Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #87 ~ The Holiday

Welcome everyone to our 87th challenge, where this week we thought it would be fun to do a CHRISTMAS IN JULY challenge and feature the lovely movie: "THE HOLIDAY" (2006) with an amazing cast. You don't have to make a holiday card of course - it could be a card about friendship, about love, etc - but if you wanted to make some holiday cards - what a perfect movie to do it to! This movie is about what happens when two women switch their homes during the holidays and fall in love with a guy from that area. The challenge requirement this week is to use eyelets and we can't wait to see what you come up with. Here is a trailer to this movie if you haven't seen it before:

BROOKE'S card inspired by the movie~ The Holiday

Who doesn't need a little Christmas in July..

The short and long of it all~ Two girls who have men trouble.... Swap homes. One in the US and the other in England. They each meet local guy to fall in love with.

I LOVE the movie "The Holiday" What a phenomenal cast.. I had only been home from England for a short while when this movie came out.. What torture this was. Our sweet friend was visiting from England and wanted to go to this movie... Twist my arm... What fun we had... When I was thinking about what to make the little cottage that IRIS lived in came to mind. So I just had to use this little cottage stamp from Stampin' Up.

So much happens inside and out of this little cottage. Snow was a huge part of the humor in this movie.. I can just picture Amanda slipping and sliding on the snow in her high heels. Or Iris crying her guts out over a huge looser named Jasper... My favorite part of the England half of the movie is the Gorgeous house that Graham owns( I WANT IT!!) and the beautiful children he has.. Mister Napkin Head is such a sweet highlight... My Favorite part of the US half of the movie is the trio of Iris, Arthur and Miles.. I love how Iris and Miles fall for each other over their genuine admiration for Arthur. I love watching their relationship/friendship grow... Everyone deserves to find their perfect match. The one who loves to watch the same movies, vacation the same place, encourages you to be your best etc...

I hope you all enjoy this weeks movie. Have fun with a little CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!

This is such a good film, I will definitely be re-watching this one, and probably making a holiday card to feel cool (I'm with ya Maureen -30 degree temp jump in a couple days after a super cool summer has been interesting!).

Erica said...

This is my dad's favorite movie. Yes I said my dad. I have to do this in honor of him. Can't wait!

This was a good movie. I liked the 'life switching' idea of vacationing in a place atypical to a person's norm. It's been so long since I've been able to play along with you all. Not sure when I'll be able to again either. But I have been checking the movie each week!

On an up note, our little Joshua is almost 3 months old already and doing very well!

Jennie said...

This is a favorite of mine too! Such a great cast and I could watch this movie any time of the year :o) Hope to play to come up with an idea...I have some but don't have a certain stamp I want. hhhmmm....

Just made my card, and then realised that I'd totally forgotten the eyelets! Had fun making it anyway :)

It's not an official entry, because I totally forgot about the eyelets, but thought some of you might like to take a look at my 'The Holiday' inspired New Years Eve card

Will make sure I remember the challenge requirement next time!!

I wish I had been able to publish my card before deadline, but I did finish it and it's on my blog.

Naomi said...

Oh shoot... I missed the deadline!!! I had it done too, but just hadn't had time to blog about it! Oh well, if you're interested in checking my creation out anyway, here's a link:
