Like so many, I was saddened to hear of the passing of John Hughes, who directed some of my all-time favorite 80's movies. My absolute favorite of his is Pretty in Pink, which I still enjoy watching when I get the chance. And so that is today's movie, which is intended to inspire your card.
I also loved this movie. Molly as Andie, and I am still enjoying watching Jon Cryer in 2 1/2 Men every night in reruns. He was so good as Duckie.
I thought this picture of the two little ones in their pink high tops was just the perfect fit for this challenge. I can just picture Molly Ringwald in these shoes. I made this into a photo card. The card itself has a built in easel. You just attach your photo, etc. onto the front of the easel. I hope you enjoy looking as much as I loved making it. Thanks to little Nat and Maddie for being my models today. It really looks so much better then the picture shows. The lighting this afternoon was terrible.

I'm sorry but I do not know who the DP is by, it was found in some that I had just recently found stashed back in a cabinet. The butterfly is cut using the Cricut, Home Accents cartridge. It was cut from Best Occasions Pearl Pack. You can't hardly see it, but I do have a diamond shaped cutout on top of the striped middle piece. It and the butterfly both was adhered with 3D dots. Instead of adding ribbon to extend down below the strip across the middle, I let the butterfly's wings do the job. I had to add a little bling, so added some stick on pearls from MS to the butterfly's body. Thanks for looking. Don't forget to go check out Pat's Saturday Night challenge this week.

Well I am off to make Allan a orange pound cake like his Grandmother used to make. Yeah right, like I will be able to do that. Talk about a challenge.

Honestly, I didn't copy Robyn, we both just happen to have the same inspiration, M & M's, the peanut kind of course. I made this card for my Mom, since she has been a little under the weather. (Thanks for all the prayers). I used the major colors of the package, brown and yellow. I used the Cricut cartridge, George and Basic Shapes, to cut my yellow flowers, in graduated sizes. I rolled the tips of all of them with a pencil, adhered the layers together, then used little buttons, trying to use the same colors of M&M's that are found in the package. The little rub-on, You are My Sunshine, is one that I found laying on my desk. This challenge was simple quick and fun. Thanks Pat.
And to finish up, I will treat you with a couple of pictures of Miss Flossie Mae, that Allan happened to take tonight. She just loves to help me with my organization skills, as you can see in the 2nd picture. Since she was an orphan kitten, we don't really have her date of birth, so we will celebrate it on Aug. 27th. That is the day of 2008, that I brought home under the hood of my car. Yep she will be officially a member of our family for 1 whole year. She has grown so much. She isn't as loving as I would like for her to be. She definitely isn't a lap cat, except when she wants to be scratched. She has a persnickety personality. Have a good weekend, and remember to eat lots and lots of your favorite candy. Some of you might already know about the Mars Candy web site, that gives away free candy bars, but here it is for those of you that don't know about it. I got this coupon just today. https://secure.realchocolate.com/default.aspx

This is my DH and a few others. After the cupcakes he disappeared. I went inside, he was in the recliner snoozing. Nothing was going to interrupt his Sunday afternoon nap.The cupcakes before the kids got to them.This is a close up showing the little K&Company embellies that I stuck on tooth picks for toppers.This one shows the birthday girl, getting ready to blow out the candle. This was so much easier then messing with cake and ice cream. It was in the high 80'sFirst biteThe birthday girl and her BFF.The treat bags, I put together. I used a MS punch to do the border where the bag is folded down. then used a conglomeration of different stickers that I had. Again thanks for looking today.

The first picture shows the kit. The covers were see through so On the front that shows through the transparency, I put a butterfly. On top of the transparency, I put a tag with Madison's initials on it and put the tag on the ring also. I added a little butterfly charm to the upper binder ring. The kit had some stickers to put on the holder pages themselves. The ones used on the front and inside pages was some I had stashed away. I finished it off with ribbon attached to all three rings. Now I am off to make 14 treat bags, and a bunch of cupcakes. I made a banner also that I will share tomorrow morning. Thanks for spending some time on my blog today.
