TTIC32 ~ The Great Northwest

This week Eve has us pondering the beauty that is the Great Northwest…

Challenge for Tuesday is The Great Northwest. If you have ever lived there you know what I mean. Maybe if you have only visited there you know what I mean. Maybe if you only heard about the filming of the movie you know what I mean. It is beautiful there. There is a reason for it's beauty....all the rain!
So from the space needle to the forests. From the rain to the trees. From the lush green beauty of it all to the Olympic Peninsula. There are so many reasons to LOVE the great Northwest. Edward's family chooses to live there. Bella feels she has to live there, and hated visiting as a child. Don't forget the trips to Seattle, the coast, and into the forest. Have fun with this one!
Comment portion: If you could visit anywhere in the Northwest - where would it be and why?

Well, that’s easy – I’d go to La Push to visit Jake and the boys, then I would hang out in the woods behind the Cullen’s to sneak a peek! Seriously, though, I have always wanted to visit Vancouver and the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. It seems like an awesome city! A little farther north than Forks, but same idea. Heck, if you are from the East Coast, like I am, in my mind it’s the same thing. (Don’t hurt me BC’ians!)

For my craft, I am recycling again. I had a plan and blew it. I’m going to go ahead and blame it on the ants that popped up out of NOWHERE, since they forced me to bleach my entire kitchen or risk certain insanity and probable institutionalization… Yeah – that took all day. Good times. The colors that always make me feel like the woods are in these two projects. TTIC32 Great Northwest I love the deep greens and browns – I’m from Maine, we spend a good part of the year living those colors! This first card is a favorite – I LOVE to play with my brayer. I don’t know why I don’t use it more often. (Oh yeah – NO TIME!) The second one is one of my favorite cards that Tonya ever sent me.TTIC32 Great Northwest2 And it is kinda funny because she was so shocked to learn that I was Team Jake! LOL I believe I actually stunned her for a minute. Ahh, memories…
