Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #77 - America's Sweethearts

Welcome to our 77th Cinema Saturday, where this week we are featuring the 2001 all star cast movie America's Sweethearts. John Cusack and Catherine Zeta Jones play broken up Hollywood sweethearts who are brought back together by their publicist and sister. Through their rancid break up, we see how love should be and the sweetness that it can have. So this week's challenge requirement is to create a love card - any kind of love card inspired by the movie! You could create a love card about sisterhood, friendship, etc. (If you have Netflix, this movie is on the watch instantly group). Here is the trailer for the movie:

Brooke's Card Inspired by the movie America's Sweethearts:
I have to say this was not one of my favorite movie of all time.. I though it was a really depressing movie actually.. One of the main things I drew from this movie was a "recipe" of what a good relationship really take to be successful. I felt like this movie was a "recipe" of how not to act. Wether it's you friend, sister or spouse.. You must always treat everyone the way you would like to be treated if not better. I have really been blessed to have found someone who treats me like the most important person in the world. And who has taught me to be a better person.
"My American Sweetheart"
I was on Beate's blog a while back and saw her tutorial on a easle card so I decided to give it a try.. I you would like to give it a go you can check out the tutorial here for the details.
Big hugs,
Brooke

Sankari's Card Inspired by the movie America's Sweethearts:
I have always enjoyed John Cusack ever since high school (wow! that just brought back images of pajamas parties and sleepovers :) This movie also has Hank Azaria, who it depends I created this card inspired by Julia Roberts character Kiki who is always so sweet (perhaps too much so) and her love for "Eddie" emerges from a sweet friendship: so I created a love card with the sentiment: "love is sweet"


Big hugs,
Sankari

For this week's challenge all you have to do is to create a card, layout, altered project, etc. that is inspired by the movie: AMERICA'S SWEETHEARTS and you could be our guest designer next week!

Wow! I never would have guessed that! I saw this quite some time ago (probably when it first came out on dvd). But, I so adore John Cusack, and will watch on Netflix Instant play, so I can play along this week.
Thanks ladies!

I've seen this movie a half dozen times or so ... five times more than necessary as it turns out. It was cute and fun the first time through, though.

Re: your ? ... I personally like this Linky-thingy better than the rude Mr. Linky who disappears and reappears at will. Just like a 'Mister,' huh? Plus it's fun to see all the pretty pictures ... In general, I blog-hop more to take a closer look at challenge entries after seeing these l'il 'teaser' photos. Overall, they pique my curiosity much more than a linked-up name. In case you can't tell, lolol, I vote for this particular link-thing.

Thanks for a fun challenge!
