So tonight we (well I, cause Jeff fell asleep half way through it – I had a nap earlier, and am the night owl), watched Avatar, and it was amazing! OMG! Too funny, a week or so ago, we saw the commercial for it on TV, and Jeff and I were like we really need to go see that, then we realized the commercial was saying the DVD was coming out, so we were like oops, guess we won't see it in 3-D.
After watching it tonight on regular TV, I think I would have not liked it as much in 3-D, I might have been sick. I have to take motion pills when we cruise, and even take them when I fly, so the thought of me seeing this movie 3-D…ugh! So I think I am glad we waited, cause I know we would have opted for the 3-D one, plus I would have had to pee half way through and no one wants to pause a movie in the theater.
If you have not seen the movie, you really should, I can't get over the effects in it, and my goodness, you should see the longgggggggg list of names in the credits, at least it was on the end of the movie and not the beginning, like another movie I talked about recently…ha!
It was cool how the Avatars really looked like their characters. In fact I was telling Jeff either the main actor is indeed paralyzed as his legs were tiny in the film, or they altered them on the computer, remember in Forest Gump when they computerized that Gary Sinese had no legs below the knees at all, that was amazing. Well this is flawless. (I googled it – and I can't say that without thinking of my favorite vamp Edward Cullen – and indeed the actor is not paralyzed and the effects were done on the computer). No wonder there were a million names on the end in the credits. Kudos, and I am hoping there will be another one. It kinda ended like there might be.
OK enough of me blabbering.
This is another of the projects the girls did at my Big Shot class, I got this little milk carton container holder idea from my friend, the very talented Becky Roberts. She doubles hers up, but I did just a single box with 2 milk cartons in it. If you pop over to see Becky make sure to tell her I said "Hi".
Jumbo Wheel: Very Vintage (this is wheeled on the Milk carton, it's hard to see in the picture)
Paper: Taken With Teal, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Sweet Pea DSP
Ink: So Saffron
Misc: So Saffron striped ribbon, Pumpkin Pie grosgrain, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Large Oval punch, Pretties half back pearls, Mini Milk carton Bigz L Die, Jumbo handle
Well this old gal is off to beddie bye.
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in!

Glad to hear you finally saw Avatar! It was an amazing movie. We did get to it in 3D and absolutely loved it. It was done just right, not too much movement and such. The work on his legs were so realistic it was scary. He is the lead actor in Clash of the Titans in theaters right now – with working legs!

OOh I am first. I love this, it is so cute. The colors are pretty amazing too. I will be sad to see Taken With Teal go but excited about the new colors coming. The wonderful news is SU is extending the mini milk carton die. How sweet it is!! I haven't seen Avatar either. Somehow I can't see dh sitting longer than 45 minutes then having to get up and roam. That is part of the reason we tend to just get pay per view. Have a wonderful Sunday.

I agree with you the movie was AMAZING!! I've heard talk that there is going to be another one and it's going to take place under water. I can't wit!! 🙂
I thought the exact same thing about Sam Worthington's legs. I googled it as soon as I got home! But they took molds of a paraplegic's legs to make the legs for him. It was seamless. Very well done – and yes, he is the lead role in Clash of the Titans and he has "buff" legs!!! I think you would have been okay with the 3-D in this one – it's not like the old 3-D ones with the red and green that make your eyes hurt when you are watching it – it was the new format of 3-D and was awesome – we watched it at home as well – movie was still great – but 3-D was WAAAAAAY better!
