Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 4 - Grease

YAY! Welcome to our fourth challenge, where we proudly present Grease! This movie was released in 1978 and is based on Warren Casey's musical. As a movie musical, it has grossed almost $400 million since then and even 30 years after its release, this movie still remains ever popular. You can read more about the details of Grease at Wikipedia and at IMDb. Can't you just hear the songs in your head already!!! This is such a fun movie - and we hope you have fun with it too!!!

Sankari's Card:

 I love this movie! Its one of my favorite musicals! When I was little I used to have a total crush on John travolta - even had a classic shirt of him on my T-shirt. And my DH had a huge crush on Olivia Newton John - so it was fun to do Karaoke with the songs from this movie and pretend to be each other's Sandy and Danny :) (although since then Johnny Depp has replaced John Travolta....but I digress.... anyhoo :) It was totally fun to make this card - and I got the inspiration for the card from the Intro to Grease which was done as a cartoon (can see it here) with the song Grease is the Word by Franki Valli. I love the cartoony feel and that song is just awesome!!! 

So here is my card where I tried to recreate the last scene where Sandy and Danny fly up into the sky in Grease Lightening - but only thing is that they are ....cupcakes :) 

I had so much fun making this card for this totalllllly fun movie :) Hope all of you have a chance to tap your toes to the Grease soundtrack and to create your Grease inspired Cinema Saturday Creation!

You can check out more details on Sankari's Blog

Brooke's Card:
I decided to go with the big "Sleepover" seen. When Sankari and I were talking about this movie I had Frenchie's hair in curlers, and pineapple hair from the prom came to mind. I really thought it would be fun to re-create paper hair. What's more fun that girlfriends, food, and movies. WATCHING "GREASE" with GIRLFRIENDS.

We have had this soundtrack playing in our house for weeks now. My kids have always love this movie and music. It seems like they are always learning a song from this soundtrack for something or other for school. Last year in "U.S. History" my son's learned about music from all the era's and the preformed a few song in costume for parents. This week it was my DD turn they were learning songs and action to preform at "Barns and Noble" for a school fundraiser. When my kids were little we would ballroom dance to this music around the house. I was always had to be the guy partner so know I am not a very good female partner. I always want to lead. When I was a kid I was a girl for the "50" probably 3 times I just loved wearing mu mom's Original Poodle skirt and ensemble. In Junior high red "Keds" were my favorite as well. I hope you all had a great time watching this movie and making a few memories with you kids.

p.s. I am with Sankari DH I loved Olivia Newton John. We had a 8-track of hers and I loved to listing to it. I also loved her in "ZANADU" jump over and catch the 80'S fever. O.K. I'm an "80'S" girl... Come over to my blog to see more photos. 

We are so excited to see your lovely creations!
