Conference Time

I am getting a head start this year on Activities for General Conference. We are lucky enough to have a Semi-annual world wide meeting for
"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints".

Broadcasted from here:
L.D.S. Conference Center in S.L.C., Utah

About this:
The Teachings of Jesus Christ.

We are able to watch it right in our very own homes on T.V. every 6 months. To keep the little kids interest over the 2 days and 8 hours of viewing I have found a few activities to keep them focused.. I guess I know what I will be doing for the next few days... Getting activity packets prepared.. We also love to play Conference Bingo at our house.. The kids listed really closely to hear the message and find the words on their bingo chart. Maybe it's all the sweets but I hope to think it the tradition.

If you want to make a packet for you family here is a great link.

If you are wondering what a General Conference is you can read and watch it here.

Hope you enjoy.

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #96 ~ Iron Man

I am "NUTS" about you.

I think my favorite part of the Iron Man series is watching the chemistry between Tony and Pepper... Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow or defiantly two of my favorites.. Robert can totally pull off the arrogant wealthy social-light and Gwyneth is so good at playing a strong but elegant women. The little robot reminds me of Tony Stark's soft side.. He is forever taking Pepper Potts for granted and has to ask for her forgiveness. The 3 hearts are Tony and Peppers of course. The little metallic heart is Tony's Iron Man heart.. Pepper is always trying to keep all of Tony's hearts in check.. The color scheme is Iron Man inspired of course.. All the Silver reminds me of the FIRST Iron Man attempt all metal..

Thanks Karen for a great Sketch Challenge to get the Mojo going...
Check out Karen's challenge here.

I was "NUTS" about it.

All "Stampin' Up" except the embossing folder by "Cuttle Bug".

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #95 - High Noon

This classic western is easy on the eyes that's for sure.. Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly can we say ATTRACTIVE!
Classic old movies also feature the good ole' Harry Morgan (Col Potter of M.A.S.H.) and Lloyd Bridges.

Cards sketch inspiration from Ms Julee over at Mojomonday.blogspot.com
Thanks for always getting my Mojo up and going Julles.

My inspiration came from the classic colors of a western with a Princess twist. I can help but see Grace as a Princess in what ever I watch... In the movie Amy(Grace Kelly) is most defiantly not a princess but a simple quaker girl.. She is totally against all violence and doesn't want her new husband Will (Gary Cooper) to be the Marshal anymore. It take the whole movie to convince he that the wishes of his wife are the way to go.

Join in the fun and create your card inspired by this weeks movie..

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #94 ~ Sleepy Hallow

Card inspired by the movie~ Sleepy Hallow.

I saw this movie last year on t.v. for the first time and my first thought was WOW Christina Richi is so pretty as a blonde. She really has grown up. This was one of her big breakout rolls as a young lady and not as teen/child.. And Jonny is well Jonny in this movie.. There is somethings to say about a Depp/Burton movie.. You know it's going to be a little twisted and dark. The color in this movie are mesmerizing and has that same deep or should we say "DEPP" undertone that we have grown to love in the Burton/Depp movies... If you are going into this movie thinking you follow along the same lines as the Disney store from 1949 then think again.. This has so much for DEPPth. If I was to create another card for this movie I think I would make a card with very sublet color and use more grey tones.. So many option for this challenge.. Enjoy getting in the Halloween spirit enjoy the show.

Get into the Fall/Halloween Spirit.

This weeks challenge requirement is to use a "Halloween Tree" anywhere on your project.
