Pretty in Pink

I have had a picture of the 2 little granddaughters for a couple of months, and was saving showing it, because I wanted to do something special with it. Pam at 365 gave me the opportunity this morning in her challenge for the day.

Today's Challenge:
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.
