Hatchet Lizzie

Fat Pages With Attitude     Challenge #5-Anything Goes

I'm back because each every other Friday I'll be posting back to back posts for the sister challenges that I'm on the design team for--Fat Pages With Attitude and ATCs & Cards With Attitude.
You probably just got through reading the post for ATCs & Cards With Attitude, but I'm going to be doing a little bit of repeating so bear with me. 
As of February we will be adding Themes to our challenges just to help spark a little bit more interest out there, we hope. Abbie our fearless leader has worked very hard and arranged for at least one sponsor and sometimes more for each challenge for the rest of the year, that means prizes for every challenge. We all love to win prizes, I know I do. So I'm putting out a call to all my faithful followers old and new to come over to these two challenge blogs and play along with our fun challenges and check out our very talented Design Teams. 
O.K. enough unabashed begging, or in posher circles, promoting 2 fun challenges that you may not have known about.
For my Fat Page today this is a digi stamp from Limited Runs Stamps, they've got about 22 catagories of digis to choose from and this fortnight the prize will be Winners Choice. How cool is that? You get to pick.
Our sponsors are generous with the team each challenge and give us a digi to play with to give our entrants some inspiration, well, when I saw this little gal, she's got some attitude going on doesn't she?
I couldn't get a certain little rhyme out of my head. If you're not a history buff you may not catch on to my tongue in cheek creation, so I'll give you a little story--
Back in the late 1800's there was a young lady named Lizzie Borden, she was accused of killing her parents, it was quite a scandal and a horrific crime scene. The newspapers as they do today jump on stories like this and sensationalize them, so they came up with a rhyme to sell more papers and keep people all head up about the story--
Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks.
When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.

I've always been fascinated by the author and artist Edward Gorey, so maybe this is my quirky, creepy side showing ;-)

Thanks for hanging in for my long posts and we hope to see you playing at our sister challenges in the coming months.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

Very cool and wonderfully edgy...and a wee bit freaky. Love it! Lizzie's a good ole Massachusetts girl just like me!
