Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #63 - Australia



Today over at CInema Saturday - its our 63rd Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, where today we are featuring the 2008 Oscar nominated movie: Australia in honor of Australia day which will be celebrated on 2008! This movie is in honor of all our "down under" CSCC players! This movie is set in WWII times and unfolds the history around that time period. Even though it has a historical backdrop, this story really is about the full spectrum of love - love of a mother for her son, love of a grandfather for his grandson, romance, love of the land, love of freedom. The colors in this movie are very earth tone and so we thought our challenge requirement would be to use Kraft in your creations.

The main element that drew me into this movie was the beautiful love story of the grandfather and his grandson Nallah and Lady Ashley and Nallah. I love when Nallah says - i sing you to me - as he weaves magic to create his destiny. The two hearts represent Nallah and Lady Ashley (hers is the one with the bigger bow) and the smaller one has the sun behind it to represent his grandfather) and the "hole" in his heart is filled with the love of Lady Ashley:

I hope you all play along with us this week!
Please check out the Cinema Saturday Blog for more details!!!

Sending you big hugs!!!!
Sankari :)

That card is just brilliant! I love the shades of kraft and brown you used. It's so detailed! How long did it take for you to put it together? Wow that's all I can say! I don't think I'll be playing along this week :( I haven't seen the 3hr movie yet and the mojo just isn't working. It probably doesn't help that I've had my nose buried in a book insted :P
