Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you all here in the US (and Canada I think too) are enjoying the 3 day weekend! I am my parent’s house thru Sunday evening for the holiday weekend since its been ages since we’ve been done for more than a few hours at a time (yes mom I see you nodding your head lol)! The boys are going to see an Air Show at Patuxent Naval Base, if you’ve never seen the Blue Angels fly it is something to remember for sure! I grew up near the bases including Andrews Air Force Base so I got to see them fly and practice near where we lived and it was always exciting. The girls are going to see Blake Shelton & Chris Young in concert Sunday evening and I CANNOT WAIT!! Whoo hooo you will hear me hollering for sure Last night hubby and I were SUPPOSED to have date night to go to dinner and see “The Help” (yes I made him go, lol, cuz it was my fave book from last year) BUT PLANS CHANGED! I swear my teens are like attached to my hip—worse than when they were small—aren’t teens supposed to NOT wanna be with their parents? Somehow a party of two turned into a party of 6!! LOL! Each of the kids brought a friend to dinner, the football game and then the movies. Riley and his friend saw “Planet of the Apes” and the rest of us saw “The Help”---so not really a romantic date night for us! Hubby actually really enjoyed the movie, the girls cried (I didn’t cuz I’m not much of a crier and I had read the book) but I think the movie was EXCELLENT and definitely stands on its own. There was a man behind us who fell asleep and SNORED thru the whole movie—only a man would do that LOL! Big Kudos to the two fabulous ladies who played Abilene & Minnie—they were fabulous. And yes I see a bit of myself in Skeeter played by the brilliant Emma Stone (she was fab in Crazy, Stupid, Love too). And if you haven’t read the book or seen the movie—beware of Chocolate Pie—and that’s all I’m saying <giggle>!

The beautiful image is another fabulous one by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD “Peekers 2 Collection” called “Bubble Bath Peeker”—isn’t she adorable! The papers are from Best Creations “Bird Song” – these paper pads are triple the size of other 6x6 pads and have both double sided and glitter papers, I just love ‘em! The dies behind the image and swirls are Marianne Designs dies as is the black flower that I mounted on a Prima and topped with a bow, black flower and Bella Bauble. I added a nice coat of Diamond Glaze to the tub to make it shiny! The bath bubbles got a mix of Stickles and Diamond Glaze.
