For the LOVE of "Crystal Effects".... I love using Crystal Effects. I squeezed a little crystal effects on a piece of paper and used my paper piercer to color in the letters of LOVE with Crystal Effects. 

This movie hit the big screen 22 November 1991 (USA)  the year we were married.. So we thought it would be fun to take out niece. He mom told us this was the first movie she had ever seen. She was only 2 years old. She did amazing.. Better that our kids have ever done at the movies..  I think the musical number "Be Our Guest" os the biggest show toon number ever done.. What magic that was... Who new that silverware and dishes were so musical... A few years ago we say the broadway version at the Tuacahn Theater here in Utah.. This is a outdoor theater that looks onto the "redrocks" of the desert.. The best thing about having it outside....they get to use live animals, like horse drawn carriages and ride on horses.. Their stage incorporates the mountain side so you get to see then entering into the scene in the far on horses. The heat was insane that night when we finished watching the production it was still over 100F at 10:30 p.m.  The poor guy that had to wear the beast outfit...I...I...I... We peeked over the stage on a break and he had the top of the costume off and was sweating buckets...  The other great part about outside was they used real fireworks in the production... REALLY COOL.... My DS just watched "FOOTLOOSE" at the Tuacahn last night.. Kinda funny because it was originally filmed here in Utah and the Flour mill is just down few miles away. For my card I new I didn't want to make a cartoon image.. I always had a rose and this image in mind.. I also thought it would be fun to incorporate Julee's Mojo monday sketch as well. This is also a dedication to my favorite in-color that is leaving the end of June from the current Stampin' Up catalog... I {Heart} you Riding Hood Red

Have fun and good luck winning the Blogs Candy!
