You Ought to be in Pictures...

I would like to start off this post by asking everyone to please make the rain go away! Today is the Butterfly Festival and I have been looking forward to it all year and this rain is really getting on my nerves! Any help would be greatly appreciated...Thank you!

So, here is my take on this week's Partnership Challenge between Sketchy Thursdays andScrapFit. I love playing along with both sites, so this was a lot of fun being able to combine challenges. :)

I have had this film strip overlay for quite some time. When I saw this sketch, my first thought was sunshine, sunrise, something like that. But then I imagined those big searchlights that they always have outside movie premieres or theaters. I used to live near downtown Chicago, so on a clear night, we could walk up the hill to see these searchlights if there was a big event downtown.
Anyway, a year or two ago, we had pizza and a movie night at a friend's house. I can't remember what the actual movie was, the kids were there so I'm going to assume it was a Disney
We had popcorn and pizza and the adults had margaritas while the kids had kiddie cocktails. I wish I had more pictures of that night, but sometimes people just don't get it when I take pictures Taking pictures of everyone sitting around watching a movie is just crazy! Who does that??!! Umm....a true scrapbooker, that's who! So even though I have no pictures of my friends, I know we had a great night hanging out with them. I want to host this time! Then I know I will get pictures! lol
I broke out some of my older stickers for this page. The Paper Variety challenged us to use lots of stickers this week. I still have a stash from when Mrs. Grossman's was really popular. The movie reels and "clackers" (whatever they are finally found a way to be useful.
The best part was going through the huge stash of letter stickers again. I find some awesome fonts in there from time to time! I need to get over my addiction to Thickers and use these more often!

Anyway....keep saying those prayers and happy thoughts that the rain will stop! Thanks!
