YEAH! I finally get to play along with the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge blog challenge. Often I had never seen the movie or wasn’t in a position to see it or the timing just didn’t work. This week, however, I couldn’t really pass up playing along.
The movie this week is Titanic. I really enjoy this movie and love me some Kate & Leo — heck, even consider Kate Winslet my “girl crush”. *blush* My husband not only loves that I have a girl crush (LOL!), but also loves this movie. However, I am not sure he will ever admit that to anyone other than myself!
One of my favorite parts of the movie is after the formal dinner, when Jack takes Rose down to third class to dance & party. I love the Celtic music being played and the dancing…how Rose kicks off her shoes and starts dancing, going painfully high on her tippy toes…how she “lowers” herself to third class behavior. You can find a video of this scene on YouTube HERE.
For my card, I chose the There She Goes Blessings set. I love the Celtic cross in this set. Since the challenge requirement was to add blue & silver, I decided to stamp the cross with Versamark and emboss it with silver embossing powder. Heat embossing was never my thing and I only have limited powders. I can now see how a super-fine, high quality powder would be a good thing. I cut, embossed and mounted the cross with oval Nesties.
The sentiment fits Jack very well, I thought. Jack lived life to the fullest – taking risks, being passionate, etc. I could totally hear Jack saying this sentiment “May you LIVE as long as you want, and may you never want as LONG as you live.”
