Shopping Our Stash Challenge #189 - Inspired By A Movie

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
Well, with all the Oscar Buzz, it is only fitting that the challenge at
Shopping Our Stash  is to 
Create A Project Inspired by A Movie.  
Please remember to mention the Movie in your post!
I chose "The Great Gatsby" which is not only one of my favorite movies, but also is among one of my favorite novels. Working on this project reminded me of my freshman year and the nights my study group spent sitting on the terrace of the University Center discussing Daisy, Gatsby, the accident, and the eyes of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg

I was planning to make a note holder for a family friend who is a "Fashionista" so I thought this would suit her perfectly.  And the quote from the novel is equally "her."
Graphic 45's Couture Collection captures The Gatsby Elegance so well.
"The Great Gatsby" was set in 1922,  when women were really just really embracing a new freedom, particularly in how they dressed and how they styled their hair.  
Oh, yeah, and how they danced!  Everybody was a "Flapper"

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope to see you projects in the challenge!
