Harry Potter Blog Hop

It's BLOG HOP time!!!!!!!

I have been fortunate enough to be asked to join Bugaboo's Harry Potter Blog Hop as I am the Biggest Fan for October. I was thrilled to be asked!!! Even though I am gone this week (in fact, I am at the airport at this very moment), I just couldn't give up the chance to work with my little friends from Hogwarts.

{Blog Hop Instructions are at the bottom of this post}

I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I have seen the first 5 movies probably 50 times each and can recite right along with the characters. Plus I have completed the Harry Potter Lego game on the Wii **heehee** I can't wait for Deathly Hallows in 3D at the theatres in November!

I was able to work with Draco Malfoy. I tried to keep him as true to the character as possible - he is wearing a green Slytherin sweater :)

Oh that mischievous Malfoy!

"Wingardium Leviosa" is a levitation spell :)
Card Ingredients:
Bugaboo image; Recollections cardstock; Making Memories paper; Copics; Cuttlebug Script folder; Label Nestie; Craft Smart Black ink; Recollections ribbon and pom poms; stamping bella gems.
