Cinema with the kids

I was feeling a little guilty because we haven't filled the holidays back to back with stuff for the kids to do, so we went to the cinema today. Trying to get a film to please a little girly 6 year old, a bit older girly 7 year old and a very trying to be cool pre teen 12 year old boy is a pretty tall order.

So we went to see Mr Bean's Holiday.

Predictible.

Silly.

But lots of laughs.

Then again I love kids films. We are all excited by the trailers up and running for films to come too the must sees for my kids (and me!) are Shrek 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Can't wait for either of them.

So what film is on your must see list in the foreseeable future? Post your answer in the comments section of this post to be in with a chance to win a RAK from the very inspirational and most generous Wilna. You need to answer this question, then, to be eligible for the RAK, you need to visit some other blogs and leave comments there too. Here is her blog: Wilna, so you can see what else you need to do!

Also check out the fabby competition Kirsty has got running for all lovers of BOM's. Scrap your hands. There are stacks of cool prizes lined up already. Digi, paper or hybrid pages are all welcome as I am sure are international entries (best check that out on Kirsty's blog mind). You ought to bookmark Kirsty's site, she does some great digi freebies and very gorgeous photos too.


My entry is actually a page I did around this time last year, it was a challenge run on another board to create your own stamps. As you can see, I took the easy way out!

Fab LO Suzanne. We are all looking forward to the New Harry Potter film ~ Order of the Phoenix, Pirates of the Caribbean 3 & Shrek 3. We are all big kids at heart in our house (DH included) lol.

My hubby is deployed so I don't get to see any movies, plus we have twin 2 year olds, lol. But the military has a great program for deployed spouses to drop their kids off at daycare on one saturday a month, that is tomorrow!!!! I am so excited. I want to go see the Adam Sandler movie-Reign over me. It will probably make me cry though b/c hubby is over in the war, but I think it will also be really good.

congrats on MM Idol and good luck next round :)

Kimberly White said...

What a great layout! Thanks for sharing it (I think I'm inspired!)

My must see film ... my sil told me to rent Marie Antoinette because the costumes are just amazing! So maybe I'll do that this weekend!

Wishing you success! Kim

Kimber-Leigh said...

Hi Suzanne! Can't wait to see what you create next in the final round! Best wishes to you!

I am really excited to see Spiderman 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean 3...it really is the year for third sequels, huh? And I really want to see Miss Potter, but somehow I missed it and am waiting impatiently for the dvd to come out!

ginajam said...

hi...wow! you have some amazing layouts and best of luck in the next round. you are doing such a good job!

i guess this might be kind of lame, but I'm looking forward to a movie called Transformers (I think), cause it has a guy in it who is from my hometown in N.D. Gotta support the locals who make something of themselves!!

Thanks for the fun game!!

kirstenjuenke said...

Continued success to you - I feel the same about my own hands, but get this - I just had a manicure today for the first time in (shhhh!) three years. And they look so pretty, they don't look like my hands at all.
Besides the movies you mentioned, Spiderman 3 is on my list...and another I need to watch since reading the book is The Painted Veil.

DeniseLynn said...

Your work is so fun! Wilna sent me and I'm glad she did. My goodness I don't tend to watch movies. Life is so short and if I've got free time I'd rather be creating something or doing a craft with the kids. If I do see anything in the near future it will have to be rated G ... what's out there that's G ?? anything?

Jody said...

COming up in my movie horizon is SpiderMan 3...a little Toby Maguire is always fun for a couple of hours. =) I most recently loved 'Music and Lyrics"' with Drew barrymore and Hugh Grant. There were so many great lines in it, I have to see it again! Happy belated bday to your Baby. =) Happy Friday too!!

Anna-Marie Still said...

Still dying to see that Will Smith movie that was up for Oscars this year - I can't even think of the name of it right now - how pathetic is that!

DH & I are also dying to see Spiderman 3.

k8tykat said...

oh my.
i've had the bbc version of
pride & prejudice
from netflix
for about three weeks now
definfitly looking forward
to when i can take a few hours
and sit and watch that!

KA aka jeffs*bride said...

I want to see night at the museum. still trying to convince my husband to rent it. Mostly because i think ben stiller is hot....

ka- kayla aimee

Jewels said...

Do I have to pick one!? :oD

Ok, I haven't seen 300 yet, and I've heard that the art was fantastic in it, blood and gore aside.

And one friend told me that Ghost Rider was a lot better than it looked like it would be, so that's on my list.

But there's one movie on my list that I can't wait to watch: Veggie Tales: a Snoodle's Tale.

Any movie with a fun word like "Snoodle" in the title has got to be something. ;o)

leslie said...

Awesome layout! Congrats on making it to the top 3 - your work is wonderful.
As for movies... there are so many! But right now I really want to see 300

me..... said...

Hi there. we went to see Mr Bean on Tuesday and it was good relaxation. No brainer... We are hoping to see Meet the Robinsons soon. Have a wonderful weekend

Suzanne,
Love the hand LO...I may need to do one of these. You work is fabulous and I wish you the best of luck in the competition!! I think we will be going to see "Meet the Robinson's"..new Disney movie. Our 2 1/2 year old is just getting into the movies and he loves it and it makes for a rather relaxing 2 hours. Take care and good luck!!
Sarah

Chris Millar said...

Hi Suzanne, hope you've been having a fantastic week and that your daughters b'day was fab! Gorgeous layout here!!!!!

I'm really looking forward to see '300' at the movies. It's just come to the cinemas in Australia and I think it's definitely a movie to be seen on the big screen!!!

Have a super weekend!

KellieD said...

You picked the best thought to teach any girl - yours or others! I love your LO.
Your question is the toughest - I don't watch movies very often. Pirates of the Caribbean 3 sounds good - as long as I get to watch the first 2 uninterrupted first! LOL
Have a great weekend creating!

noell said...

I am over here for the first time from Wilna's blog.

I'm not sure how to answer this question because I really do not pay attention to movies! I'll say 300, although, I doubt it will be in any time soon!

Roslyn said...

Visiting from Wilna's blog...I'm looking forward to watching "Meet the Robinson's" with my kids. The preview I saw was hilarious!

Dettao said...

I honestly cannot remember the last time I went to a movie! My daughter says the the movie 300 is pretty awesome so maybe I would try that.

Andrea said...

I'm a DVD girl!!! I would love to see "Faith Like Potatoes"....looks amazing!!!

Have a fun weekend :)

coRinne not connie said...

love the work you're doing! keep on going!

my movie(s) to see.... Shrek 3, Priates 3, and i've still not seen Casino Royale... here's hoping!

Liz Ness said...

WOW! Love your art...so glad Wilna sent us over! As for the must see movie for the season, I'm thinking it's going to be Shrek 3, too. Just read that it's highly anticipated by Parent's Mag. So, that sounds like a good choice. (But, Johnny is someone I gotta see, too, heh-heh.)

Lisa C. said...

So love your "hands" layout! Mind if I scraplift it?? =)

Movie in the near future..it will have to be Shrek 3. Kids are so looking forward to this. Thanks for the inspiration and best of luck to you!!

Eminepala said...

I want to see a turkish movie called OGLUM... It means my son...

Good luck with the MM contest ;)

Juel said...

I would like to see The Night at the Museum.

Have fun with the contest!!

~~Carla~~ said...

One that I can't wait to see is "Amazing Grace". Also "The Secret".

Carolyn said...

I must seen Pirates of the Caribbean 3, after they left me hang with that end on part 2... So, this will be the next one I must see. I need to know how Jack is. LOL

good luck on Monday!

Colors of Me said...

I am with Carolyn - Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and Shrek 3. With 5 kids, both of these films are bound to make all of them happy!

Rita said...

What a great layout with your hands -- very nice!

My next must see movie is probably Harry Potter/Order of the Phoenix -- and Pirates 3 is a very close runner up!

Good luck with MM Idol!

mickeyt said...

I think your layouts are simply gorgeous!
And I think the movie I want to see next is Hoax!

Jan C. said...

Love your hands layout. Think I'll check out Kirsty's site and see what that's all about.

As for films, I am really looking forward to the next Harry Potter. And Spiderman 3 will probably also be on my short list.

Melissa Salomon said...

Suzanne,
I loved your "hands" layout. Wow!
Melissa

WendyG said...

Definitely "Blades of Glory".......love a good funny film anytime!!!! LOL

Lisa said...

Oooo my 'must see' movie coming up would be Shrek 3. We are planning on taking the kids to the theater to see it. They are 3 & 4 and we've never taken them yet, so we're very much looking foward to it!!!

Very nice LO! It looks so feminine and pretty! Keep up the great work on idols! I loved your last LO there! So pretty!

Lori B said...

Love scary movies!! I'm looking forward to checking out that new movie (dont know the name of it)but it's the one where the couple check into a motel room and turn on the tv and see things that have happened in that room. I'm sure it will freak me out!!

Congratulations on being top 3 in MM Idol!!

Lori

jacqui said...

Firstly, congratulations on getting to the top 3 of the MM Idols contest. I have to say I can't wait to see Shrek 3 and wouldn't mind a good laugh with Mr Bean's holiday. Just haven't had the time to get to the movies. Can't wait to see your next creation.

Yizz said...

Just want to say congrats on making it so far in the MM Idol cont - you deserve it because your work is brilliant (love the hands LO btw)

I was dragged out to see 300 the other week - it wasnt as fantastic as the reviews say, the blood and gore were def. very plastic looking, which was a good thing as I dont do blood LOL. I've been looking forward to Pirates 3 ever since Pirates 1 but my top must see is HP, my DVD's of the first 4 films have been watched to death!

{Lara} said...

Well done on your MM success so far!

I would love to see a movie, any movie! Seriously I haven't been out to a movie in over a year! I did get to see one on an airplane recently though. So hope that counts somewhere!

caro said...

Hello Suzanne,

Congrats! great to see a contestant who is halfway closer to where we are, In South Africa!

Loved the way you did the embellishments on your wall art. In fact, if I could have made it full screen, I'd still be staring!

'Your hands' say a lot, but the same tone comes through in your art. very genuine & loving.

Well done!

caro said...

Film -
?????
so NOT GOOD at doing that....


Must get some oldies done tho'
was thinking about "lorenzo's oil"

Oh well, oneday, and probably only on video.

albenton said...

Hey! I'm Amber & I love, love, LOVE your work. (I voted for you!) Anyways, I just wanted to wish you good luck on the next round of MM Idol! The next movie on my to-see list is Faith Like Potatoes! I just have to find a little time to watch it...I'm so busy! Have a beautiful day!

sharma said...

look forward to perfect stranger with Bruce willis and my son is all about spiderman 3 so that one is much anticipated in my house at the moment

serendscrappity said...

Love your work! Good luck.

I missed "The Queen" when it was on the circuit so can't wait for the dvd to be released here in South Africa.

Cheers
Natasha

Theresa Tyree said...

WOW! Stunning page Suzanne!
Sweet Wilna sent me over here. I'm so glad I found you!
Being a mom, I also share the same must see list as you:
Shrek 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Can't wait for either of them too! Well, I'm being a little dishonest when I say that I can't wait for the Pirates movie because of my kids. I'm secretly in love with Johnny Depp! Ha ha!

Kelly said...

I want to see Wild Hogs (has only just come out here) and Rocky Balboa (new here too).
Also can't wait for the new Harry Potter...it's been a long time coming!!

Have a great weekend ;o)

Wilna said...

good morning!

priyasvenkat said...

Hello Suzanne. Congratulations to you and Best of Luck for the next round. My family is looking forward to Harry Potter this summer- both the movie and THE BOOK. That's all my son talks of these days. Also looking forward to 2 Tamil movies releasing this summer. Looks like I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the theatres this summer!! Priya

Lynn said...

Wild Hogs for me :-) John Travolta, yum! I've seen lots of trailers over the last week and it looks great. I'll also be in the queue for Pirates of Caribbean 3 - Johnny Depp is fabulous in his Jack Sparrow role.

Last but not least many congrats on your MM idols achievement - you must be proud :-)

kara jones said...

i've always love this layout! I can see future generations being very grateful that you made this page.

Sara said...

Spiderman 3!!! Comes out in 3 weeks...just in time for my husband's birthday.

NikNak said...

My favorite all time movie for now Something New...the story of a black woman that falls in love with a white man. A wonderful love story that tackles the issues that come with interracial relationships/marriages.
Nakira

Misty said...

I LOVE to go to the movies and I can't WAIT for the drive-in to open for the summer. We love going to the drive in for several reasons - it's cheap - 2 movies for $10 - we don't have to find a sitter - and the kids go to sleep after the first movie so we still have a little "us" time. I can't wait to see Spiderman 3, and Pirates 3, oh and the next Harry Potter. Can't wait!

Sharon said...

We just took our 6 yr. old grand daughter to see *Meet the Robinsons* in 3-D!
If you have small children that haven't seen a 3-D movie, I recommend it highly.
Truthfully Grandpa and I got a big kick out of it too...

Julie said...

Love your layouts - lots of fun! I rarely go to a movie - I ship my husband and the kids off and I scrapbook, hehe. But the next movie I will likely see is Pirates of the Caribbean 3.

Jill said...

My son and I have a "date" to go see Meet the Robinsons. It sounds like it will be a really cute one!

Thanks!
Jill

Sonia said...

i think the next film on the list is spiderman 3! the trailers are awesome!

Best of luck to you!
~Sonia

forestsister said...

well, having just seen 'blades of glory' i might be ruined for all other films from now on. who can really replace chazz michael michaels??

okay... if i MUST go see another, i wouldn't mind see that scary looking one with luke wilson and kate beckinsdale...'VACANCY' this is totally out of character for me, but hey...sometimes a good scare is in order to get the scrap juices flowing!! ha.

Brittany said...

I am really looking forward to watching "Oceans 13".

I watched the first two and what more could you ask for in a film, I think it has the hottest men and best actors put together all in one amazing movie. Im very excited.

Good Luck!!

Pamela Posch said...

great lo, love the flowers "in you hair". Good luck on the next round of the MM idol.

Ben said...

movies..i want to see the one with will smith in it, cant remember the name...but being a mama too three kids under 5 means i dont get to watch that many movies..would sure love to though.

sarah

fairhill25 said...

Suzanne, beautiful layout. Great job.

My fav films are two at the moment. I want to see the Pirates of Caribbean 3 and the new Harry Potter.
I know I am still a kid at heart when it comes to movies. I love all movies but scary ones.
Kathy

Wilna said...

Good luck for this last week!
