal! But even the popcorn guy thought I was in costume! I’d love to know what they would have done if I went all out! So, I was going to make a page about this. I still will… I just don’t know when I will have a chance to do it.

So, this has become a super long post… I hope I kept you interested! Now go on and check out some of the other TTIC girls! A few of them will be off this week, but here is who’s in:

Have a great day!!!

Awesome layout and such fun pictures! People are crazy. I can wear about any clothes around here and not get too much hassle, but if I wear dark lipstick I get funny looks. I can't see your entire outfit in these pics, but what I can see looks perfectly respectable. Mmm, brownies...sorry, I'm easily distracted by chocolate.:) I really loved your challenge, by the way.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Changes

Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at alisonheikkila.com . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
