Default MAY10VSNL ~ Saturday, May 29, 6 PM EDT ~ Singin in the Rain

Title: Singin' in the Rain
Hostess: Adelle (Adelle)
Keyword: MAY10VSNL
Day/Date: Saturday, May 29, 2010
Time: 6:00 PM (EST)


Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-dloo-doo-doo-doo-doo...

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin',
Singin' in the rain

Dancin' in the rain
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
I'm happy again!
I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain!

I'm dancin' and singin' in the rain...
[ADDITIONAL VERSE]
Why am I smiling
And why do I sing?
Why does September
Seem sunny as spring?
Why do I get up
Each morning and start?
Happy and head up
With joy in my heart
Why is each new task
A trifle to do?
Because I am living
A life full of you.

Gene Kelly sang this song, Singin' in the Rain, in the 1952 musical by the same name. You can see it HERE.

My challenge to you is to make a card inspired by either the lyrics or the video.



Visit the Singin in the Rain gallery here.

View my sample HERE or in the attachment below.



1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON MONDAY, MAY 31, 2010
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, MAY10VSNL, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen.

Good work so far you guys. About five minutes ago, there was a hugs clap of thunder and the sky opened up. No one's singing out there today. Perfect day to stay in and stamp.

Love Gene Kelly! Now, I already made a card for an earlier challenge that fits this one. Look at this one.

But I will try to come up with another one! But am going to bed now. I have 5 cards left and will do them tomorrow. We aren't supposed to upload photos tomorrow, but can we on Monday since it is a holiday? Or can we upload photos tomorrow since it is VSN?

Thank you for the challenge Adelle.

That card would have been perfect for this challenge. It's great no matter what. Don't know for sure, but I think they make an exception to the Sunday upload rule for VSN. I'm sure I did before I was a fan club member. I'll ask.

Great challenge. I have been having this song in my head all morning. I decided to combine this challenge with today's Featured Stamper Challenge. Emily is a CAS kind of girl...so here is a CAS card.

Dancing chick

Thanks for hosting a great challenge!
Hugs and smiles

(3 more challenge cards and I would have made a card for each VSN challenge. I might make it! )

Now I can't get that song out of my head!
Thanks for a fun challenge, Adelle. Living here in the very rainy Seattle area I absolutely had to do this challenge. You might as well sing and be happy if it is going to rain no matter what you do

Have a happy Sunday, everyone.

Very cool theme. I love this movie; it's one of those that you can watch and re-watch.

My mind went in a slightly different direction on this one, I only had one stamp that had an umbrella on it, and I thought of the Bob Dylan quote, "Some people feel the rain, others just get wet!" It sure made sense in my mind! Singing in the rain -> singers talking about rain -> Bob Dylan!

Here's mine: Others Get Wet

Okay, I went back and read that it is EST...yikes...guess I'm done for VSN this time around, again! Had fun with the couple things I did...
can't wait to go look at the galleries with a cup of steaming tea!

(and then I'll go work on my calendar page for June...I was hoping to use it for one of the challenges)
so many of the challenges will work together now as inspiration triggers. Thanks for putting it on...even though I didn't get to participate 'live time'. I love all the ideas that run through my mind as I read the challenges...stamp sets that spring to mind, embelleshments tucked away, techniques that might capture the feeling of the challenge...
Off to make my tea...
