Since it's Day 3, it's time for Guess the Movie! I have to say, mine is pretty easy. So I'm not even going to give you a hint. Some of the other gals are much trickier though! ;)

For this very famous scene, I used Betty Monroe and the Hollywood Stars Sidewalk. I had SO much fun coloring this! It was actually the first of the 3 that I did. 

I very rarely color blonde hair, and I was rather worried that I would get that distinct Marilyn Monroe color wrong. But I think I nailed it! She was done entirely in Copics. But my background was done in colored pencils and a wee bit of watercolor markers. And I used a film cell stamp from the Bombshell Stamps set, Rise and Shine, on my yellow cardstock.

I must say, that I LOVED doing the hops for the past 3 days. And I am really sad to see it come to an end. But, like most good things...right? I hope that you have enjoyed yourself as well! And snagged some sweet new digis in the process! Below is the entire hop list. Please be sure to stop by everyone's blog to show them some love! And don't forget to Guess the Movies! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
