Rabbit - 0917 is sitting atop a diecut bicycle. The cute little clouds are Hambo, too. Clouds - 3407 to be exact. And the message is Get This Party Started - 2706. I used my watercolor paints to add color to the bunny & the clouds. And that watercolored starburst pattern - the reason I did that was because I was inspired by the movie poster for the film I chose. Can you guess which Kevin Bacon movie this is?? Going way back to 1986, it's Quicksilver!!
I couldn't actually decide which movie to do. I immediately thought of The Greatest Kevin Bacon Movie of All Time, Footloose, but I was worried everyone would choose that. Then Monica reminded me that he was in a movie about bikes. So of course I had to pick the bike movie. HELLO! (If you don't know me - I like bikes.)
And now I shall ramble on for a moment - feel free to skip this paragraph if you'd like! ;-) It's kind of funny that I couldn't think of a Kevin Bacon movie to do, because he's famous for being in sooooo many movies! Remember the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game?! My brother reminded me about The Oracle of Bacon - a site that uses IMDb to figure out the link from any actor to Kevin Bacon! This site has been around for soooo long but it's still there, generating Bacon numbers. In case you ever have a Bacon emergency and just HAVE TO KNOW! And you know what? I'm not in IMDb, but I *was* an extra in a movie once!! My husband and I sat in a Texas high school football stadium for the better part of a night while they filmed the movie Varsity Blues! James Van Der Beek was there. Jon Voight was there. So yes, I was TOTALLY in a movie with Jon Voight! I plugged him into the Oracle and got a Bacon Number of 2. Jon Voight was in Zoolander with Endre Hules (who??), who was in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon!! And I was in a movie with Jon Voight, so MY BACON NUMBER IS 3! I rock. Heh.
Ok enough of that nonsense, you've got some hoppin' to do!!! There's a prize involved!! Hambo is giving away a $15 shopping spree to their digi store to one lucky person who comments on every blog along the hop.

Did you ever see the movie Quicksilver? Did you like it? I actually never did! Or if I did I don't remember because, you know, 1986 was ages ago. Maybe I should check it out sometime. If you remember it, let me know what you think down there in the comments!
