MMTPT83 THAT'S THE MADD HATTER? I THOUGHT HE'D BE FATTER!!
WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #83
THAT'S THE MADD HATTER? I THOUGHT HE'D BE FATTER!!
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! 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!
This is my story!
There is a place, like no place on Earth!
Some say to survive it, you have to be Madd as a Hatter!
Which, luckily, I am!
1. This teapot is da bomb! I was so inspired by it and guess what's funny? It's called the Madd Hatter! Imagine that! I just happened to be drawn to this teapot the same week I was drawn to another one of my favorite things! Johnny Depp! Bwhahaha! Being a part of Teapot Tuesday has its perks, for instance hearing a wildly successful actor like Johnny Depp say to Da Mudder, "Okay, Mudder, I will have my people contact your people"! Now for the rest of the story.....
2. We're going to London girls! For the special premier performance of Johnny's new movie, Alice in Wonderland! It was a no brainer that the Tuesday Teapotters would be contacted by Johnny's "people"! Who better, knows the inter-workings of a wild and crazy teaparty than us Teapotters! We have teapartied with the best of them! Johnny is picking us all up in 7 white lear jets with special Teapot Tuesday customized logos (black and white polka dotted teapots) on them so that you won't have trouble identifying your ride! Oh, and I negotiated a teaparty on the way to London (in our lear jets), direct e-mail capability to Johnny's "people" so that each of you can make your "dressing room demands", first row tickets to the premier and dinner with Johnny afterwards , AFTER he gets outa that rediculous garb:
But, there's a catch! Whut?
You didn't think this deal was one sided did ya?
Of course, Johnny also has his demands!
3. So here's the plan, Tea-gan! Tea-gan is actually from Ireland but he's temporarily in London to head up security at the official premier. Johnny and Tea-gan are extremely worried about 42,000 *kooks* that have already begun to arrive at the premier! And because the success of our wild and crazy Teapot Tuesday missions has spread world-wide, Johnny and Tea-gan have come up with a way to keep the *kooks* in line. (Our mission!) The plan is to post Teapotters at random throughout the rowdy crowd dressed in outlandish, crazy and bizarre outfits. These Teapotters will monitor the crowd and report issues/developments/possible trouble via walkie-talkies! It's a piece of cake really! We just have to act like a Johnny Depp fan, whether we dress in Captain Jack, Edward Scissorhands, or Madd Hatter garb! And if you don't have the perfect outfit to wear then just.....
4. Check out this Alice in Wonderland official movie trailer and be inspired! I think some of the things we need to be successful are things like gnarley trees, polka dotted mushrooms, tea party dishes (they might get broken), black and white checkered floors, warm pig bellies, white princesses, top hats (various colors), playing cards, rabbit holes, striped pants, castles, red wigs (Shaun White style), cheshire cats, tweedle dees and tweedle dums, jewelry fit for a Queen!You get the picture, right? Keep something of utmost importance in mind though! We need some bunnies!! Even if its bunny butts! I just worry that many a bunny might get smooshed in the making of this Tea Party!
Oh! And its also Dr. Suess's birthday today so you can bring a red and white striped Cat in the Hat top hat too!
I have help this week with two great sample cards!
Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT83 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? I am posting a sneak peak (tea peek) on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it a couple days after the Tuesday Challenge is posted. So, be sneaky and get a jump on the other tea-potters! Snort!
If you are confused about these challenge, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges
Just in the event that our beloved Johnny Depp should run into unexpected troubles.... I've cooked up a brew that should be used ONLY in the event of "necessity"! Surely this will enable an "escape" or a needed safe-keeping "powers" ... although we have no definitive parameters!
I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! but I'll see you all in London at the premier - we'll be the little bunnies in the basket acting very innocent but actually being keeping our sharp eyes (and noses) on the crown - radioing back to Tea-gan with our antenae ears anything that looks suspicious or evil! http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=93535
I just wanted to say that I've only come to the tea party a couple of times but I have had SO much fun! I love it here! and thanks for welcoming me and all your comments. I am sorry I can't comment back as much as I would like on everyone else's cards and stories right now but I will as soon as April 15th and my vacation afterwords is done. Probably more like May. Being a CPA and working so many hours right now it is so enjoyable to float off into this fun fantasy world. My mind needs a serious break of taxes and into frivolity and of course tea.
Can anyone bring some crumpets next time. Love crumpets!
