Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #27 - "Chocolat"

Welcome to the 27th Cinema Saturday Challenge!! YAY! First of all - many of you were right on in your guesses from this week's sneak peeks that the movie that we are featuring this week is the 2000 release known as Chocolat! This movie is based on the novel Chocolat by Joanne Harris and tells the story of a mother and daughter who wander into a small French town, opening up a chocolaterie store where the sweet confections have the powers to heal, inspire and strengthen. They encounter some skepticism and resistance from the morality holders in the community, but heal and inspire the community through the love that is within the sweet confections and through their healing touch. This movie was up for 5 Academy Awards including best actress Juliet Binoche.

This week's requirement is to use some sweet image in your card... anything that you would like from chocolates to cupcakes - just have fun with some sweet images for your card!

We would like to wish all of you a Happy Spring and Happy Easter! Have fun creating a card for this movie - and if you haven't seen it - we can't wait to hear what you think of this movie and we can't wait to see your creations!

Sankari's Card Inspired by Chocolat

Well there are two reasons why I love this movie: Johnny Depp and chocolates! lol! I think it was last week that I was thinking that it would be just awesome to have a Johnny Depp chocolate figure - now that would be combining two loves into one yummy result!!! I really love this movie also for the love that it inspires. In every story there is a love story... and Vianne (Juliette Binoche's Character) inspires that love story to be fulfilled. Wheather its the love for the grandmother to be able to see her grandson, or the passion to be rekindled in a marriage, or for two eldery people to find their way to each other's hearts or about self love - where a person has the courage to stand up for themselves. In every story in this movie, there is a beautiful love story that is waiting to blossom and be fulfilled.

The sentiment on the card reads: love is sweet. Because all through the movie, the different love stories show the sweetness of love. I think my favorite have to be the chocolate beans that she buys for her husband!

For more details you can check out my blog!
Hugs to all!
Sankari :)

Our Audrey recipient from our 25th Cinema Saturday challenge for the movie GoldFinger and the winner of the stamp set is: Clouds.
