Pink Saturday

It's time for Pink Saturday again. I can't believe how fast the weeks go by. Emilia and I finished 5th grade on Thursday. We are both looking forward to enjoying some time off now before we start 6th grade later this summer. It is always a good feeling to know we have made it through another grade together. Yesterday we all went to see Night At the Museaum. It ended up costing $45.00 for the 3 of us because it was on the IMAX Screen. Rich and I still can't believe we spent that much to see it. The only good thing for that price was there were no previews. The movie was pretty good but definitely not worth that price. This will probably be the only movie we see this year after that.
My pink item today is this card.
I originally shared it in this post but decided to post it again because I thought it would be a great Pink Saturday share. These were my inspiration for this card.
Stuffed pink hippos are very popular in this house and they all have a unique personality of their own. The large hippo's name is Margaret or Maggie Lou as we like to call her. She is a very fun loving hippo and loves cake especially Lemon. Her true love is Johnny Bravo the cake baker but she also loves Duff from Ace of Cakes and has now taken a liking to Buddy from The Cake Boss too. I knitted the pink sweater she is wearing as well. Lila is Emilia's most beloved hippo of all. As you can see from the photo she is not very pink anymore but that is because of all the love she has gotten. Lila is a very sensitive hippo and her favorite things are art and Cat Deely the host from So You Think You can Dance. The card is up for sale in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in buying it. That's it for now. You can see the list of the other participants on Beverly's Blog too. I will be back next Saturday with more pink things to share in the meantime I hope to get some time to stamp some new things this weekend. As always thanks for stopping by and have a great Pink Saturday!

Saturday mornings are mine. I spend them traveling the web, hopping from page to page visiting some of the most lovely blogs loaded with pink all thanks to Beverly and her great idea.

Thanks so much for sharing your pink this week and for making my morning just a little bit brighter. Wishing you a special weekend filled with fun and family.

Oh that card is so darling with the tail holding the balloon! Her little face/eyes have the sweetest expression. Just adorable. And I love stuffed things (perchance why I eat a lot? JK)

I hope you enjoyed the movie after all that! The UK reviews do say it's even better than the first one (which was on TV last Sunday - great timing, as the new film has just opened over here). That hippo card is rude! Naughty - and much fun.

Happy Pink Saturday!
