Ladies night out....and on location at the New Moon Set!!

Rhonda, Cindy and I lived life out on the edge this evening. Their husbands will think we were crazy, but out at 8pm we went looking for the New Moon Film Set for apparent filming at Bella's house. They may have doubted our abilities. But they were wrong. We found the set lot and we heard the wolves howl. It was an awesome night out. Now we have to go back during the day for better pictures!!

Approaching the set from the side field gave us great light and a good side view of the set location, but we couldn't see Bella's house.

We think that we can see a trailer here, after being asked to leave the location and our fabulous side view. LOL.

The back view of the lot, yes the lights really were that noticeable, with night filming apparently happening.

Rhonda navigated us back and around to find a new approach, stealth as we can in a car with camera's flashing!

Where we stopped for a while to see if any more vans would be coming or going, just in case we could see a star or two.

A new approach from the road where the van was seen coming in when we were still way across and walking on the field. Notice the blurry car lights up ahead? Another car approached the front entrance and we followed them in.

As close as we could be to the front gate without being yelled at by security. Yes we understand you have a job to do, all we want is just a non blurry picture or two, sir! All in all a successful evening out with Rhonda and Cindy. I am so thankful for my Twilight crazy friends!! Only 208 days till we see it back to back in the theatre girls!!!!

Coffee time

I embossed the sentiment with scented Gelly Powder by Gelatin Stamps, it is the Extra Foam Latte scent. The cardstock Chocolate Chip and patterned paper (I can't find the name of it) is Stampin Up.

Tried a new technique that I had seen online awhile back, stamped my Stampin Up vine from Baroque Motifs in Versamark and then re-stamped over the same area in Stazon white. The top lined up perfectly and looks fantastic, the bottom didn't line up as well and shows a bit more than I would like. Overall though I liked the look and would definitely try it again. The sentiment is from one of my favourite quote companies Stampers Anonymous. They always have great stamps and this one when I saw it I knew I had to have it for this year, my year of possibilities. The paper is leftover from another project and is by Imaginisce- Baby Powder King of the Crib. The cardstock is Stampin Up Kraft and Baja Breeze. The little dragonfly pebble is from Prima. Ribbon is from the stash. Scalloped punched by hand with the corner rounder and the double circle punch is Stampin Up.
