Well, better late than never!  I really expected to have a million ideas after seeing the movie - you DID go see it by now, haven't you???  But I don't!  And I have no idea why... maybe it is an anticipation hangover. Blurry Drunk
Yeah, I'll go with that.   Anyhow, here is what I came up with:

movie1I felt like the movie was straight to the point - right from the book.  (Except that stupid & unnecessary, but funny, field trip scene.) Remember those gems that Eve sent me a few weeks ago?  I used those to adorn the side, and eventually, I will pick a unique-to-the-movie quote to (yikes) handwrite up the side above the lovely jewels.   If you cannot tell, I used silver metallic paper to cutout the title with, using my Cricut (LOVE it!) and used my favorite Charbon DSP from Stampin' Up for the background paper.  (Wish they would keep black and gray DSP around all the time!)  Finally,  I found a picture I liked (and hadn't seen before - it's a good one, too!) and printed it on vellum and ripped it out.  What a chore THAT was - ripping in a circle! If you've never ripped vellum, it always rips differently horizontally than vertically.  It's just the way it is woven.  YOU go try and make a decent, controlled tear of a circle!  I wanna see it!  :)  But, I digress... 

I liked the movie.  As I have said everywhere I have posted, I want to see it again, now that I have scoured it for details and correctness.  LOL  I ruined some of the joy of it for myself by doing that.   Also, I have said that Rob Pattinson is an excellent Edward, even in the 'weird' scenes.  Surprisingly, I didn't hate Kristen Stewart as Bella - she was good!  LOVED Charlie and Taylor Lautner was a super Jacob.  I can't wait to see more of him in New Moon - he was very comfortable in the character.  Fantastic.  I could go on and on, but you really don't want to hear my expert review! :)

I thought all the characters were good choices but Jacob...we'll have to see how I feel when he's a werewolf;) I loved the movie. The scene in the kitchen at Edward's was pretty funny! jerryb17011@yahoo.com

Beth, this is just beautiful! It looks like such a keepsake. And I can't believe that you managed to uncover a new photo -- I've not seen that one either! Beautiful job on this.
