Welcome Everyone to our 36th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! WOW! Has it been 36 already?! Today we are so excited to feature the Oscar winning movie by Disney: Beauty and the Beast!

I am a huge fan of Julee's Mojo sketches and love getting my Mojo on with her sketches and love the beautiful vibrancy of her Verve stamps! AND Julee is offering a $30 gift certificate to shop at the VERVE store - so hop over to the Cinema Saturday blog and get more details about this challenge and check out Brooke, Amy and Julee's beautiful designs!
I was excited to do the movie Beauty and the Beast - and I remember reading the story of Beauty and the Beast long long ago in a far away land of childhood - and seeing it acted out in my mind's eye. So I was so happy when the movie came out (definitely a different take then the book) but so beautiful - and after watching this movie countless times - I totally knew each of the songs by heart! I love the Gaston song, the Be Our Guest song - but especially the song: Tale as Old as Time- sigh - love that song! I think that my favorite lyrics of the song are: " Ever just the same, Ever a surprise, Ever as before, Ever just as sure, As the sun will rise...." Aren't those lyrics just lovely!?
I used Julee's beautiful stamp set: Fairytales and her Mojo Sketch week 70 from January. What was funny is that I wanted to make a small part of the castle and thought to use the cardboard from an empty toilet paper roll for it - but of course there weren't any empty ones!! (then I thought about Carol's lolli-art story about how she needed a lollipop stick and had her daughter eat it so she could us it in her card and totally cracked up laughing :). Well, I couldn't just use the whole toilet paper roll in one evening! So I unwound it and kept it folded up in a little container in the bathroom :) - the things you do to make a card!
Paper: DCVW, toilet paper roll that I covered with gold paper from the Paper Company, tissue paper for the flowers
Ink: Pink Passion and Adirondack Expresso, Martha Brown
Stamps: Fairytales from Verve Stamps
Accessories: Making Memories brads, ribbon stash, pearls, xacto knife and dimensioanls
I really loved making this card - and naive as it is - I totally believe and cheer on fairytale love stories - and also understand that behind every fairytale - is some hard work - to make sure that it always has a beautiful ending :)
