Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #28 - The Lion King

Good Saturday morning Everyone!!
Welcome to our 28th Cinema Saturday Challenge - where this week, we are so excited to feature the 1995 2 time Oscar winning animated movie: The Lion King! The requirement this week is to create a movie with an animal inspired by the movie. Which is really simple when you look at the wide range of inspiration from the movie!

I used Lynn's sketch that she created for the Saturday Sketch challenge over at Paper Craft Planet - what a fun sketch! You can see the sketch and more here. I loved using these stamps (they were all the way in the corner... I am always debating between getting rid of stamps I don't use that much and just hording everything that I have.... the plus side to getting rid of old things is that you have more space for new things and less guilt but the down side is that you might get rid of something and then end of regretting it when you can come across a project where you suddenly realize that it would have been per-fect for it!)

One of my favorite relationships that are explored in this movie is that between Simba and his father. There is a scene where Simba asks his father: We'll be together always, right? and his father tells him to look up at the stars and he will see that the great kings of the past are always there to guide him and so is he.... I always loved that part... just the connection between generations that is there and that love that is always there forever - and how the blessings of the ancestors are there to guide you in your path today.... so I took this inspiration to create my card: Together Forever.

Card Details:
Paper: From Stash
Ink: Memento: Tuxedo Black
Stamps: In the Wild stamp set from Stampin Up!
Accessories: liquid pearls, bling, tearing tool, ribbon, circle cutter from Creative Memories
Show watched: Lie To Me (on - love it!)

We have a special Guest designer over at the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - and I hope you all hop on over to the Cinema Saturday blog and check out all the details for the challenge - AND that you play along with us this week!!! Cmon'!

Hope you are having an awesome start to your weekend!

Sankari :)
