Summer Of Color - Pretty In Pink

Loved loved doing this fluffy frilly pretty pink piece for the Summer Of Color challenge. I used to listen to a band called the Psychedelic Furs and my favorite song was called Pretty In Pink. I got to use some of my thrift store finds like the crepe paper and cellophane twist. I also got to use Shimmerz Ruby Spritz which I love!!! I sprayed the crepe paper with it. Thank you for sending me this Stacey! Can't wait to see what you all do!

On a side note we watched Second Hand Lions for about the 5th time. If it's on we both seem unable to turn it off. A real tug at heart strings movie. They have a dog in this movie that I love. It's a french bulldog and I took a picture of the TV to show you. Sooo ugly it's cute. I keep telling Steve that that is what I want for my birthday. Really really want for my birthday! I added the little bulldog that can't get up video. It just makes me laugh every time I've seen it!
