Thankful Thusday Design Team! Family Movie Inspiration

Hi Everybody!  Happy Thankful Thursday!

Welcome to Thankful Thursday!  The challenge this week was to create a project that is your family's favorite movie. Well, my family is all adults and frankly I was not even sure what to create for this project.  The real problem is that I no longer have little ones.  My family movies are not necessarily "family friendly" themed.  Every time I thought of a movie that my family watches and gathers together to enjoy, I just kept coming up with movies like GodFather or Goodfellas.  EEEKS! So I put my thinking cap on that I remember that I used to say this quote to my son when he was younger and I would tickle his feet or shoulders.  Cory would laugh so much and thinking about this cherished was obvious what my project would be.   After all the laughing and giggling my little smartie pants, Cory James,  would remind me that boys are not "pretty" and nor do we have a dog and we would continue to giggle.  As a mother, you can not agrue with that kind of logic!

Here is my project:
My project is inspired by the wonderful family movie "Wizard of Oz" The paper pattern was courtesy of Little Scraps of Heaven Designs from their collection called "Land of Oz"
I printed the quote and placed in a black frame.  I added the floral embellishment as well, I used lime green, ruby red with glitter (inspired by Dorthy's shoes of course!, and yellow (yellow brick road)  I added the last piece...a emerald rhinestone center!
