**********************************

* I have a bit of sad news this week. :( *
One of our great DT members AnnMarie Bryant has decided it is time for her to move on. I am SOOOOOOO sad. AnnMarie holds a very special place in my heart. I love her style and I have been online friends with her for a couple years now. She will still be crafting and I wish her all the best! I hope she will come back for a Twisted Guest appearance every now and then though :)
We love you and will miss you AM! :)

Thanks to all who participated last week!

A little something special this week....
Our winner chosen by the lovely AnnMarie Bryant is:


Our top 3 picks are:

 #5 ~ Tracy M.
#14 ~ Sonia

Here's this week's challenge:

THE CHALLENGE

 Let's get back to basics! This week, you can't use your Big Shot or your Cricut (no machines) or your paper punches....that's right! NO TOOLS. Let's try and remember how we first crafted all those years ago. :)
I've had some questions about this challenge. Here's some clarifications:
Yes, your paper trimmer is an exception. You may use your paper trimmer :)
I'm only talking about mechanical things such as a Cuttlebug, Cricut, Big Shot, Paper Punches and the like. You MAY use any stamps, embellishments you like. Just try not to use "machines" to help you create with this challenge. Thank you for the question! :)


THE TWIST

This week's challenge is so challenging.....there's no Twist! Yep! I'm going soft......no crafty Twist this week!!!! Enjoy!

Here's some beautiful basics our Design Team came up with:

AnnMarie

2TC23 ~ Never Forget


9/11

I am crying as I type this blog post. Just looking at this date makes the tears come. Our country will never, ever be the same because of what happened 11 years ago. I remember and always will remember what I was doing at the exact time I heard. I weep for the people that lost their lives that day. I weep for the ones who lost a loved one. I smile when I think of all the people that helped that day; Firemen, Police, Military Forces and so many more. Then, unfortunately I weep again because some of those same Heroes are fighting a battle today because of things they were exposed to on 9/11/01.
I try so hard just to think of the victims and their families and pray for them and not focus on the cowards that invaded our land. I love my country and it angers me when someone tries to destroy something I hold so dear. I want this date to bring sympathy, thoughts and prayers to those affected. If we let anger and bitterness crowd our minds......the cowards of that day get what they wanted. I will not let that happen.

Join us today at Twisted Tuesdays remembering the 9/11 victims and families with this challenge....

THE CHALLENGE
Make a Sympathy or Thinking of You themed creation.
THE TWIST
 No crafty twist this week....
We here at Twisted Tuesdays ask that you HUG THE ONES THAT YOU HOLD DEAR.
Thank you so much. God Bless America

Here are some wonderful creations from our Design Team...
