Have you seen Disney’s new live-action Cinderella yet? I LOVED it!!!! And, our boys like it as well!! There’s the FROZEN Fever Short before the movie that was adorable and then the movie was just wonderful! Honestly, I was a bit nervous about a live-action remake of the animated classic. But, it was SO well done. Great casting, gorgeous costumes & scenery…just all around fantastic! And, I REALLY loved the recurring message in the movie about kindness and courage. “Have courage and be kind”, the words spoken to young Cinderella by her mother are words that she carries with her always. We talk a lot about kindness here at our house and it’s something I want to instill in my boys. So, even though girls might resonate with Cinderella’s character more, the message of the movie is perfect for everyone! In fact, I loved that message so much that as soon as I came home after seeing the movie, I decided to make a printable quote that we can have out all the time as a good reminder.
As I was playing around & designing, I ended up creating two completely different styles. One is more formal – and is the one the shown above in our living room. We have a new red cabinet and quite a few black & white decor pieces. So, I went with a red & black look for that. It doesn’t show in the first image above, but I printed it on glittery paper (which is fun close-up) and is the reason the red looks a little muted.
Then, I also created a more colorful, whimsical version. This one is blue with butterflies, inspired by Cinderella’s gorgeous ball gown. Click here to download the blue Have Courage Cinderella Printable
I love these! And, I also love the ending quote of the movie so so much (in fact, so much that I may do a printable just of it)… “where there is kindness, there is goodness and where there is goodness, there is magic”. So beautiful!!!
