Inspired by Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Awe and Wonder full Alice BollIt’s been a busy month with LOTS of scrapbooking!

That’s always a good thing!

This layout was inspired by one of my all-time favourite movies, the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder. I’m participating in the layout at day challenge, LOAD517 Legends of Hollywood.

In Willy Wonka when the characters first enter the chocolate room, with candy everywhere and the amazing chocolate river, the expression on the actor’s faces is real. The director wouldn’t allow them to see the set until that moment so their genuine reactions could be captured. They gaze around the space in awe and wonder, it’s a truly magical moment.

The prompt: What moment in your life left you in awe and wonder? Where do you find awe and wonder in your daily life? It might be a big moment or a small one, let’s honour it today.

Here’s a look at the layout, and don’t miss the process video below!
