The Calla Lily Collection Freebie Is In Bloom

Ok, another weak attempt at a play on words. If you read my blog yesterday I asked you to see if you could come up with a tie-in between Katharine Hepburn and lillies.

Well, the connection is actually to the calla lilly. In the 1937 movie classic, Stage Door, Katharine Hepburn utters one of her most famous movie quotes when she says, "The calla lilies are in bloom again. Such a strange flower -- suitable to any occasion."

The famous lines in the film about "calla lilies" were taken from the unsuccessful 1933 Broadway play The Lake, in which Hepburn had starred (the dialogue became parody material for Hepburn impersonators for the remainder of the star's legendary career). ~ Tim Dirks
There is your classic movie history for today! And here is your digital scrapbooking freebie for today: the Calla Lilly Collection.

I'd like to acknowledge Gypsy Chick for her CU overlay I used for this kit. Look for it in today's kit and also in the add on I will offer tomorrow.

Remember, this collection is part of my Flowers Collection Series so check out all the kits in the series!
