I always love seeing what's up at the Cinema Saturday's Challenge (see here) . If you haven't, go check it out. This challenge is another great way to stretch your creativity and brain power! So when I found out that Napoleon Dynamite is selected as the feature movie for the inspiration, I got all excited. This 2004 movie won 10 awards including a Grammy. I remember back then, my DD Stephanie (who was in high school at the time) told me about this cult teenage movie and how funny it was. We had to see the movie together. And boy! HOW hilarious and funny the characters and stories are.
The challenge requirement is to create a card with a pocket or a container card. I got right down to work once I decided to give it a go. I sure had fun doing this little project. I ended up making two items- a little note book makeover and a card. Both has a pocket for book mark and gift card! This is the original notebook .
I used the movie's theme colors ( yellow, blue and red) as the backdrop. I didn't have the exact colors, so I distress the colored paper with Tim Holtz distress inks. And then I stamped them with Hero Arts (Just A Note) to make my own pattern paper. Add some pockets, faux stitching, buttons, ribbons and stickers.
Some more closer-ups. I purposely stapled the pockets to give to a real feel of the school theme...and I think a cool dude like Napoleon would have done something like that :)
That book mark was fun to make. I stamped one pencil at a time and then colored them with copics. I also added glitter on the joint part of the eraser.
And oh...the highlight of my Sunday was to see the movie " Eat Love Pray" (see clip here). My friend Colleen and I thoroughly enjoyed it! We
seriously jokingly thought about calling home and planned to tell our hubbies :"Darling, we are a little late...we are heading to the Toronto Airport to catch a flight to Bali"! Give us two years to find someone like Jarvier Bardem ourselves! All jokes aside, I think this movie is about self-discovery in the midst of chaos and it does makes me want to stop and smell the roses! I definitely see this movie in the future challenge in Cinema Saturday! Thank you for reading this long post. I want to say the same sentiment to you :"U R AWEOME" and "U ROCK"!
Do you think Napoleon fancy my to-do list?
