Man, some of you are hard to fool! We had so much fun reading all your comments about the sneak peek ! Here is the reveal of the full sneak peek picture...We sure enjoyed all the chatting about the movie preview. You are all so clever.. We can hardly wait to see what you come up with. "Gone With the Wind" - what can we say...
I had a little fun with this first card - The silhouette of Scarlett and Rhett was painted and then the outside says: "Frankly my dear..." and then the inside says: "You had me at hello" (which is from Jerry Mcguire - but I just had to use it for this card - because the juxtaposition kinda cracks me up :) ..
This second card was made from the a scene in the movie, when Scarlett resolves to move forward into tomorrow... that scene was the inspiration for this card - which is where the sentiment: "Celebrate the Dawn " comes from... just to celebrate the possibilities that every day holds...
I was originally thinking about making a card from the scene at TARA with Mr O'Hara and Scarlet and he is trying to convince he that all she needs in here life is the land. When it came to it I was really inspired by the dresses that these woman were waring.. AMAZING! Come over to my Blog to see were I got my inspiration..

First color film to win the Best Picture Oscar
The film had its first preview on 9 September 1939 at the Fox Theatre in Riverside, California. In attendance were David O. Selznick, his wife Irene Mayer Selznick, investor John Hay Whitney and editor Hal C. Kern. Kern called for the manager and explained that his theater had been chosen for the first public screening of "Gone With the Wind" though the identity of the film was to remain undisclosed to the audience until the very moment it began. People were permitted to leave only if they didn't want to hang around for a film that they didn't know the name of, but after they'd gone, the theater was to be sealed with no re-admissions and no phone calls. The manager was reluctant but eventually agreed. His one request was to call his wife to come to the theater immediately, although he was forbidden to tell her what film she was about to see. Indeed, Kern stood by him while he made his phone call to ensure he maintained the secret. When the film began, the audience started yelling with excitement. They had been reading about this film for nearly 2 years, so were naturally thrilled to see it for themselves.
For the premiere in Atlanta in December 15, 1939, the governor declared a state holiday. Ticket prices for the premiere were 40 times the usual going rate.
