Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #31

Today I was so excited to come home and make cards for this week's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. The movie this week is Steel Magnolias. I had never seen this movie until I watched it on YouTube yesterday. Wow. Sad. Not a good idea to watch it on Mother's Day. It was sooo sad! It was also hilarious. If you have never seen it, I recommend it! Also, all day at school today I kept hearing and saying the name Shelby...I never realized it, but I have a Shelby in every one of my Monday classes....

My favorite character was Truvy, played by the fabulous Dolly Parton. Here are a few of my favorite quotes: (I was especially inspired by the last one for this week's cards...I couldn't make just one!)
Truvy: In a good shoe, I wear a size six, but a seven feels so good, I buy a size eight.
Honey, time marches on and eventually you realize it is marchin' across your face.
Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.
I have a strict policy that nobody cries alone in my presence.
Smile! It increases your face value.

One of the requirements this week was to use PINK:
Shelby: My colors are "blush" and "bashful."
M'Lynn: Her colors are "pink" and pink."
Shelby: My colors are "blush" and "bashful" Mama!
Shelby: Pink is my signature color.

Here are my cards. At one point at the end, someone (I think Sally Field) says that 'they are Tickled Pink'....I HAD to use my new Tickled pink paper. Also, since the wedding colors were blush and bashful, I used plenty of blush ink and card stock!

Life is Good. Card # 1

Love is like a butterfly. Card #2 (I forgot to photograph the says 'it goes where it pleases, and pleases where it goes'...a perfect quote for this movie!)

Smile. It increases your face value. Card #3
