Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #88 ~ Best In Show

Welcome Everyone to our 88th Cinema Saturday Challenge, where this week we are featuring the 2000 Golden Globe nominated movie: "BEST IN SHOW" which is a docu-parody with an all-star cast. This movie is hilarious and is a comedic parody of documentaries and shows the underbelly of a dog show :) There are so many fun themes in this movie: man's best friend, congratulations cards, best in show themes, etc. We thought it would be fun for the challenge requirement this week to create a paper accordion medallion to have in our card/creation. Kelly Lunceford totally rocks the paper accordion medallions and has created a tutorial on how to make them or even check out this video tutorial on how to make them on Youtube. If you haven't seen this movie - get ready to laugh - it is so understated and the acting by Eugene Levy, Christopher Guest, Jane Lynch, Jennifer Coolidge to list a few is HILARIOUS! We hope you will join us this week and play along with us!

BROOKE'S Card inspired by the movie... BEST IN SHOW

This card is for the cutest dog trainer I know... My ZACHY....Come check him out on my blog...
One of the funniest scenes in this movie comes from Fred Willard's character the dog show announcer.. He says... "To think in some countries these dogs are eaten" What kind of person would say that... This character has all sorts of kooky knowledge he shares throughout the show... Best in Show has so many big name actors that will make you laugh. Their character acting is hilarious. Here are just a few~ Eugene Levi, Jane Lynch, Catherine O'Hara, Fred Willard, Jennifer Coolidge, Etc.

I think it's funny how people take on the characteristics of their dog/pet... or do think people pick dogs/pets that match their personality? If that's the case.. I am a little lazy old man who can't do tricks and doesn't share a dang thing... LOL!

Enjoy the show!

SANKARI'S Card inspired by the movie... BEST IN SHOW

I love this movie! That's all I can say! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the acting and I always just crack up at the subtlety of the humor and nuances of the actors (not to mention that the doggies are so cute!). I think my two favorite character's in this movie is Jane Lynch's character (she is simply hilarious) and Eugene Levy's character who has two left feet (no, for real he has two left feet! :) I think one of my favorite moments is when he had to walk or "show" his cutie terrier around at the end and he was nervous because of his two left feet (lol!) but he did it and not to give away the movie - but let's just say the terrier's parents were so happy! So inspired by Eugene Levy's character's accomplishment of walking and showing his dog with two left week, ic reated this card with the sentiment: "So dog-gone happy for you" from Taylored Expressions and paired it with this cutie little doggie who looks like a terrier to me :)

I created a little stand for him and used some dimensionals to pop him up. The background is stamped with the cute paw print and bone image and i of course had to add some liquid pearls :) This movie is just so much fun to watch and I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week!!!

I am such a ditz sometimes and I am not even blonde. No offense to you sweet blondes out there. But I made my card for this challenge and before I could get a pic of it, I gave it to my sis in law with a Fashion Bug gift card as a Thank You for helping me this past week. If on it's way to Louisiana as I type. So I guess now I'll have to make a NEW CSCC card. Well, should get my MOJO hoppin' again. I've had a full week off from crafting. I was ripping out carpet and reorganizing my craft room, and cleaning out the refrigerator. That's why my sis in law got a BIG THANK YOU from me! :O)

I so wanted to make a card dealing with the "two left feet" from the movie but just didn't get the time. Oh well. Hopefully I'll get to play next week.

Again I missed the deadline. I guess I don't know the actual deadline. I checked earlier today and Inlinkz said I had almost 9 hours until it closed. That was about 8 hours ago. I know I shouldn't wait until the last minute, but things happen. Oh well, my link is
