It's Never Too Late to Party!
Remember last week on Doodle Dragon Studios we had a challenge to "Bling It Up" a project. Well, I didn't get it done in time. In my mind, I saw (I can still see!) this perfect piece of Mardi Gras paper that I know I have. Apparently, I've put it in a "special" spot because I have search high and low for it! I kept thinking I was going to find somewhere in my collection. Nope. I couldn't finish the project without it. I was disappointed because I love this blinged up Mardi Gras dragon. Sadly, I set him aside.
This morning, I was cruising around the my usual favorite website stops. Party Time Tuesday is having a bling it up - anyway you want challenge! Yeah! My dragon was suddenly reawakened! I didn't find the original piece of paper I was looking for, but I decided this purple piece would work just fine. See... it's never too late to party! You can't get much more bling than a collection of Mardi Gras necklaces, rhinestones, and shiny Hershey Kisses. How you get your necklaces - is your choice. I, personally, just purchased mine from the store. Hee hee.
I must say I've only been to New Orleans once . I was pregnant at the time, with wild morning sickness (that lasted all day - all 9 months). The smells and flavors of the city put me waaaaaay over the top. I'm not sure if New Orleans was really given a fair shake. Maybe after I've checked off all the other places I want to travel, I'll circle back to it again.
Oh look, more chocolate! Does someone want to come help me eat all this?
