Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #97 -Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Welcome Everyone to the 97th Cinema Saturday Challenge, where this week we are featuring the 1997 movie: Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood which has an all star cast and follows the life stories of the young group of best friends who stay close and protect and take care of each other through their lives. This story is about sisterhood, motherhood, and how we uphold and love each other through thick and thin. For our challenge requirement today, we thought it would be fun to create something that has a "collage" feeling (this can be to create a card with different elements layered together, or a scrapbook page, or a 3D element). Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Sankari's Creation Inspired by the movie: The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
This movie is so lovely - it is such an amazing movie - filled with comedy, drama, romance and examines the bonds of friendship, sisterhood and motherhood/and being a daughter. In thinking of the bond of sisterhood that was in this movie, I wanted to make a scrapbook page of my daughter and her best friend - these two are like peas in a pod and since the day they met they have been together like super glue. They always hold hands and giggle and even if they ever "fight" they immediately make up with hugs and kisses - its really the sweetest thing. My daughter talks about her BFF all day long - even while she is at home brushing her teeth, she says goodnight to her BBF :) She is only 3 and it always melts my heart how much love she has for her friend at this tender age.

I loved watching this movie about the depths of sisterhood and the sweet bond of friendship. I hope that my daughter and her BFF remain like this always, and even when they are older - that they still remain close! Can't wait to see what you create!

Brooke's Project inspired by ~ The Divine Secrets of the Ya, Ya sisterhood

I knew from the start that I was going to get my inspiration from the ya,ya's scrapbook. I love all the whimsical personality. The Sentiment GIRL POWER is so reflective of the movie.. All the ya, ya's are there for each other through think and thin.. The movie really comes full circle when Sidalee is asked to join the Ya, Ya's.. Only at this point does she really understand and start to love her mother and begin to live her life free from pain and anger towards her mother. This is SUCH a wonderful movie... It only shows that you really have to walk a 100 miles in someone's shoes to really understand who they are.
Enjoy the challenge...
