LMCB- it's in the movies

Good afternoon everyone
Lasting memories has a new challenge this week - lights... camera...action!!!  

So you more than likely don't know this but i grew up as a trekkie - When I was younger I would sit with my dad every week and watch star trek with him.   I still go to all the movies when they come out (usually with my dad) and continue to watch re-runs on TV.   I think I fell in love with Leonard Nimoy... I loved Spock!   

So when I made a trip out to visit my best friend in Alberta I had to stop by the town of Vulcan... seriously the cutest little down ever.    Rumor has it that during a baseball game the town was teased by a neighboring town about their ears and called them all Spock and that they were from Vulcan!!
So what did they do... Changed their name!!! LOL  if you don't believe me look it up - any way here is my inspiration for the week 
the top pic on the left is of his real ears... I was so excited that i didn't notice the glare  :(

 ok.. back to the LO... I used my cricut for all the little embellishments
Graphically Speaking
Wall decor 
and Creative memories - this and that for the cute space ship  
the paper is Scenic Route - Liberty collection - sorry the store is no longer available :(
 I misted and masked the stars with CTMH ink Twlight
 oh.. and foil Thickers

 YES that is a bronze mold of Leonard Nimoy's hand

Any hoo... I hope you find some inspiration to create with us at Lasting memories.
I also found inspiration from the following challenges:

(bet you didn't think a LO would show up on the challenge!)
Scrap fit -misting with stickers and negatives (the background stars)
the corrosive challenge -myth and magic 
(i must say back then it was futuristic but now... maybe more like reality??)
cardz tv - colours
(it isn't a card.. but does fit the challenge please let me know if you won't accept it - i understand)
crafts 4 eternity - vintage toy colours
Sending hearts...
