White Rabbit is Toot Tooting....

White Rabbit and I have so much to say today, I just don't know where to begin. I'm not a real chatty blogger, pretty much down to the facts, just the facts ma'am...but today....lol

Those that know me...the 2 of you....know I'm a grungie type of gal, the more wild and bizarre an image is, it follows me home...but today, I'm playing with Alice and friends! I have no idea why this whole Alice thing has me excited, but I just love the characters, and see so much fun coming from the entire Alice blitz. So here comes WHITE RABBIT.............trumpet please......



The White Rabbit image is from Twisted Papers, painted, of course with Creative Inspirations dazzling line of color, please read below for White Rabbit's announcement, for the Bloggers Challenge Birthday challenge, my friend Hel's Sunday Stamper challenge, the GingersnapCreations Birthday challenge, and my GF Kristen's new Snap Creations Going Grey Challenge! Now if that ain't a mouthful! and Chatty Cathy goes on and on today....speaking of Birthday's...it's my Birthday weekend, (I'm taking a 4 day weekend to celebrate!, birthday is actually Monday), it's the GingersnapCreations 1 year birthday, and it's Lisa's, Shelly's, Sharon and Shelley's birthdays too on Monday the 15th, all gals from the Artistic Outpost group! And most of all it's my DD birthday!!, luv you babygirl!!

White Rabbit is announcing that I have joined the Creative Inspirations Design Team! I am so in love with this fab new product, "I could have played all nite"...My box of paints arrived yesterday, and I couldn't wait to get into my studio to start creating. The colors are amazing! Bright, Sparking , over 50 colors. Shake, open and play, create immediately, dries fast, ez water clean up, you need to check them out. Price is very inexpensive, you'll be glad you stopped and shopped. I didn't have lots of time to play, but I pulled out a brush and just started coloring, and highlighting, then I thought, lets distress the edge..so I pulled out my Cut and Dry, put a little paint on my craft sheet, dragged it thru and was able to use it like an ink pad on my edges. Mixed with water you can make all the glitzy sprays you can imagine, all from 1 product!
These are the colors I used in no special order, Tan, Chocolate, Sky Blue, Antique Gold, Garnet, TuTu Pink, Mellow Yellow, Green Olive, Aqua Marine, Pink Highlights, Carmel, Mocha Latte, and Tickled Pink! You should seem the glimmer and glitz that show thru these paints,
luv'em!

OMG, I am worn out...blah blah blah, I need to rest now! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to stop by and check out all the info I have for you. huggerz, I'm gona' party all weekend long!!!
