"I Love Lucy" Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever "I Love Lucy" blog hop!!! Today we are honoring the crazy and lovable red-haired lady that has made us laugh since the fifties (well not me personally, but you know what i mean. lol)  I'm very happy and excited to be part of Abby's hop because I'm a bit of a fanatic like her. I own all seasons on dvd and several of her barbie dolls. But Abby has me beat there because I saw her list and Whoa!!!

OK so you should be hoping over from Linda from My Quilling Nest. If by chance you are not, hop on over to our lovely hostess Abby from Scrapbookaholic by Abby to start at the beginning and see all the wonderful Lucy projects. You do not want to miss any.

For my project, I was inspired by Lucy's Italian Movie. In this episode, Lucy gets a tiny roll in an Italian film. In traditional Lucy form, she thinks she will be a star from it so she wants to do it right. She decides to soak up the Italian culture by visiting a winery but low and behold she gets herself into one heck of a funny situation. I inserted a YouTube clip for your entertainment, it's my first time doing this so I hope it works.


For my project, I created a little piece of Italian Lucy for Abby. I took a few of the pinnacle shots from the episode and incorporated them into the letter A. At the bottom of the vat i wrote "BBY" so it can read Abby. Then to finish it, I added a few grapevines (to represent the episode). I wanted to keep this clean and simple because I wanted it to be all about the A and all about Lucy. I hope you like it Abby.

Please excuse the magnets. I used them to hold up the frame.

**Now for Blog Candy**

Mine: I will be giving away a gift card from BevMo. I thought what better candy than some wine candy :) to represent my episode. Or I can create one of these with your initial and your favorite Lucy episode or character (doesn't have to be Lucy). You don't have to be a follower but I would love it if you are. the

Grand Prize: To be eligible you must hop along to ever blog and leave some bloggy love. You will have until Sunday night to hop along. Abby has a great lineup of prizes:
SEI Paper 6x6 Collection
SEI Ribbon Assortment
Sticker Assortment
Flower assortment  Pack
Elmer's Glue
I LOVE LUCY DOLL!!! WooHoo!!!
Italian Charm bracelet with I Love Lucy charms!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked what you saw.

Your next stop is Christine from Scrapbooking Technique.

Lisa Rhodes Lamer said...

Awwww I love this!!!

I've been so excited about this blog hop.... why???? because I am from Jamestown, NY the birth place of Lucille Ball!

We all have grandparent stories around this area with Lucy. My Grandpa Rhodes lived next door to Lucy when they were kids. She was same age as my Uncle Cecil and he, Grandpa and Lucy would walk to Washington Jr. HS together. They all lived on 23rd St.

Great hop!
