Default MMTPT197 ~ MAY 8, 2012 ~ OH AUNTIE HELEN! THERE AIN'T NO TELLIN'!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #197


That's Auntie Helen! There Ain't No Tellin'!
How did we end up with rank, rotten melon?


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

This is my story!

1. After searching through 42,000 teapots, I could not quite find the perfect teapot this week! So, because you all are so creative, genius, and amazingly good at bringing the perfect card to the teaparty, I decided to try something new! Three inspirational teapots this week! Whoot! And, you getta combine the three looks! This will be fun!

2. Where is this heading? A plan for a wedding! Groom Alan, Bride Ellen and Dear Auntie Helen, a joint effort for the perfect wedding! Here's where the road takes a turn, there is always one in a every family. The one person who everyone dearly loves, the one person who bends over backwards to help in every way, the one person who manages to mess things up no matter how hard they try!! That's Auntie Helen! There ain't no tellin'! Oooh, that Auntie Helen! She messes up alot! But we still gotta give her a shot! She's excited, she's pumped. She's just a little bit stumped! She's in charge of the flowers but after 42,000 hours, she's not sure of the shade, where's that sticky note she made? Oh Auntie Helen! There's ain't no tellin'! She thinks the color is melon with maybe some white? It's alright, don't get uptight, she do some googlin' tonight! Nanner, Nanner, she found a wedding planner! His name is Lou Alan MacEllen and his services are really sellin'! One click of this link and its his job to think!! Oh Auntie Helen! There's ain't no tellin!

3. That's Lou Alan MacEllen? I think he's Venezuelan! Ask Alan and Ellen, cuz there's simply no tellin'! This guy's really smellin' and what's that he's sellin'? He got off that boat? Look, he's pullin' a tote! He told Auntie Helen, "I've arrived with my melon! I know I am smellin', so sorry Auntie Helen! I'm Lewellen McClellan from the Straight of Magellan! Where's Alan and Ellen? I'm here with their melon despite getting robbed by an onery old felon! Do not fret, about what you're smellin', its not what you think, its not rank, rotten melon! Oh no! Don't you see, what you are smellin' is me! I'm Lewellen McClellan, I'm rank and I'm smellin'! I've not had a bath since the Straight of Magellan! But the melons are here, do not fear!

Oh Dear! Call Alan and Ellen!

4. Oh Auntie Helen! How did you end up with melon? For heaven's sake, there's been a huge mistake! That's Auntie Helen! There ain't no tellin'! She musta clicked on Lewellen McClellan instead of Lou Alan MacEllen! Oh Auntie Helen, did you not hear what we said? The color is red! We don't wanna be mean, but did you forget about the green! And a little bit white, now did you get that alright? We've got things to do, we're leaving this up to you!

Rut roh, time to step in as we all know Auntie Helen just cannot be trusted! Remember its flowers fit for a wedding. The flowers are red, combined with a little greenery against a backdrop of white! It's alright! Don't have a heart attack, we got your back, Auntie Helen!

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Make a wedding card. White background with red and green. If you bring the color of melon, you have to come in the back door and sit by Lewellen McClellan, the one that's smellin' (he's rotten and rank!)

Don't bring melon!!! Don't bring anything that's smellin!


EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)
Ooh, lets take it upon ourselves to bring something other than flowers to the wedding.....like maybe a cake! A cake for extra cookies! That's it! You get extra cookies for bringing a cake, a beautiful wedding cake in white, red and green!

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is Stockton, New Jersey. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending them to Alan and Ellen! Alan is the brother of fellow Teapotter Marie (momof5sons) and Ellen is his new bride. Alan and Ellen could use a little happy mail to celebrate their recent marriage. Due to some health issues that have suddenly come up with Alan, their marriage is starting out with some worry and concern! We are here to bring them back to the celebration of their recent marriage!

For more information as well as the address to mail your card, please visit Post #286 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!

Here is my card.

Here is the awesome card that Marie made her her brother and new sister in law.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday MMTPT197 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT197 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given me permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send me a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges. Feel free to grab this I survived Teapot Tuesday Badge for your blog!

Hope Allan and Ellen's problems will soon be behind them......and on to "happily ever after". Our cards should shower them with good wishes.

HAPPY MARRIAGE

How wonderful to celebrate a wedding all over again. I chose to do just a slice of cake instead of the whole thing (afraid I would eat it) teehee

Hi guys. I tried to upload this card to my album, but it won't let me. It says the pic has too many pixels and I need to resize the pic. From now on, I will scan them in. But, I did do the challenge and the card has been sent. I'm a little behind as I am still working on last weeks challenge and just got the cheater email for this week. Man, I need to get on the ball.

Here's Alan and Ellen's card. ~~~Em's Many Thoughts~~~: Wedding Card
