Flowers For You

Hey there! Thanks for stopping in today. TGIF!!! Today is "popcorn day" for me. I'm heading to the school this morning to pop popcorn for the elementary school. It's my last "volunteer" thing for the school year. Woohoo. It's really a pretty easy fundraiser. I've affectionately become known as " The Popcorn Lady." ( there are worse things to be called, I guess) The perks are: 1. I always know that I have a secure future working for a movie theatre 2. The kids LOVE me 3. My husband loves popcorn and me smelling like it, well....let's just say it isn't a bad thing;)

Speaking of movies, I have been to the theatre 3 times in a month and TWO of those movies were actually "adult films." No, not like THAT! I just mean they didn't have animated characters. I really can't remember the last time I have been to the theatre for something over the age of PG-13.

So let me give you my review:

1. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.....wait for DVD

2. Angels and Demons....this was really entertaining for me. I enjoyed it and it's not really
"my kind of movie." It's worth a trip to the theatre.

3. UP...... this is a MUST SEE. Such a sweet, emotional, funny story. Believe it or not, it may make you cry. This was my favorite flick out of the three. I guess I should just stick to the animated films. I'm really just a kid at heart anyways.

Ok, that's my week in review. Now onto my card. Super simple best describes this card.

I got this digital paper for free last week when I donated to the "Stamp Out Alheimer's" fun. I got several free things. I wish I had been able to have more fun with that great fundraiser, but free digital paper was a bonus. My family has been affected by this awful disease. It's hard to witness on all levels. This event raised over $6,000! This paper was called Flip Flop. I was unable to locate it. The website is Sweet Shoppe Designs. They have some cute digital paper. I have a few other things to point out. I used Shimmerz on the flowers that were stamped twice and cut out. I also added stickles to each flower center on the DP. This card took about 30 minutes to make. The longest part was waiting for the stickles to dry and I didn't do such a great job of that:) I also embossed the white base with my cuttlebug just along the bottom edge.

I think I've jabbered enough this morning. Hope you have a beautiful day!

I'm impressed you've made it to three movies this month...I've never even heard of them so you are way ahead of me! I'm sure many in the school will be enjoying popcorn today. I always like it when the kids bring their leftovers home for me. I couldn't volunteer because I would eat the profits! Have a great weekend! Annie

Lovely card. Is yellow one of your favorite colors? Bright and cheery it is.

Three movies! I have been to three in the last year! 2 of which in the last two months..Night at the Museum Smithsonian and Hannah Montana Movie...not quite adult films but not cartoons either.

Can't wait to see your next creation. I am off to try to create. Maybe I should try yellow..I have a hard time using that color.
