Default APRVSN17G ~ Saturday April, 1st - 2:00 P.M. ~ Fools Who Dream ~ tessaduck

Challenge Title: Fools Who Dream
Hostess: tessaduck (Brenda)
Keyword: APRVSN17G
Date: Saturday, April 1, 2017, 2 P. M. EST

My challenge to you: Take inspiration from the Oscar-nominated song, Audition: The Fools Who Dream, from La La Land.

Imagine: Late 60's, blowing soap bubbles out the window of a Ford Fairlane, bellowing "Carpe Diem, Seize the Day-- Blow Ye Bubbles While Ye May," en route to play in the People's Fountain. That may have been my "Fools Who Dream" event...

I consider myself to be a pragmatic, practical, responsible (boring) person. This memory is precious to me.

Don't worry-- I wasn't driving. However, there was a bottle of cheap wine in the air vent, cooling, for later consumption.

Here's the lyrics: The Fools Who Dream

There's plenty of potential with these lyrics. I'm picturing a get well card from the phrase "She spent a month sneezing..." I can't wait to see what inspires you.

View the gallery for this challenge: HERE
View the April Fool’s Gallery: HERE
View the April Fool’s Challenge Thread: HERE

Many thanks to all of my fellow hostesses for their wonderful sample cards for my challenge!

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Sunday, April 9.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the April Fool's VSN.
a) From the"Main Gallery" drop down list on the first page of the up loader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery drop down list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery drop down list choose April Fool's - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

Here is mine. I have to edit the details, but am having computer problems.
Loved your challenge. Of course saw with word Paris in the lyrics and went for it! LOL
We went on our 25th, and dreamed of getting there on our 50th, but that didn't work. But we will always have the first time!!!
Thanks Brenda.

I'm loving the cards that are showing up in the fools who dream gallery. The framed sunset seems to be popular! as well as the Paris connection. I'm still considering painters, poets and plays-- maybe do an art card. or a diva card, for the plays? and what about ripples from pebbles...

Used the "sunset inside a frame line". It just jumped out at me and then I discovered all these little scraps that went together, so this was actually a really quick card.

Awesome cards, all! I had to do another one: APRVSN17G Paris If not for the MISTI, nesties, and a scoring tool, this would never have fit into the time allowance. The fussy cutting took the most time...
