CSCC#51- All About Eve and a new Sponsor!

Good Morning Everyone!! A huge thank you to Gina K. of Gina K. Designs for being our guest designer for our 50th challenge last week where we did the movie: Pretty Woman and for sponsoring some yummy blog candy (more about blog candy info for the Audrey winner and guesser from last week's challenge towards the end of the post ;). This week we are excited to feature the 1950 black and white 6 time Oscar winning movie: "All About Eve" starring Bette Davis, Ann Baxter, George Sanders, Marilyn Monroe and Celeste Holme. AND this week, in honor of celebrating our 51st challenge, we are so excited to have Pamela from Firecracker Designs sponsoring this challenge with some delicious blog candy!!! We were so excited to use Pamela's stamp sets to create projects for this classic movie! If you haven't seen this movie - you can read about the storyline Also this might be a hard movie to find at your local video store - but you could also try the library or netflix. OR you can watch the movie here on YouTube (there are 13 parts to the movie - click on this one to start).

We hope that you will play along with us this week - the challenge requirement is a fun one: and in one word is: BLING :) So we can't wait to see your blinged creations. For those of you who are not able to watch the movie - you can draw inspiration from the Theater for your creations.

Last week, our Audrey went to Libby Hickson for her lovely and inspiring card for Challenge #49's movie: The Lord of the Rings, Two Towers. And so this week we are so excited to have Libby as our guest designer! Here are our creations for this week's movie:

Sankari's Card: inspired by the movie: All About Eve:
using the stamp set: Theater Lights

First of all a huge thanks to all of you who played along last week and for all of you who dropped by to wish us a happy 50th challenge!!! We couldn't have done this without YOU! You guys make this so much fun for us and we thank you from our hearts for being part of this challenge blog! This week, I was excited to play along with this Oscar Award winning movie - and since I couldn't find it in the stores, I watched it on YouTube and was inspired to make this card: Now, the movie is black and white - but for some reason - just the thought of the theater made me think of Broadway lights and I wanted to make a fun and bright card in honor of the star of the show: Bette Davis. Here is the card: You're a Star inspired by Bette:

I LOVE these stamps! They were so much fun to work with and I have been dreaming of a stamp set with a film roll on it!! LOVE it! I blinged this up with some Kaiser Kraft rhinestones and some Martha Stewart chunky glitter for the star. I have to say that there is something lovely about watching older movies and listening to the dialogue that is well written, witty and very smart :) Can't wait to see your blinged inspired All About Eve creations!!!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)

Sense bling was our inspiration starter I though I would us a few crystals just spread out on the paper.. They photographed kind of funny don't you think... Sense this move is a BIG silver screen movie with a huge case of favorites.. I decided to keep it simple and not color in the image.. I also wanted to keep the color scheme simple. This is a great movie to watch on a cozy winter day/night don't forget it's 3 hours long.... My kiddos watched the last part of it with me after school and liked it... I thought that was kinda cool.. Most kids are that interested in old movies..

Thanks to Libby for showing of her mad designer skill and to Pamela for the stamps to play with...


Guest Designer: Libby's card inspired by the movie: All About Eve:
using the stamp set: Theater Lights

I'm so excited to be a guest designer this week on my very favorite challenge blog!! Although I'm not really into the classic movies as much, I absolutely adore "All About Eve". Bette Davis was such a fantastic actress, and the dialogue in this movie is so sharp and witty. Definitely true "Classic Hollywood" to me! For my card I just went with the general themes of the movie - the theater & leading ladies. And the fact that Eve is so eager to be a star and have roses thrown to her from the audience! Thanks Brooke and Sankari for having this wonderful, fun blog, and for letting me play along with you this week!
Thanks so much Libby for being our wonderful guest designer! Your card is simply beautiful and captures the movie! For more details of Libby's card - please check out: Libby's Little Addiction.

All right the computer genius here was trying to link her card and it did not work. (I hate it when the computer is smarter than me). :)So I'll just do it this way.
