Paper Temptress Treasure Hunt!! Let's Hop!!

Welcome to the next stop of the Paper Temptress' Treasure Hunt!! Today I am featuring Patricia's Astro Bright Fireball Fuchsia paper. I LOVE the brightly saturated color of this paper. When I first saw it I was reminded of the show "Grease Lighting" and the "Pink Ladies"... HA!! Then I thought, why not have a "Let's go to the Hop" card!! As you may recall, most "sock hops" were held in the gym over the basketball court. I used Melanie Muenchinger's "Sporty Accessories" for the pennant and her "School, Sports, Spirit" for the jacket. For the dress, I used Rupa Shevde's "Retro Boutique". My background was created using my Cuttlebug and the "Allegro" embossing folder. I apologize for the photo not being it's best. I was at my shop tonight and late into the evening three ladies came in and wanted to hold a "class". That was fine except I had no card planned so I was scampering. I got everything done and everyone out by 9:30 PM (normally close at 9)... stopped to get my daughter something to eat and got home about 10:00 PM only to realize I left my camera there!! Ugh! I promise your next picture will be MUCH MUCH better!! So, you need a letter, I think, right? Well... how does "R" sound? ROCK & ROLL... "let's go to the hop"!!! Head on over to the Paper Temptress site for your next letter! Have fun and good luck!! Signature

What a perfect color to pick for a sock hop! I immediately thought of the movie "Grease" with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. And wasn't that the color of those sticky icky hair rollers we used to use and tried to sleep on? OUCH!!!! Glad those are gone! It is a really cute card! Thanks for sharing it.
