Kickin' It In Heels

The college kids that came over for hot dogs and movie night last week had a great time as did I. My task of getting them to watch one of my favorite movies is complete. None of them had ever seen it before. They loved The Bird Cage and laughed all the way through it. The evening started with a game of dodge ball in the back yard. Needless to say - I was the cheering photographer not a participant!

Kick Ball!

 Thank goodness for quilts!

What is it about the BUTTON BOWL?

And now for a card. The shoe was part of a card from niece Linda. I couldn't NOT use the beaded shoe - so consider it re-purposed!
