Michelle said...

Love your layout. And your card - I hadn't seen that cuties set yet - perfect name. I haven't seen the movie or read the book, can I tag along :) My mom, bro, and dad went, I'll have to ask them what they thought :)

My Angel said...

I haven't read or seen the Movie yet!!I am hoping to see the Movie in the very near future!!

Eeeek! Eat Pray Love is my favorite book! It totally changed my life and brought me closer to religion because Elizabeth Gilbert gave me permission to take what I want from religions and make it my own. I finally realized there is no wrong way to pray and that was such a turning point in my life. The movie is really cute. I went to see it with a friend who hasn't read the book and she thought the movie was very good. I just think that while it was a great movie that touched on the book, it didn't have the kind of depth that book has. The movie, had I seen it first, would not be something I'd call life changing so I'm glad I read the book first.

dclouser said...

Would you believe I've never heard of this book/movie? Will definitely have to check it out now!

Angela said...

ummmm.....i love you....i miss you....and i think you are AMAZING. Just an FYI. :) I adore the layout with Chloe- you are SUCH a wonderful MAMA. I adore you.

Carley said...

I have not read the book yet it is on my long list! I am currently stuck in the middle of the pretty little liars and can not put them down so good! I hope to read the book soon!

Toni K said...

Haven't seen the movie, but I do want to read the book.
Lovely layout of a lovely girl!

TanySol said...

WOW Brooke!!!!
Fantastic layout!
Awesome works!!! Thanks for the blog hop - now I'm your follower.

Handmade Creations by Stephanie said...

Gorgeous creations as always and i look forward to seeing this movie with my mom!!!!

lynn said...

i've not seen this movie, but i love your page design with those black and white pics mixed with the color pic!

Becky Thomas said...

I just finished the book and my husband was kind enough to see the movie with me the other night. There were 5 guys in the audience so he was not alone...lol I liked the movie--not as much as the book--but Julia Roberts was wonderful. Wondered how it was for someone who hadn't read the book but hubby liked it too. (We went to an Italian restaurant beforehand for dinner to get in the spirit of things!) Enjoy when you go!

Pat said...

The movie was good, but not as good as the book. Books go so much deeper than the movies. The book really made me look at my life in a different light and not be so hard on myself.

StampinCathy said...

Your card and page is just amazing and so inspiring. I just love the stamps you used. Your sister will love this card. I haven't read or seen the movie, but I really want to. I just love the title. Have a fabulous BFF time and thanks for a chance at this sweet giveaway.

Erika M. said...

First I love your creations. I am ashamed to say that I have not read the book but I love the movie trailers and am excited that Julie Roberts is playing the major character in the book.

Bogner's said...

Wow Brooke, this is so cool. I love your LO. So fabulous!

Tam said...

Oh, I'm reading book now! I wanted to read book first before I see movie this weekend. Unfortunately I will have to see movie alone, no girlfriends here:(.

Rona said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE your layout!! your photos are amazing and you did such a beautiful job with the layout - I am sure you will treasure that one forever!! Haven't read the book or seen the movie - but I do eat - pray and love!! LOL Have a great time with your friends.

marilyn said...

Fabulous layout--love it!! Really looking forward to seeing the movie!

Aleks said...

Your card is SUPER cute...I lovethe black/white!

The layout is really sweet and I always love seeing examples of layouts with the stamps!

Eat.Pray.Love - To be honest, I don't really know what all the hype is about..I never get into these things...maybe it's because I don't have cable and never really know what's in the theatres and such...if we go, I just decide on a whim what to see.

However, I am interested in the book... I've heard AMAZING things and DISAPPOINTING things... and I'm curious where I would fall in. :)

I have a big to read list, gathering...that's for sure!! It's hard to find time to do it all, right? :)

FibreJunky said...

I'm curious to read the book. It's not my normal fare, but sometimes you just have to take a step outside your comfort zone, otherwise, you never grow. So I will probably read it during a school break.

I love your layout with Chloe. She just keeps getting more beautiful.

JPScraps said...

Gorgeous projects. Love the sets that you used. As for the movie/book, I don't know anything about it. Haven't read it or seen it.

NoraAnne said...

Cute card and I love your layout with the Vintage Delovely! I am going to pick that book up to read during my LONG 18 hour drive to Disney World next week :)
Enjoy the movie, I haven't seen it yet!

creative patti said...

Too funny, a friend sent me an email regarding this book, suggested that I read it. Going to Barnes and Nobles today to look for it, so I really hope I can find it. Sounds like a grat book. Thanks for the chance to win! I love Unity!!!

Connie said...

I have not seen the movie but have heard I need to!!!

michib said...

I have not read the book yet, but am hoping to see the movie with a girlfriend. Let us know if you enjoy it.

Jules! said...

I am so GLAD I read the book this summer b4 I saw the movie....I am sure the movie wouldn't be as meaningful if I had not read it FIRST! I think it is always hard to make a great book a good movie. ♥ the book.

Stampin' Nana said...

I havent seen the movie..yet.. but plan to.

I love that card, and need that set now to make one for my sister.

I adore your page, I love b/w photos with 1 special color one in it.

very nice work.

Donna said...

Beautiful projects!
I read the book last year and loved it. Planning on seeing the movie next weekend.

Stephanie said...

Planning on seeing the movie with my girls. And then going for pasta afterwards. Will definately read the book. Thanks!!

Martha said...

oh no I'm gonna want these sets!
Still reading the book, half way through it.

Kristen said...

Beautiful layout and Cute as can be card. Love how you used the stamps on the layout. I only have a couple unity stamps so far and I think they are FABULOUS, looking forward to getting more. As for the movie, planning to see it, but a friend and I think it would be fun to read the book first. Good thing I read fast :)

foursenuff said...

I have not seen the movie. Tried to get my hubby to go with me, but we saw Inception instead. Great movie too!!!

Bethany said...

I have not seen the movie or read the book, but I have plans to do both. Soon. By myself. My husband would strongly object to subjecting himself to a movie like that. LOL

Janet said...

What beautiful work! Thanks for the chance to win.

Cindi said...

what a fun thing to do with girl friends. have never heard of the book or movie..is it good?
:)

Amy said...

Haven't read the book, bit plan to before I see the movie. Anything with Julia in it is usually great.

Purple Princess said...

I am currently reading the book and I love the journey she takes and what she learns. I have been reading it slowly and reflecting on everything she is learning.

I am planning on seeing the movie with my friends too!! I hope you have a great time.

Your projects are awesome! I love the first set of stamps!!

Lisa H. said...

such beautiful work! seriously love that layout.

Lillian Child said...

Our "dinner and a movie" group is going to see that movie next week - I've read such great things about it. And I'm usually one to read a book BEFORE I see the movie, but that won't happen this time. SIMPLY ENJOY!!!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

OH MY--those stamp sets are a MUST HAVE! LOVE your card and that LO is beautiful! LOVE IT!

I have heard mixed reviews on the book--not sure if I will watch the movie (yet). I need to read it first--I have a list of things to read....so it might be 2012 before I get to it:)

Nicole W. said...

I am still trying to get through the book! I am almost at the end of the "Italy" section and I refuse to watch the movie until I am done with the book ;)

Carol said...

I love how Liz goes on a "No Carb Left Behind" food quest! Having recently lived in Italy for two years, I can so identify with that sentiment!
