A Little Dream (Cinema Saturday Guest Designer)...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

Last week, I was lucky enough to be chosen as the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge Guest Designer for today's movie, which is a fun fave -- Legally Blonde! The funny thing was that the night before the day I'd set aside to work on the project, the movie aired on television and I had a chance to watch it again. (It's actually a great chick flick because even my husband likes watching it!) I love how Elle Woods goes for what she wants, with a plucky attitude and a winning personality. The other star of the movie is Bruiser Woods, her adorable chihuahua. My little boy has a beloved stuffed chihuahua (a gift from his Nana), quite possibly the ugliest toy in the universe (no offense, chihuahua-lovers of the world). It is so bizarre people actually stop us on the street to comment. So, naturally, the "star" of my card had to be an homage to this tiny canine.
I don't have any chihuahua stamps, so I decided to draw my own, using my little guy's as a model. Using a light table, I traced the image a second time so that I could pop it out over the big juicy bone I thought would be the perfect "dream." The encouraging sentiment -- the challenge requirement this week -- was created on a computer, but it originates from a Stampin' Up stamp called Happiness Always. Wanting to keep things simple, I stuck with plain shades of pink (of course!) with just a few brads and a bright ribbon to finish off.
