Two brothers from a set of triplets fooled a Russian prison when one brother swapped places with the other to give him a brief taste of freedom. Rather than returning, the freed brother ran off with his brother’s girlfriend. It took years for the authorities to realize they had been duped.

In 2003 a herd of wild elephants released a group of captive antelopes from a game reserve in Southeast Africa. The matriarch of the herd undid all of the gate’s metal latches with her trunk & then pushed it open. The antelope took their chance & ran into the bush followed by the elephants.

Sunday Recap 5.13

Hello, Paper Smooches friends and fans!

Happy Mother's Day, everyone!!!

Today I'm sharing a quick post of the Paper Smooches highlights for this week ⬇️

Be sure to play along with our May 2018 FUN theme challenge! I'm pretty sure this is as close to an "Anything Goes" challenge that we can get without calling it Anything Goes! LOL! All of the PS stamps/dies are F-U-N!

Here's my take on this challenge- I wanted a card that reminded me one of the some fun times that I enjoy, which is having a cold lemonade (or water), sitting on the beach, hanging with friends, relaxing. Next I needed a fun element on the card. I think that the "lemon" is perfect because it's actually a balloon die turned into a lemon! SO FUN! Or at least I think it is 🙃 This card is titled "Lemon Squeeze". Paper Smooches stamps/dies used include: Crystal Clear stamps/dies, Let's Celebrate Icons, Seasonal Tree dies.

That's it for me today! Be sure to stop back by daily inspiration and beautiful creations from the Paper Smooches DT!

The actor who played Luca Brasi in the Godfather was actually a member of the Colombo crime family sent to monitor the set. Coppola kept the cameras rolling as the actor nervously practiced his lines for the scene, scared that he was going to mess up the big Hollywood movie. He later edited that footage into the film so in-universe the actor’s character was nervously practicing what he was going to say to the intimidating mafioso Don Corleone.
