"Forrest Gump"

This is a wonderful movie. I've seen it before, but I think that watching it this week was probably only the 2nd time I've watched it.

Thanks to Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge for choosing it for this week's challenge inspiration...I got to see it again! I've been following CSCC for months, but I finally got my computer know-how up to challenge level.

I chose Forrest's suitcase, and his mother's advice, "You have to to do the best with what God gave you" as my inspiration. Forrest took his suitcase, filled with his favorite things, on most of his ventures.

If Forrest was a real person, I'd love him too.

To make my note card I used Stampin Up materials and stamps:
Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise (inspired by all his blue shirts) and Very Vanilla C.S.; Linen background (ret.) and Smarty Pants stamp set; large oval and large and small tag punches; and retired Choc. Chip ribbon.


  1. What a very original idea! Love your note card! Welcome to blogland!

  2. I love the suitcase (as Forrest loves his!).
    Great job Grammie, and welcome to your first challenge!! I'll try to get mine up by tomorrrow a.m.

  3. I love it! You're so creative. Great job!

  4. WOW! I love the suitcase... How perfect! Welcome to tour challenge! Your project Rocks! Thanks for playing with us this week!
