Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #1

Welcome to "Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge"... After an amazing bond of friendship formed through card challenges Sankari and I have decided to share out love of cinema and card making with others.. We also had both been listing what movie we had watched while making our creations.. So Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge was born.. The major brain child was Sankari and I was so graciously was invited along for the creation of this amazing creative challenge.  I love and admire Sankari and hope you all get to know and love her though her amazing creations and thoughts. Please join us for our first creative show.... to View the cinema challenge click here.

Our first feature Presentation is: 
Pride and Prejudice 
by Jane Austin

for Challenge rules and movie mini clips please join us on the challenge blog .

What a great movie to watch don't you all agree... This is a timeless novel and movie... Don't we all own this in VHS and DVD even Blue Ray... I think I have all the versions even the Bollywood of course..... The best thing about this movie is that my Sweetie and I both love it... When it's been a while sense we have watched it he will say "we need to watch or show" and we both know with out word being spoken what is meant... I love period pieces and really can't get enough... I basically crave them.. So I watch them over and over again... This makes it hard to read the book for me because Jane Austin movies are so true to character pretty much word for word... If it's been a while sense you have watch I hope you have a great time watching "Pride and Prejudice again....

I had to show this card with my wedgwood that I picked up in a antique shop along the "River Dart" in Devon county England.. What a great find.. I love the dark blue color...

The end of the movie is interpreted at the bottom of the card. Mr & Mrs... A double wedding... Hooray!!
In the movie "Becoming Jane" the question is posed. "Do all your ending have a happy ending? .. She replies  "Yes but only after having been miserable for a long period of time" or something like that.. you get the gist.. Unfortunately  Ms. Austin was not so lucky to have the same happy ending she so beautifully penned about..

So pretty! I can't stamp & watch a movie at the same time....I guess I am techno-challenged! But I will say that the PBS Jane Austen movies are THE BEST!!! Love them! Don't want them to end! I am so glad you & Sankari have teamed up---both your creations are awesome!
