The Lion King Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge

Happy Tuesday once again! It is time for another challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations! This week the challenge is a really fun one. You are being challenged to create a project or card inspired by a movie. This was tricky for me since I hardly ever watch movies, I would rather be crafting and when the TV is on I am a reality TV junkie or watching sports with husband. I am sure lots of you clever crafters have lots of ideas swirling around for this challenge so be sure to hop over to Scrap- Creations and play along with us this week!

I went about this challenge a bit differently. I first looked at what stamps and images I had then looked through all the videos we have here at home. I thought maybe one of the many hockey ones that I love on a snowy day, or maybe a comedy or thriller that my kids love. Then I saw The Lion King. I know it is an oldie but it was a favorite here for a long time. We watched it so much that I thought we wore it out. I then realized this Crissy Armstrong's Squigglefly lion family digi was perfect for the movie. This is the finished creation I did for the challenge. What do you think, were these two a perfect fit for a movie inspiration challenge?

The ladies this week really were inspired by their pick of favorite movies so be sure to stop by and check out their creations, you'll love them all!
