Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - #24 - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This week on Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge we are presenting
 "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"
Based on the book by Roald Dahl. 
our spring board challenge this week is to incorporate bright colors!
Come create a card and post it on our blog to share with all.

1st card~

A little love note for my sweetie.

2nd card~
I just got this set from my last Stampin' Up order and had to use the Gumdrops of course!  

this last weekend I went to Scrapbook USA, I wanted to keep my eyes open and find something that I could use on my challenge card this week. The top card I made for my "Sweetie" I used only products I purchased from the show including the white note card. When I saw the rub-on's the swirls and sentiment made me think of all the amazing colors and wild aspects of this movie. The steal of a deal was the velvet ribbon. I got a roll(15 yards) for only $1.00. Dang I just remembered I just a Stampin' Up Chipboard letter it's not a bad thing of course but I was going to use only expo products...(he,he)

About this movie:
I remember as a kid watching this movie at Christmas time. It was a big deal when you had to wait patiently for the show to be broadcasted and couldn't just download or rent a movie. I remember being excite and scared at the same time.. I was a bit of a frady cat you could say. I had a thing for face painting back them It totally FREAKED me out. I even left parties if there were clowns present. This original movie was the first DVD I actually purchased. I am glad I don't have to decide which version is my favorite because I love aspects of both. Jonny Deep is defiantly cuter than Gene Wilder but Gene is so great at playing bizarre.. Did you know   Peter Ostrum who played Charlie never acted again. Peter was offered 2 movies after but turned them both down. Peter is now a Vet in Up-State New York and said he made the right choice not acting again.  The kids in the re-make. Freddie Highmore and AnnaSophia Robb are both HUGE child actors with successful acting careers before and after this movie.  

Come play along with us this week and create you own magical sweet creation.
