This month we were challenged to create a project that features
something tilted. Position a frame at an angle, tilt your text, add a
background strip diagonally, create a border that has an incline, slant a
sentiment block, the sky is truly the limit!
Iinked up Rosie Posie and made my own background paper, then die cut some roses from the set as my focal point. I decided to make my angle using banners diecut from my handmade patterned paper. Since Mother's Day is coming up, I used my tiny tags mother's day sentiment to top it off.
Thanks for visiting and before you go, enjoy a little Boston humor as we Bostonians try to stay cheerful despite our heavy hearts over the events of last week.
YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE BOSTONIANS The geographical center of Boston is in Roxbury. Due north of the center we find the South End. This is not to be confused with South Boston which lies directly east from the South End. North of the South End is East Boston and southwest of East Boston is the North End. There is no school on School Street, no court on Court Street, no dock on Dock Square, and no water on Water Street.
Back Bay Boston streets are in alphabetical awddah: Arlington,
Berkeley, Clarendon, Dartmouth, etc. So are South Boston streets: A, B,
C, D, etc. If the streets are named after trees (e.g. Walnut,
Chestnut, Cedar) you are on Beacon Hill. If they are named after poets,
you are in Wellesley.
Most people live here all their life and still do not know what the
hell is going on with this one. Route 128 South is I-95 south and it is
also I-93 north. The underground train is not a subway. It is the T, and it does not run all night (Fah chrysakes, this ain't Noo Yawk). Order the cold tea in China Town after 2:00 AM; you will get a kettle full of beer. Bostonians: think that it is their God-given right to cut off someone in traffic. Bostonians: think that there are only 25 letters in the alphabet (No Rs, except in idear.) Bostonians: think that three straight days of 90+ temperatures is a heat wave.
Bostonians: refer to six inches of snow as a dusting.
bang a left as soon as the light turns green, and oncoming traffic
always expects it.. Bostonians: believe that using your turn signal is a sign of weakness. Bostonians: think that 63 degree ocean water is warm. Bostonians: think Rhode Island accents are annoying.
How to pronounce these Massachusetts cities correctly: Worcester: Wuhsta or Wistah. Gloucester: Glawsta. Leicester: Lesta. Woburn: Woobun. Dedham: Dead-um. Revere: Re-vee-ah. Quincy: Quinzee.
