Each Pixie has a clue on her blog to help you guess the name of the movie. Here is mine:
This film is a sequel to a 2009 film based on a character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
"The End?"

 Hoppers must comment on ALL Pixies’ blogs to be eligible for prizes. Hoppers must post their guess as to which movie Pixie has picked for the Hop on the CHALLENGE BLOG only....not on Pixie’s blogs. Hoppers leave comments on Pixies’ blogs telling us what they like about our projects.

One lucky Hopper who correctly guesses the name of the movie and posts it along with their comment on the Challenge Blog AND has posted a comment on all participating Pixies’ blogs, will receive their own Copy of the movie on DVD!!!!  (Winner will be randomly chosen from all correct entries)
One of the Pixie Blogs is a "Mystery Blog". One Hopper’s comment will be randomly chosen from the "Mystery Blog", and that Hopper will receive the digi stamp that Pixie Kathy designed just for this special hop!
Here is my project for the Hop. I had so much FUN making it!

I found a Memory Box on sale at Hobby Lobby and decided to give it a try. I had trouble getting a clear photo because of the glare on the glass, so I took it out of the frame for the rest of this "shoot".
These two guys are the main characters in Pixie's Mystery flix. This is the amazing digi that you could have a chance to win! I made the little scroll myself and popped it up with a Pop Dot. (One of my fave embellies!)

A woman is thrown from a moving train in the movie, so I included a train in my collage. This image is Pixie Steam Train. It's from the Pixie Steampunk Collection.

In the ovals are two more characters from the movie: the wife of one of the main characters and the Evil Genius. They are Miss Studio Priss and Sir Studio Punk. They are also members of the Pixie Steampunk Collection.
I also found these adorable metal embellies at Hobby Lobby. They are "Spare Parts" from  The Paper Studio.

Here is the entire collage "out of the box". I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and it is now on display in my livingroom.

 Please leave a comment on my blog telling me what you liked about the Hop. Then head on over to the Challenge Blog HERE and tell Pixie what you think the name of this movie is. Remember that you must leave comments on every Pixie's blog to be eligible for prizes. 
But Wait!
There is another way to be in a random drawing to receive this special image featuring the two main characters in the movie! Just head on over to the Pixie Dust Fan Page on FB and leave a comment on the Pixie Flix Post. One lucky commenter will win this digi too!

Our challenge this week is based on our Mystery movie. Your project must share some fun theme that relates to THIS movie. Use any digis you like to create a project of your choice. If you need Pixie Dust images, you can find them in the Pixie Dust Studio. There are so many cute ones!!! I hope you were inspired by the amazing projects of our very talented DT! Enter your project HERE for a chance to win a Pixie Dust image of your choice and a Pixie Star Award for your blog. Thanks for joining our Pixie Flix Hop! Happy Crafting!
