It's all Harry Potter's fault!


I am sleep deprived today. I took my daughter and her friend to Barnes and Noble for the festivities surrounding the release of the final Harry Potter book. There were tons of people crawling through the aisles of the book store. We didn't pre-0rder the book so I told my daughter we wouldn't be sticking around to stand in an hour line to purchase the book. I'll take my chances on another day. She was practically begging me to go to Target today to purchase the book so we can get started on reading it. She doesn't want information about the book leaked out before we have a chance to read it. We have a tradition of reading the Harry Potter books together at bedtime. We have been doing this since we read the 2nd book when she was in 2nd grade(we skipped the first book because we already saw the movie. I went back and read it with my son Nicholas recently.)

This is a scrapbook page of said daughter. We did this page spread in my scrapbook club in June. I design the layout and everyone in the club makes it. I was dying to do a girly page and this was it. I used Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery and Rose Red craft ink and card stock. I used the onboard chipboard for the big flower. I inked it up with Cameo Coral Craft ink and then dumped Irridescent Ice embossing powder over it and heated it with my embossing gun. The other flower accents are done with our flower punch. The stamped image is from the now retired Mixed Bouquet stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great page, love it.

We do the same thing with the Harry Potter book. We take turns reading it aloud. I do have to confess I read ahead on my own.
