Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #56 - Legally Blonde

Good Morning Everyone!! Happy Halloween!!! Instead of Halloween movie - we have something a little different in mind for you! This week we are excited to present our 56th challenge featuring the fun movie: Legally Blonde - which was the winner of two Golden Globe Awards and nominated for 9 other awards! Admist all the pink fluff - this is a wonderful movie about going for your dreams, believing in yourself - even when other's question your abilities.

So for this week's challenge requirement, we thought it would be fun to create something that inspires with an encouraging or uplifting sentiment!

Brooke's Card inspired by the movie "Legally Blonde"

I remember when this movie was premiering thinking this is going to be dumb... Isn't is nice to be surprised.. I think that Reese Witherspoon was the reason.. Reese was adorable in this movie.. For me I started out thinking Elle was a really dingbat.. As the movie develops and you see her try so hard to prove her self worth and intelligence she really grows on you and you can't help but root her on... One on my favorite all time relationships in the movie is between Elle and Paulette(Jennifer Coolidge) I love how they help each other out with out even realizing it half of the time, the way real friendship works.. You think outside yourself, you become a good listener and a confidence builder.. Don't we all become better people when we serve others... We can't forget the cutest little star Bruiser Woods.. The little baby doggie is ADORABLE... Go Bruiser! Cute, cute movie...

Visit I.M.D.B for all the cast bio's and more info for this movie here.

Happy Halloween

Sankari's Invisible Card Inspired by the movie Legally Blonde :)
Hi Everyone! We are finally home from our travels back East - we arrived late last night - and after a whole day of travel with two little kids all by myself - I was exhausted and I am so bummed that I don't have a card ready to go this morning because I love this movie - but I definitely will be making one later on today! Its so good to be back home and so good to start blogging again!!! yay :)
Thank you all for playing along with our challenges!!!
Big hugs! See you Soon!!!
Sankari :)

This week we have two wonderful guest designers!!! Nancy was our Audrey recipient for the 53rd movie challenge: Elizabeth: the Golden Age with this lovely card and Regina was our Audrey recipient for our 54th movie challenge Finding Nemo with this lovely card and we are so excited to welcome them this week as our guest designers for the movie: Legally Blonde! They are so clever and have created some simply lovely cards for today's challenge:

Regina's Card Inspired by the movie~ Legally Blonde
I love how Elle Woods goes for what she wants, with a plucky attitude and a winning personality. The other star of the movie is Bruiser Woods, her adorable chihuahua. My little boy has a beloved stuffed chihuahua (a gift from his Nana), quite possibly the ugliest toy in the universe (no offense, chihuahua-lovers of the world). It is so bizarre people actually stop us on the street to comment. So, naturally, the "star" of my card had to be an homage to this tiny canine.

I don't have any chihuahua stamps, so I decided to draw my own, using my little guy's as a model. Using a light table, I traced the image a second time so that I could pop it out over the big juicy bone I thought would be the perfect "dream." Wanting to keep things simple, I stuck with plain shades of pink (of course!) with just a few brads and a bright ribbon to finish off.

Thanks again for choosing me.

How absolutely clever!!! Can't believe that you drew Bruiser!!! And he looks sooo adorable as he looks at the huge bone!!! Simply awesome!!! Thank you so much for joining us this week as our guest designer!!! For more details - check out Regina's awesome blog!

Nancy's creation inspired by the movie: Legally Blonde
So, I just love this movie and it's sequel -I was inspired by so much! Of course, the card HAD to be pink, and Reese Witherspoon/Elle Woods just *sparkles* in this film, so I felt this project called for lots of glitter and stars as well to capture the character. Elle Woods is such an inspiration: she's fun, determined, considerate, and full of courage. I chose the quote: "It takes courage to grow up to be who you really are" as my encouraging sentiment, because Elle really did grow in this film and it took a lot of guts for her to stick with it.
Now, I couldn't leave out one of my favorite parts of the film (I know there are others with me on this...): The "Bend and Snap" scene in the beauty salon. This just makes me laugh out loud every time. So, I made a little "bend and snap" background technique, using rubber bands and craft white ink.

Check out my blog for more details! My family got quite a kick out of me bending and snapping my card -LOL!
I hope you get as much out of this movie as I do, enjoy!!

What a great take on the Bend and Snap part of the movie Nancy! We love your uplifting sentiment as well!!! Thank you so much for joining us this week as our guest designer!!! For more details check out Nancy's wonderful blog!


Who is going to be our guest designer next week??! Well after looking through everyone's entries (still working on leaving comments :) It was hard to just pick one! We loved Karli's house (and your writing is hilarious!!), we loved the creative way that Aubri used the die in her card and Awilda had a lovely Halloween card ready to take off as well. So we looked through all of your yummy Halloween creations again and one card that caught our attention is Samara's hocus pocus creation - we loved the three witches on the card and their similarities to the three sisters in the Hocus Pocus movie! So Samara we hope you will join us next week as our guest designer and display your Audrey on your blog linking back to us! Thank you so much to everyone for playing along!!! Hope that you had a great time playing along and we hope you play along with us this week!!! All you have to do is to get your favorite inspirational sentiment out and play along!!!

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: Legally Blonde (or even the sequel if you would like) with some uplifting or encouraging sentiment and link it up here!
