Birthday Scrapping and Trying a New Product

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 20.11

I had fun in my scraproom today.  In addition to working on a "to be revealed later" project, I also did some scrapping of the Birthday photos.  I used a new (to me) product on the scrap pages, Fabric Paper by Dear Lizzie and American Crafts.  It is fabric that is backed with an ultra-thin adhesive foam. The fabric paper cuts nicely with my paper trimmer, though I did not try it on the Cricut today.  Don't worry, I have more of the fabric paper and that will be my next experiment.

I purchased my fabric paper at Taylored Expressions.  I used two sheets of the 12 x 12 inch fabric paper, removing the middle section with the trimmer (and saving it for later - I am thinking cute cards!).  I also purchased a package of the 6 x 6 inch fabric paper and plan to use it on some cards.

I used Base Camp and Storybook cartridges to complete my layout.  I cut the phrase Happy 50th Birthday with Base Camp and attached the letters to the flag banner at the top of the fabric paper. I then cut a two layer tag using Storybook where I matted the computer printed journaling.  My friend Kathy gives me grief for not journaling often enough so I am working to mend my ways!

I cut an extra tag set and affixed it under the edge of one of the HUGE-I-FIED Prima flowers.  The other Prima flower is on the left page, afloat on a field of flowers.  I used three lazer cut pink flowers from my stash of long ago purchased die cuts.  Between die cuts and alphabets that I no longer purchase, I should be saving money... Well, except for those new cartridges!!

I have to say that I quite like the Dear Lizzy Fabric Paper and look forward to using more.  I am not sure where else you can purchase the fabric paper, but I plan to "google" it and find out if there are other patterns.

Deepika gives Imran a 'lift'

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 13.49

She carried him on her back while they were shooting for 'Break Ke Baad'!

Yes, that's Deepika Padukone carrying Imran Khan on her back! Why on earth, you wonder? Just for laughs! The two have been shooting together for 'Break Ke Baad' and they've been having a lot of fun together. During the shoot in Delhi, Deepika is believed to have become quite close to Imran's girlfriend Avantika as well. But let's talk about this picture, which, by the way, was posted by Deepika herself on her Twitter account.

For a scene in the movie, Imran was required to carry Deepika. Deepika joked that she didn't think Imran could do it. To which Imran joked back, "I'll show her..." Then, turning the idea of a hero carrying a heroine around, Deepika carried Imran on her back! The two were just goofing around of course. And we have to admit it makes for a very funny picture, and it's always good to see stars with a sense of humour!

Preity's IPL team loses again

Mumbai Indians defeated Kings XI Punjab; star's team is at the bottom of the points chart

Preity Zinta's IPL team, Kings XI Punjab, lost a thriller to the Mumbai Indians at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai today (March 30). The Mumbai Indians won by four wickets; Kings XI had scored 163, while the Mumbai team ended with 164/6. It was a close match until the end, with the Mumbai Indians needing six runs from six balls in the final over.

Preity had predicted that the match would be thrilling. She’d tweeted, “We have always had the most exciting games with M.I in the past ! Hope today is also a thriller with lots of 6's,4's, and free hits !” Sportingly, she’d also admitted that the Mumbai Indians’ Sachin Tendulkar was her favourite player. Preity had posted on her Twitter account before the game, “Hey guys !All excited for the game tonight & 2 c Sachin, my fav player in this whole world play !”

But it wasn’t an exciting result for the actress. She looked very tense towards the end of the match. This defeat means that from the eight games her team has played, they’ve lost seven, and managed just one win. Preity is well aware of the equation. She tweeted post match, “Guys I need LUCK !!! Lots of it ! Only good thing about tonight was that v played well & Sachin got d Orange cap !”

Sachin also had a lot of star support at the match, even apart from Preity. Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan, Suneil Shetty, Salman Khan’s sister Arpita, Kunal Kapoor, Geeta Basra and Diana Hayden were all at the match cheering for Sachin and the Mumbai Indians team.

Asin voted Youth Icon of Kerala

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 13.45

The public poll was conducted by the Asianet TV channel

Asin may not have had a hit with her last movie ‘London Dreams’ but she’s definitely a hit with her fans, particularly in her home state Kerala. The actress has been voted Youth Icon of Kerala.
"The poll was conducted for over 15 days and involved a lot of personalities. Asin came out the winner since she is intelligent and representative of the thinking youth. She is talented, beautiful and has done Kerala proud," said a source.

On March 26, the actress was given the honour in the presence of the Who's Who of the south Indian film industry and political leaders.

"A seven-year-old fan of Asin presented her the award since she idolises Asin. It was a touching gesture and overwhelmed Asin," said the source.

The actress was also awarded a cash prize which she donated to a hospital's palliative care department that concentrates on reducing the severity of disease symptoms.

Ranbir Kapoor all set to direct

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 13.19

Actor Ranbir Kapoor is snapping up film offers and endorsements by the dozens at the moment. But the actor is planning to take some time off at the end of this year to go behind the camera and direct a film.

“When he decided he wanted to join Bollywood, his plans were to revive the RK banner and direct films. And that’s why he decided to assist Sanjay Leela Bhansali. However, when acting offers came his way, he took them on. However, all those in his inner circle always knew that it was a matter of time before Ranbir would direct. That’s something he is extremely passionate about,” says a friend of the actor.

Sources close to the star tell us that while Ranbir has been busy wrapping up his movies, he has also been hearing various scripts.

“He is very keen to take the RK banner back to where it was during his grandfather’s days. He is looking at directing a feel-good family movie… Something that would make the late Raj Kapoor very proud. His parents, especially his father, are helping him every step of the way. He has a lot of encouragement from both his uncles too for reviving the RK banner,” says the friend.

At the moment, Ranbir Kapoor has his kitty filled with big directors and banners casting him as the lead, with almost every leading actress ready to act opposite him. However, Kapoor is quite keen to go back to his original plan of directing.

“It’s not a case of choosing one over the other. I would like to revive the RK banner. And it won’t be easy. But I plan to work as hard on doing that as I do on my acting,” says Kapoor earnestly.

And it is keeping his directing plans in mind that Ranbir hasn’t signed on a spate of films. Almost through with Ananjani Anjaani with Priyanka Chopra, Ranbir only has Anurag Basu’s Khamoshi on hand.

Sonam is Sania!

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 13.18

Much has been talked about Aneez Bazmee’s Thank You and now all is set to start. Thank You stars Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Bobby Deol. It’s a romantic comedy.

The story connects it to Indian Tennis Player Sania Mirza. You must be thinking how? Not because she is getting married on the same day when the film will go on the floors. But Sonam Kapoor will play a character strikingly similar to Sania.

“She plays a sweet and sporty tennis player in the film. Sonam plays a state-level tennis champ in Canada so she cannot afford to look amateurish while playing the game in my film. I don’t expect her to become a tennis champ in a week but she should look like a professional,” says Anees Bazmee.

He also adds that, “Sonam is a bright actress and I know she will pick up soon and Akshay plays the Casanova who dates lots of girls until Sonam enters his life. It’s a light comedy film and we will start shooting in April in Canada. So now I am packing my bags and getting ready.”

Easter Cards - Two From One

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 16.17

Have you been by Custom Crops yet this week to check out this week's new articles and projects?  There is a whole lot of Easter going on at CC!  And of course I contributed to the Easter Fest.  Using Cricut Design Studio I designed one cut file that creates two great cards!  The first card is my sad, sad attempt at humor and the second offers the opportunity for Easter stamping.

The first card features two chocolate bunnies in conversation.  Sadly the bunny on the right cannot hear as well as he used to.... Someone bit off his ear!!   This silly card sports several techniques:  the front is framed in a welded border frame, the bunnies are elevated using pop dots, and the voice balloons use the mini gel pen adaptor in the Cricut to write the words, then finally the balloons were cut after replacing the Cricut's housing blade.

The inside of the card has a large balloon with the Happy Easter phrase and a background of printed paper also cut with the Cricut.

The second card had a scalloped background, two chocolate bunnies and is trimmed with a ribbon and bow.  The inside of the card is blank so that you can customize the card according to your preference.  I used this cute Easter stamp set and pink Stampin' Up ink.

You will find the cut file and complete instructions for these cards at Custom Crops.  Follow the blinkie on the upper left side of my blog to go directly to my page at Custom Crops.

If you have not already done so, please leave a comment under the previous post, BBTB2, so that you can be including in the drawing for a $20.00 certificate from SCRAP YOUR TRIP!!

It has been held in South Africa (twice), Malaysia, Singapore, The Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, England, Thailand and Macau.

While Sri Lanka will host the event in 2010, the 2011 event is expected to be held in Toronto.

“Akshay deserves a national award”

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 14.12

His mom-in-law Dimple Kapadia thinks he should get it for being an all-rounder!

Veteran actress Dimple Kapadia is certain that her son-in-law, actor Akshay Kumar, who has already been conferred a Padma Shri award, deserves a national award too because she believes that he is a great entertainer.

"I think he (Akshay Kumar) deserves a national award. Nor for any movie as such but he has really grown as an actor and he is excellent in comedy beside that he is an allrounder, and most importantly he is a great entertainer," she told reporters at a cafe where she was promoting her upcoming film ‘Tum Milo Toh Sahi’.

Dimple maintains that getting awards is a matter of luck.

"Honestly speaking, awards are just luck. Some give brilliant performances but they never get awarded and someone else gets it. I don't think an award is really important. Someone can perform far more brilliantly than you but you get the award, so it's not a big deal," she said.

Dimple is sharing screen space with Akshay in director Nikhil Advani's ‘Patiala House’ where he is again playing the role of a Sardar after Anees Bazmee's ‘Singh is Kinng’ (2008).

Sixteen long years after ‘Krantiveer’ in 1994, Dimple is paired opposite actor Nana Patekar in Kabir Sadanand's ‘Tum Milo Toh Sahi’ where they play lovers in their 50s.

"It was a fantastic experience again working with Nana Patekar. We share a student-teacher relationship where I am a student. I learnt a lot from him. With every film he has given me something," said Dimple.

"The climax of the film is completely dedicated to him and Kabir. The way they made me see it and the way they made me do it... it's completely their baby. I just went and did what they wanted me to do. It's great to get such a co-star and that's what Nana is. He gives you a lot," she added

Releasing Friday, ‘Tum Milo Toh Sahi’ weaves together lives of three couples who connect with one another through a series of touching and funny moments. Dimple essays a Parsi woman running an old Irani cafe in the film.

And he says it’s good to feel nervous during a shot

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi has done quite a few films so far, but he says he still gets professional advice from his father, yesteryear actor Suresh Oberoi.

"My father often advises me and says that the day you stop feeling nervous during a shot, stop acting because that means you don't care about the consequences," Vivek told IANS.

At the moment, the 33-year-old is geared for the release of his upcoming action film ‘Prince - It's Showtime’ slated to hit screens April 9.

Sania Mirza, who is marrying Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, shared this and much more

Surrounded by reporters in her home city Hyderabad, Indian tennis star Sania Mirza was a picture of composure as she talked about her forthcoming marriage to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. The news of their match broke late yesterday, and today (March 30) the Indian tennis star held a short press conference to share what she felt about the news that has created a buzz in both India and Pakistan.

"I'm very happy, it's a very happy occasion. The reception will be held on April 15 in Hyderabad, the exact venue hasn't been fixed yet," she said. The valima will be held in Pakistan, she added. Sania and her family will be getting Pakistani visas for this.

Sania, who's 23 years old, revealed that she first met Shoaib about 6-7 years ago, but refused to share when they became romantically involved. "It's too personal," she said, adding that neither she nor Shoaib would be comfortable answering such questions.

She clarified that she will continue to play tennis for India, while Shoaib will play cricket for Pakistan. As to the ongoing political issues between the neighbouring countries, Sania said, "Of course, we're aware of the issues. But we're not making a political statement. We're getting married. We're happy, our families are happy. I've got so many good wishes from people."

Sania also confirmed that the couple would be settling down in Dubai after they're married. "He (Shoaib) is a resident there. Dubai is a great place to live in. I've always said it's like a second home. There are so many Indians and Pakistanis there. I will miss my family but it's just a three hour flight away."

Now that she was marrying a Pakistani cricketer, Sania was asked if she would be supporting India or Pakistan in a cricket match between the two countries. "I will support India. I'll also be supporting my husband but I will support India," she said.

Sania was even asked about having kids, to which she replied with a laugh, "I haven't even gotten married yet, and you're already thinking about my kids! I'm going to be participating in the Olympics in 2012, so there are no plans before that."

Arjun Rampal has the ‘jitters’

Film release dates nearing remind him of exam result day

Bollywood heartthrob Arjun Rampal has three films lined up for release this year and the National award winning actor says he is having "jitters" as the release dates are getting closer.
"Beginning to get the jitters as films are getting closer to release... always happens," the 37-year-old posted on his Twitter account.

"'Housefull' will be the first one on April 30, followed by 'Raajneeti' on June 4. I know there is time but still get these pangs of anxiety... it reminds me of days when exam result day would near," Arjun posted on his Twitter account.

His third release is Karan Johar's yet-to-be titled film, which is an adaptation of Chris Columbus' 1998 comedy drama ‘Stepmom’.

"'Stepmom' will be released some time in August or September... looking forward to all three, all very different from each other, (I) had a great time making them," he said.

While ‘Housefull’ is a comedy directed by Sajid Khan and also stars Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, and Ritesh Deshmukh, ‘Raajneeti’ is a political thriller written, directed, and produced by Prakash Jha. It also stars Ajay Devgn, Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor.

In the ‘Stepmom’ remake, Arjun has teamed up with Kajol and Kareena Kapoor.

Sania Mirza to marry Shoaib Malik

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 14.05

The Indian tennis star and the Pakistani cricketer will be based in Dubai after they wed

It’s a match across borders and sports, as one of India’s top tennis players Sania Mirza will be getting married to Shoaib Mailk, the former cricket captain of Pakistan. The news has been confirmed by Sania’s father, Imran Mirza. He has also said that after the marriage, the couple will be based in Dubai.

It seems that there will be no engagement ceremony for the two, and that they will get married in April. It is believed that the wedding will happen in India while the reception will be held in Pakistan.

Just a few months ago, Sania broke off her engagement to her family friend Sohrab Mirza. It is believed that Sania and Shoaib have been seeing each other since. Apparently, the match was made formal when Shoaib’s mother met Sania’s parents in India.

Sania reportedly said yesterday that it was the biggest day of her life.

In the past, Shoaib was linked to an Indian woman called Ayesha Siddiqui and there were even rumours that he had married her. But now it seems like he has found his perfect match in Sania Mirza. Shoaib has said that he will support Sania in her career for as long as she wants to play.

Abhishek wants to check into a mental institution

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 14.01

What’s got AB Jr saying that he ‘needs help’?

Looks like Abhishek Bachchan is finally realising the effort that goes into shooting for a tough taskmaster like Mani Ratnam. The actor has been shooting for the southern director’s ‘Ravana’, co-starring wife Aishwarya Rai, and it’s been a really difficult time for him. So difficult in fact that he jokes that he needs to check into a mental institution now.

Abhishek posted on his Twitter account today, “Finally completed the dub for RAAVAN. Relieved. The toughest film of my career. Now on my way to check into a mental institution! Need help!”

The shooting for ‘Ravana’ took place in very challenging locations and involved a lot of tough situations. Think mountains, jungles and rains! And the movie was shot in two versions – Hindi and Tamil. So it meant doing all the scenes twice. Aishwarya even fell ill with a fever during the shoot. And while shooting in the jungles of Kerala, the entire cast and crew had a scary experience when an elephant ran amok and killed a 51-year-old mahout. The actors, including Abhishek and Ash, had to take shelter in a guest house and survived on bread and eggs.

We’re curious about how the film has shaped up, but we certainly don’t want Abhishek to end up in a mental institution because of it.

Munnabhai Chale Amreeka

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 13.39

Just when all Munnabhai fans had given up any hope of seeing the much promised third installment in the series, news comes in that Munnabhai Chale Amreeka is very much in the pipeline. The filming will begin at the end of the year.

Munnabhai Chale Amreeka is very much on the cards. Raju has been working on the script, and we should begin filming soon” confirms Munnabhai, Sanjay Dutt, himself.

Arshad Warsi, who is currently enjoying the success of his first production Hum Tum Aur Ghost, is equally optimistic of doing the film. “Raju has been working on the story and screenplay for some time now. We all know how Raju works, and he needs the story to be just right. We didn’t want to make the sequel just to cash in on the Munnabhai success. We want to make a good and equally enjoyable film,” explains Arshad.

But what has delayed the film for so many years?
“The film, as the name suggests, is set in the US. Now, many films have been made with the whole New York and 9/11 incident in the background. A lot of them were being filmed or released during the time Raju was writing the script. Plus 3 Idiots also happened for Raju. So, for a good year and a half, he was completely immersed in that project. He has now gone back to the writing board and is re-working the script… putting final touches to it,” says Warsi.

According to both Dutt and Warsi, the film should go on floors either in December of this year or at the very start of next year.

Priyanka's emotional moment

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 13.36

Priyanka Chopra says she was moved to tears as she collected her National Award for Best Actress.

The actress, who is currently shooting for Saath Khoon Maaf, says that the day was memorable for her. "When I went up to the President to receive my National Award, I was choked with emotion. I cried when I walked off the stage,” says Priyanka.

She believes she got the award and the role only because of director Madhur Bhandarkar, who cast her in Fashion. “I went there only because of Madhur. He is the only one responsible for it, for showing his faith in me when offering me the role," said Priyanka, adding, "The way that he directed the movie is outstanding." She has high hopes also for her current film, which is being directed by Vishal Bharadwaj. Asked if she thought it would also pick up some awards, she said: "I hope so. Kaminey was a fantastic film, but Saath Khoon Maaf is also unbelievable. Vishal has his own imagination."

She said she wasn't just looking at awards for herself. "I will be glad if Vishal himself wins an award for his dedication to his work," says Priyanka, "In this movie, you will see some fantastic actors as well, which I'm looking also forward to." Priyanka is making her debut on television, hosting Fear Factor III, with cricketers. “Television did not happen suddenly to me. I was getting offers, but nothing excited me. I am a sporty person, and so, when I got the offer for Fear Factor, they didn’t have to patao me. I agreed easily,” says Priyanka.

Sridevi to endorse Vanish washing powder

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 13.32

For all those who thought that if Anil Kapoor vanished in reel life in Mr. India, Sridevi did the same vanishing trick in real life, here's a piece of news that will really sound music to your ears!

After having ruled and reigned over everyone's hearts alike with her performances in the silver screen as well as giving a zillion FMCG products an image makeover ( read 'endorsing') the Queen Bee is back yet again...not to vanish this time round, but to endorse Vanish washing powder. Sources close to Bollywood Hungama confirmed the news saying, "It took slightly larger-than-usual time for the ad director to convince Sridevi to sign on the dotted line. But, once she was convinced then there was not looking back! She went all out to shoot for the ad and extended her full co-operation, something that she has always been known for".

Repeated attempts to contact Sridevi proved futile.

Papertake Weekly - Easter challenge

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 04.00

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and this week, it's an Easter Theme that is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. I've been waiting for a week to post this card. This is one of those that I absolutely love and couldn't wait to show you!! LOL! I used three of the new stamps from the Hoppy Easter/Spring collection available at Magnolia-licious. I used #3032 Little Bunny Tilda (one of my new favorites), #449 Big Hoppy, and #650 Spring Fence. I stamped Little Bunny Tilda an extra time cause I wanted a matching ribbon for around Big Hoppy's neck. This reminds me of the Lucille Ball and Harpo Marx episode of I Love Lucy. LOL!

Both Little Bunny Tilda and Big Hoppy are cut out and popped up on dimensional tape. All the stamps are colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe' from a set called Happy Easter Inside and Out Greetings Printable Stamps. This set is packed full of Easter Greetings for all your needs! The papers are all digital from Nitwits in a set called The Carrot Patch. I added a silk bow made with my Bow Easy, and hung a cute bunny charm from it.

That's it for me today! Please be sure and hop over to Papertake Weekly to see the fabulous creations from the design team. You're in for a real treat! Then get busy and make your own Easter project to join in on the challenge. You might get lucky and win a fabulous prize from Simon Says Stamp!

Salman-Govinda back together

Diposting oleh alexandria joseph | 15.19

Despite being a blatant lift of the Hollywood film Hitch, David Dhawan’s Partner was a huge hit at the Bollywood box office. And therefore it came as no surprise therefore when Dhawan announced a sequel to the film soon thereafter.

However, with no movement for over two years, most fans had given up hope of seeing Salman and Govinda back together.

But now we hear the sequel is back and very much on track.

“Sohail (Khan) will be producing the film and it is very much on track. There is talk about David’s son directing the film. Govinda and Salman have given their dates for next year. Lara (Dutta) is back in the sequel too. But David and Sohail are finding it difficult to get Katrina to return too,” says our source.

The film, for the moment titled Partner 2, is expected to go on the floors in December this year and will be shot in one straight schedule. But right now the hunt is on for some additions to the cast.

“A couple more additions will be made to the star cast. We are looking for another male and female lead,” says the source adding that Salman won’t be the love guru in the sequel, “Unlike in partner, this time Salman won’t be playing the love guru. He won’t be solving other people’s problems. In fact the film will have a huge surprise element where Salman’s role is concerned.”

Partner 2 will be shot in Mumbai, Dubai and England.

Priyanka Chopra has been taking up very challenging roles of late. She played the 12-faceted lead in What's Your Rashee? She's shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's latest, Saat Khoon Maaf, in which she plays a black widow.

And now is the buzz is right, she's going to play a mentally challenged person.

The role, which is a special appearance or something like it, is said to be for the movie Khamoshi which stars Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. The film's being directed by Anurag Basu, who's also writing it, and the word is that Priyanka was approached for it and showed interest.

Sources close to Priyanka said: “When Priyanka read the script she loved it. It is something she has hasn't ever done and she's intrigued by the challenges of playing such a role." Sources in Khamoshi's production unit were cautious. “Priyanka has already given her dates to other directors for this year as she is shooting for Saath Khoon Maaf and then she will start shooting for Don-2, so nothing has been finalized yet but she loved the script,” said the source.

We spoke to Anurag Basu who refused to confirm the development. “No comment. I have not even completed the script so how can I comment on my project?" he said. Anurag liked the chemistry between Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor in Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani and he signed the stars right away. Ranbir plays a deaf mute character in the movie.
