Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #92 - Napoleon Dynamite

Welcome Everyone to our 92nd movie challenge, where every week at the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge blog, we pick a movie from which we create a card from - this week we are featuring the 2004 movie Napoleon Dynamite, which won 10 awards including a Grammy! As everyone starts back to school, we thought it would fun to do this movie because its "flippin sweet"! If you haven't seen this movie - it might seem strange at first because its almost like a different quirky world that you get transported to as you see things in the eyes of Napoleon, but we are sure that it will have you laughing - and maybe even make you want to dance along with Napoleon in one special dance scene that is definitely memorable!!!

CONFESSION TIME: The first time that I sat down to watch this movie - I thought I would REALLY NOT like it - I found the first 15 minutes SO strange and told my DH that I thought this movie was really NOT my style - but by the end of the movie - I was totally cracking up and absolutely love this movie! There are so many memorable quotes from this movie - all that crack me up in different ways - but my favorite quote would have to be when Napoleon starts to list the "flippin' sweet" skillz that girls like guys to have"like Numchuck skills, Bowhunting Skills, computer hacking skills" LOL!!!! I still laugh and even as I am typing those skills - I can totally hear Napoleon's voice in my head saying those words. So I printed out the graphics of the three skills and then created this card with three pockets for them:

Card Ingredients:
Papers: PRism cardstock and Cosmo Cricket's Wanted
Inks: cat eye: Sienna and printer
Stamps: typed up the sentiments in "Menlo" and images from here
Accessories: mini library card punch, EK success mini scallops, Adirondack's dimensional pearls (terra cotta and butterscotch), EK success die punch

I pulled out Cosmo Cricket's Wanted papers which are simply awesome to create this card. I absolutely can't tell you HOW much fun I had making this card - it was so nice to watch little snippets of this video and totally crack up while crafting :)

I hope you guys will play along to this flippin' sweet movie challenge!!! Please check out more details over at the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge blog!

Hope that you have a chance to play along with us this week!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)

Hey sweetie! I was like you... when my girls rented this movie a few years ago, I couldn't stand watching it at first. Well, we had to watch it over and over again because it made us laugh so much! We didn't even return the video and kept it (with a high price, of course)! "Gosh," your card so "flippin' sweet!" Much love and hugs to you!

Oh my goodness this is amazing!! I love this card more than I can say. You'll need to make a few more of these so I can buy them from you. This crazy movie holds so many memories for me, DH and some close friends. Gotta love it. "I still love technology, but not as much as you, you see. Always and Forever." :)

Dude. You are like a card-making Liger, pretty much my favorite animal, bred for your skills in magic. Card-making magic.
