Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - #15 - Casablanca

We are trying something new this week..

If you are luck enough to find that one person in your life that is your everything... then it only gets better... "As Time Goes By"... We will be celebrating our 18th anniversary this March... Where did the time fly...  Some time people don't know how lucky they are and how good they have it... Well I know how luck I am and how good I have it... I have been blessed to have an amazing Best friend and husband in my life.. He is a much better person that I... He is very compassionate, forgives easily, Romantic, trusting of others, hardworking, long suffering, Service oriented, A great spiritual Leader, Complimentary, Friend, has great taste in Movies, Great dad, Great Partner, Great Husband and the list goes on and on......

It's kinda of Ironic that one of our favorite television programs we have watch together for about 13 years know is called "As Time Goes By" staring Dame Judy Dench... 

Movie song:

Info on movie:

I really should have saved this for our anniversary... SO I will say a early 
To my eternal sweetheart...
For the flower I used the Layered flower die-cut from Stampin'Up I am really getting my money out of this die... I LOVE IT!!! I love being able to cute all three colors(layers) out at once it' a real time saver.. I love flexibility of the Big shots.. It helps you really customize your projects... Most of the girls in my neighborhood have switched to the "Cricut" and are not to interested in buying another system... My DH surprised me with a "Cricut Expressions" last Christmas.. I have purchased a dozen cartridges and only used it for 2 projects..... and I need a new cutting mat... Granted they were Club projects... Sense I received the "BIG SHOT" from Stampin' Up  for Christmas this year I have used it a dozen times and on huge projects like neighbor gifts and club projects... I can't wait to use other products with my Big shot like Fabric, Sand paper, Felt, You name it.. It can cut it...
I don't know if you are like me but... When I am in the finishing mode of a project is when It all just starts coming all together.. I start adding little things here and there.... And it just all starts to sing...
Just a little more sweet loving... If you look closely you can see a corsage pin... So just imaging that this ribbon and bow are the corsage of the project. 

I framed the final project in a shadow box from IKEA...  So I can hang it in my studio... 
Have fun creating you challenge projects...
