What Can I Say?

Hello everyone! Pretend it's Tuesday. Yep, I'm a bit behind schedule again.Smiley from millan.net I missed posting my card for The Burtonesque Dolls on time. For shame!

This week's challenge at The Burtonesque Dolls is sponsored by Busy Beauties Boutique, purveyors of wonderfully whimsical digi images, including new ones based on Tim Burton's move The Corpse Bride.


 I have to admit, I haven't seen the Corpse Bride, but I read about it here.  It actually sounds like a pretty good movie. I may have to have Ian call it up for me on our in-home Netflix subscription.


So it was a bit a of a challenge for me (haha) to figure out how to approach the challenge, which is to think wedding (or divorce - eek), bridezillas, grooms with cold feet, etc., or just the creepy cool color scheme from the movie - ANYTHING inspired by The Corpse Bride will do.

I opted for the color scheme based on the few pix I saw. And, of course, having this cute digi image to play with made it easier. That's Little Lionel by Busy Beauties.My son Avery is the one who reminded me that his face should be blue-ish gray.

I followed Sketch Saturday #104, which calls for a sentiment. I had to scratch my head on this one. All I kept thinking was, "what should it say?," which lead to "What Can I Say?" So I printed that out, and viola!

The DP and stickers are from the June Bug collection by Basic Grey (that's supposed to be the moon... you have to use your imagination!). {LOL}

Anyway, the rest of The Dolls did a MUCH better job than I interpreting this fun challenge, so be sure to jump over to The Burtonesque Dolls and see for yourself... and to play along for a chance to win 5 digi images from Busy Beauties Boutique!

This will be my last post for The Burtonesque Dolls. Instead, I'm going to focus my attention on helping Betty launch her new stamp line, Simply Betty Stamps. I sure have enjoyed my brief stint with The Dolls (even though I feel a bit like a duck out of water)... you won't find a more dedicated, macabre-loving group than they! There are lots of fun things in store, so be sure to subscribe to The Burtonesque Dolls blog to stay up on the latest challenges.

See you back here again soon!
