Thank you everyone for your super sweet comments of support and love for this challenge!!! We are so touched by your sweet words and are so happy that you love playing along! Well, today, we are happy to welcome you to our 63rd Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, where today we are featuring the 2008 Oscar nominated movie: Australia in honor of Australia day which will be celebrated on 2008! This movie is in honor of all our "down under" CSCC players! This movie is set in WWII times and unfolds the history around that time period. Even though it has a historical backdrop, this story really is about the full spectrum of love - love of a mother for her son, love of a grandfather for his grandson, romance, love of the land, love of freedom. The colors in this movie are very earth tone and so we thought our challenge requirement would be to use Kraft in your creations.
Here are some more ideas from the Cinema Saturday Inspiration Corner:

Brooke's Card Inspired by the movie: Australia
A few inspiration detail to my card include, Kraft color of course only my favorite.. Second Carol the main reason we were sooo excited to present this movie. Our cute little hobbit from down-under.. When I was review still photos from this movie there were several outfits that Lady Ashley's wore that really caught my eye. The blue and white(I know her dress is navy but I used the challenge blue on this card) are in remembrance of the dress she is wearing as she arrives in Darwin. Nichole Kidman is not real! No one is truly that skinny are they?? I wish... Other blue inspiration ideas came from the Australian flag and the ocean of course. To learn about my inspiration you can check out my blog here.
I hope you all sing your way home to our challenge this week.. We would love to have your join us.
Sankari's Card Inspired by the movie: Australia
The main element that drew me into this movie was the beautiful love story of the grandfather and his grandson Nallah and Lady Ashley and Nallah. I love when Nallah says - i sing you to me - as he weaves magic to create his destiny. The two hearts represent Nallah and Lady Ashley (hers is the one with the bigger bow) and the smaller one has the sun behind it to represent his grandfather) and the "hole" in his heart is filled with the love of Lady Ashley:
I hope you all play along with us this week! Sending you big hugs!!!!
