Carmen Miranda was a Portuguese-born Brazilian samba singer, dancer, Broadway actress, and film star who was popular from the 1930s to the 1950s. Nicknamed “The Brazilian Bombshell”, Miranda is noted for her signature fruit hat outfit she wore in her American films. ~ wikipedia

Carmen Miranda was the inspiration for “inspired by Carmen Miranda” this months coordinated collection.

The collection by Sekada Designs is made in vivid, sunny colors. Contains lots of original elements, some are hand painted.

The Collection by Designs by Connie Prince is more traditional scrapping and I’m loving the flamingos!!!
