Cinema Saturday plus some others!!

First of all, very sorry for the crappy, blurry photo. *sigh* But anyway... I have one whopper of a challenge card for you today!!! First and foremost, it's my card for the latest Cinema Saturday challenge - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!! Of course I *loved* the original Willie Wonka movie and saw it about a gazillion times growing up. And I was soooo excited when I heard they were remaking it, and that none other than my one true love Johnny Depp would be in it!! (Oops, sorry Joel, I mean my second true love? Hmm. Probably still bad. Let's just say he's my favorite actor and leave it at that!) And while I did like the remake, I have to say the original is still my favorite. So this is my card inspired by the movie(s). I just went with the general chocolate theme, not focusing on any particular aspect of the movie. The images are from Stampin' Up's long-retired Oh So Sweet set (which I still LOVE!) and that awesome sentiment is from AMuse. This week's challenge had the added rule that we were to use BRIGHT COLORS. I think I achieved that. Yes? The colors are actually Dawn McVey's brand new color challenge. How fun to play along with a challenge right from the get-go, starting in Week 1! I wonder if I'll be able to be a regular? We shall see! But as for the Cinema Saturday rule - I thought using a plethora of different polka dots also added to the general "brightness" (or shall I say craziness?) of the card! You all know I love polka dots. I think this may be a new record for the amount of different ones on one card!!?? LOL! I played another challenge too - the sketch is this week's Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast! It's a fun one! The chocolates have clear Glaze pen on them for shine, and Star Dust Stickles on the papers. My stitching is crooked, but so be it. ;-) And finally, I also made this for Jennifer Tapler's blog candy challenge. It's Jen's 1-year blogoversary, and she is doing something really special - gathering cards to use in an auction to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Sadly, Jennifer's father has been afflicted with this horrible, scary disease. The blog candy she's gathered is YUMMY to say the least, so go and check it out!! And thanks for stopping by today!

  11. oohhhh!!! Orange AND sparkly- does it get any better??? I love the card, it is so festive- perfect for bdays and the auction. I think I will try and make one for that too, since it is such a good cause.
    Oh, and, unfortunately for my family (I tend to embarass the kids a lot,) I am that goofy in real life. Except when you first meet me, then I am incredibly shy. After awhile, I come out of my shell. That's usually when I get a lot of eye rolling and "oh jeez, here she goes again"!!!
    I am glad I crack you up- usually I am the only one laughing!! Your blog cracks me up a lot of the time too and it always leaves me with a smile. I really enjoy your work and your posts.
    It's so crazy to me, this blogging stuff, cuz I feel like I know you- I have been reading your blog since before Courtney was born!! Nuts, I tell ya, just nuts!!
    Have a great day!!!
