bird.i.y. flashback: movie ticket save the date

yes, i have posted these pictures before. i apologize. but 1. i love our save the dates, and 2. i'm lazy. i was very busy this week reading stieg larsson books and looking at pictures of chris pine (hello golden globes beard), so clearly i didn't have enough time to do an actual diy. instead i'm re-sharing how i created our save the dates. so let's play a fun game called, "guess that movie"...

movie # 1
a. sixteen candles
b. dumb and dumber
c. star wars
movie #2
a. stepbrothers
b. e.t.
c. pretty woman
movie #3
a. transformers
b. smurfs: the movie
c. the notebook

and here we go. the answers are 1.a, 2. c, 3. c. See below for the comparisons.
and here is our actual save the date. (with last names blocked out. i'm not sure why.) we took all the pictures ourselves....ok, nora bird actually took the pretty womand and awkward notebook pictures. we were in our shower with a blue blanket hanging behind us, and she probably took 100 pictures. this is the only one that was decent enough for our card. not because of her picture taking ability, but because chris and i clearly aren't actors, and we clearly don't feel comfortable making sweet rain love in our shower with nora taking pictures.

we used to create the card; they already had the movie strip template, and we just added our pictures and text. et voila...easy as pie!

happy friday!
