Welcome Everyone to our 73rd movie where this week we are featuring the Oscar nominated movie from 2009: Julie and Julia, starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. This story unfolds Julia Child's story of her passion for cooking through her recipes from her first book: The Joy of Cooking! The challenge requirement for this movie challenge is a really simple one: Anything having to do with cooking that is inspired by the movie!
Brooke's Card inspired by the movie: Julie and Julia
We are HUGE foodies at our house so I was excited to finally see this movie.. Julia Child is one of the first chefs I can remember watching on t.v.
What a project Julie Powell took on with her cooking blog... After a weekly Cob Salad lunch date with friends, Julie Powell was tired of feeling like a second class citizen. Julie wanted to find something she was really good and share her story.. She created a blog to document her journey cooking ALL the recipes in Julia Child's cook book. I think she bit off a little more that she could chew to say the least.. This adventure even jeopardized her marriage. She said that Julia gave her life purpose. Amy Adams did a sweet job portraying Julie Powell. It was so delightful to get a glimpse of Julia Child's live. She was so adorable.. I was disappointed in the end of the movie though I felt like the story didn't have a lot of closure. Defiantly worth the watch though.. I watched the movie on Netflicks instant download.
Enjoy the show
Sankari's Card Inspired by the movie: Julie and Julia
I remember watching Julia Child's cooking show as a kid with my mom and it was amazing to watch Meryl Streep transform into Julia Child - she is seriously my favorite actress - just amazing! I loved the way the spliced the two Julia's lives together and although I do wish it had a bit more closure as well, it left me feeling inspired that I can cook! So I created this little recipe card holder in a nugget box of all my favorite dessert recipes. I was inspired by how they complied all the recipes and tried it out - so here are all of my tried and true recipes that are a quick make when you are in a pinch for time:
I am always running out of ideas for quick snacks and desserts that are healthy for the kids and that I can easily make for their snack day at school: so I printed out a few of my favorite quick recipes and altered this little nugget box with some rubons to not only house the recipe cards but to also be the holder while I am baking :) I love how quick and easy it was to make!
So inspired by the movie - I am making a big dinner tomorrow night - and you are all invited!! Will let you know the menu soon!
Can't wait to see the creations you have cooked up!

Welcome to our 71st challenge, where today we are featuring the fun film: 13 Going on 30 starring Jennifer Garner. This is a story of a 13 year old who is desparetly trying to fit in and wishes that she were older and on her birthday she gets her wish to be 30. And she finds that perhaps sometimes, what you wish for, might not be what you really want. This is a fun movie with lots of odes to 80's music from the likes of Pat Benatar, Vanilla Ice, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and more!). The challenge requirement this week is to create something that has some geometric shapes (like stars, circles, squares, trangles (you could have a lot of fun with your punches :) the 80's were full of fun loud geometric prints - so have fun! Please check out this awesome link for a ton of inspiration pictures from this movie! Here is the trailer that you can watch to get your mojo going:
Brooke's Card inspired by the movie: 13 Going on 30
The movie 13 going on 30 is really a sweet reminder that the grass is not always greener on the
other side. If I had a chance to go in to the future I would not take it.. I want to love everyone for who they are and not have any information good or bad to
chance the way I would treat them. I know that might sound corny but I have though about that
If I could go back in time and re-live a moment that would be another story.. Not that I would
change anything. Just enjoy the moment again. Matty played my Mark Rullalo is one of my
favorite things about this movie. It just proves sometimes we can't even see what's at the end
of our noses. He is so thoughtful and sweet. You can't help but love him.
If you want to read all the details about my card and the inspiration please join me on my blog
and read my NOVEL (sorry) about it..
Please say Hi :)
Sankari's Card inspired by the movie: 13 Going on 30
I remember watching this movie in the theater when it came out and I loved watching it because I grew up in the 80's - so all of the references, music, and little "jokes" were something that i totally got. One of my favorite parts of this movie was when she asked her mother if there was something that she wished she could do over again - like if she had made some mistake and wished she could re-do it. Her mother gave her such a beautiful answer I thought - which was that those moemnts give us an opportunity to figure out how to make things right. This movie I felt was about sometimes what we think we wish for might not always be what we really want and its about a chance to be true to ourselves.
My card is inspired by her friendship with her best friend Matt - whom she realizes, she has always loved but never given him a chance. Their childhood friendship is so sweet and he truly sees her for who she is - a wonderful, happy, caring and beautiful person. Sometimes, we can take for granted our friendships and our family because you know they will always be there for you - but it is so nice to make sure they know how much you appreciate them! This card is for one of my best friends and even though we have grown a bit far apart over space and time - she will always be one of my BFFs :)

Thanks so all our player this week. We hope you all enjoyed the movie "Dear Frankie" and the challenge. We had such a great time making our cards for the movie. We were even surprised how close our cards look like each other.. It was as if someone had sent us the same supplies and this is what we both came up with. We loved seeing all of your mapped out creations of gorgeousness! So beautiful how each of you incorporated that into your cards so differently! Check out this week's inspired creations! Thank you to all who played along!
Seahorse creation this week! The seahorse motif is such a sweet symbol in this movie and what a clever idea to incorporate that with the map! Amy also showed how she did it in Illustrator! Thanks so much Amy for playing along and for creating such a clever and gorgeous card! And a huge thank you to all of you who played along - a big welcome to all our new players and to all of our returning players! It is so nice to see you all and visit with you in blogland!!
We hope you enjoy this week show.. But for now here is our first sneak Peek!

Welcome to our Cinema challenge where this week we are featuring the movie: Dear Frankie! As much as we love the big blockbusters, we also love featuring movies that might not be that famous but are just amazing! If you haven't seen this movie - you MUST! It is just a gem of a movie! Seriously - this is one of the most heartwarming movies that we have both seen - you will fall in love with it! We don't want to give away too much, but the reason the challenge requirement is to use a little bit of a map is because Frankie (the little boy) keeps track of his father's voyages on a map. We can't express enough - how beautiful of a movie this is --- it is full of love stories (the love between a mother for her daughter, the fierce love of a mother for her child, the love that grows between two strangers and the love of a "father" for his son) - its just beautiful! We know you will love it! Here is a trailer of the movie for you to enjoy:
Hope you will play along with us!
Brooke's Card inspired by the movie~ Dear Frankie
I love foreign films. I really don't have a problem with accents distracting me either.. When we came across this amazing love story a few years ago... We totally fell in love with it... Mind you Gerard Butler was not the big star he now is in the U.S.. This move touches you in so many ways. The Love that a mother has for a child, whether it's a grown up child (mother & daughter) or a small child (mother & son). Learning to open your heart and make room for others can be so healing. Children can work miracles and Frankie is so trusting and loving...
My inspiration starters for this movie are 4 very important parts in the movie.. First the map and all the places Frankie marks showing where his da's ship is traveled to using little red flags. Second the Stamps collection Frankie and his da(mother) are sharing with each other.. Third the letters that Frankie and his da(mother) are writing to each other. Last the hearts are showing the love that is to be when you open your live to new love.
This movie is a MUST see. You will not be disappointed only lifted up by watching "Dear Frankie"
Stop by and say hi!
Sankari's Card inspired by the movie~ Dear Frankie
The first thing that I want to say is that if you haven't seen this movie - you MUST see it! I can't express enough - how beautiful of a movie it is - so sweet. I remembered loving it the first time I saw it but honestly, after having children - it pulls at my heart strings even more - and I totally relate to how fiercely Lizzie protects her son Frankie and only wants the best for him. Seriously, even more in love with it :) For my card, I was inspired by the map that Frankie keeps of his father's voyages and how he tracks his adventures. When he finally meets his "father", he has such an instant connection to him - he doesn't want him to go... and from there I created the sentiment: I'd Follow You Anywhere":
I printed off a map of the Scottish seas/lochs and used that as my background and also punched out hearts with it and added a trail of buttons on the hearts. As Brooke said: This movie is a MUST see - its such a gem of movie - you will love it!

Happy Friday Cinema Fans :)
Hope your work week is coming to a close soon and you are heading for a weekend of relaxation! We have a sweet movie picked out for tomorrow's movie challenge, but first we wanted to take a minute to give a shout out to all you who played along - thank you so much for creating such lovely collage creations - we just loved reading where you got your inspiration from - and loved the different techniques that you used to create your collage creations - from the One Sheet Wonder technique, to creating a collage with different quotes, or creating a collage from different embellies and stamps - they were all so wonderful!
Since our participation was a little low this week, we didn't want to have a cinema roundup (it just didn't seem very fair).
Our Adrey this week goes to Shaz for this lovely scrapbook page that she created for her father - using the collage requirement with the sweet pictures of her father - she really captured what a wonderful father he is and the sweet themes of family, fatherhood and love from the movie! Thanks so much Shaz, we hope that you will be our guest designer next week and a huge thanks to everyone who played along! Tomorrow's movie is just so heartwarming (oops, have I said too much? :) and here is a little sneak peek to get you started:

Good Morning Everyone and Welcome to our 69th Challenge movie challenge which is Dan in Real Life! This movie is a heartwarming, very true to life story a kind of "drama-dy (that word was invented by Tori Wilds, who is sitting next to me at my copic class right now :) of the love of family and love. Simply so sweet - and we hope you like it! The challenge requirement this week is to use some thing collage-ish in your creation - because family sometimes is a collection of different people, journeys, emotion, relationships - we thought this would be a fun challenge requirement!
Sankari's Card inspired by Dan In Real Life:
I am at a Copic Class today and sadly, my last minute-ness didn't let me make a card - but I can't wait to get home and make one - love this movie and can't wait to see your creations!!
Brooke's card inspired by the movie: Dan in Real Life
Welcome to one of my favorite movies girlies... I actually wouldn't watch this movie for quite a long time... Because of Steve Carell.. I just going to say it.. I don't really care for the t.v. program "The Office" It's painful to watch... My Sweetheart ordered this movie on Netflicks and so I consented and YA!! I was in for a great surprise... This movie has a great case Juliette Binoche is so Beautiful. You will really enjoy this movie I promise.. It is so easy to relate to wether you are married or not, have kids/teens or even sibling.. This movie has great Family dynamic in this movie..
If you have ever dropped by my blog the soundtrack will sound very familiar.
My inspiration came from one of the funniest lines in the movie.
DAN~ This Corn is just like an Angel..
I also wanted to share the Love that Dan and all his family has for each other.. And how much they need and support each other... Even in moments of craziness.
Have fun with this movie...
This week we have a wonderful guest designer: Laural-Lee, who joins us with this beautiful creation! Laural-Lee received the Audrey for the Movie Challenge: Tristan and Isolde with this beautiful gatefold card.
Laural-Lee's Card inspired by Dan In Real Life:
