So you think you can dance?

I think I can dance! I may look like I'm convulsing, but I'm having a good time doing it! LOL I'm SOOO excited for Sunday evening! I'm headed off to see the "So You Think You Can Dance" live tour...WOOOOOO!!! It's a show that aired earlier this year kind of similar to Dancing With the Stars...except, no celebrities, just hardcore dancers. LOVE IT! As a matter of fact, I dubbed my own little saying. "When life's got you stressed, just do a bodyroll!" Child driving you nuts? Bodyroll! Uncomfortable silence around friends? Bodyroll! You get my drift. Either way, it's going to bring some laughter and definitely lighten the mood. I've even taught my son to do it...poor soul! :)

On another note, I'm getting into these challenges! A friend/customer of mine just had a baby girl and I need to make her a cute baby card. I took advantage of Taylor's Cupcake Challenge and this is what I came up with.


This was tons of fun to make. My favorite was mixing white craft ink with Bashful Blue re-inker to make a swirly ocean. Was a bit messy, but whatever! I also cut out a tiny flower from the Sweet Always dsp (the bottom circle to be exact) and put that up on the sail. Thanks for the challenge Taylor!

WOW -- wonderful card -- love all the textures --

I totally agree with you -- SU needs to come out with some embossing folders to go with their Big Shot. :)

Hey, Melissa,

Love your " body roll" advise. Maybe you should post a small video clip for training ! :-)
