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.

Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!

It's Monday over at  
 ...and that means it's time for a brandy-new, shiny challenge!

This time around we're springing into the season with a  Happy Easter theme!

(see what I did there?)

So, hop on over and enter!

(I did it again. hee hee hee)

As always, if you don't want to make an Eastery-themed project...you don't have to! We ALWAYS have an "Anything Goes" option--as long as it's a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, or Gruffies image!

We are proudly Sponsored by:
**Prize for ONE lucky winner is **
2 Single digi images OR 2 card Topper Kits (or one of each) 
(no sets or sentiment sets) of the Winner's choice.
Here is my take on our current theme. I used the Happy Hoppers stamp called "Knit Chick Purl 2"--available from Stampendous. I just ADORE this image. It makes me giggle.  Isn't it C-U-T-E ???

I colored it up with my ever-reliable Prismacolor colored pencils. As requested, the complete list of the colors I used is below (be prepared, there's a lot of them). And what-do-you know...one of my Copic markers even came out to say "hi" for a brief visit as the speckled background.

  • Blush Pink 928
  • Pink Rose 1018
  • Rose 929
  • Light Peach 927
