So Seriously BUMMED!!!!!!!!!

Don't faint, this is the 2nd post of the day.  Please scroll down for this week's Dilly Beans.

I had grandiose plans for the RSD June Saturday Freebie Contest at Airless Chambers but I totally misread the deadline yesterday.  Yeah, I know we had all month, but we were out of town last weekend the the planning for the trip and the DT obligations totally screwed up the first few weeks and as we really don't travel well, I've been playing "catch up" ever since.  I thought I had all of today to finish and even postponed my morning walk to get a jump on it.  Then I checked the Linky and I had 1 hour and 3 minutes!  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  Had been fussing yesterday with a part that didn't even make the final  project and abandoned my fab idea just to get it in.  I toyed with giving up, not wanting to dumb things down but I really, really, REALLY wanted to play.  The image wasn't even fully colored and I started to shake during the fussy cutting.  Managed to get it done (minus several fab layers) and then couldn't find DP.  Looked again with 13 minutes to go and as the seconds ticked by, found ok DP, cut 2 (non square bases), printed and cut the sentiment and I thought I was ok.  Threw it down on the floor to photograph and snapped it on the rug.  Uploaded, came here to post (was just gonna throw it on and link and finish the post later) but when I went to Airless Chambers the Linky was CLOSED.  Scared the cat as I screamed obscenities and started to throw things but decided to post anyway.

The sentiment is "Let the Good Times Roll" in French.  He's a party kinda guy. Can't help but think of New Orleans when I think of Voodoo so I colored him in Mardi Gras colors.  His head is on an action wobble and close up, you can see Goliath's contribution in his other hand.  Can you believe I save that s***?  Just knew I'd need a bird leg sometime.  LOL  Well, so much for that.  Maybe when I have time I'll rip it all apart and do what I REALLY planned for this fab image.  Now I think I'll go drink my mid morning snack just to calm down and perhaps stop shaking.

Well, at least I can enter the Left of Center Challenge using the LOC theme, Through the Craftroom Door June 18-24, the DLArt June Linky Party, 613 Ave Create Anything Goes or with a TWIST for a Male and the new PunkYouGirl Anything Goes Challenge (3rd and final entry).
