What Time is it?

My daughter's favorite answer to this is: "Summer time! It's our vay-cay-tion!" as a tribute to High School Musical 2. We love to play this after school lets out, which it finally did last Thursday -woohoo!
I now find myself asking this several times a day, simply because, I have no clue.
Baby #3 made her debut almost 2 weeks ago (a few weeks early) -and I am starting to remember how this whole lack of sleep thing works. :)
Hopefully, as we all get a little more adjusted I'll be blogging a bit more regularly, and getting back to more challenges. I've missed doing them the past few weeks -especially when Cinema Saturday did High School Musical (1-3). I will do one for myself along with my daughter just for the whole fun of it anyways when time allows.
Hope you are all enjoying Summer!!
Be back soon!

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #35 -Some Like it Hot



Well, it's true...Some like it hot, but boy am I glad it's cooled down around here. I'm getting a little tired of the swollen feet and ankles! :) I do really enjoy this movie though...I think this was the movie that encouraged me to try more black and white classics. It is just hysterical -I just love both Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in this. The requirements for the project this week was to use lace and/or ruffles. Here is what I came up with:

I went with a little take on the "goodie in a garter" that seemed to keep popping up in the movie -be it a flask or something else, and incorporated a modified quote from Josephine/Tony Curtis in regards to Sugar's/Marilyn Monroe story about always getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop.
I gathered 2 kinds/sizes of ribbons with needle and thread, and made some "paper lace" using c/s and punches.
Here is the supply list:
Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red cardstocks, SU! Passing Notes font, White Wide organza ribbon (SU! retired), Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon, punches: Scallop Circle, Scallop Edge, 1.25" circle, 1/8" & 1/16" hand-held, Pop-up glue dots, and lots of Sticky Strip.
Come play -it's fun and rather addicting!
Have a great weekend!
