August theme and palette: Hotel California




"On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night"
~ The Eagles


"Some of the wilder interpretations of that song have been amazing. It was really about the excesses of American culture and certain girls we knew. But it was also about the uneasy balance between art and commerce.

"It's a song about the dark underbelly of the American Dream, and about excess in America which was something we knew about." ~ Don Henly

Break out the pink champagne and bring your pretty boys along as the Dusk 2 Dawn Blog Train offers up our take this classic Eagles tune. It's the last blast of summer, the chance to get away, and to enjoy all the finer things in life (which none of us can afford).

We look forward to having y'all as a part of our train!

Nette and I figured summer had been done to death (although this is a summery palette) and we wanted to do something a little different with the train, so we hope you will enjoy our choice for the August theme!

Once upon a time....

I'm not a big fan of the ABC show, although I understand Nette is, as are several of the designers participating in the train.  Personally, I prefer Grimm on NBC.  Whichever you prefer - or even if it's neither - you're sure to find something Magical this month as we present to you....

Once Upon a Time...

Here is a preview what you can expect from our Designers!






Toot! Toot! The Dusk 2 Dawn Once Upon a Time Blog Train has left the station! Grab your favorite story book and hop aboard the train for a magical journey of dragons and knight, princess and fairies, heroes and villains!

Our designers have some truly magical goodies for you!

Please remember that all our designers are all in different time zones. If a part is not up, please return later for it. And be sure to leave a little for all our designers hard work when you download! :)

Anything and everything

Hope y'all will join us and enjoy this one as much as we will

Now, without further ado, we present:
The Owl and The Pussycat

Welcome

Hi y'all, and welcome to the inaugural running of the
Dusk 2 Dawn Blog Train

We are sooo very excited to have y'all join us here
for what we hope will be a fantastic first run!
We also decided to stagger it a bit, so we'll be a bimonthly train, departing on the 25th of every other month and hopefully that way we'll be a bit staggered versus other commitments

Briefly, we're Nette of Nette's NightOwl Works &
Dianna of Digicats (& Dogs) fame

To kick things off, we've chosen a theme that's near and dear to us
The Owl and the Pussycat
By Edward Lear
Now, for those that don't know the tale:

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are, you are, you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are."
Pussy said to the Owl "You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing.
O let us be married, too long we have tarried;
But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows,
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose, his nose, his nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.
"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling your ring?"
 Said the Piggy, "I will"
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon.
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand.
They danced by the light of the moon, the moon, the moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.


Anyhoo - LOL
There are plenty of elements that could be incorporated into what we think would be
Just a fabulous kit!

We have a color palette, which the fearless leader here has forgotten to jazz up
So.......I shall return with the palette as soon as I purty it up, so....
Without further ado.....
