Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

Have Your Cake...

Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!

I know I've been sort of MIA as of late. My summer (like so many of yours) has gotten crazy busy! And, for me, it's only getting BUSIER with no sign of slowing down until like October. So much to do...so little time. I feel like the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.


I will post about what I'm up to toward the end of August. Or maybe the first part of September.
But now, it's time for a new challenge over at  

The current challenge theme is 
"Chocolate and Cream Colors"
I don't know about you...but that totally makes me hungry.
Remember...you can ALWAYS enter an "ANYTHING GOES" theme too...as long as you use a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, or Gruffies stamp.

For my project, I used the super cute "Eat Your Cake and Nap Too" stamp. It's an old stamp, and I'm not sure if it's still available. I colored up the image with my Prismacolor pencils. And now I want to go make a cake.

And eat it.
