Fairy Tale Friday

Good Morning everyone.  Another, filled week at the Towers!!

The Woman's Institute did their best, but it leaked out and unfortunately all the girls at Teddy Bo Towers found out about the Charity Treasure Hunt that was taking place on Sunday Afternoon. It started at 12:00 noon, with teams of two setting out every ten minutes to find clues that'll lead them to a final destination, the winners being the team that gets there in the least time.

The look of dismay from the women from the WI was plain to see as the girls turned up, half empty bottles of turnip vodka being passed around.

The girls split into teams with Gayle and Debbie racing off first through the village looking for clues to the next location. Now we've already said how competitive Gayle is, but she's not the only one. The others started over the next hour, and ran through the village looking for clues to the final location, but Gayle decided to use her evil creative mind, and modify the clues.   Claire  and Donna arrived at clue number two to find that they had to take the bus to Edinburgh to collect a note in the Castle. Now Donna decided to take the note with her as this would mean the others wouldn't be able to find the next clue. They both got on the next bus out of the village.

In fact when Maritha and Jill arrived on the scene they couldn't find any clue . They started to wander around in an ever widening circle until they ended up at the lake. And that's where they accidentally found clue number four. They were looking for clue number two, but they looked at each other shrugged their shoulders and went off in search of clue number five.

It had taken Maritha and Jill so long to find the clue by the lake, that the other girls who were looking for clue number two saw them in the distance making notes. All remaining teams raced down to get that clue.

And so the battle continued, clue five was outside the village pub (there was a big delay at this point). Clue six was in the corner shop (another delay) and clue seven was at the playground which was situated on the outskirts of the village. Now by this time all the girls were a bit drunk, Gayle had realised that the other teams had skipped several clues, and both Gayle and Debbie were now last. They both decided that they needed to catch up, and when they saw a trail of artists staggering through the playground, they sneaked in behind them searching for the next clue.

Meanwhile, all the WI members were sitting in the church hall where they were having their local craft fair. Safe in the knowledge that the bunch of hooligans from Teddy Bo Towers were safely out of the way looking for a clue that didn't exist.
Apparently Claire and Donna were last spotted running around the base of Edinburgh Castle looking for yellow sticky notes with clues to the next location. Hopefully they'll make it back in time for next weeks story.

I have been playing around with my new toy - Craft Artist 2 and used papers from Nitwits that I got free with a magazine years ago - but I just love them!

I fancied doing something different this week and wanted to do something I've never done before.  So whilst wandering Pinterest I found this card  -
I liked the idea but wanted to work it so it was the same size as my usual ones so using just the idea I came up with this card. I'm not sure whether this will be a Christmas card or not so I have left it sentiment free. It doesn't show in the photo but her dress and hat are green.
