Don't leave me this way....I can't survive...can't stay alive...

I love that song. It's in my head from Idol last night, and more importantly it's on the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. For those of you who like music and art and haven't seen that movie, run, RIGHT NOW and go rent it. It's amazing. Hilarious, sad and amazing. I'm probably biased...my husband proposed to me during the middle of it. *wink*


Anywho, here's my color challenge card for this week. My new Serenity set from Verve hasn't gotten as much love as it needs due to lack of stamping time, so I pulled it out and played. I thought it was perfect for this challenge, which was to use Basic Black, River Rock, and White. I subbed Pearlized White, which has a gorgeous shimmer to it, and I'm really happy with how this turned out. Whatcha think?

Tonight we're going to Dave & Busters, which is a grown up arcade with a full restaurant...so that should be fun. Caleb is really excited. And I turn into a crazy woman when I play Skeet Ball. I could just stand there for hours. And they have this machine where two people can sit and it scans your faces and tells you what your kids will look like. Those are veryyyyyy interesting.....

I am going to a Moulin Rouge sing-a-long tonight at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin! What a weird coincidence that you picked today to use that quote! I LOVE that movie! Have fun at D&B tonight! I love that place too. Skeet Ball makes me a crazy woman too. Beautiful card!

this is just beautiful, Shannan! trying to talk myself out of getting this set (and 15% off is a deal not to be passed up, I think I'm caving because of you) *maybe*
