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?

We also have a fabulous sponsor this week, Fred She Said Digital Stamps
I used two of these wonderful images to create my card. I fell in love with wheelbarrow a while ago and then when I saw the pumpkins and sunflower arrangement I knew they would go great together. To make the flowers in the wheelbarrow look fallish I colored them then put yellow, purple, red and Autumn mix Flower Soft on them. I finished it off with punched out leaves from fall DP CS that I brushed with Stickles and left them popping out of the Flowers Soft. It is hard to see in the pic but this card SPARKLES so much. All the leaves have orange Stickles, the sunflower centers are also Stickled. One of the panels of DP are glittered dots and the flower buttons are glitter also.
Tracy has graciously given each of the DTs a Fall image to use as inspiration for you this week. The fantastic prize being offered this week from Fred She Said's Digital Store .

I made this card for one of the boys that moved up to middle school this year. He was so nervous about leaving our school and moving up that I told him I was going to write to him right after school started in Sept. and let him know he did great the first few days of school! He'll just be happy to know I was thinking of him! He was a bit of a daredevil so I thought this boy with the skateboard was perfect for him. I tried to give his shirt a tye die look using just the orange. What do you think?
