I "Heart" Theater!

Don't you just love the movies?  This card was fun to put together once I came up with the idea.  I used this week's sketch from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.  Gotta love em for the inspiration they bring.  Thanks gals!  Creating this card triggered memories of all the phases I have been through with regards to theater.
  • Riding in my aunt Cherrie's car to the movies with all the cousins, taking turns sticking our heads out the sun roof.
  • The first movie I saw without my parents was Look Who's Talking. The beginning was pretty risque and embarrassing for my age.
  • Ditching my mom to sit with a friend for Jurassic Park.  (Poor mother dear was totally freaked!)
  • Edgar Allen Poe The Raven at Gammage.  (English geek, yes I am.)
  • Titanic in the old Payson theater.
  • Driving to Superstition with my older than high-school beau (now hubby) for a flick and a mall crawl.
  • Renting movies and getting Papa Murphy's every weekend in Washington State.
  • My virgin musical, Wicked.  Got hooked, saw Lion King & Little Shop of Horrors.  (Side story: Until the playbill was in my hand, I thought I was seeing "The Little Shop of Whores" about a man-eating plant. Hahahahaha!)
  • Now movies are a. . . well, a delicacy to be savored when allowed the pleasure.

Isn't that fun when crafting helps you reminisce?  Maybe that's why I love this card so much.  Or maybe it's the awesome paper.  Don't you love Graphic 45?  I handmade the silk flower and customized the center beads to coordinate with the papers.  I used a cool curved stictch on my sewing machine to soften the straight edges.  Really I let the paper do the walking.  :)

 Thanks for stopping by.  Just think...tomorrow is Friday!  Celebrate!

Holly...this card is not just is filled with excitement-pizazz-thrilling-and entertaining. Looking at this is like experiencing the re-invention of card making. Marlene Dietrich would be who comes to mind in this presentation as she was always reinventing herself during her career. How utterly brilliant and vivacious this is. You have got it going on Girl and your blog read with this is the piece d'resistance! Filled with wonderful fabulous memories! Thank you for playing along with us this week at Midnight Madness. It was an absolute delight to visit and see this stunning piece of work.

Bear Hugs,
