Day 10, Dilly Beans: Celebrations and Movie Magic Monthly: Star Wars vs. Star Trek

Day 10:  Most embarrassing moment(s) - spill!

Well, I get embarrassed really easily and it's hard to pick out a specific time that was my "most embarrassing moment" - but here goes:

My son Trevor has always had issues with his teeth, and when he was about 8 years old we went to the dentist for a routine cleaning.  To my surprise, the dentist decided to pull all 4 of his front bottom teeth because they weren't coming out on their own and the new teeth needed the room to grow.  Trev was absolutely fine, but I was crying so hard that the dentist asked if I needed to call someone to come drive us home.  It cracks me up now, but I was so embarrassed!  I don't even know why I was crying so much, I guess it just totally freaked me out to have my baby lose all 4 teeth (and what looked like a lot of blood!) at once.  LOL  I'm still emotional but let's just say after having gone through the teen years with both a son and a daughter, it takes a little more than a pulled tooth to make me cry.  :)
We have a new challenge for you today at:

I used Amalia Princess, I removed her crown and the star from her wand and replace it with a US flag.  She's celebrating the Fourth of July holiday, and her little tutu is all covered in Stardust Stickles.  Papers and paper embellishments are from MME, and I added a few little star gem brads.
We also have a new challenge for you today at:

I knew right away that I wanted to use this freebie from Mayzy Art for my creation - this is Han Solo and Princess Leia.  I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, and sponged the edges all around each layer.  Added a shiny silver chipboard star and this Star Wars logo I found online.  The image kind of steals the show, though, I think it's just fabulous.  Hope you'll come play along with us, you've got all month - we'd love to see which one you'd choose!  Peace.
