Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - #17 The Princess Bride & 2sketches4you



When I was a Senior in high school 20(choking) years ago... I was in a women's ensemble. We were practicing for a little barbershop number using canes and hats... I know corny... anyway my girlfriend raised and pointed her sword(cane) toward me and said these famous words to me: "Hello my name is Inigo Montoya you killed my father prepare to die" I totally had not clue what she was talking about.. So She explained to me all about a movie call "The Princess Bride" and that was pretty much history... We had many swords fights that spring as we rehearsed for our spring showcase...

When I married my sweetie pie this was one of his favorite movies and now one of our children's favorite movies.. I think I watched this movie 3 times in a row while I was making cards yesterday. "Inconceivable" but true. I even watched the extra features and Mandy Patinkin boobs like a baby.. He just couldn't believe he was part of such an amazing movie it's really cute. He was so happy bless his heart... In the interview he say "I asked Rob Reiner what he thought this move was really all about and he told me: 
"The most important thing in life is true love".



Inspired by ~LOVE~


I'm a first timer on this challenge... But I have been stalking this challenge 4~ever.... I just had to put it at the top of my to-do list.. I will be back for more. I really had a great time playing along.. I really enjoy the style of card that are being done over at this challenge.. Thanks Laura and Kazan..

With the new reals of "The Princess Bride" a while back this was the jacket cover.. The title on the cover is SO COOL!!! The artist who designed the cover is a genius.. The title reads Princess Bride wether you view the sunrise of the blue sky... 

Come join us in and challenge your creativity. We would love to have you.
Hugs
Brooke

Oh Brooke. I've been gone, and of all the challenges you've had, this would be the one I could try! I love, Love, LOVE this movie. Maybe if I have time, I could still meet the deadline. (Can't count on it though) RATS!!!

Great sentiment for your card relating to the movie. As always, you did a great job.

OK, I just realized I missed the deadline, but since this is my favorite movie, I just had to try something.
