Q is for Quote

The next letter over at the Craft Barn for their Alpha challenge is Q and I have used the word Quote as I am famous within the family circle for coming out with miss quotes or quotes which make no sense. It seemed quite appropriate for this challenge  then  to use one of my most famous ones that the family have never let me live down.

Page has been given a wash of tester pot in 'Tuscan Terracotta'
Stamp was a freebie from Craft Stamper mag. 'Apr 2013'
Letter created using Sizzix Alphabet die 656133.
Snail made from Shrink plastic and painted using a tester pot of white.
What I had intended to say has long since been lost in history!
Entering into the following challenge:
The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge: Use the letter Q.
p.s. I won the Craft Barn challenge for the Letter N last week.

This sounds like something I would say, so I totally get it, Mrs. A. And anyways, in fact, I have seen white snails in my garden. Dead ones that have laid hidden all summer long and been bleached white by the sun. So you tell your family, "so there!" LOL! (And let's not forget that the title of your blog IS "It's an Alien Life!" Ahem.) Hugs, Darnell

Congrats on your win! I will page back and find that post to reread!

White as a snail...I shall remember that...hahahaha

Great page...I love that person sign shape!

I am not sure why eveyone thinks my cute little owl is a penguin. Penguins don't have wonderful eyes like that guy!!! And his name is "Owl on a branch"...penguins can not even fit on a branch! lol

Oh is viewed differently by time i should build a little igloo for my owl!!! lol

Hope your back is dong a little better. Is the accupunture helping?
