Kinky Boots!



This is my card for our every other month swap for an awesome group of ladies on SCS--the SOTC--Sisters of the Traveling Cards!  Gael was our hostess for October and she posted the following:
The September/October theme is... Broadway Musicals!

But wait, there is a catch. Only one person per musical, sooooo, you must PM me your choice and if someone has already taken it, you will have to name another. (This is to keep us from getting all witch cards when everyone chooses Wicked, for example)
You need not portray the entire title. For example, for 'Hello Dolly', you could make a card featuring a Doll. For Grease, you could do a car, a 50's theme, or a lightening storm, etc. The musical title should not be on the card, but if you could put it on a post-it on the back of your cards, that would be appreciated.

Do you know which musical my card is themed after?  It is my new favorite musical after we saw it on Broadway in September..................  Kinky Boots!  It is coming to Milwaukee in May and we sure plan to be there!  Great story--and a musical that makes you laugh, cry, smile, ponder, etc--all in the same show!
