Default MAY09MINIVSN3 ~ Sat. April 25th ~ 12:00pm EDT ~ Cirque Du Soleil

Title: Cirque Du Soleil
Hostess: Carole (FibreJunky)
Keyword: MAY09MINIVSN3
Date: April 25th, 2009
Time: 12:00pm EDT


I love Cirque Du Soleil and I’ve been a Beatles fan since I was a kid. How lucky are we now that the two have joined forces? Only in Vegas, right?

The Mirage is home to one of the most incredible shows to come to Las Vegas. Cirque Du Soleil is an international sensation and their LOVE celebrates the timeless music of The Beatles, reworking original master tapes into a fabulous soundscape and pairing them with Cirque Du Soleil's trademark stunning visuals.

So, what is your challenge?
Create a card, layout, altered item – anything you can make within 45 minutes – inspired by one of the songs from the LOVE soundtrack.
The songs are listed here and they can be heard (by clicking on Listen) here. When posting, please specify which song inspired you!


UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EDT ON MONDAY, April 27
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword MAY09MINIVSN3 when uploading your image.
Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

We just turned on the Love soundtrack. Thought it would be a good idea for some musical accompaniment.

Great challenge Carole. The Beatles were one of my favorites groups. My girlfriends and I used to play secretary. We each chose a Beatle and pretended to be their secretary, taking messages and booking gigs. Great memories.

My original card was nothing like the one I ended up posting. It had diamond DP, cellophane flowers and a blue base card. It just didn't look like I wanted it to.

Absolutely!!! You have 45 minutes from the time you start working on a card (or other project) to complete it. That's on the honour system. Post to the gallery by 10pm EDT Monday.

We're always glad to see new people around here! Nice to meet you! I'm Carole or FJ, depending on which you prefer to type. I also answer to Mama if you're one of my kids or their friends.

Cool challenge Carole! You know I'm more of a Monkees fan (as we've discussed), but I think this will work!

I have no idea what your song is Cav. It's not obvious at all.
