It's about time...

OH my where to start...First I'd like to thank each and every person that signed up for my Marie Antoinette Swap and it really was a true pleasure. You girls all made the most lovely tags, hanging in my living room wall right now! I had so much fun getting to know you gals and catching up on you're blogs, I hope you enjoyed you're time well spent as much as I have. Second, I'd like to apologize to all my loyal followers who have been waiting for a real post from me. It all started on my last post, when I didn't have time to post pictures. Only a few short hours later, I returned to Blogspot to shout out to all my friends, when my computer started to go through a complete mental breakdown. Needless to say I had to take it to be fixed, and I have been without internet access for way too long. Couldn't have happened at a worse time like the end of a swap!

So I am deeply apologetic to all my swap participaters for the delay, but please rest assure that you're tags will slowly be trickling into you're mailboxes, and I know you're eager for the post like I am. And eager to see all the results! Check out you're other swap partners blog's if you haven yet already, post pictures of their lovely tags, and be sure to give them credit for all their talent.

Now...personally Marilyn Monroe has stolen a piece of my heart since I was a little girl, however with the upcoming release of the new Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland ( in case you havent heard), it not only seems more fitting but obviously the most popular. Introducing the White Witch, a classic Alice character in the original book that was never incorporated in the cartoon movie. She'll even be played by Ann Hathaway.If you scroll down more you'll find you'rself encountering a

photograph of
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, and the pair just crack me up! As excited as I am to have Tim Burton to direct it, keep in mind this is still a Disney movie!

and can you reckognize...it's Johnny Depp as the mad hatter!!! -------->>>

So I'm going to be preparing for the upcoming swap. The theme does'nt require you to use the Tim Burton, either, it's all optimistic. Let's take a test to see if you really read my blog---- these are not sign ups! I'll be announcing the opening of sign up's soon so please don't blast me with comment's signing up. You can prove it by commenting here and then actually signing up when it's time, haha. I'm not prepared, I'm concepting a unique type of swap for this one, so behold the suspense and just keep on looking forward.

My personal favorite from the Burton series: Queen of Hearts

Oh and for the record, my birthday is July 29!!!
