Welcome Everyone to our 65th Challenge and with Valentine's day just a week away, we thought we would help provide some romantic-love cinema for your creative inspiration - so this week we are featuring the love story: Sleepless in Seattle (seriously, how did you guys guess this? and Meg Ryan too?? your Friday sneak peek guesses are amazing!). This movie was nominated for two Oscars and since its release and is influenced by the brilliant 1957 movie: "An Affair to Remember" (starring Cary Grant/Deborah Karr) - which we did as a Cinema challenge last year (by the way - this movie is a MUST see!!). We thought we would keep the challenge requirement simple this week: just add a red heart (big, small, lots or little!). There are lots of themes in this movie: here are some themes, visual inspiration and color inspiration if you need a little mojo boost in creating your card:

Brooke's project inspired by the movie~ Sleepless in Seattle.
I think you can tell where I get my inspiration for this scrapbook page/Valentine for my sweetie. The Heart from the Empire state building. The majority of my inspiration comes from the true love that Sam(Tom Hanks) has for the love of his life. And the touching way he shared his memories of her. It's also represent opening your heart to find new love and a healing heart:
I love when Annie(Meg Ryan) and Becky(Rosie O'Donnell's) characters get lost in the movie "An Affair to Remember" we become part of their oh's and ah's as they crying over hope hopes and dreams of romance in their own lives. The funny thing in this movie I can relate to it the code cracking that the adults have with problem solving.. Remember when the kids Jonah and Jessica were saying things like:
Jessica: H & G.
Sam: has a look like what?
Jessica ( giving a look like duh!):Hi and Goodbye.
I feel that same way with some of the texting lingo... I am pretty hip I like to think.. But come on the only teen I text is mine and he doesn't speak in code to me... LOL. Did I mention this is also one of my sweeties favorite movies...He said "The chemistry between Tom and Megan at the end of the move on top of the Empire State building is just amazing. It's hard to beat that". Is he adorable or what. (heart melter for sure and he is all mine)
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you listed below so we can enjoy your projects.

I think one of my favorite parts of this movie is when Meg Ryan and Rosie O"Donnell are watching the beautiful movie: An Affair to Remember. If you haven't seen this movie - you MUST I love when they were quoting Deborah Carr - Oh! What an amazing movie (seriously - you will love this movie - it is so smart and witty, and romantic and brilliant!). It was hilarious when Rita Wilson was describing this movie to Tom Hanks character and she starts crying (I watched this with my MIL and we were both crying at the end... sigh, sob!) and then I love it because Tom and Bill Pullman's character describe the Dirty Dozen movie in the same way! LOL! I love when Meg Ryan writes that she will meet him on the top of the Empire State Building just like Deborah Karr did with Cary Grant -- so that was my inspiration for the movie -
that and the elevator doors at the Empire State Building: here is my attempt to take a picture of my inspiration pic from the movie (as I am watching it!! lollol!!)
I love the way they talk about destiny and magic in this movie - and how the heart sparks in recognition when he meet your beloved :) So I created the sentiment: Love is Magical for my love card for my DH :)
I loved watching this movie (I think I have watched it over 30 times - but it always makes me smile and I adore the little boy Jonah - how cute is he -- sigh... Well, we hope that you will play along with us this week as we are all gearing up to create our Valentine's day cards for our dear ones!!! Can't wait to see your lovely creations!!!
