Mount St Nacho, Twilight Review and a Reject...

I have a few things to share today...


First my DT Reject...LOL...I tried out for the CY DT using this layout interpretation of Sketch #3 (12x6)..their link is over there on the right. They have a lot of really great sketches there...no, didn't make the DT maybe one of these days...but that's ok...I like the way it turned out..

Supplies used: Unity Scalloped Journal and Nov KOM...love that tree DP is Kaiser, Making Memories, CTMH

Based on CPS #92 Supplies used: Unity Stamp Co "Something Within" DP K and Co

Soooo...What did you think of Twilight? I really liked it, and I would like to go see it again. I thought the casting choices for almost everyone were dead on..the only ones that bugged me were Jasper and Alice, mostly Alice...not at all what I pictured in my head, but I think I'll get over it as they make the next two. A lot of the conversation between Edward and Bella was lost in translation and so it seemed kind of choppy to me in parts as well. Still, I loved it...I think it made a good compliment to the book and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the next one.

I went with my friend Mechelle, and her 16 year old daughter Sara...the Movie Theatre got all froggy when I tried to take pics there, but here's a pic of us having lunch afterwards..

Sara fell in love with Edward as soon as he hit the screen, but I explained to her that I wasn't sharing him until she reads the books, Mechelle read the books too and she agrees...


This is Mount St Nacho...seriously...what was I thinking?...
Afterwards, we went thrifting at Goodwill...because it's super fun... while we were there they had Christmas music playing and there was a woman who was singing along opera style REALLY loud and she was serious...she was not playing...I wanted to take her picture but I was too busy peeing my pants laughing so hard plus Mechelle kept telling me to stop it and be nice (Mechelle is a very nice person) but I couldn't help myself (I mean no offense to any Christmas Carol Opera singing Goodwill customers out there) So Sara and I joined in the carolling...and then we made Sara try on lot's of goofy clothes and model them for us...she's a pretty good sport...I told her I know it's a lot of fun to hang out with really cool mom's like us, but not to get used to it....just kidding Sara!


So that's all I've got...I've got to get to the post office and mail Eclipse and New Moon to Steph in Japan...I promised I'd do it a week ago...oops... Steph (oh she who was so not interested in reading Twilight) started the books about a week and a half ago after I sent them to her and then called me and said..."um I'm halfway through New Moon...when can you send the last two"...LOL

Okay, so much to talk about here...first, I am so sorry about the DT. I think that your layout is gorgeous!

I love BOTH of those cards...you do awesome things with Unity!

Wow on the nachos. I don't even want to think about the fat content in those,but YUM!!!

I still haven't gotten to see Twilight so I am glad to hear a good review...and you may not have liked who they cast for Alice, but I totally want her haircut! :o)

oh I was hanging out to read what you thought of the movie, I have a month to go before we can see it in NZ. Interesting to read your take on it.

Sorry to hear you didn't make the DT.

Maybe your layout was rejected because of the two people in it with you!! LOL I love it though and am touched that you did one with us in it.

LMAO at the opera singer. I don't know if I would have held it together.

I liked Jasper, he was funny and kind of reminded me of Apolla Anton Ono (sp?) I pictured Alice with longer hair but I liked her. Rosalie kind of bugged me though. I thought Edward was kind of creepy looking, then I watched the movie and thought he was pretty darn hot in it.

Thanks for the stamp! It arrived yesterday! It's adorable!

And, because we use a ducky stamp when the kids are potty training and my last one is currently potty training he insisted on me stamping his hand with that big flower stamp:).

Twilight's not out here yet. I know I'll be a chauffeur when it happens.

My word verification is holumake. Is that a kind of sushi?

oh my! that is some food mountain. Great layout and cards

Kellan said...

Sara is so cute! I was hoping to see Twilight this week with my girls - they saw it last week and loved it.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Take care - Kellan

I think I would enjoy spending an "evening out on the town" with you -- you sure know how to have a good time! Next time I visit Christi, maybe we should plan a night out!!!

I think your LO is gorgeous too! I love that tree with the buttons! Their loss! I haven't seen Twilgiht yet....some of the teachers have, and have given mixed reviews. I want to see it anyway!

Sorry about the DT gig. But let me share with you a little tadbit. DT's aren't all what they are cracked up to be. Okay you might get a free monthly kit, but in return you must work your butt of and be creative for that free kit. Personally I have come to the conclusion that when I work I like to be paid. My time is valuable so if I am working my tail off for someone else, it better be worth it. One thing you can't replace is time.
Okay enough of the blah, blah, blah. LOL

I liked Twilight too, and of course you read that on my blog. As for Alice, did you picture her to be a tiny blond hair girl? That is how I had pictured her. I do think they nailed the Edward and Belle. IMHO.
Just think this was a low budget movie, and now that it was a hit, can you imagine what the next movie is going to be like..I can't wait.

Now may you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!
