I wanted to show you another card from my 10/10/20 class, I think I only have them coloring one card, cause there is a lot to do in just a few hours, so I have to keep them simple and pretty.
Stamp Set: Oval All, Elizabeth
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Newsprint DSP, Love Letters DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake
Misc: Riding Hood Red striped ribbon (off the clearance rack), oval punch, scallop oval punch, pearls
Have you seen the new show "Breaking In"? It kind of reminds me of a cross between Leverage and The Office. What do you think? I love me some Christian Slater.
OK American Idol folks here comes my opinion, soooo as I warn you every week, if you have not seen it and don't want me to spoil anything, stop reading now.
Tonight was the Top 8 and they were singing songs from movies.
Steven Tyler makes me laugh with his flamboyant way of dressing, his frilly shirt had like a scarf or something, and every week he wears that necklace with the teeth on it. Love him!
First up was:
Paul – I see he has pants to match that jacket. He may dress like Porter Waggoner, but he sure don't sing or act like him. Someone needs to tell Paul that you don't clap the mike, you could here him banging it as he clapped. If I was at a bar or something and he was up on stage signing and dancing around I would wonder if he was being serious or joking around, he makes me tired watching him. I say bottom three.
Lauren: She looked amazing and sounded amazing. She sang a Miley Cyrus song. Miley who? I loved her high parts and I totally loved the ending where she warbled her voice…is that a word warble?
I am really liking Will I Am as a mentor.
Stefano: Boy he sang his heart out tonight, since he has twice almost been voted off. Once with Casey and last week with Pia (who Jeff says he heard is already cutting a record). I did not know the song that he sang. J-Lo can't even sit still when he sings, she bounces around in her seat like a teenager.
Scotty: Sounded pretty good, I love the George Strait song that he sang, I think the back up singers were too loud, there were times you could not even hear Scotty. He changed the song a bit from the original, this was not his best performance.
Casey: I love that he stuck to his guns and sang what he felt he wanted to sing and he nailed it. I loved the little riffs he did in the song, and I love when he slaps that bass. After he came off stage and was talking to the camera, he looked horrible like he could puke.
Haley: She just rubs me the wrong way. Maybe if I didn't have to look at her she would be ok to listen to…maybe. The song she picked was not good out of all the choices she could have made. I think if she spent more time picking better songs, and less times picking out her clothes and shortening the skirts it would be better. – I say bottom three
Jacob: I love the song he sang, but not the way he sang it. Have you seen the movie Rocky Horror Picture Show? Well Jacob reminds me of the way that Tim Curry sang on the show, very broadway, musical like and I don't think that is American Idol-ish. I think he might be in the bottom three.
James: I loved it, and I love that he knows who he is and wants to be and does not settle or do something he does not believe in, and he rocked the house down and ended the show with a bang and it needed it, cause it was kind of a boring show.
I voted for James, Lauren & Casey
Well this old gal is headed to bed!
Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in.

Love the pretty card! And you are spot on with your assessment of the show last night. It wouldn't surprise me much to see Paul voted off tonight. Those suits are driving me nuts!
I love your cards! I have put off getting Oval all and if it makes it to the next catalog, it is mine! I so love reading your blog!! I so agree with you on the AI picks.. and my hubby and I agree and disagree and it is so fun to get someone else's opinion… you and I are in agreement!! Until tonight… can't wait!

I agree with your Am Idol reviews. Paul and Haley both need to go home. Loren was amazing and beautiful in a Carrie Underwood sort of way. She reminds me a little of her. Jacob will probably be in the bottom 3 too. Stephano is good, but maybe not American Idol good when compared to Loren and James. James rocked the house! Love that boy! Love your card, too, BTW! Thanks for your blog. A great way to start my day!

Carey and Roscoe
Di, I did not get to watch Am. Idol last night as my DH and I went out to eat w/another couple and did not get back until it was over with. Thanks for your synopsis of last night. There was live music where we ate (a new Italian place) and those guys were awesome, so it worth giving up Idol for sure. They sang alot of the Eagle songs,plus so many more popular songs that I loved from the 80s, 90s and even some of this decade! We do not have that record function that most people have, so I will watch the voting off show tonight.
Love that card you made for your 10/10/20 workshop. I know they will as well.
Love your card…makes me think I should have ordered the "Elizabeth" stamp on SAB when I could have had it for free!! We love the show "Breaking In"!!! Such FUN!! I'm usually laughing so hard I miss some jokes! Idol was kind of boring and Casey made me uncomfortable watching him afterwards…I was worried he was going to pass out. I always look forward to your take on the show!! mega hugs~
James, Casey, Haley…not necessarily in that order!!
Totally agree with your Idol stuff. My hubby says Hayley's dresses are fine LOL
I love to read your Idol reviews each week! They always match up with mine and I love your descriptions. Sure hope we are right this week. Oh yeah, your card is very pretty too! 🙂
Dee in N.H. says
OMG! Did you just hear Hailey?! I just had to come here and say that if she brought it like that all the time she would never be sitting in the bottom 3! If she doesn't go home tonight, she needs to pick her songs better because evidently she can sing after all! LOL!
At Vicki's and I know who got voted off! haven't been watching it though so I'm not sure if it is a good or bad thing
I have watched Breaking In but I'm still not sure about it. I loved Christian Slater in his last 2 tv shows, My Own Worst Enemy and The Forgotten. Guess I will have to watch Breaking In a few more times to see if it grows on me.
