TTIC # 57 - Celebrating!

So it's Tuesday...and already I am exhausted and can't wait for the weekend.
...Ummmm, maybe not?! That's looking like it's going to very busy as well!! LOL!

But let's just focus on today shall we!
It's time for another

Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge

This week the very drop-dead gorgeous and delightful


(Oh and Happy Birthday for the 10th Honey)
Has chosen this weeks challenge:

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m still celebrating the release of New Moon!

And with my b’day in just a few days! I’m in the mood to keep on celebrating in every way possible!

… sigh… wouldn’t it be nice to receive a handsome vampire as a gift? ;)

This week’s Challenge is to create a “Celebrating” project for the vampire-lover in your life! You can choose any holiday or event i.e. birthday, Christmas, Valentine’s, etc.

Have a ton of fun with this one!

Comment portion: There’s no denying that we all have wish lists! Especially with the holidays upon us! Some lists are a little more practical than others… What’s on your “not-so-practical” wish list??? Please share!!!

I know some of you think I piked out of last weeks challenge...
I did have good reasons thought!! Really!
Anyway... I thought for this week, because Margie wanted to keep celebrating, that I would actually finish the layout...
Yes, you can all get off the floor now...
Donna has willingly done a layout!!
Actually, to tell the truth I did feel very guilty about last week...
And the TTIC DT has come up with some amazing projects...
So this is for you Ali!!
Ok...I didn't mind doing it, but you are never going to get me to actually love layouts...LOL!!

I really don't know if all this works...
I used October Afternoon's Apple DP for obvious reasons
and just went from there.
Of course, I layed everything and distressed the crap out of it!!

Just a bit of a close up...

Now I know that our fabulous Design Team have been
busy creating magical masterpieces so why don't you check them out as well....
