Pretty Woman is an all-time movie favorite of mine and this week, this film is the featured challenge in celebration of their 50th challenge at Cinema Saturday -- a new spot I've come to via a Gina K link as she is their special guest designer this week. I have been a long-time admirer of Gina K and have enjoyed watching her grow in the exploration of her talents as she spreads her love and generosity. Following Gina, has lead me to great videos, ideas, and wonderful bloggers. I think Gina K is a "Pretty Woman" - inside and out. The Cinema Saturday challenge: use the movie Pretty Woman and explain what it inspired in your creation using paper piecing. You can see the design team's inspired contributions here. Congratulations on 50!!

My contribution is "Achieve" -- In the movie, Pretty Woman -- self respect and self worth were to be achieved (not to mention the prince in shining armor.) I haven't seen this movie in years but the lines I always remember with a smile are the ones delivered to the snobby dress shop sales lady: "Remember me? -- Big Mistake." The day before Vivian was treated with distain at the shop. After telling Edward of her treatment, he sent her out the next day with assistance, and after an adventure in shopping and with many packages in tow, she came back into the dress shop and inquired, "Remember me?" -- and said, "Big Mistake." This image by Rubber Stampede, exudes self-confidence and achievement, you can just image this as Vivian with package carriers behind her. Other stuff: glossy black swirls – Sizzix, flowers – Stampendous, cuttlebug panel, crystal gems, foam dots, and copper metallic panels. Thanks for coming to visit!
