Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #80 - Becoming Jane

Welcome Everyone to our 80th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, where every Saturday we pick a movie from which we draw inspiration from to create a card, scrapbook layout or 3D item. This week is our 80th challenge (the big 8-0! !!) and we thought we would honor our roots by picking the movie: "Becoming Jane" in honor our our very first challenge "Pride and Prejudice". When Brooke and I thought to start this challenge - it was because we both simply loved Jane Austen movies - and this movie is simply splendid!!!

Can I just tell you that I wasn't sure about this movie at first - but as I was watching it - I simply got swept in and carried away. Okay, okay - I WILL admit - that ALOT of my getting carried away was because of the yummy James McAvoy (wow! love his intensity!) . The love story between Jane and Tom in this movie just opened my heart - their interactions, their passion, their love story - so beautiful and a wee bit heartbreaking too. (man - the last scene just kills me with the looks that they give each other... sigh!)
Speaking getting swept away - I made this card for my wonderful DH who swept me off of my feet the very day I meant him. Tomorrow is our anniversary and I wanted to make a special card for him in honor of our special day :) I love this quote that Tom says: "What value will there ever be in life, if we are not together".... So I printed it out using a barouqe script and used a sketch that I designed for the Paper Craft Planet's Saturday Sketch Challenge today!!!! (So, I hope you will come and play along with both the sketch and cinema challenge today!!)

I loved this little bit of DP that I have had for years (I simply loved the filigiree work so much that I save this little scrap - it kind of reminds me of a sari). If you haven't watched this movie - and you love Jane Austen (or period pieces, or James McAvoy!!!!) - its a definite must!!

You can check out all the details of the sketch challenge here at Paper Craft Planet - (upload with the tag: SK052210)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
