Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #83 ~ The Greatest Game Ever Played

This movie has so much power. It's a story about believing in yourself and not letting anyone take away who you are and what you have to offer. I don't even know if I have a favorite part there are lost of little moments that make this movie special. Francis is not encourage from his family to play golf his father tells him that Golf is not a way to provide the living you need, find a trade and provide a honest days wage. Francis (Shia LaBeouf) is told from a club gentleman, "You are a caddy. Golf is a Gentleman's game you are working class you will never play golf." He had to create any opportunity he could and prove that he was more of a gentleman than they were. The best part of the movie is that he NEVER gave up on his dream and proved he could beat anyone even a legend with the right opportunity. This is a GREAT family movie. It shows what hard work and passion can do if you just believe in yourself.

If only THIS Father had more time and money for Golf.... Ahhhh.
My poor sweetheart has had to look out onto a golf course from his office window for about 10 years of the last 15 and never even had the chance to golf on that course. He has worked for 2 different companies that have bordered that course ironically. He is just to crazy busy. Unfortunately Golf trips come very far and few for him.. On our Honeymoon we stayed at a resort that had a golf course so we decided to go to the driving range and hit a few balls.. I thought.... that look easy... Man was I SO WRONGE I felt ever hit of the ball throughout my whole body. I is truly a game you have to work at. We even decided to take a few golf lessons I didn't improve that much.. But we had fun doing it together. My boys enjoy going to the driving range with Dad to hit a few buckets. When My boys were younger they did a summer golf camp and really had a great time. I would love to say.... Take a day a month but time is precious and Golf is a ALL DAY event. He even had a change at a tournament last Friday for our eldest son's Fundraiser for Football and he just couldn't get his foursome together for the tournament intime. It's like the gods of golf are against him. One of these day sweetie you will get to have your Golf time :)

I found this perfect vintage Golf image from Grapic45.. LOVE Grapic45... and knew it was a perfect match for this movie and a "NOT" fussy Fathers Day Card for a Golf loving guy. Then the perfect inspiration starter ARGYLE. It's a golf must. I created the Argyle pattern paper by stamping the background with the Diamond pattern and drawing the thin lines to create the Argyle pattern.

I haven't played with my favorite girl Julee for quite a while so here is her challenge for the week. My layout inspiration for my Cinema challenge.
