Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

Fathoms Below

It's challenge time over at  Kenny K's Krafty Krew 

This week we charge, headlong, into the surf with a "Sun, Sea & Sand" challenge. We have 2 sponsors this week...

first: Our very own Kenny K! With winner's choice of 5 digis. 

Our second sponsor is Marianne Designs with a fabulous prize! 

So, come on and enter for your chance to win!!! It's time to cast off your....cares...and head to the beach! (I bet you thought I was gonna say "clothes" didn't you?)

Cheeky monkeys.

I've been singing songs from "A Little Mermaid" all week. I mean, I've been singing 'em all! Out loud. It's just scary that I know these by heart. So, it's no wonder that when it came time for me to do my project for our sunny/sandy/sea-y challenge that I had to incorporate the lyrics from at least ONE of the songs.

I chose the first verse of "Fathoms Below". If I close my eyes, I can see the ship crashing through the waves then the scene fades down, down, down to the depths of the ocean floor far below. Be happy I chose this song. I could have just as easily chosen a line from "Under The Sea"..."Everything's better, down where it's wetter, take it from me."  Um, yeah...

I thought that would be a little too...er...suggestive if ya know-what-i-mean.

Cheeky monkeys.
