Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #84~ The Father of The Bride

Card #1
(Notice I even included a little hot-air balloon on my card to make it more personal)

Father of the Bride came out December 20th 1991. When We first saw this movie it was 1992 early spring and I was expecting our first child. I remember my sweetheart looking over at me with tears in his eyes. REality was just sinking in that this was going to be his reality some day. We needless to say we had a boy and then another boy and finally we had our little girl in 1998.. There is just something about a Father Daughter relationship that is so beautiful. I LOVED to go on errands with my dad growing up we would go to the car dealership and then got to lunch. Or go to the paint store, check on property or go see people that my dad had business with then lunch.. I loved going Ballooning with my dad and being part of his chase crew. It was soooo much fun. When It was time for me to go to college my dad wanted me to say home so I would fall in love with someone who would take me far from him. So I did and fell in love with an amazing young man that only lived a few miles away... The day before I got married my dad gave me a locket with my initial on it that hung from a bow. I pined it on my dress that I made for our wedding luncheon the next day. (not my wedding dress) I can totally see my dad and my sweetheart in Steve Martin when I watch this movie.. The heart-ache and longing for their little girl to not grow up and leave the nest. This move is a must see.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY DAD thanks for loving me and letting me go.

Card #2

I just couldn't resist buying the GRAPHIC45 romance collection. I love the vintage wedding images. This card reflects the 1950's version of this move with Elizabeth Taylor and Spencer Tracy.

I love Julee's Verve sentiment "What the Caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Miracle calls the Butterfly." How fitting is that as a young woman emerges into a new bride and becomes a Woman and a Wife.

Join us this week and create you own card for the movie "Father of the Bride"
