Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #100 Pride and Prejudice

Welcome to the 100th challenge.

What an amazing adventure this ride has been.. I still remember my sweetheart telling me a girl named Sankari called for you.... I think my jaw hit the floor.. What? I said.. She sill call you back again later? I had met this beautiful girl through Kristina Werner's Color challenge. We had shared sweet exchanges with one another and we had both noticed that we had been listing what movie we had been watching at the bottom of our posts.. When I finally got the return call I was just completely excited and in shock at the same time... Once I heard the voice on the other end of the phone.. I felt like I was being reunited with one of my oldest and dearest friends ever. We talked for hours and hours.. AMAZING!!! At this point I find it really hard to have more than a couple days go by and not here that ray of sunshine on the other end of the phone.. I truly have the dearest and sweetest friend ever... And do you want to know the hardest part of it all.. We have never meet in person.. I know!!!! We live SOO far from each other. WE WILL MEET heart to heart some day.. WE WILL...

I love you forever
I love you for always
as long as I'm living
my dear friend you'll be...

I love you my Sunny Sankari.

You won't want to miss her fabulous project here. She will truly amaze you..


My project inspired my the 100th challenge

Jane Austen's
First you have no idea how hard it is to narrow it down to one inspiration.. I think we chatted for hours on what to pick for you all... We just love so many things about this move... AND THANKS to all of you who voted for this movie.. It's only the best movie EVER!

When I was chatting to my sweet DH about what to make he really dove into this challenge.. He suggested that I make something about Elizabeth's muddy boots and hemline.. He though it really reflected what she was all about.. A bold young lady who wasn't afraid to do what ever she wanted even if she was told it wasn't what a young lady should do... But yet she was still refined and elegant... I love that idea but really couldn't wrap my brain around what I would make with that in mind.. So we chatted a little more and though that the letter exchanged between Mr Darcy and Elizabeth was a really great place to start...

If you can imagine with me you might even agree that Ms Bennett(Elizabeth) would have most defiantly keep the letters she had received from Mr Darcy. She would have savored every work wether she agreed with them or not. She would have analyzed the penmanship and tried to make out what kind of a gentleman he really was... I think she would have keep them with her when she traveled as well. She would have made a special box to keep them in fashioned out of some of the trimmings that she and her sisters would have had on hand to make bonnets and bows... I would like to think that the secret piece of lace was from a dress that she might have been wearing and maybe even been noticed in my Mr Darcy... My sweetheart and I also agreed after her visit to Pemberly that she would have kept this picture in her keepsake box as well. She would have had to draw her picture but we will share one of our favorites from our trip to Pemberly... My Sweetie also quoted "And to think... Of all this I might have been mistress"
p.s. If you haven't guessed yet.. My Sweetheart and I BOTH love all things Jane Austen... Luck me...

OOOOOhhh the heart-ach these two cause.. I love every minute of it...

This last year when my grandfather passed we were able to have a few of my grandparents for keepsakes.. When I noticed these little Jane Austen era pictures I totally wanted them.. I remembered these as a little girl. My Maternal grandmother had made them for my paternal grandmother... What a sweet connection I can now think of them both as I look at these pictures and share my love of Pride and Prejudice...

"This is ardently exquisite and passionate..." as Mr. Darcy might say back then. But fast forward to 2010, Mr. Darcy would probably shout out to you: "You totally ROCK with the sunny Sankari, Brooke!Love ya!"
PS: I adore the sweet box that you made...aw...love!
