Have you ever had one of those days where you just want to blow it off and say "Whatever!" ??
Well, Cinema Saturday has given me perfect opportunity to make a card for "one of those days"
This weeks film is:

So, although plaid isn't one of my favorite patterns, and I had to dig through my papers to find one (just not enough time this week to make one!). I knew just what I wanted to feature from the movie and how I wanted to lay it out. Again, I took inspiration from a quote, albeit a very short one; I crack up everytime the snooty character Amber holds up her thumbs and index fingers to make a "W" (see pic below) and says oh-so-haughtily, "Whatever!" My SIL and I enjoy using this whenever needed (or not!).

I used a lot of blue (it's calming), a splash of bright pink (it's sassy), some plaid (it's Cher), some glitter (hello, Beverly Hills!), white organdy ribbon (it's sweet), and a little askewedness ("whatever!"). All things reflected in the fabulous comedy by Amy Heckerling we call "Clueless".


Enjoy, and don't forget, if things aren't going your way: Whatever, just look on the bright side, and if you don't see the bright side, find it!
Happy Valentine's Day friends!

I {heart} Seattle


This week over at Cinema Saturday they are "showing" a great film:
I am so excited for this week's challenge, and can't believe it took me this long to get my project done and posted! There is a lot that inspires me in this movie: the fun and charming soundtrack, the oh-so-romantic story, my favorite quote/scene:
Doctor Marcia Fieldstone: Tell me what was so special about your wife?
Sam Baldwin: Well, how long is your program? Well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together... and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home... only to no home I'd ever known... I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like... magic.

And of course, the native Seattlite in me loves to see "my" city in the film. So, I combined the scenes I love with the quote referring to the idea of love being home and vice/versa, which is exactly how I feel about my hubby and kids.
The pictures in this page were actually taken at the same beach where Sam & Jonah boat over to in the movie -it's out on Alki Point, but we lovingly refer to it as "Sea Glass Beach", as we always seem to find sea glass on our visits out there. It's a favorite place for us to visit together, whether rain or shine.

I used: Pacific Point, Real Red, and Whisper White c/s; Real Red Craft ink, Chipboard, MDS

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
