Golden Years

Time for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.  This week’s challenge, #61, is A Knight’s Tale. …

So I remember going to this movie when it came out.  Emma wasn’t 2 yet & Malcolm was a newborn. We rarely went out to the movies or out at all, because I was nursing & we never had any spare money for sitters and the activity out.

Long story short:  I picked this movie, probably because of Heath Ledger. My DH loathed it.  It was his running joke in our home for the next several months that I was not permitted to chose the movie when we went out. I liked the soundtrack.  DH liked the soundtrack, but not with the movie.  Make sense?  As an example, at the two minute mark in this clip is the reason DH couldn’t suspend his belief & enjoy the movie …

Okay so with our little odd family history, here’s my take on the movie.

A coupon … LOL … that’s what I love about this challenge.  You can take anything from it:  music, colours, themes, emotions, or in our case, memories.  :D

Incase you’re wondering, on the flip side, DH has picked movies that I didn’t like.   That’s the good thing about your spouse or friends for that matter , they are always giving you second/third/etc chances.  (most recently:  funny people.  Why wouldn’t that movie just end?)

Cute faux leather technique, eh?

I used a technique from Beate at SplitCoastStampers to make the faux leather wallet.  She even has a cool video Tutorial.

You could put in cash, a gift certificate or a homemade gift certificate (always fun to come up with ideas!)

Used:  Creamy Caramel SU CS, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Ranger Distressing Ink (Walnut Stain, Vintage Linen), Versa Mark Ink, Clear EP, SU Create a Coupon Stamp Set, Make a Wish Stamp Set, SU Olive EP, Old Olive Ink, Sewing Machine, SU Circle Punch, Cream CS.

Pin It!

  • This is really cool, Amy! What a fabulous idea! BTW, we rented Funny People last weekend and I was wondering when it would end too! The good think about renting a movie is that you can just turn it off!

  • Amy!! This is marvelous!!! That is such a great idea to create these as little gifts and the idea of a coupon is awesome!!!! That was actually one of my most fave parts of the movie – when it transitioned into that song! LOVED it!!! That is hilarious about your DH!
