'Songs from the Movies' with CD Sunday.and a DT call.

Good Morning crafters from a  very sunny Cyprus and Kalo Paxa/Pacha.....Happy Easter.....to everyone in Cyprus. Yes it's Easter Sunday here in Cyprus which is much later than the UK this year. This is a much bigger celebration here than Christmas is. Many, many church events and bonfires and fireworks etc. and the red egg of course which is synonimous with Easter here. Also the Flaounes which is traditional Easter Bread.
I have a You tube link for you of the recipe and the making of the Flaounes for those who are keen bakers. Flaounes Easter Bread

Now on to my post for the CD Sunday challenge this fortnight. We had some fab entries for our 6th birthday challenge last time and I know many of you enjoyed trawling through your archives to select your entry....great fun!! We are going to have a difficult time choosing our winners .....so watch this space!!

This time's challenge is 'Songs from the Movies' chosen by the lovely Carol. I'm sure you'll have fun with this one too. I know I did. Here is my inspiration for you.


It's an exploding box using the CD 'Makey Bakey Mice...... All Ocassions'. This one has those mice attempting to sew using a sewing machine. This led me to search for an appropriate 'Song from a Movies' and what better than the 'The Sewing Machine' song for a very very old movie. Most of you woin't remember this one but those of a certain age will. Here is the link to the video. It's from a 1940's musical starring a very, very young Betty Hutton.'The Sewing Machine' song. Enjoy!!

The template for the box was on the CD so very easy to put together but you need lots of A4 card for this one. Here is the opened exploding box.


I added greetings from my stash to some of the layers and the little 'plate' of cakes was made using a circle of card and a snippet of a doiley. The cakes are made from flimo  with a gold 'Surprise' greeting added.

 
Sorry for the long post it should have come with a warning to grab a cuppa!!!
I hope I've inspired you and you pop over to CD Sunday to see what the rest of the team have made for you to enjoy....you won't be disappointed. There's also the Top Threes for our last challenges and a DT call. So lots to look at there. Have a fun week and I hope your cold weather in the UK has improved.

  2. Hi Wynn. Happy Easter. I got sidetracked and watched the video. They look gorgeous but I think it would take from our Easter to your Easter to make then. After the first bowl of ingredients I thought it was ready but wondered where the flour was!!
    You have done us proud again with your creation. I thought I needed patience for my parchment but how you manage these I don't know.
    Thank you for the compliment by the way. I am blushing.
    Hugs
