ZOWEE ... Phil, host of the Amazing Race, has come to the party this week to take Aunt BeBatrice's mind off the deplorable living conditions of her sister Felisha Batisha who has been living in the bat cave.
See - while the 42,000 tea potters are swarming the varioius Bat Men to get autographs and whatever else they can, Phil will raise a single eyebrow -- which is his MAIN super power btw - and BeBatrice will be putty in his hands! I mean, who wouldn't WOWZA!
A group of us took part in an Amazing Wine Pool - a little game we played during this last season of the Amazing Race. The winner receives a bottle of wine from each of the other seven players! I did not win - again this time. And so this is the tag that I am putting around the bottle of wine I will be giving to the winner!
Printed out a picture and computer generated sentiment and then matted with teal and black cardstock. Tag base is black with co-ordinating papers from American Craft Teen Pack. Added a jumbo grommet and ribbon with gold cording. Punched out three stars in black, teal, and shiny gold and layered them on top of each other.
Thanks for taking a peek!

totally cool. Please see what you can do to see if I can be on that show!!!! I watch it every year and have influenced a lot of people to watch too. You should be able to help with this awesome tag once he sees it. I was so hoping the Cowboys would win. I just loved them!!! They made me smile the entire journey. tfs.

Our family and various friends have a pool each Amazing Race contest but we just play for hard cash. As many as want can pick the same team but the winnings are less for the more popular teams. Wine sounds like fun but we do it with people from several parts of Colorado as well as California so I guess we better stick to money. It would be fun to take your idea and make bookmarks for everyone next season. TFS the idea.

I'm going to have to check out this Amazing Race (no TV!!). The Amazing Wine Pool sounds like fun, too. And yep, there's something about being able to raise just one eyebrow. I guess you're right, Aunt BeBatrice won't be up to noticing anything else once Phil strolls over. Smart ploy, but don't think I haven't noticed that there are NO flowers - or were you thinking of the wine bouquet!!

Forget the wine....gimme the tag! Snort! What a fun, fun, fun idear!!! I love this....you are so creative.....I must admit I have not ever really watched the Amazing Race! But it sounds like an addictive thing to me! Hee! Maybe we need to have a Teaparty Amazing Race and you can host it! I can just imagine the trouble we might get in! Giggle! I know I would win! Tee Hee!
Phil is a good option.....and I think it might be a plus that he is not always gone chasing villans! So glad you are here!

Laurie, this is really great. No wonder K was taking pictures on her cell phone. It was a great race and I'm missing the Cowboys already!! Watching TAR is so much more exciting with the pool going and the prize at the end is the icing on the cake. Cheers!
