There are Worse Things I Could Do

I have at least four projects I need to complete like yesterday, so naturally the other morning I found myself looking at the new CDAC challenges and ended up spending much of the day having a blast with their Embellishment Challenge (and its freebie!) sponsored by Stamp-n-doodle. The card just came together all at once, but it then took me a few days to complete this post!

The challenge is to "fill your project with embellishments - pinks, purples, glitter, flowers, break out your faux pearls, shiny stones, etc." and I'm not sure how well my card applies to the challenge...but this is where my ideas took me. Oh, and I don't have many of the aforementioned embellishments, which was also a major issue!

Hopefully this sweet poodle skirt (dress?) cut file counts as an embellishment! As soon as I saw this image by Stamp-n-doodle, I just knew I wanted to cut some poodle skirts! I can't believe this beautiful file was a freebie; I edited it just a bit, in that I cut a separate poodle (I had to cut out the path points on the leash in SCAL...there's gotta be an easier way?) and put a slight "shadow" on the leash to make it a bit easier to cut out.

This wonderful image put me in my mind of the first Grease movie; if you've ever done much local theater, no doubt you've seen a version or two of the musical. My favorite song is "There are Worse Things I Could Do": "...I could hurt someone like me / out of spite or jealously. / I don't steal and I don't lie / but I can feel and I cry, / a fact I bet you never knew. / But to cry in front of you... / That's the worst thing I could do." Rizzo always seemed to me as a slightly better role model for the young woman than Sandra Dee's hopeless devotion, in the grand scheme of things.
