Brooke's Card inspired by the movie ~ UP
What a sweet movie this is.... When shy Carl meet spunky Ellie he had now idea how much his life would change... It became the adventure of a life time.... From the first pinning of the "Ellie badge" Carl was part of a life long friendship. In the end the encouraging words Ellie wrote to Carl in the her Adventure book help him to change his life and reach out to change a life of another...
When Carl Lost the Love of his life he just couldn't move on. Carl decided to take his WHOLE house with him.. Little did he know that the little 8 year old wilderness scout Russell was a stowaway. These to are quite the odd couple on this little adventure.. Russell drives Carl nuts just my being his 8 year old self. They find a few little companion along the way.. Kevin a mother bird becomes their mission. The gang is trying to help Kevin back to her baby birds when her hunter shows up and just another adventure begins... To find our how this movie end you will just have to watch it... It's just a sweet reminder of how much we need others in our life....
I love this house and all the Love that was experienced in it made it a home... So not had to see where I got my inspiration from.
Join me here to see more about my inspiration.. HERE
I wasn't sure if my wee son (5 years old) could watch this movie when he got it as a bday gift since there were some things that might have scared him (like the pack of dogs and the chase scene at the end) - but surprisingly, when he loved every single second of it because of this spirit of adventure. He keeps asking me if we can get so many balloons and do that to our house! He LOVES the little boy Russell and he LOVE Carl the bird (he will try to squawk like him once in awhile :). When I was making the challenge banner for this movie - my son was sitting next to me and was so excited as to what card I was going to make - so I made this card for him - in the spirit of adventure
Shaz's Card Inspired by the movie "Up!"
While I think Pixar make good movies, the premise of this one had me a little dubious (it just didn’t sound as fun as toys or monsters), so I was pleasantly surprised when I did get to see UP! If you are ever around me and my girls you may hear random “Squirrel!” comments, heh heh heh. Anyway, when I found out what movie I would be designing for the basic idea for the card was in my head straight away.
I did struggle with the sentiment though… I had a few stamps that were appropriate for the movie (inspired by Ellie’s passion for life) but I just didn’t feel they were right for the card. I decided to print out the “Adventure is out there!” catch-phrase because it can bring together the idea of grand and simple adventures of life.
A huge thank you to our guest designers!!! They created such beautiful creations of inspiration!!! So who is going to be our guest designer next week? It could be you!! All you have to do is to create a card, layout, altered project, etc. that is inspired by the movie: UP!
