Good morning everyone! Ready for your day? I'm actually writing this late at night and I've only had 4 hours of sleep last night so please forgive me for any errors. I'll check again tomorrow.
This weeks cinema saturday challenge is based on the movie: A Night at the Museum and the added challenge of using a miniature. I'm not a huge fan but I sat down and watched the first part until I got the idea I wanted to run with. My favourite character is Theodore Roosevelt (Robin Williams) and during his first meeting with Ben Stiller's character he says "Nothing is impossible. Anything can be done." I tried the find out where that quote originated from but all I could find were philosophical debates about whether NOTHING really is impossible. (If it's the absent of something than it would be wouldn't it?) I know you're going think about that once your done reading aren't you?
So while my card is very simplistic (and I'm kind of disappointed because I forgot to add the stitching around the front sentiment before I added the spaceship) I really think this will be a very encouraging card to give to one of my kids when they are struggling.
Anyhow, the quote that inspired me got me to thinking about how President Roosevelt's (1901-1909) positivity and those like him allowed so much technical advancement to occur within the last 100 years. Here's a brief historical run down:
1903 - Wright brothers invent the airplane
1913 - First talking movie
1921 - First am radio broadcast
1961 - First man in Space (Yuri Gagarin)
1962 - Phillips invents the compact casset
1963 - First man to walk on the moon (Neil Armstrong)
All the elements in my card are meant to reflect those accomplishments including the miniature of the space ship. Thanks so much for letting me talk your ear off. I hope you have a super fabulous day.
