Triplicate Trials Tuesdays....

Well,  what a drama.....I really got bemuddled this week when I set out to do my piece for Triple T as a member of their DT. I had missed the 2nd challenge altogether being in Melbourne and was determined to get back on track, but headed up to Sydney end of last week so my dear friend could tile our laundry & kitchen floors with us out of the way. I checked in with our DT leader and she was happy for me to be late, so got back from Sydney and threw together the page, (had it all ready in my mind) a bit during the day on Wed and a bit more that night, and just the title to do with the Cricut in the morning. I did not want to look at the Triple T site before creating my own piece so after rushing down to my friends to have the page photographed, coming back and editing it, attaching it to an email I finally looked at the site, only to find I had done the wrong challenge!!! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry!!

So today, I took Shaun up to the hospital to the rehabilitation gym, sat in the cafe and firstly wrote up my menu and shopping list and then designed my card in my head and scribbled it down on paper. I then ducked over to the Scrap 'n Stuff store at Richardson got the right coloured card stock and headed home. It didn't take long to put it together. I used the song by Rich Mullins (Christian Artist) 'Here in America' as my inspiration. I was toying with the idea of rebelling and doing something Aussie, but I might have not been included in the challenge.....LOL!!! I always love vintage so tried for a slightly vintage look. Hope you all like it. PS You will have to wait til the next challenge to see the other entry!! Please, enter into the challenge and become a follower, it is amazing to see how everybody has done something so different despite the triple challenge of colour, layout & theme.

Other Challenges I have entered this card in are:
CCEE Stampers - Electronic Cutters (the oval was cut with the cricut)
