We are SOOOO excited today to feature the three time Oscar Winning movie: Roman Holiday as our movie for today's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! You know we love the one and only Audrey Hepburn - whose grace, style and elegance inspires even to this day! Roman Holiday was created in 19553 and stars Audrey as Princess Anne, a princess who according to ImDB is a "a bored and sheltered princess (who) escapes her guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome." The American newsman is played by Gregory Peck - and the way they fall in love - and also the way the end the movie is simply sweet.
This week's Challenge Requirement:
We love Audrey's grace and elegance and so for this week's Challenge Requirement - we thought to add a touch of elegance to your cards by adding some pearls (these can be liquid pearls ;) or pearl bling, or pearl brads - anything pearly that you would like to add!
Sankari's Card(s) Inspired by the movie: Roman Holiday
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie - it has Audrey and Gregory Peck!!! Who couldn't love that!!!?!!! I got so inspired that I made two cards!!! The first card is inspired by the scene where Audrey and Gregory take a ride around Rome in the Vespa scene - I LOVE this scene because of the pure happiness on Audrey's face as she lets down her "princess" role and becomes just a "girl" for the day - Isn't this picture of pure happiness on her face - just the loveliest!!!! I used the Mojo Sketch #112 from the awesome Juleeeee Tilman - I love this sketch and I couldn't wait to use Julee's beautiful stamp set: Wishing You for this card - and choose to pair the "Wishing you" part of the sentiment with the sentiment: "a day filled with happiness" - because it just perfectly captures the feeling of the beautiful day that Audrey and Gregory Peck spend together - my favorite scene is the "Mouth of Truth" scene - soooo cute! I loved the Vespa scene - I downloaded this Vespa image and then I matted it and added dimensionals to give it some pop :) Here is my card inspired by all of those elements: I also couldn't stop making just one card - here is another sneak peek that I made inspired by Princess Ann wanting to escape being a princess for a little while - hop on over to my blog to see the rest :)
There are so many fun places in this movie for inspiration - from the costumes, to the dialogue, to the characters, to the different scenes. I hope that this movie inspires you and that you play along with us!!!!
Thank you all for being part of our Cinema Family!! :)
Brooke's Projects Inspired by the movie: Roman Holiday
This project is inspired by the colors or rome and the influence of pearls...
While I was browsing one of my favorite craft blogs I saw a similar necklace and had to make one for my self... I used some of my quilt scraps.. This was a great project to make while watching a movie or two..
I have one more project on my blog inspired by the black and white portion of the movie...
What can we say it's AUDREY... You know we love that girl.... It's has been sooo long since we have done an AUDREY movie that we were just inspired to do another... My projects are done... How ever they need to have a photo in daylight they are to large for my little Ott light to even make a difference... If you don't see them posted on your first visit please check back. I will try sooo very hard so squeeze them in before I leave town... My projects are not cards.. So don't forget that you can think outside the box here on Cinema Saturday and explore you creative side..
I love the premise of this movie... Princess Ann just want's to be a everyday girl.. She wants to just be able to live and do as she wished with out all the restrictions and regiment that is part of her life... This is just a delightful movie... I can't wait to be able to watch it again from start to finish...
And oh the Irony... The Princess was right there under his nose the whole time.. .Staying at his place sleeping in his bed... You will just have to watch the movie to see all the adventure she has while living a life NOT as the princess...
Can't wait to see what you all create this week...THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE LOVE YOU HAVE SENT OUR WAY... You all are so sweet
If you want to see loads of great photos you can check out this sight I found.. Or visit IMDB here.
Maureen's Card Inspired by the movie: Roman Holiday
My card is inspired by the lovely Audrey...always classy. So I made a "classy" card with black and cream and a touch of Tiffany blue.
The quote I found that inspired my sentiment was by Dr. Bonnachoven, "The best thing I know is to do exactly what you wish for a while." This week's requirement is to use pearls...I love that!! The perfect embellishment for this card. I hope everyone can play along this week...thanks for stopping by!! I can't wait to see all your cards :)

So are you ready to play along this week!!!!!! Well, all you have to do is to create a card, layout, altered project etc that is inspired by the movie: Roman Holiday! Your inspiration can come from the costumes, the dialogue, the music, the themes, the characters, the colors - anything at all from the movie!
Sometimes, people have written to us that they find it hard to make a card for the movie challenges - but just know that your card can be whatever it is that inspires you from the movie (and if you haven't seen the movie - you can usually see snippets on Youtube) - sometimes you can look at the themes in the movie to help you make a card, or if there is a favorite dress that a character wore that inspires you - you can create a card based on that - or perhaps its a particular color, item, scene, theme that inspires you - whatever it is - just have fun! Inspiration can come from so many different places - and we can't wait to see what inspires YOU!!! We love looking at all your beautiful creations and are always excited to "see you" at Cinema Saturday!!!
