Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #62 - A Night at the Museum

Welcome everyone to our 62nd Challenge - where this week, we are featuring the 2006 movie: A Night at the Museum! This movie is filled with action, adventure, comedy and a wee bit of romance as well! There are literally SOOO many possibilities of cards you can create since this is a Museum of people, animals, etc. from all around the world! Our challenge requirement is adding something miniature in your card (in the movie - there is such a vast array of different scales - from the huge dinosaur to the little tiny cowboys and roman soliders - so we thought to make our challenge requirement one of scale - just adding something miniature in your creation :) Here is a Cinema Saturday Inspiration Corner for this movie to help out:

Brooke's project inspired by the movie "A Night at the Museum"
Ok Ladies it's 1:11 in the a.m. lol and I just got the internet up and going we had to reboot... Can I say good luck with this movie ladies there are sooooo many things you can get inspired from this movie...

When I got back on the computer I noticed that my sweet Sankari had left me a LOT of sos messages.. So I sent her a message and told her what I was making... Guess what? We both made a book marks... How CRAZY is that... Great minds that are having brain cramps think alike he,he. for more details check our my blog...

p.s. Did I mention it's 2:11 a.m. where Sankari is. Go girl.
Enjoy the show

Sankari's project inspired by the movie "A Night at the Museum"
Can I just say that there are waaaay toooo many things/elements/ideas in this movie! Its so hard to just pick one thing - there are so many different options - sooo much so that a last minute procrastinator like me had a hard time to pick something - so I finally created a bookmark from the the theme of the movie: "Knowledge is Power" since after reading through the history books, Larry the nightwatchman - has a better idea how to handle all the people, animals etc. of the museum who come to life after sunset! The funny thing is that during our 2am conversation, Brooke also created a bookmark! We totally laughed about our brain cramps and our bookmarks!
Here is my bookmark inspired by the cute big dinosaur who likes to "play fetch" in the movie - that I made for our son who is a total dinosaur fanatic right now - the little dinosaur is for the miniature element of the challenge. I thought that border punch looked like the back of a stegosaurus - totally very simple - very quick and the best part was giving it to my son when he woke up!
I hope you enjoy the movie challenge this week - its definitely one with lots of possibilities!!!!
Happy weekend and Big hugs!

Brooke S said...

No kidding Juli... We are always looking for movies that are full of inspiration.. And man did we get a movie full of choices.. Nancy you are a sweetie we love preparing the challenges. And yes sometimes the "SISTA" even get stumped... More like over load.... See Erica I really had to be clever with this one you would have got the sneak peek right away if I wasn't careful.

Before starting in on the movie, I want to thank you, Brooke and Sankari, for your work every week to set up these challenges. I have trouble meeting them, and I don't have to choose a movie! Thanks, too, for the inspiration corner.
This is such a fun movie! Everyone loves it. I guess that there is so much in it, there is something for everyone.
My favorite thing in the movie, and it real museums are the dioramas.
Well now it's time to figure out what kind of a minature to use. See you later.
